37 weeks

How Far Along: 37 weeks
How Big is Baby: Between 5.5 and 6 lbs.
Weight Gain: 27 pounds
Sleep: Still trying to get comfortable all night and I get so stinkin' hot even with the AC cranked up.
Health: My calves, ankles, and feet are swollen but my blood pressure is still good- 114/74. My back and upper abdomen are aching. Yep, I'm just uncomfortable.
Clothes: All maternity except for dresses and tank tops that I've bought a size up in.
Best Moment this Week: Finishing up the nursery.
Food Cravings: Salt and fruit. I visited McDonald's quite a few times this week. I'm so surprised that I only gained 1 pound!
Movement: Tons of strong movements.
Gender: She's a girl.
Name: Olivia Grace
Labor Signs: Frequent Braxton-Hicks contractions and a lot of pressure. I am about 1 cm dilated but the doctor described it as a "loose" 1 cm and I was quite close to 2 cm. I'm between 20 and 50% effaced as well.
What I Miss: Feeling comfortable.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Meeting Livi!
Milestone: Making it past 37 weeks and 4 days- when I was induced and delivered Julianna. I've never been this pregnant before.
