Week 37 Update

Bear with me over these next few weeks as the content on here will be sporadic and not very groundbreaking (not that it ever was). I'm in crunch time with not only the arrival of little Charlotte, but with Christmas just about a week away! I'm so not ready for this!

This week feels good. I've reached the full term milestone. In just a few short weeks we should be meeting our little girl and I couldn't be more ready!

How far along?: 37 weeks, 3 days
Baby is the size of a: Winter Melon
Total weight gain/loss: 45lbs
The Bump: I feel like it's growing by the minute!
Symptoms: Swelling, numbness and fatigue. But that's to be expected at this point
Food Cravings: I'm really into chewing ice right now. Strange, I know, but it could be worse!
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope
Sleep: Still touch and go. Some nights are better than others.
What I miss: Normal use of my hands. Since my fingers have gone numb, it makes it really hard to craft and do the things I love. I can't wait to get the feeling back in my hands!
Weddings Rings On or Off: Off
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Girl
Movement: Lots and lots of movement
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new to say here. I'm ready for my old wardrobe.
Labor Signs: Things seem to be progressing normally. I'm having Braxton Hicks contractions every hour or so. Nothing too painful as of yet.
Best Moment of the Week: Enjoyed a nice relaxing weekend that included an epic 3 hour nap on Saturday. I don't remember the last time I did that!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: The big day! I've said it before, but now that we are full term I can safely say she can come any day now!


  1. Getting so close! Hope your next 3 weeks pass quickly :)

  2. I follow you on Instagram, I had the same issue towards the end of my pregnancy - swelling and numbness. It does go away right after birth! It is pretty annoying until then though!
