37 Weeks

How far along? 37 Weeks- full term!
Total weight gain: More stress=more weight loss for this momma! Just praying for a healthy baby and healthy delivery at this point.
Maternity clothes?  I rock the maternity leggings anytime I can and will rock them even after the bump is gone. I love them. Other than that I choose long shirts and am wearing my regular clothes.
Stretch marks? None. So far....          
Sleep: I'm pretty much in a constant state of exhaustion, but that hasn't stopped the annoying bouts of insomnia.                     
Best moment this week:  At my appointment this week Colson's heart beat was great and I was starting to dialate. Nothing to get excited about according to my doctor but I'm excited about it! I also experienced false labor. I'm not sure if that was the best moment this week but sure an interesting one.         
Miss Anything?  Sleeping on my stomach. It is something I will never take for granted again...I miss it so much! Also...having someone to rub my back when I'm in pain. (Which is most of the time)             
Movement: My belly is always in weird shapes from little body parts and he always has the wiggles. I just love watching and feeling him move.            
Food cravings: Not like I had. Most of my cravings have vanished and to be honest when I feel like eating something I just blame it on being pregnant so I feel less guilty about it. I still love my ice cream though!  
Symptoms:  I am still congested (although the spicy Chinese food really seems to help that), back and hip pain, along with tingling in my legs and upper belly. Colson is sitting on a nerve that has taken away some feeling. Also, I have Braxton Hicks contractions throughout the day and night along with an episode of false labor.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nada
Happy or Moody most of the time: Emotional!!! I'm happy but now is not the time to read a sappy love story, watch a sad movie, or do something extra nice for me...I will start to cry! Happened twice at work today. And, I called a doctor's office and the lady that answered the phone did NOT make me happy so I called my mom and told her the story of what I had just experienced and it bothered me all afternoon. I was so upset! I'm over it now. (Can't you tell)  
Looking forward to: Meeting my sweet little man! I am looking forward to my weekly doctor appointments now also. Makes me feel more prepared!
