37 Weeks

How far along: 37 weeks (1/24/16)
Baby size: Head to heel, about 19 inches.  And about 6-1/2 pounds. 
Total weight gain: 35 pounds.
Maternity clothes: I'm wearing all maternity clothes or yoga pants.  
Stretch marks: There are a couple new ones that just popped up on my belly.  
Sleep: I have been waking up a lot during the night this week.  Often to pee, or just shift and get more comfortable. 
Best moment this week: Our last meeting with our doula.  We went over labor positions and relaxation techniques.  Now I feel like we are ready for baby to come!
Miss anything? Being able to move like normal!  It hurts to move--even the tiny motion of turning the steering wheel when driving (the slight shift of my pelvis) hurts!  
Movement: Yes!  He moves a lot now!
Food cravings: Carbs--particularly bagels!
Have you started to show yet? Yes! 
Gender: It's a boy!
Labor signs: No real signs yet.  At my appointment on Friday (1/22), I was told that I'm a full 2cm dilated, 60% effaced, and baby is in -1 station (no wonder I'm in so much pain!)  The nurse practitioner I saw said chances were good I'd have him within a week, so we will see!
Belly button in or out? Flat, but starting to stick out on the top.
Wedding rings on or off? On--permanently 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!  But the past 2 days I've been a little more irritable and my patience is thin.
Looking forward to: Baby K2 arriving! :)
