37 WEEKS


Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 37 Weeks
Size of Baby: Hardy is the size of a
stalk of Swiss chard
(length about 19 inches,
weight 6 1/3 pounds)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 30 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: I am enjoying maternity dresses
because they are so cool, but they offer no support.
Thank goodness for the belly band...it has been
my best friend in pregnancy.
Gender: B-O-Y
Movement: Hardy is definitely running out of
room. I cannot imagine how cramped he must be
in there. He still kicks around though.
Sleep: I am definitely conditioned for Hardy's
arrival if he feeds every two to three hours
since that is how often I already get up.
What I Miss: So many things...I am just
ready for this little man to be outside
of my body! I have really missed chocolate this
week...it is just not worth it for the heartburn
that comes when I do eat it.
Cravings: Mac 'n Cheese...I got my
fix too when Kyle and I had a lunch
date at Ajax...the best mac 'n cheese!
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions, heartburn,
stretch marks, a BIG belly, overall pain...
my body just hurts!
Best Moment of the Week: Everything that I
really wanted to get done before Hardy's arrival
is finished! Props to my sweet husband, because
he has been working really hard. The car seat
is installed, the stroller and pak 'n play have been put
together, the crib bedding will be ready on
Tuesday, and I even finished all 3 books I wanted
to read. For my Type A personality this is
great...I feel very accomplished! :)
Oh, one more thing...on Monday I was
dilated 1 cm and 40% effaced. Making progress!
