Week 37 has been pretty eventful for us! I went in for my routine OB appointment late last week & they told us that the baby was measuring small for the second week in a row, so I would need to have an ultrasound. Without going into too much detail, there are just some minor complications from my previous c-section, but baby girl looked good & the tech estimated that she already weighs 6 lbs. 5 oz. So exciting to think about!! They told us we may have her sooner than my initially scheduled c-section date, which totally has me on pins & needles, very impatiently waiting. But, we kept busy of course, Harper woke up sick Saturday morning with a cough & high fever. Poor girl was miserable, we spent most of the weekend snuggling on the couch while tackling some house projects since the weather was nice. Happy to report that she is finally feeling like herself again this morning & today’s ultrasound looked good, so now we just play the waiting game. Soooo excited for her arrival!!
How far along: 37 weeks
Weight gain: 30 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Maxi dress season is upon us & it is glorious.
Stretch marks: No
Belly button in or out: Out (and made an appearance in this week’s picture apparently)
Sleep: Sleeping great, surprisingly.
Best moment this week: Seeing the babe at our ultrasound, watching her move around & feeling her kick at the same time just make me so excited. Harper was hoping we would be watching Nemo when we went into the room with the big screen, but was not let down when she got to see “baby sissy’s heart!”
Miss anything: This week I am getting a taste of what it will be like to not lift Harper or overdo it, which is really hard & I am not looking forward to that post c-section. Ready to feel like myself again for sure, but I know I will miss feeling the baby when she is here too. Also, I can’t help but miss an icy cold beer on the patio in this beautiful Spring weather.
Movement: Lots of shifting around, baby girl has definitely dropped but never fails to kick me right in the lungs every so often.
Cravings: All things sweet or sour! Apples, lemon, orange juice with pineapple, etc. I will be sad when food doesn’t taste as good once the baby is here, snacks are always a little highlight of my day! 😉
Looking forward to: Baby day!! Can not wait to have her in my arms!5
