37 Week Bumpdate!

36 Weeks and 5 days!

How Far Along?37 Weeks TODAY! 
 Size of Baby P? A bit over 19 inches, 6 1/3 pounds
This week's major developments:
Your baby is now considered "full term," even though your due date is three weeks away. If you go into labor now, his lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. (Some babies need a bit more time, though. So if you're planning to have a repeat c-section, for example, your practitioner will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there's a medical reason to intervene earlier.)
Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.

Maternity Clothes? dresses, dresses, dresses! Most are actually not maternity but a bigger size!
 Weight Gain?I lost a pound at my appointment today!! Still around 30!
 Stretch Marks/belly button?Do not know how in the world my belly still does not have stretch marks but it doesn't! Belly button still flat!
Sleep?I had one night of full sleep that felt amazing last week, but back to my normal 3 hours spells! 
Food Cravings?Pop tarts, heated, with butter! LOVING MILK... I can't get enough, which is weird considering it is 100 degrees outside!
What I Miss?Not constantly sweating! Humidity in BAMA is terrible, pregnant or not!
What I am loving? At our doctors appointment today we got to do an ultrasound to see if he was in position! He is ready!! He weighed around 7 pounds and my belly is measuring two weeks ahead now! He still had his hands in his face and trying to get that thumb in his mouth! He even had hair!!! I could not believe it... Lee and I both have very fine hair but she said he has it (at least on the back of his head...haha). I am still dilated a fingertip but she said thinned more.... thankful for a great doctors appointment!
Movement? Definitely... he is really working right now as I am typing! He also gets the hiccups a couple times a day and they last for 10 minutes! I think he gets "hard hiccups" like his mommy;)
