Judd {37 weeks} Full Term!

Sorry this is such a bad picture. It's from my phone and is extra blurry. Guess that kinda works in my favor, though. Haha!



37 weeks
 
Size of baby: Size of a
watermelon.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, if they still fit! I've gotten to the point where most of my shirts are too short. It's lovely. And jeans? No way! I opt for only yoga or stretchy pants these days. As seen in above picture.

Gender: it's a BOY! Judd Richard

Movement: All the time. And he feels SO BIG. The OB told me he would start to slow down in movement towards the end. Well, that hasn't happened yet. It is weird though because now when he moves his leg, he usually moves his arm at the same time so I'm seeing big movements from the top and bottom of my belly simultaneously. CRAZY!
Sleep: Sleeping is getting not so fun. I am up to use the restroom at least 5 times a night and it is so hard to get out of my bed. I also have quite a few aches at night in my belly/lower abdomen.
What I Miss: I miss being able to stand up and walk around without the pressure on my hips and bladder. Gravity really hates me right now. But I know this is short term and the pain is SO SO worth it!!  

 
Cravings: No real cravings at this point. But I am trying to get in all the fatty foods now before it is all over. SO BAD!
 
Symptoms: Weight gain? hahaaha! I'm at the point where I gain my most weight. I have gained about 8 lbs in the past 6 weeks. But, that's just how I do it in my pregnancies. At least I didn't gain 30 like I did with Ava. I'll take the 8 any day over 30!
Lower back ache after standing more than...oh...30 seconds?
Just overall pressure from the baby being so low.
 
Best Moment this week: Dr. Howell said I am 1.5 cm dilated so I know the time is coming soon that I will be holding a precious baby boy in my arms.
And I am SO EXCITED!!

  1. I'm 37 weeks as well and I totally feel you on the middle of the night bathroom runs...I'm SO TIRED of rolling out of bed a million times! I say rolling because I can't just hop out of bed like normal! I feel like a beached whale! HA! :-) Congrats on full term!!! Can't wait to see pictures of your sweet little man!!!

Ft. Worth, Texas
After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at sheshebows@yahoo.com and thanks for stopping by!
