Three Weeks

When I was three weeks pregnant, I wasn't even pregnant at all! Now I only have three weeks left in this beautiful journey called pregnancy, and I can't believe it. In honor of the fact that I am officially Full-Term today, I will complete a little survey about my pregnancy.

How far along? 37 Weeks
Total weight gain: Due to my ongoing case of morning sickness and my crappy Gall BLadder, I am up about 12 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight... Keep in mind I lost a lot of weight during the first trimester, so my overall weight gain is much more than 12 pounds.
Maternity clothes?  Yes, of course! But I still wear some pre-pregnancy clothes too. 
Stretch Marks: Uuuuuhhhh, unfortunately they have creeped their way along the bottom of my tummy. They get worse every day, but truthfully, I don't really care. I'm not the bikini-wearing type anyway, so...
Sleep: I want it. Allllll. Theeeeee. Tiiiiiiime.  I usually come home from work and take a nap ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Then, I sleep about 7 hours a night. It's a good night if I wake up two times. Usually it's more like five. Poor Jed.
Best moment this week: Feeling this girl move like crazy every night.
Miss Anything? Sleeping through the night, French fries, chicken nuggets, coca cola and other sodas.
Movement: Yep! She moves most at night. She is head down and her little feet are always kicking my right side. Her bum is always bumping against my stretched-out, sensitive belly button.
Food cravings: Lemonade, sour things (mostly in the first and second trimesters), chocolate, soda (I don't indulge), and random things here and there! Pickles, too, of course.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Every morning when I drink water or something cold, I fight a nauseous feeling. In the beginning I would get sick all the time, but hair in the shower, sink, etc would make me want to die.
Gender: They tell us it is a girl. BUT I keep having dreams it's a boy, and that freaks me out a bit.
Labor Signs:
my pelvis feels like its going to crack in half, and I feel a lot of pressure. When I am cleaning or cooking, my belly will tighten up, which can be uncomfortable. I think they're Braxton hicks. 
Symptoms: I could go on for dayyyyzzzzz. My morning sickness has come back the last few weeks, and I've even ralphed a few times. Stuffy nose, swollen feet, pain all over, and itchy belly. Nothing too miserable though!
Belly Button in or out? out, flattish
Wedding rings on or off?
 on, thank goodness...
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both... I'm a mess.
Looking forward to: Seeing what she looks like. Holding her little hands. Looking into her eyes. getting to know her better. Watching Jed and baby j bond. Showing her off!

Any guesses on when she will come? Due Sept 19!

Girlfriend...Braxton Hicks SUCK. I had them with BOTH of mine. And they always happened in the middle of trying to go to sleep, talking, trying to stand up, ect. But I guess they are beneficial to helping labor come quicker.
SO EXCITED for you!
