37 weeks

How far along: 37 weeks
Weight gained: I can't believe this but.....37 pounds....I guess that's a pound a week;)
Maternity clothes: Yes, I'm running out of room. My shirts are tight. I am wearing Brandon's shirts to sleep in.
Sleep: Not very good. I am getting up a lot to pee and my hips hurt.
Best moment of the week: Getting to 37 weeks (full term) and seeing her on the sonogram.
Food cravings: Pasta, salad, fruit, and my favorite bed time snack ginger snaps and milk...Ive been very hungry lately.
Heartburn: yes, mostly at night
Labor signs: nope
Belly button: barely there
What I miss: being able to get out of bed like a normal person
Weekly wisdom: Infertility worries stay with you forever...I've been getting more and more nervous the closer we get.
Milestones: 37 weeks (full term)

I went to the doctor today. I am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. The head is engaged and the doctor said we are on the 10 yard line. I'm thinking it will happen around the 13th...but we will see:) I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!

HEre are my 37 week belly pics. My computer is acting up...it would not let me rotate them!!

I have to agree with missing being able to get out of the bed like a normal person. :) I am so jealous that you are dilated. At 36 wks 4 days i was not showing any signs yet. :( I go back this Thursday... I am praying for some cervical changes. ;)
