Stick a fork in me...Im done!! (Hopefully?)

37 weeks!! We made it to FULL TERM!!! Not that I was worried since I have had a textbook pregnancy...but now, I really don't worry about anything! I know that if I go over a bumpy road or lift something, that everything is going to be just fine! And maybe I will put myself into labor, haha! 
I have to say I have really felt great this week! Last week I felt sooo bad that I didn't know how I was going to make it through 3 more weeks of this...but I guess I got a second wind! Last night I got home and after dinner was antsy, and so Josh and I went to the Mall to get him  a few things. (I figured the walking couldn't hurt either) This is completely out of the norm for me lately! Once I am on the couch after dinner...I rarely move! :) But, I am liking this new found energy, and hope it means something! 
Tonight Josh and I are going on a date. :) I decided this week that I need to be patient and enjoy these last few weeks Josh and I have- just the two of us. I have been sooooo caught up in getting ready for the baby, so I think now that I feel ready, Josh and I can enjoy the last few calm weeks. :) I will take some nursery pics this weekend and post them soon. The room is done except for wall decor which I haven't decided on. But, Brett will be in our room for the first few weeks so I have a little more time.

37 weeks!!

I think the black is slimming (ha!) I don't think I grew too much this week, but my belly is ALL IN my lap when I sit. He definitely feels a lot lower.

*How big is baby?:  19-20 in and 6 1/2lbs

*Sex: Sweet Baby Boy!

*Maternity clothes: I hate all my maternity pants and shorts...they are tight now! Its amazing to me because some of them were too big for a while..and now they don't fit at all! Every day I come home and put on one of Josh's t-shirts and yoga pants! I am so excited to wear normal clothes again soon! Even if I will have a beer belly! ;)

*Stretch marks: Nothing new...hoping he comes out soon so it stays that way!

*Sleep: OK...still waking up a lot...not sure why, just uncomfortable

*Symptoms: Fat feet, fat ankles, fat face, but feeling energized :)

*Movement: Yes, but I think it has slowed a little. He doesn't have much room so is more like slow movements and limbs sliding around

*Food cravings: Not really anything lately...I feel like Im not as hungry lately.

*Labor signs: Lower back pain and menstrual cramps but NO PROGRESS :( The Dr. said baby is nice and low at -1 station, but the doors are still closed!

*Belly button in or out: Flat on the bottom but the top sticks out...

*What I miss: Being able to sit up, taking a deep breath, walking normal, sleeping on my back, sleeping through the nite, not peeing every 5 minutes, my ankles! I think you get the idea ;)

*What I'm looking forward to: Having a baby.....there is a full moon on the 23 so Im keeping my fingers crossed!

*Best moment of the week: Being full term!
