37 Weeks

Full term! What a wonderful milestone. I am so very thankful to have passed this point in my pregnancy.

And do you see those beautiful Mother's Day flowers in the background?? Carter Man is so sweet to buy those for me along with a few other presents. I'm still wondering where he got the money..... or how he got to the store.

Quick recap of my appointment last week:
-Gained a pound {23lbs total}
-BP was high
-If BP is high this week, my induction will be moved up from May 24th to May 17th. I'll be 38w2d.
-I'm currently 5cm and 80%
-GBS test was negative

Okay, so besides my sinus infection {and despite my post yesterday} I've been feeling pretty good lately. Well, yesterday was a good day, lol. Just general 37.5 week uncomfortableness but no real contractions or cramps yesterday, last night, or so far today. I'll take it.

I've officially given up on sleep. It's no longer possible. I've actually been super early to work these past few days just because there is nothing else for me to do except get up and start getting ready. Even Carter won't wake up with me. Such a brat!

Oh, and I know a lot of people are checking in on me {thank you!} so I wanted to let you all know that I've asked my wonderful friend, Steph, to be a guest blogger when I go into labor. I'll text her with updates when Brynn finally decides to make her arrival and then she'll keep you all up-to-speed right here on my blog. =) I know I always like to read updates when someone I know goes into labor, so I thought some of you might as well!

Pregnancy: 37 weeks {belly pic taken at 37w0d}

Weight Gain: 23 pounds total

Sleep: I'm done sleeping until this baby girl is 3 months old. If I'm lucky.

Gender: Girl

Name: Brynn Sophia

Feeling: Ready. Very, very ready.

Health: BP is starting to rise again. My induction date may be moved up to May 17th because of it. I'll find out later this week!

Movement: I'm going to post a video I took of my baby girl moving around in my belly. It's slightly amazing. =)

Belly: Stretch marks just showed up! Thanks baby girl =) Still measuring 5 weeks ahead.

Next Appointment: This Friday, May 14th at 37w6d.

This entire pregnancy I've actually felt that May 14th would be THE day. And I still have this feeling, I don't know why. So maybe it will be. Only time will tell.

@ Steph- Thanks again mama! =)

@ Kelly- Nope, I'm really 37w but just have a big baby girl in there! I can't wait to see what she weighs when she gets here, but I'm perfectly fine waiting until the 38w mark!

I actually think that, if I hit the 39w mark, I may need a c/s (but will try an induction first!) Hopefully she listens to her mama and comes next week!

@ Brianna- That was my very first thought when I looked at the picture! Are my eyes even OPEN!?!

@ Audrey- GL mama, I hope you have your little boy soooooooon! =)

Kaybee said...

I think she's definitely going to come soon. I think you'll go into your appointment on Friday and they'll say you're 6cm dilated and your bag is bulging. We need you to go to the hospital right now :)

@ Kaybee- I would actually LOVE that ;)
