How Far Along: 37 Weeks, Hannah is FULL TERM!!!
Size of baby: Hannah is about the size of a watermelon! I believe it too, I can tell she's a lot bigger in there. The nurse said today that based on the 36 week ultrasound report she's in the 84 percentile and is measuring five days early! No wonder she was trying to get out the other day....
Total Weight Gain: 23 lbs, I somehow lost a pound this week
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes
Gender: GIRL!!! Hannah Lee Townsend
Movement: Hannah LOVES to move around! She's been keeping me up at night having a party in there but now it's not so fun, it hurts
Sleep: Oh sleep, I should have appreciated you more before I became pregnant. I haven't been sleeping too well this week, I'm waking up a lot during the night and having trouble falling back asleep, mostly because our wiggle worm is too busy in there and is keeping me up.
What I Miss: Moving around like a normal person. I am SLOW!! I also feel HUGE!! Oh, and sleeping through the night, I miss it.
Symptoms: Heartburn daily, absent mindedness, swelling, shortness of breath, lots of BH contractions. Since I've gone on rest the swelling is SO much better!
Best moment this week: That's a hard one. I was so excited at the idea of meeting her earlier this week but was also happy to go home at the same time because it just seemed too soon. I can't wait to meet her but I don't want her coming before she's ready so I'm being patient and hoping she makes it just long enough for my Dr to get back into town. This morning at our Dr appt I had to be monitored again just to make sure everything was ok from Tuesday. I had a few contractions but nothing consistent and Hannah was sleeping (probably because she was so exhausted from the party she had the night before that kept me up for two hours!) so the nurse gave me some sugary food and drink to wake her up. It worked! She was on the move after that and it was even hard to check her heart rate because she was so wiggly.
Breakfast of champions, Hannah loved it!
Hopefully I'll get at least once more weekly update next week before our baby girl arrives! Our bags are packed and we're ready to go whenever she does arrive!
