37 Weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Emersyn is the size of a watermelon!

Due Date:
May 8, 2012, but I'm hoping she comes a little early:)

Weight Gain: Up 3 lbs this week. Maybe E got a growth spurt? Running total: 25 lbs.

Symptoms: The belly is out of control! I'm still having contractions, and my feet and hands sometimes swell when I'm on my feet a lot.

Cravings: Milk.

Aversions: The contractions bring some nausea with them, so in the midst of the worse ones, nothing sounds good.

It's hit and miss. Sometimes E is up until 1am, making it impossible to sleep, other times she lets me hit the hay pretty early and I sleep with just a few wakeups.

I am loving: Getting closer to meeting Emersyn! And, the bookshelf we had to reorder is in, assembled, and looks great!

I miss: Sleeping in my bed. Not hurting.

I am looking forward to:
Meeting with our birth photographer tonight and putting our house on the market tomorrow!

I'm spazzing about: Finishing up photography projects before she arrives.

Best thing about this week: Having Blake's parents down this weekend to work on the house- we're so close to getting everything done!

Milestones: FULL TERM today!! And, the nursery is DONE- pictures to come!

Movement: Mostly consists of big rolls and limbs sticking out. When the sore spot on the top right of my belly flares up and she decides to stick her elbow right there it is not pleasant at all.

It's a...: Girl!!! Emersyn Grace:)
