37 weeks- December 15th

How far along: 37 weeks

Best moment of the week: I am full term!
Food cravings: none really
Food aversions: nothing.. go figure.. :) 

boobs sore- no
cramps- a little bit

tiredness- yea
irritability- I have my days...
acne- none!
bloat- swelling is definitely coming into my feet
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- gone
boob leaking- I had this happen again! 

*warning of TMI- my lady bits have been feeling bruised!! I don't understand why.. but it is slightly annoying! But fun to know I am getting so close to birth and that is probably part of the reason! 
 Movement:  less, but she is moving, 
Gender: Girl! 
What I’m looking forward to: Her arrival! 
What I miss: bending over with ease. :) being thinner! No stretchmarks
Next appt: Dec 19th
How big is baby:Your baby is now considered "full term," even though your due date is three weeks away. If you go into labor now, his lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. (Some babies need a bit more time, though. So if you're planning to have a repeat c-section, for example, your practitioner will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there's a medical reason to intervene earlier.)
Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don't be surprised if your baby's hair isn't the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz.
