Week 37! Full Term! ♥

DSCF0657   DSCF0658

*This week, Gideon is about 7 pounds!* (That's what the dr said today!)

How far along? Week 37! ♥ Only 3 weeks left!!! Where has the time gone???

Best moment this week: Last weekend at Easter was pretty spectacular! Also, celebrating David’s b-day. I did get my hair done, and I love it! Getting my teaching lesson for class out of the way was such a load off my shoulders! ♥

Miss Anything?  Reaching my feet…although I can maneuver myself to tie my shoes and paint my toenails. :-) Also, I have been running…lightly…like, only half a mile or less at a time (I’ll alternate jogging and walking and end up doing 1-2 miles a couple of times a week…) And I really miss running without the breaks.

Movement:  Yes! He’s really active lately. I’ve been having BH contractions like crazy, and he’s really active between them. It’s pretty funny, actually. He does move during them sometimes, and it hurts like crazy!

Food cravings: JUNK FOOD! All I really want is chocolate or french fries or a hamburger or hotdogs…yum! But I bought groceries the other day, and have been good about eating my fruits and some veggies and yogurt! (I bought this raspberry yogurt that I love!) And I have been cooking some, again. Friday, David went to the school for “Man Night” and didn’t get home til 2am. So, I had a chick-flick night where I took a nice long bath (long enough to watch a movie…) and cooked a nice meal. It was so good! Fish, quinoa, and asparagus with a cream sauce on top. It was delicious!


Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks contractions all the time! I’m also dilated a little…we’ll see how much today.

Belly Button in or out? Out!

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Pretty happy. Although, I’m starting to get anxious about not having everything ready to go when he comes! And the fact that I have an actual baby in my tummy is starting to sink in…

Weight Gain So far: Not saying. lol…ok, ok…about 33 lbs. Yuck! Which is why I need to eat healthy!!!

Looking forward to: Having school work done! Also, being done with work. I am so unfocused, all I can think about is pregnancy and baby Gideon! I just want to be his mommy, now! But I can wait a couple more weeks. :-)

Prayer Needs:

  • Getting everything done!

  • Staying focused on school

  • Eating healthy

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

John 16:11

 This verse gives me comfort because I know that all the pain is worth it in the end!
