37 weeks pregnant bump update!
How Far Along
37 Weeks 3 Days pregnant
Total weight gain
Ailey is the size of a watermelon (maybe), her lungs are likely mature, and they say that she is only early term and not considered full term until 38 weeks. We know she is at least 6lbs from the ultrasound they did last week… and she will probably gain a half a pound a week until she arrives.
Movement: Slow, sometimes painful, and erratic. The craziest thing happened last week – she had her back pressed up against my stomach and we could see her breathing from the outside. It was precious, but also a bit freaky!
Symptoms: Same ole heartburn and throwing up fire in my mouth every time I burp.
I’m 2 cm dilated and my cervix is soft… should I mention that the midwife who did my “exam” last Tuesday didn’t even check me?! And my doctor on Thursday was appalled that she peeked up there with her eyes and that was all?
She’s dropped – very low – 1. I can breathe. 2. I have shooting pains down my inner thighs when she turns her head. 3. My clothes fit different.
How I’m Feeling: Anxious. One minute I am ready for Ailey and the next I think she can stay in there a little longer. Life is about to change in a million different ways. I think no matter how prepared I try to be, we will never be truly ready for what it shall be like as a family of four!
My third trimester is almost coming to a close at 37 weeks pregnant! I am very excited to meet Ailey!
