37 weeks-- full term!

Wow I can't believe it-- I am officially considered "full term". Only 3 weeks from my due date & baby Jackson could be making his appearance at any time!

An exciting event occurred yesterday evening. Totally had my first real painful ish contractions. Had three 30 second long contractions about 20 min apart. They stopped after that though so not the real thing but it may mean I am dilating more and getting ready. So exciting!

How far along: 37 weeks 2 days
Size of Baby: Watermelon!
Total Weight Gain: 32lbs. Yikes!
Maternity Clothes: uh definitely
Gender: We're having a baby BOY!!!
Movement: he seems to like to shove his butt out haha and I still get kicks to the ribs despite the fact he is so low!
Best thing this week: our ultrasound, & finding out that I have made progress in the dilation/effacement dept!
Sleep: go back and read my last update and it's still the same.
What I miss: I'm overall just getting over being pregnant. I know I will miss it later but at this point I'm just uncomfortable and ready to meet my little boy.
Cravings: Meh. Nothing this week really. Got my sweet tooth back though and have been trying not to overdue the Halloween candy!
Symptoms: Tiredness/exhaustion, pelvic pressure, lots of Braxton hicks contractions
What I’m looking forward to: My ultrasound and appt on Thursday. Anxious to see if I've progressed any further and how my fluid level is. Also looking forward to d day and meeting my son!
