Bumpdate - Week 37

Hello Full Term Baby!!!! 

We had an ultrasound today, and got to see her tiny toes and listen to her heart beat. 

She is measuring at a little over 5 pounds  and in the next 2 weeks could gain about a pound more. 

Little lady was only 6 lb 3 oz at birth, so I'm figuring this one will be a little bigger. - but I don't think she'll be much bigger. 


If I'm being honest, I am feeling huge, way too many hot flashes and the baby is pressing on my sciatic nerve (which means when I have a contraction, my butt goes a little numb and I get a shooting pain down my leg).

I'm still nauseated most days, and all I want is coffee and cupcakes. 

[insert pathetic cry]

Blood Sugar Report. 
So, lately my fasting blood sugars have been on the rise. My OB was this close to prescribing me a pill to take before bed until I asked her to give me a week to get it under control with more exercise and a more strict diet. 

[read - no more cupcakes]

Estimated arrival.
If she doesn't come on her own, I will be induced at 39 weeks. 

To be honest, I really want her to stay out for at LEAST another week. We are having a yard sale on Saturday, and have some plans for the evening / next day. So, it'd be ideal for her to stay put. 

Weight Gain / Blood Pressure
I'm up another pound. So my totally weight gain is 8 lbs for this pregnancy. 

My blood pressure has consistently been 110/68 for the last several appointments. Sometimes it's lower, but 110/70 is the highest it's been this pregnancy. 

*does anyone else write down and track thier blood pressure and weight during pregnancy? I have a whole page in my day planner dedicated to it and another page that tracks the babies heart rate.*

Big Sister Report. 
Our big sister is starting to get VERY clingy to me... She always wants mom... I try to have lots of conversations about when baby comes and what will be different, what will be the same... She's only 14 months, so obviously she doesn't totally understand - but I know she knows change is coming. 

She still doesn't sleep well at night, butnshe does nap during the day very well. ... Sigh... 

Looking forward too...
