37 Weeks Pregnant with Boo #2

37 weeks means this kid is officially full term. While I'm really hoping he stays in there for at least another week (maybe even two... I have a lot to get done before he arrives). There's immense relief in knowing he'd be okay if he came.

  • This week Bentley is the size of a winter melon. Anywhere from 18.9-20.9 inches long and 6.2-9.2 pounds... that's a really big range of possible weights!
  • At my check up this past week, my doctor was a little concerned about my measurements. Up until now, he's been measuring right on track for how many weeks along we were, but suddenly we were measuring 2 weeks behind. We scheduled an ultrasound next week to check fluid levels, the placenta and get an idea of how big he really is. 
  • More of the usual heartburn, aches and pains- My waddle has become even more comical, though everyone keeps telling me how great I look.
  • I'm slowing down a lot more this week- getting winded a lot easier and feeling more and more exhausted. By the end of the day I'm feeling completely spent... try explaining that to a 2 1/2 year old!
  • I'm not getting too swollen (yet!), I can still get my rings on and off easily and most of my shoes fit, so I'm really grateful for that. With Fynn I could only wear flip flops for the past month or so, that was fine in June, but wouldn't fly with all the snow and below zero days we've been having.
