baby moore: 37 weeks

How far along: 37 weeks

Size of Baby: Romaine lettuce

Gender: We're still not telling, but we do know!

Weight Gain: I gave up on this battle. I've gained 32 lbs, and I'm okay with it. It is what it is.

Movement: This baby is far more aggressive with movement than Spencer ever was. At night, baby seems to come alive and feel the need to rip apart my insides with huge, tumbling barrel-rolls. I'm ready for baby to come just to stop that pain! While the movements used to be tender and sweet, baby has literally run out of room.

Sleep: It's kind of a mixed bag over here. When I lie down, baby decides it's time to move. I've been taking half a Unisom, so that's helped sleep eventually come, but I still wake a few times a night to use the restroom.

Workouts: Ancient history. I walk to pick Spencer up from daycare, and to get there and back is about a mile and a half. Because of my sciatic pain, which I never had with Spencer, running just didn't happen. I'm excited to really get back in the swing of things after baby though.

Maternity Clothes: Leggings. All day, every day. I wear tank tops that are normal, but all my bottoms are leggings of the maternity variety. Mamas, if you're looking for great ones, Blanqi has been my go-to...worth every penny.

Cravings/Aversions: This baby is not a health food nut. I really want chili cheese hot dogs, sushi and coke. I've also been extremely partial to strawberries and pineapple, so that helps. Ice is my go-to lately, as well, which I'm sure has something to do with the fact that I can't eat much anymore. That dreaded morning sickness has hit again in full force.

Best Part of the Week: I'm down to weekly appointments. I have a test today where we'll check the fluid levels around baby, see how much baby has dropped and whether I've dilated further. We're almost there, folks!

Can't Wait For: Baby! Seriously. It's time :)

  10. I am way behind on reading, so I tried to find out if this little bundle has made it's way out! That belly looks beautiful!

  11. I know I'm a year late on this one, but it's actually really helpful for me as I am not going through the pregnancy fun. So reading your tips are awesome! (Even a year later haha)
    I've never heard of Blanqi, I will definitely have to check them out! I already have been living in my leggings, so finding new brands is always great!
