How Far Along: 37 weeks 2 days!
How Big Is Baby: Winter squash! I had a growth scan a few weeks ago and the doctor told me baby was growing right on track. I was so happy to hear she was healthy I forgot to ask the weight estimate and now I am sure she has grown by then.Total Weight Gain: 20lbs. I think this may be all I will gain or a few more pounds. My weight has tapered off which I guess is normal in late pregnancy. I get full so fast due to my stomach being squished. I am trying to eat several small meals a day, but it still isn't nearly as much as the monstrous proportions I was eating in second tri.
What I Miss: See above.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Finishing her nursery 100%. I am doing all her wash as we speak since we finally got her dresser yesterday. Her room is almost done, but still needs some finishing touches. I know I should have been more prepared as she could show up any day now, but I should be done by Monday. So Peanut, stay put until Monday at the very earliest!!
Milestones: She is just about finished being cooked. She is still practicing the skills she will need outside the womb and is getting bigger. Her brain is still developing, but she is already considered full term. Yay!Symptoms: heartburn, peeing a lot, and bad skin, and random sporadic itchiness.
Other: Loving maternity leave. I love sleeping in and resting when i want to. I realized though that when I worked full time the house was always clean, but not perfect. Now that I am home all day looking at the house I notice things like a smudge on the mirror or some lint on the carpet that i never noticed when i was so busy. So now I crazily clean all the time. My husband loves me being home because I now do 100% of the chores (except he does his own laundry and he does cook sometimes since he enjoys it as is an amazing cook) instead of 50% of the chores. Unfortunately, it will be short lived because I am sure our house will be less than tidy when the baby arrives until we get in a routine.
