37 Weeks

How far along: 37 weeks 5 days today.  Yep, still alive (and pregnant) over here!
Gender: Girl!
Belly button in or out:  Out.
Maternity clothes: I still haven't unpacked much of my clothes since we moved because I figured most of them wouldn't fit for awhile anyway, but finally found my shorts so I don't have to hang around the house wearing Tyler's gym shorts on hot days anymore - thankfully, as stylish as that was. ;)
Stretch marks:  Nothing yet.
Sleep:  Aside from a couple really hot nights, I've slept pretty good.  I don't really have any trouble getting comfortable, just the frequent trips to the bathroom are getting a little annoying.
Best moment of the week: While the excitement of knowing we'll soon be getting to meet our newest baby girl is a bit overwhelming, we're also trying to enjoy the last bit of time we have just the three of us.  We were able to take Ellie to Davis Farmland over the weekend, which is what we had planned to do on her birthday but ended up getting rained out.  She had the best time and we can't wait to bring her back sometime!  I highly recommend it if you're local and haven't taken your kids there yet. :)
Miss anything: Already excited about my post-baby delivery grinder.
Movement:  Her little foot is always kicking right under my right rib cage!
Cravings: Fruit with every meal for the most part.  Also, I think I ate my weight in chips + guac this week.
Queasy or sick: Nausea is still coming and going a tiny bit.  Lots of Braxton Hicks that make it feel like I have a belly full of bricks approximately half the day.
Looking forward to:  So many people have asked me lately if I'm getting nervous, and while I wouldn't say I'm exactly looking forward to going through the pain of birthing a child again, I also wouldn't say I'm really nervous about it.  It does, however, go against every planning bone in my body not knowing when it's going to happen.  So, obviously looking forward to seeing if this week is going to be THE week! :)
