Full Term: 37 Weeks!!

How far along?
 37 Weeks! We are officially full term and baby Finley is welcome to come at ANY time now!!

Baby's size: Winter Melon
We actually had an ultrasound last Wednesday and baby was measuring at 6 pounds, 11 ounces (which was in the 75th percentile, I believe!). The ultrasound technician commented that she didn't know where I was hiding such a good sized baby, she even double and triple checked the measurements! Of course, these are just estimates, and could be off...we will see soon! Big brother only weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces at birth!!

Maternity clothes: Just a few non-maternity left.

Best moment this week: Our ultrasound...even though baby was being shy and refused to let us see her face!! Always wonderful to see that baby is doing good! Finishing up the nursery! (Pictures to come soon!). Reaching full term!
In non baby related news: Shaun's birthday and party!!
Miss anything?  Being comfortable. And productive! And my foot...this thing attached to my leg does not belong to me, I'm sure...it's probably double its normal size...ugh!

Movement: Yes, though she definitely seems to be running out of room!

Food cravings: Ice.

Food aversions: Just drinks.

Gender: GIRL

Labor signs: Still having contractions, and they've definitely become more regular...and are actually doing something at least! At my last appointment last week, I was 50% effaced! Hoping more progress has been made at my appointment tomorrow! 

Sleep: What's that!?

Symptoms: Back pain. Contractions. Swelling. General exhaustion. Forgetfulness....you name it! 

Belly button in or out? It's flat again...

Looking forward to?  Seeing if any progress has been made at the appointment tomorrow. Finally welcoming our baby girl!
