37 Week Update

Well well… we meet again. 🙂

I am now 37 weeks pregnant and slooooowly closing in on the grand finale.  My Wednesday Dr. appt went well.  She said that Quinn is still head down and ordered me to get one final ultrasound next week.  I can’t wait to get another glimpse of my baby girl!

Belly Update

37 weeks

37 weeks pregnant

Sleep- I have had 3 or 4 nights of just a few hours of sleep due to itching (yea…that is back) and just being wide awake.  Again, I think my body is just trying to tell me, “Get used to it, babe.  You aren’t going to sleep for 18+ years.” It would be nice to sleep but since I am done with work, I just make sure I get a nap the next day if I feel I need it.

Cravings- I am definitely in the mood more for sweets so I have been obsessing over melon, kiwi and oranges.  I also made banana ice cream to try and LOVE IT!

healthy banana ice cream

  • 2 bananas
  • 2T peanut butter
  • almond milk (enough to get it to blend)
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract

Add to blender then freeze.  Easy peasy.  You could top it with choc chips, granola, almonds, coconut flakes, more fruit, etc.  There are tons of other flavor options and as I make more I will share.  I want to make sure they are legit before I recommend them and have you hate it.  Then you would never trust me when I say something is good!

Mood-  Anxious.  I am also a little emotional off and on.  I think just the thought of “Will it be today or do I have to say that for four more weeks?” is getting to me.  I want Quinn to come when it’s the right time, but can’t I pick when that is?!  I think my hormones are also fluctuating to start preparing my body for the huge hormonal changes of labor.

Comfort-  I have had a few days that I feel like I got hit by a semi/train/demo ball/Rosie O’Donnel and it hurts.  My legs were achy and my back was feeling strained.  It was also after a few nights of not sleeping, but on the other days, I am still feeling great and tackling tons of projects.  I have to remind myself to sit down and rest BEFORE I feel the need.  I still don’t know if I have had any Braxton Hicks contractions or early labor contractions…everyone says, “You’ll know.”  So I am guessing I haven’t had any yet?!

teal nursery

I am so ready for her to come since I finished up her room this week!  I love it and it turned out better than I expected.  I refinished the hutch and side table pictured, plus made her bed skirt and crib bumper.  I also refinished a dresser and built a changing table in one closet.  I will do a full nursery update with details later.

I am going to scoot for now to finish watching the Heat and Bulls play and enjoy some QT with my man!

Enjoy your weekend!

Are you irritated with how rude Chicago is being during this game?!

Did you experience any of these symptoms during pregnancy?
