37 weeks

*How far along?: 37 weeks...full-term today!
*How big is your baby?: a WATERMELON. do you REALIZE how big a watermelon is?!
*Total weight gain?: ha...about that...um, I gained SIX pounds in 2 weeks. holy water retention. I wasn't lying when I said I no longer had ankles...elephant feet is what I currently have.
*Sex: BOY! Grayson Benjamin:)
*Maternity clothes: I am becoming a whiny baby about maternity clothes.
*Stretch marks: 2 tiny ones where I didn't use my tummy rub. so yep, now I am REALLY lathering it on!
*Movement: He is running out of room...however, his foot is literally in my ribcage and it hurts like crazy. drop, baby, drop.
*Sleep: I guess it could be worse. Waking up a bunch to go to the bathroom & my sides still hurt throughout the night.
*Best moment this week: we installed the carseat and my hospital bag is packed & ready to go!
*Food cravings: my stomach has no room for food.
*Labor signs: BH contractions are a little more frequent. Doctor did my first "down there" exam on Wednesday and pretty much my cervix is currently closed for business. Not what I wanted to hear.
*Belly button in or out: my belly button officially came out of the closet.
*What I miss: being able to see my ankles.
*What I'm looking forward to: labor. seriously! I am totally okay with him deciding to come a little bit early:)
