Week 37: Bump Update

I'm considered full term today!

The little baby under the text is actually a movable 3D image and plays a fetal heartbeat.

And I think the baby was pretty damned determined to let me know that because from 2 am to 5 am, I had strong, regular, INTENSE contractions. Not quite "fall to your knees screaming WHY GOD WHY" painful (as everyone has told me they will get) but intense enough I couldn't walk while I was having one. I had to do a lot of breathing and it really helped that Brian made me laugh so much.... even though it hurt like hell to laugh in the middle of a contraction. I started to get nauseous whenever I was having one (a common feeling, thanks, Google!) I was just about to go to the hospital at 5 am... when all of a sudden, the contractions stopped! and I didn't have another one all day. I was pretty paranoid to fall asleep, and didn't end up closing my eyes until 8 am. I got up at noon.

I had a hair and nail appointment today. Brian's cousin, who was doing our hair, was joking around with me that she didn't know what she would do if my water broke while I was there. I told her she'd finish my hair ;)

I also think the baby is sitting a little lower this week. Suddenly, it's easier to get in and out of bed, I can breathe a little deeper/easier, and I constantly feel a little more pressure on my hips/pelvis. What do you guys think? Brian said I don't look as big as I did last week:

Last week- 36 weeks
This week- 37 weeks
I definitely feel bigger than I was last week! Hahaha... I guess every week I am a little more pregnant :)

No doctor's notes today- I didn't have an appointment because he was out of office. That will come Monday. I will probably be violated checked for any more progress, since I will be 37 weeks and 4 days, one full week after the visit to the hospital.

(L and) D-Day is fast approaching.... any time between oh... NOW and 21 days from now! When I logged into Baby Center this morning to read my weekly update, the first thing it said was

Welcome to the waiting game.
Yeah, no joke. Thanks for that. 

The dog is terrified of me. He won't even look at me. It's as if he knows... something... is very...very... different... about this woman. Lol cracks me up that he runs from me every time I enter a room. He sees me and you can just see it in his eyes " OH GOD ITS THAT WOMAN AGAIN RUN AWAAAAAAY"

...Do you think he knows? Hahahah. I chase him around too! Max come baaaaack! It's my new favorite past time.


  1. It's been way too long since I've read your blog, because, shamefully, I've been out of the loop, but OMG!!! It's almost time!! I've been waiting for this. ;) lol. You look incredible, really - I can see the glow and everything, and I remember you saying how hawt Brian thought you were... Uh, no wonder. You exude awesome.

    I'm going to go back and read all that I've missed, because I need to find that link of yours from the gender testing pee stick thing... Cause I just found out I, too, am expecting. Holy shit! Lol.

    I can't wait to see from here on out!

  2. Hi, just checking up on you :)
    I literally can't believe its been almost 9 months already! LOOK at're adorable pregnant. Haha, maybe the dog is confused and doesn't understand why your stomach is expanding? If I don't get to you in time, have a safe delivery! And congratulations to you and Brian :)
