37 weeks

37 weeks - 5.31.11

I’ve been slacking on my weekly posts lately. I couldn’t believe the difference in my belly from my 33 week post!

How Far Along: 37 Weeks, 5 days! (day of picture) Today, 6/3/11, I’m 38 weeks, 1 day

Size of baby: According to Baby Bangert is the size of a watermelon, over 6 pounds, and over 19 inches long from head to heel. BUT…I had an ultrasound last week and they are estimating Baby Bangert at 8 1/2 lbs already!

Maternity Clothes: Pretty much ALL maternity…minus a few t-shirts from the hubby!

Gender: It’s a girl!!! We’re still working on names…we’ve had 2 deadlines come and go and still no name. We are down to 3! Pray we pick one soon!!

Movement: She is a busy little girl, too bad she can’t just kick her way out of my tummy! I feel her moving around all throughout the day. I love it though…there is a tiny little life inside me!

Sleep: Pretty much non-existent! But everyone tells me its getting me ready for what’s to come. Tuesday night I think I may have gotten 2 hours total. Sad smile

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, a bigger selection of clothes, sleep, and buying regular clothes (the maternity section needs to expand)!

Cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary. Ice cream and Mexican…but those are favs whether I’m prego or not!

Symptoms: Feeling well for the most part, just very achy & tired by the end of the the day.

Best Moment this week: We spent our long holiday weekend with some of our friends from KC! They were so hopeful Baby Bangert would make her arrival while they were in town. But no such luck. Picture_277

At my 38 week appointment I was dilated 2+ centimeters and my Doctor is hopeful I’ll go this week. But I think that is because she is on call this weekend! Winking smile I am more than ready to meet my little girl! I’ve been walking every night in hopes it would help get her here sooner!

And I have to give a shout out to Callie over at The Wannabe Athlete, her and her husband welcomed their little guy into the world this week! And I read a post she did last week that was just what I needed today. So for all you prego’s out there that are anxious and ready to meet your little one, click here!

Happy Friday everyone!

You look amazing Darci! Hope you pick a name soon too! Maybe see which of the three names she most suites when she comes! :) All the best! xo

Yes, you must practice patience. Your little girl will come when she's good and ready and not a moment sooner. I guess now is not the time to tell you I was 8 and 10 days past my due date?? And with both I was CERTAIN they would come early. Frustrating, but it was on their agenda. Try to enjoy these last few days of being pregnant. You will miss them. Although I do not want any more babies, I did enjoy being pregnant and just the knowledge of carrying a life inside me. Nothing quite like it.

And don't stress about the name too much. Maybe you can't decide upon a name because your baby is waiting to reveal herself to you so you can have the perfect match. You wouldn't be the first person to give birth to a baby 'X'.
