HOW FAR ALONG: 37 weeks
HIS SIZE: 19 inches long & 6 pounds; the size of a honeydew melon
WEIGHT GAIN: 32 lbs
SLEEP: I have been sleeping exceptionally well this week (minus last night where I was up from 12-3:30 AM). That being said, I have also been exceptionally sleepy during the day.
SYMPTOMS: I went to the doctor yesterday and had a sonogram to get an estimate of how big A is getting. At 36w6d, they put him roughly between 7.5-8 pounds. This weight approximation can be off up to 10% +/-. If the estimation is correct and he put on half a pound until his due date, he would be around 9-9.5 pounds. Ryann was 9 pounds 1 ounce born at 39 weeks. Based on my belly size, I feel like he is bigger than she was at this point but I guess we will see when he make his debut! On another note, I am already dilated and 50% effaced. When I went into the hospital to be induced with Ryann, I was 0 cm dilated and 0% effaced so this is very welcome news. Praying that I go into labor naturally this time so I can avoid induction. Any tips on making this happen are welcome!
STRETCH MARKS: None
MOVEMENT: He is super low and I can feel his feet kicking all the time.
THREE THINGS I AM LOVING RIGHT NOW:
1: Chuy's - Usually I only feel so-so about this place but lately have been craving the chicka-chicka boom-boom enchiladas and tres leches cake. The cake is an even weirder craving because I am not a sweets person. Chuy's will definitely be on the menu for Super Bowl Sunday!
2: Sweatpants - Is there anything better when you are super pregnant? My fave pairs are my Wildfox and Lululemon pairs.
