37 weeks {babybrink#2}


Size of baby: a bunch of swiss chards- no, I don't know what that is :) I thought 37 weeks was considered full term, at least that's how it was when I was pregnant with Mia! But I just discovered that they officially changed "full term" to 39 weeks. Which is okay with me! I'll be busy soaking up my time with Mia as our only child for the next 2 weeks anyway!

Movement: we discovered at my appointment last week that baby boy is breech (little stinker!) so movement became stressful for me after that! I kept trying to guess what body parts I was feeling and trying to determine if he flipped yet (on his own. Praying he does so that I don't have to go to the hospital to have my doctor try and flip him later this week!) I finally took a chill pill and am back to enjoying the movements (and reassurance that baby is doing good in there!) because whether he flips or not, he will be in my arms before I know it! (But like I said, STILL praying that he flips on his own!)

Cravings: I don't really have cravings anymore. Peaches still hit the spot! And I get trigger cravings anytime I see a photo of something yummy, mostly sweets ;)

Miss anything: being able to bend over, ha ha! Movement is becoming more and more restrictive for me the bigger he gets! I also really miss snuggling Mia comfortably... but she's been cuddling more on the bump and that kind of makes my heart skip a beat!

Random: I totally have a little "outie" belly button! This never happened with Mia, it was just flat, even with my belly. This time around though, it's totally turned into a little outie. So weird to see it through my shirts in photos, or by reflection of a mirror, ha!

Best moment of the week: one day last week (actually, it happened twice in the last week) Mia was in the other room (pretend) playing with her brother! She kept calling him by name and it was the CUTEST thing! My heart melted and I can't WAIT to see them interact once he's here!!

That's how I was but for my whole pregnancy... I never really had cravings except for what everyone else had or if I saw a picture lol. I'd pack my lunch for work thinking I'd be good and then someone had something else and I instantly hated my lunch and wanted theirs. It kinda bummed me out. I hoped I had some weird crazy craving!
EEEKKK!!! SO SOON! Come on baby boy, flip!

There were so many "your baby is the size of a __" that I had no idea what it was. I do believe Swiss chard was one of them. haha Can't we compare them to burgers instead? (; Still praying your little boy flips around on his own. He's already being a stubborn little guy. I think it's so nice Mia was "playing" with her brother already. Especially since a few weeks ago she was in the "I don't want a brother" phase. haha. Oh kids, they are going to be the best of friends!

You are SO close! I remember ALL these feelings, but hang in there, he will be here in your arms before you know it! SO so exciting and well worth the wait! XO

I hope he turns soon. Warren Pat has an outie, his brothers think its cute haha

I hope he flips for ya- definitely just praying for a safe, easy delivery for you both!! :) Can't wait to see that little guy!!

Funny about changing full term! So many things change with pregnancy in the course of a couple years. You may be on your second/third/etc but apparently it is all new each time anyways =)

You are so close!! And Mia probably was actually playing with him! I totally believe they are apart of things more than we realize, so who knows, may she was really talking to him :)

So many weeks I had no idea what vegetable they were referring to when talking about the size of the baby. Can't the people of those updates find more common foods to compare to? HA!
I had the same thing with my belly button - the first go around it was just flat, the second time it really popped out. I think the outties are about the cutest things ever on pregnant ladies.
You're looking fabulous. Literally, ANY day now. :)
