37 Weeks

My doc said 36 weeks was full term but I've also heard 37 weeks was considered full term. Either way I am full term :).

At my last doc appt. I was 36.5 weeks and she checked to see how far I was coming along. My tummy measured at 36 weeks and I was 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. She said that was good! That doesn't exactly mean I'm going to go into labor tomorrow or anything, in fact, I could be stuck at where I am for 3 more weeks. She also said the baby was still head down and really low down so she actually has starting dropping like I thought. That will explain the constant pressure on my bladder. I just think it's odd that I haven't started feeling any BH contractions. Doc said I could've had them and just not noticed.

Baby size: 6 1/3 pounds and 19 inches

Cravings: Apples and sweets. I made a valentine's cake with chocolate frosting that is sooo yummy. I've probably eaten 3/4 of it myself, oops.

Symptoms: Since the baby is dropping, there's lots of kicking on my bladder, which means even more trips to the bathroom. I still don't have the pregnant waddle, though. I've been told I don't walk like I'm pregnant at all.

Sleep: Still good, but Adam sometimes has trouble sleeping because I apparently move a lot.

Highlight of the week: Getting my mani pedi
