How I’m feeling: Large and in charge! Cankles are just a reality at this point, lol! Mr. FSL and I went shopping at the Nike store on Wednesday and my feet were too swollen to find shoes that fit! I feel like my face is starting to get the oh-so-chic woodchuck look too. The countdown clock in my kitchen is at 18 days left until the due date. I’m getting quite nervous about the arrival of this baby.
New and Exciting: At my last doctor visit, I was told that I am now 60% effaced! In other news, there is a car seat installed in the back of the FSL “Mommy-mobile”. This is getting so real now!
Funny-But-Not-So-Funny: My doctor noted my abnormally short torso. Now that my belly has started to drop, I have literally 2 inches from the crotch of my pants to where my belly starts to balloon out. My pants won’t stay up! I wasn’t blessed with a booty, even during pregnancy. Nothing is holding my jeans up at this point.
Rings Fitting Fingers: Tight
Belly Button Status: Smoothed out!
Cravings: Salty Cape Cod potato chips! Anything involving Nutella.
Aversions: asparagus (still) Yuck! I’m wondering if I will ever like it again!
Baby is the size of: a winter melon!
The baby at 37 weeks:
- He or she’s practicing some skills: inhaling, exhaling, sucking, gripping and blinking.
- Baby’s getting his first poop (called meconium) ready for his first diaper. Ew.
