37 1/2 Weeks

Not sure why I didn't update the last couple of weeks! I could have sworn I did a 37 week update!

As of today I am officially the most pregnant I've ever been. I had Greyson the equivalent of 3am this morning.

Also, at 36 weeks I had an ultrasound because the doctor wanted to check her position. Turns out she is breech which sucks. On top of that the machine estimated she was 9 lbs. The u/s tech suggested she was probably a pound less, so still 8lbs at 36 weeks! Already possibly bigger than Greyson was when he was born, and since I'm still pregnant, this baby wants to cook longer.

As far as her being breech, I have a procedure called a Version tomorrow morning where the doctor will try to manually flip her into a head down position (pushing around on the outside of my belly). It is supposed to be uncomfortable/painful. I'm really not looking forward to it. But the idea of a c-section doesn't sound that great either. Greyson is a handful and I can't imagine not being able to pick him up for a couple of weeks.

How far along: 37 weeks 4 days
Total weight gain: I'm up to 209
Stretch marks: possibly some new, hard to tell
Sleep: I sleep better than last pregnancy BUT it must not be restful, I wake up just as tired as I was when I went to bed...
Best moment of this week: Thinking this might be our last weekend to socialize in a while we hung out with friends both days this weekend so that was fun
Movement: Yep - just started slowing down the last two days, I think she is cramped
Food cravings: sweet things and coffee
Symptoms: Tired, soooooooo tired, worse maybe than first trimester tired. I go to sleep feeling exhausted and wake up feeling like I didn't sleep. I keep getting random bouts of nausea the past week or so, I never had this with Greyson. My back started hurting which sucks, never had that with him either.
Gender: Baby girl, Lorelei
Labor signs: Nada
Belly button in or out: In - flat-ish
Wedding rings on or off: Off
Happy or moody most of the time: Calm
Looking forward to: having my body back
