37 Weeks Pregnant | 3rd Trimester

How far along? 37 weeks &  1 day
Total weight gain/loss: 5 pounds
Maternity clothes?  Yes. They are making me look ginormous. Or maybe that is the baby! haha
Stretch marks? Had them before pregnancy and getting a few new ones. I am ok with that.

Food cravings: Anything sweet. Which is strange because through this whole pregnancy I didn't want sweets at all. 
Best moment this week: My hubby coming home for the holidays. 
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my belly. Oh boy I can't wait!
Movement: Yes but different. More painful jabs & swipes. Ouchie mama. Breathing right & not waddling.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth still.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Unknown
Labor Signs: Yes I have been having a ton of contractions. They are becoming a little more painful. I can manage though. I usually breathe through them all.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Off. Just tried to put them on & that is a no go.  
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy & nervous. I am ready for this baby to come on out. 
Looking forward to: Nothing because my hubby will leave me soon & if baby is not here in the next week he might miss the birth. I really hope not.
Doctor's appointment: Urine was clean. Blood pressure was up high. My doctor was concerned so she did an NST in the office. Baby's heart beat was low 117 bpm because I had worked third shift the night before. She gave me crackers & water and the baby started waking up right away. This kid is a sleepy baby. She then thought I had Preeclampsia so I was ordered to do a 24 hour urine & get blood work done. Blood work came back perfect. My urine was also in normal range. 232 and they like to see it under 300. I am now on maternity leave because I can't seem to get my swelling down. Not sure what that is about. I have a ultrasound, NST, & doctor appt on Wednesday. I am excited to give my birth plan to my doctor. 
Randoms:I feel like this baby is creeping back up. But my belly grew a ton. I swear this thing doesn't stop!
