37 Weeks: Full Term Baby!

How far along?: 37 Weeks.. 5 Days. FULL TERM!

Maternity clothes: No new maternity clothes.

Stretch marks: I have got some stretchies on my stomach now around my belly button but they're small and so I won't complain because they're really not that bad. I have some on my sides above my hips as mentioned last week and then the usual ones on my boobs!

Sleep: I've been waking a lot more this week to use the toilet. I'm thinking this is because you are now even lower and more engaged.

Best moment this week: Starting my Maternity Leave!! I blogged about it {here}.

Miss anything?: It would be nice to have some alcohol and some mushroom pate! Also I miss being able to do my teeth and wash-up without my scoliosis back pains going into spasm. And my gosh eating dinner is a problem now as the bump is getting in the way, so I miss being able to eat dinner comfortably. 

Movement: Your still moving and grooving away in there and you have had lots of hiccups again this week. I can feel your head very low!

Food cravings: Erm, nope don't think so. Still drinking orange juice loads!

Anything making you queasy or sick? Same as last week.. just getting some nausea but not because of anything in particular.

Gender: BOY!<3

Labour signs: WELL.. I had a sort of 'show' on Monday at exactly 37 weeks. Luckily I was off work because I've been very poorly with a flu cold, so when I phoned the labour ward and they asked me to come in it wasn't a problem. Daddy was off too and so came with me. They did a speculum and it hurt so bad that I asked {screamed} for them to stop. They did additional tests and put me onto a monitor to check your heartbeat for around 20 minutes. After about an hour they said I was fine and they let me go. I haven't really had much since on the 'show' side of things. 

However, I keep thinking that I'm going into labour with you because I'm getting random cramps in my stomach, lots and lots of pressure and twinges {like shooting pains} down below, I've started nesting {but then I am a clean freak anyway!}.. I've just had lots of signs but as of yet nothing solid to say 'Yep, I am in labour.' But I know you are definitely aware that delivery day is coming!

Symptoms: See above. Other symptoms include my usual back ache and my usual tiredness. 

Belly button in or out? Out.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Been quite 'out of it' this week as I've been poorly, but am currently feeling SO much better and really happy that I'm back to feeling like me!

Looking forward to: Meeting you!! Daddy and I are getting so impatient and totally excited!! It's such an exciting and nervous feeling knowing that you could come at any moment.

Also This week: As mentioned above I've been very poorly but now I'm feeling better I am actually feeling great! 
Starting Maternity Leave came around so quickly! 
And it's Easter so that means lots of choccie and family time :-)
