37 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:  How did we get to 37 weeks already?? Time is FLYING. My husband and I can NOT believe Reese will be here in 3-4 weeks!! We are SO excited. Still so nervous. But SOOOO excited to meet our little girl.
 How Far Along: 37 weeks!

Weight: 131lbs.
Total Weight Gain: 21lbs. Still right on track!
Stretch Marks: None
Maternity Clothes: All I wear. Comfy cozy!
Gender:  Girl!
Names: Reese Elizabeth
Movement: As always, she is quite the mover! She is getting so strong, some of her movements do hurt or take my breath away. Her little bootie likes to stick up between my ribs sometimes, or she'll jab me with a heel. Sometimes she'll even scrape the heel across my stomach! And since she's dropped and low now, I feel lots of movement very low. It's weird. If I'm sitting in a position that has my belly resting on my thighs (weirdest feeling ever), it's fun feeling her move and hit my thighs. Keep growing, baby girl!
Sleep: Sleep is still going very well. My hips have started hurting again and I've been longing to sleep on my back, but I won't let myself.
Exercise: Exercise? What is that? I've been attacked by the pregnancy migraines the last two weeks (hence not posting last week). It has been AWFUL. But I'm beginning to feel better now and I told my husband he needs to encourage me to bundle up and start walking!
Symptoms: Acid reflux (waking up with vomit in my mouth is the best way to wake up!), hip pain at night, overall discomfort every once in a while, etc. etc. I still feel really good though, besides the headaches!
What I miss: Sleeping on my back/stomach. Can't wait to be able to do that!
Cravings: Twizzlers! Which my husband helped ease by buying me a TWO POUND BAG of them! Don't worry, I've barely even dented the bag. Even though most of the time I don't feel hungry, I eat like a pig. It's very weird and I don't like doing it. At this point I just love to eat!
Aversions: Nothing!
Things to do: Pack my hospital bag. Pre-register at the hospital. Install the car seat. Make sure clothes are well organized. Buy more diapers?
Best Moment this week:  Hearing her heartbeat at yesterdays appointment! After a miscarriage, hearing her little heart is the BEST thing ever. So reassuring. And my sister-in-law had her baby this week! That was great! I got to meet him about 5 minutes after he was born.
Looking Forward To: Christmas and New Years! They are one step closer to meeting our baby!
Belly Pic:

This was last week, at 36 weeks. Reese is no longer measuring behind! I'm 0cm dilated and 40% effaced. I love hearing about progress! Makes those uncomfy checks way more worth it!
