37 Weeks = Full Term!

How far along? 37w5d
Total Weight Gain: 22 pounds
How much does baby weigh? Close to 7lbs I would say
Stretch Marks? None, but I'm over caring about whether or not I get them
Sleep? Is ever elusive
Best moment this week: Getting my hospital bag's finally starting to feel real
Movement: Tons of it
Food Cravings? All food
Labor signs? Irregular false contractions
Belly button in or out? Popped and nasty as ever
What I miss? Seeing my feet
What I'm looking forward to? Finally being able to meet my little girl
Milestone: Full Term. Holla!

I can't believe I'm finally full term! She can come whenever she's ready. I had my first internal today. I'm 50% effaced and 1cm dilated. It's progress, but my doc said it doesn't really mean anything. I can go into full labor tonight or it can take three weeks. But I was excited for progress.

My contractions are coming more and more. Sometimes they're regular and sometimes they're sporadic. I need to go to the hospital when they come 5-10 min apart for a solid hour. So I'll be on the lookout for that.

I didn't get a chance to put a pic up yet, but I will. Not that there's much new to see; still a big huge belly
