37 Weeks & Featured Mama

To start off, Jen over at A Girl in Pearls & A Boy With Toys has me featured today as her featured mama! Run on over and check out her blog! She's preggo, as well, and I love following along with her pregnancy! Thanks for the feature, Jen!

And now on to the weekly update. I haven't been blogging a lot lately mainly because for one I'm just tired, I haven't had much to blog about, and I've been trying to get things ready for my sub because my last day at work is FRIDAY! I am SO ready and cannot wait to be able to just hang out at home and get ready for Lexi to arrive! We are getting so close!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Around 26-27 lbs. Geez.
Gender: Girl, Lexi Belle
Movement: Her movements are pretty amazing now! I just love watching her. I know she is SO crammed in there since my torso is like 5 inches long. Poor little thing! I'm waiting to see a hand or foot press out! I 've seen pictures of that and think it would be SO COOL to see!
Stretchmarks: Nope, linea negra (sp) is here for sure!
Sleep: I've pretty much given up on a full nights sleep. Oh well, get ready for it, right?!
What I miss: Nothing really. The swelling is back so maybe normal sized ankles and feet. Now, my wedding ring :(
Cravings: Not much of anything.
Symptoms: Contractions, Braxton Hicks, swelling, Carpal Tunnel in my hands :(
Best Moment this week: I'm just looking forward to Friday! Last day of work! Also, we go back to the doctor for our weekly appointment on Wednesday!
Random Updates: I think we are pretty much ready for out little one. By ready I mean her bag is packed, her room is ready, and our bags are semi packed. It's just getting so real!
