37 Week Bump Date

So we are finally in the home stretch! Less than 3 weeks until the due date. I refuse to even think about going late at this point, although I know its a possibility. We just can't wait to meet our baby boy! At our 37 week checkup on Tuesday the doctor said I'm "fingertip" dilated, which is the same as my 36 week checkup; so no progress. :( I have been having braxton hicks and every day I'm having new pains of some sort. I know it can happen anytime, I'm just trying to be patient and rest as much as possible.

How Far Along? 37 weeks! That's considered full term, even though my due date is August 20th.
Size of Baby? Winter melon? I'm not sure what that is, but he's definitely over 6 lbs, and my doctor is guesstimating  closer to 7 lbs.
Maternity Clothes? This is a silly question. I'm down to like 5 outfits I will wear in public and around the house its tshirts and pj pants. I've even resorted to Jason's boxers when I don't feel like doing laundry.
Weight gain? +30
Stretch Marks? Nope. I'm pretty happy about that one.
Gender?  BOY!!
Sleep? Its not that great. I'm up to pee every hour, sometimes I have to get up and get a snack, and sometimes I just can't get comfortable enough to sleep.
Food Cravings? We had to make a late night run to Krispy Kreme this week, but I'm not being picky these days...I just want to eat.
What I miss? Caffine, wearing my rings, being skinny, being comfortable in general, having more than one pair of shoes that fit...I could go on but I'll stop there.
Symptoms? Heartburn, swollen ankles and feet, uncomfortable most  all of the time, fatigue...
Belly Button? Finally out.
Best Moment of the Week Month? We've had some wonderful showers, finished the nursery, finished breastfeeding and childbirth classes. Lots of good times!
Looking Forward To? Having this baby - preferably sooner rather than later!

Stay tuned for a birth announcement!
