Bumpdate: 37 Weeks

How Far Along: 37weeks and 3 days (2/14/2013)

Size of Baby M:   Baby M is the size of a Winter Melon (wth is that?). 
Fun facts for this week : He's practicing some skills: inhaling, exhaling, sucking, gripping and blinking.  We actually could see him breathing in the sono last week...pretty cook stuff!  He's also getting his first sticky poop (called meconium) ready for his first diaper.....Grrrrrreat.

Weight:  Grand total is still right around 12.5-13lbs.  Hopefully won't have much time to pack any more on!!! Although I'd survive I'm sure :)

Exercise: I'm back to HATING the stupid elliptical.  Bleh.  Thank God for Netflix, and Hulu on my phone.  I'm now all caught up on Scandal, and finished season 1 of Hart of Dixie...can't find the second season so that's sad (big girl problem right there!)  So today i started watching 90210 (the new version)....there's 92 episodes, 45 minutes long...should last me a couple of weeks!  (I like mindless TV while working out if you hadn't caught on to that!).  Anywho.  Got all my workouts in....even though I'm pretty sure about every single day i tried to talk myself out of going in the evening.  But then i remember i won't be able to work out for several weeks, so there should be no excuses!!!! I'm so hard on myself :)

Symptoms: Acid Reflux has gotten better.  Still a little heart burn at night when I'm in bed, but nothing near as bad as it was before.  Thank God.  That was horrible!  Right groin is giving me trouble.... it's not bad until i walk around too much or try to run/jog.  Yesterday after walking around too much at work, and going to the gym....i almost had to sit down in the Dillons parking lot because i was pretty sure I'd never make it to my car without having to have someone put me in a cart and wheel me there.  It was horrible.  I very much look forward to being able to walk like a normal person soon..... 

Cravings: Sweet tooth has been making a strong appearance this week....real bad.

Sleep: it's gotten a little better with the acid reflux disappearing.  But still up once or twice to pee....

Stretch Marks: No battle wounds yet!!!

Gender: Still all boy!!! Still not 100% on name....we've discussed what we think he'll need to look like for each name...   I feel like Connor James would be for a more light haired, light eyed, soft complexion type baby.  So we'll go with that.  If he's darker...dark hair, dark eyes, he'll be Declan Ryan.  Or maybe we'll just throw them both out and go with something totally off the wall....Paco!

Maternity Attire: Mix and match...

Looking Forward To: Another low key weekend for us!  Trav detailed my car yesterday, so we'll be getting the car seat installed this weekend.  We're also getting the carpets cleaned....and having a cleaning lady come over to deep clean all the shit i really don't want to.  I need to repack my bag (just make sure i have everything) and baby M's as well.  Oh and we have birthing class on Saturday....I'm dreading this.  I really don't want to go.  We'll probably be the only English speaking people there...well that is if anyone else is there....and it takes ALL day Saturday.  So much other stuff I'd rather be doing!  Maybe we'll watch a video online and call it good :)

Oh and Baby M's cousin will be making his/her appearance Monday the 18th!!!! We're SOOOO excited for Bridget and Kyle and can NOT wait to meet the little guy/girl! (it's a girl...i just know it!)

and i cut far I'm loving them.... but i know how quick that can change!! Whatcha think?
