Thirty-seven Weeks

Michaela is approximately seven pounds now. She is still very active and I feel her movements throughout the day. Poor little thing has the hiccups on a regular basis, but the nurse at the fetal diagnostics department said that's a good sign of lung development.

I think she has dropped. My mom commented that I look different, and I feel a lot of pressure in lower places. I constantly have to pee, and that means I'm up several times a night, whereas before I could get by with one trip to the bathroom overnight. I have been sitting on my exercise ball periodically, and my doula told me last weekend that doing so will help the baby engage (move down). My other pregnancy symptoms are the same as before: back pain, reflux, edema, etc.

My parents finished decorating the nursery yesterday! It is so cute. Today I will take pictures and post them soon.

Thirty-seven weeks is considered full-term - so, anytime now!
