37 Weeks

August 16, 2012

How far along? 37 Weeks. My baby will be here in 3 weeks! Isn't that crazy? Looks like baby boy is still breech. I've been going to a chiropractor trained in the Webster Technique 3 times a week to help adjust my hips so that the baby can turn....so we'll see if that helps. If anything it feels good! I'm also swimming and doing yoga. I feel much more calm about it than I did last week.
Maternity clothes? Still a mix of both maternity and non-maternity.
Stretch marks? Nope....just 3 weeks to go until I'm in the clear!
Sleep: It's still difficult to get comfortable, but seeing the chiropractor has definitely helped with my hip and back pain. I highly recommend it to all of my pregnant friends!
Best moment this week: Relaxing over the weekend and getting ready for baby. The husband put together the swing, bouncy seat, and installed the car seat, so we are ready to go.  
Miss Anything? I miss being able to paint my toes and shave my legs without breaking a sweat!
Movement: Still lots of movement.
Food cravings: Watermelon, lemonade, and strawberries.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No. 
Gender: Baby boy
 Labor Signs: Zero. And we want it to stay that way. My c-section is scheduled for September 5th and I'd really like to make it to that day. 
Symptoms: Swelling in my hands when I get too hot...but that's about it. 
Belly Button in or out? It's flat. 
Wedding rings on or off? On...most of the time.
Mood: I'm feeling much better this week. Still hoping that baby boy turns sometime soon, but in the end we just want a healthy baby.
Looking forward to: My final baby shower this weekend and finishing up the nursery with a little help from my mom. It's so close to being done!

  17. Just wondering because I don't know and I'm curious...

    If your plan is to have a c-section, what is the point of trying to get your little man to turn? Just in case he makes his appearance before then?

  18. Isn't it an amazing feeling to know you can meet your son at anytime now and all will be well? So exciting! You look amazing!! Pregnancy has definitely suited you! xo

  19. It's getting so close! Glad the chiropractor trips are helping with the discomfort. I've heard that seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy is a must.

  20. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be sure to take it really easy on yourself these last few weeks, especially with that breech baby. I tried and tried to make myself go into labor (I was so miserable) and then found out that if I had put myself into labor we'd be in a pickle since she was breech :) Use it as an excuse to do NOTHING! Prepping for a C section? Remain calm, everyone tells you all you feel is pressure, and this is true, but it's just weird :) You look so great and so stylish to be so pregnant! I hope that baby turns for you!

  21. I am way behind in blog world and I just saw that baby R is breech. I know the feeling and I was curious about the chiropractor so I'll be interested to see how that works for you. I really did try everything else I could and I've heard the music/yoga positions work for some people and others not. Once you get it in your head that a c-section is quite possible and start preparing yourself it isn't bad. On a scale of 1-10 on labor I felt a 1 and baby boy was here SO fast! The recovery is a little rough the first few weeks but your husband and mom will be around so you will be just fine if you need to have one. All that matters is baby R is here safe and sound and heck you can even get ready and do your hair and makeup! See, lots of pluses here.

  22. I didn't know baby was breech! Gosh, come onnnn chiropractor -- help that baby turn the right way! :) If not, at least you know THE DAY that your sweet bundle will arrive. THAT part is kind of convenient ;)

  23. You're getting SO close and I'm getting SO excited for you!!:)

  24. Sounds like you are doing all you can to make the little man flip around. Hopefully he listens to his mother! Glad you feel better after the chiro adjustments. :)

  25. I didn't know baby was breech either!! Will pray he flips soon! You look so great, I can't believe baby is FULL TERM!!

  28. Full term baby! That's awesome news! No worries about baby being breech - they turn all the time. And if he doesn't, then a c-section is really not horrible. I went through 17 hours of labor and then had to have a c-section. But honestly, the recovery isn't terrible and you basically forget all about it in a few weeks. I'm only 3 months out and I'm already itching for another one! Who knew babies were addicting?!
