Pregnancy: 37 Weeks


Well I can't quite believe 37 weeks pregnant is finally here! I'm now considered full term which is a scary thought but still have 3 weeks of growing left to do hopefully. The baby's gut now contains meconium, which is the first sticky yucky poo that a baby will pass when born. Sometimes it can happen during labour when the baby is stressed. I'm sure Logan did this during my labour with him. I've got my fingers crossed I'll still be getting my planned c-section though so hoping for a no repeat this time round.

A lot of websites are saying the baby should weigh just over 6lbs now but like I've said before I'll be surprised if this baby weighs any less than 8lbs. I'm quite excited to find out the weight and also the sex of the baby of course as the other half and I have no clue. As long as the baby is healthy we're completely happy with either gender. Logan can't quite decide still if he'd like a brother or a sister which is cute. He keeps asking when he'll get his sister then two seconds later it'll be "me and my brother..." very sweet.

As for me this week still feeling a bit tired and having the odd nap when I can which is nice. I don't feel like I'm quite waddling as much as I did when I was pregnant with Logan but I'm definitely struggling to get up off the sofa, put my winter boots on and drive the smaller car as it's lower. Just means I get to take the nice big car when I have to go out which is lovely and more comfortable. I'll need to enjoy the freedom whilst I can I suppose as with a c-section I won't be driving for up to 6 weeks after the birth!

It's been a busy old week again but quite productive apart from the other half and Logan catching the sickness bug!! I'm praying I don't catch it myself what with being heavily pregnant and also so close to Christmas now. Can't help it though especially at this time of year with all the bugs flying around at school.

Anyway roll on next week and Christmas!
