Mommy Monday {37 weeks}

Well, here we have arrived in baby girl's birth month {although there is a small chance of a June birthday, which I would love, having a June birthday myself}. I still can't believe how fast time is flying by! Only 3 weeks left until her Due Date!

How far along? 37 weeks!
Total weight gain: I have not weighed myself since last week. I'm going to say 30 lbs because I don't go to the doctor until tomorrow. 
Maternity clothes: Dresses, dresses, and more dresses! AND my bra debacle has been solved! I had NO idea that they make bra extender's {apparently I live in a cave}, but one of my co-workers told me about them. I went and bought some this weekend and problem solved! Phew!
Stretch marks: Still have the silly butt stretch marks. I'm still using my Honest Co. Organic Belly Balm and Nivea Q10 Plus Skin Firming Lotion every day to try and avoid them everywhere else! I'm going to be purchasing some Stretch Mark Cream  from my friend who sells It Works so I will let you all know how that goes when I get it! 
Workouts: Prenatal Yoga and Walks. It seems I have a bit more energy {I didn't take a nap today, woohoo!}. 
Sleep: Saturday night I think I got up to use the bathroom 5 or 6 times. I'm still using my Boppy Pregnancy Wedge and I think I accidentally have hit my husband and dog in the face a couple times when I'm switching sides. Oops. 
Best moment this week: Graduating from the Leadership Institute that I was in this last semester! It was an amazing experience.    
Miss anything? I'm back to eating peanut butter {of the natural version} and I have not had any heartburn. Other than that, I really am having a pretty good go of it right now! 
Movement: She is quite the squirm worm! Moving around mostly at night when I can finally relax on the couch. 
Food cravings: I have noticed that I'm starting to crave some healthier options lately. I went to Trader Joe's and bought a whole bunch of fruit and yogurt. Yum. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not lately. 
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: I'm still only have a Braxton Hicks contraction here and there, but nothing consistent. 
Belly button in or out? Still in and sneaking it's way out. I'm still not convinced it's gonna pop out before she comes!
Wedding rings on or off? Wedding band only as it's supposed to hit triple digits on Wednesday. I hate AZ summers. Ugh. 
Happy or moody most of the time: So irritable for the last week or so! I'm hoping this is not a holding trend. 
Baby Arrival Guesstimate: Still hoping for May 28th or later. Last day of my contract at work is May 27. 
Looking forward to: My friend's wedding on Saturday! 

Until next time!
