Preggers Update: 37 Weeks

It's week 37 and Fisher is officially considered full term!

We had an appointment on Friday where we had an ultrasound to check the little man's size and...


He was estimated to already be 6 lbs 7 ounces and in the 45 percentile. For some reason I tend to measure small via my belly checks, but Fisher is right on track. We were very happy to hear it. We are now just waiting for him to arrive which could be any day now.

I'm still not dilated so who knows when it will happen, but we currently only have 19 days left until our due date. My fingers are crossed that he won't be too much later than our due date. If he is, he will be one big baby. Big babies are super cute, but they're cuter when someone else is pushing them out. You know what I mean?

People keep commenting on the fact that Fisher's movements have probably started slowing down at this point since he is filling up all his space, but he is actually as active as ever. I'm thinking it is a sign of the personality to come. I can't wait to meet him!

Here's my week 37 belly...

I lost the ability to wear my rings a couple weeks ago and this week my feet and ankles have started to swell a bit as well. I'm afraid I might be developing cankles so this kid can't come out soon enough. No woman wants to deal with cankles. (Cankles: when the ankle and the calf seem to merge together, blending without an obvious division between the two.) On the positive side, I'm no longer suffering with my sciatic nerve pain which is AMAZING. 

Until next time...
