37 weeks pregnant

It’s funny, there are a lot of similarities to my first pregnancy. I weighed exactly the same and without reading my last pregnancy’s post from 37 weeks, I wrote the exact same thing about getting up from the couch. First pregnancy post. I also started with prenatal acupuncture on wednesday.

How far along: 37 weeks 4 days
How much do I weigh: 60,5 kg (+ 10,8 kg)
Baby size: Around 3kg maybe? Baby’s head is tight in my pelvis, cervix is closed (one fingertip fits) and the neck of the uterus is quite short (1-2cm?), even had one contraction while I was at the Gyn.
Belly size: The circumference (2cm under the belly button) is 103 cm and from top to bottom itโ€™s 42 cm

Belly button in or out: even/out
Sleep: Soso, sometimes I wake up at 3am and cannot go back to sleep, sometimes I wake up, go to the bathroom and fall asleep right away
Food (non) cravings: nothing really, I think my uterus is way on the top so not that much fits at the moment. I do need some sweets in the evenings though
Symptoms: Out of breath fast, not able to eat so much, big belly is getting uncomfortable, Baby has a lot of hiccups
Maternity clothes: Now my pants are getting too tight. I guess I need to wear leggings only soon (hope it gets warmer, it’s snowing here again)
Stretch marks: None yet
Linea negra: above the belly button
Miss anything: being able to get up from the couch like a 30-year old :), I miss being able to eat whatever I want, let’s hope this baby is not that sensitive to what I eat while breastfeeding

Best happenings this week: going out with my girls at night for dinner, spending a lovely night at a hotel in Munich with my mom, going out to eat and going shopping the next day. My first night away from my “baby”-boy, I woke up four times that night but went to sleep right away and just enjoyed two days with my mom
Movement: Lots, mainly the baby is quite active three times a day and as much I really like that baby is moving so much and that all seems fine it really is uncomfortable
Gender: Boy? Girl?
Happy or moody most of the time: I’m not moody, I’m just really looking forward to meeting our baby
Sports: Still lifting weights twice a week. Next week will be my last week, from April 1st on I’ll pause at the gym. No backache – yay!
