37 Weeks - Full TERM!!!!

                                                             37 Weeks - Full Term
 Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 37 Weeks
Size of baby: According to our ultra sound at 35 weeks Macey weighed 6lbs and 3 oz. We have another ultra sound on Thursday and I'm excited to see her weight!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 26lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yes-but lately I'v lived in big T-Shirts and PJ Pants since I'm on bed rest.
Gender: Girl!
Movement: Yes but her moves have slowed down and are harder now. She has started moving a lot at night now and early morning.
Sleep: I haven't been sleeping well at all. It makes it hard to sleep when I have to lay around all day.
Symptoms: Crazy Indigestion and it is about to kill me, my body hurts like crazy, and I go to the bathroom 8743 times a day.
What I miss: Getting comfortable and being able to have caffiene.
Cravings: Nothing this week but in the past weeks I've lived on Subway veggie subs and ginger ale!!!
Best Moment this week: The cool weather outside and hitting the full term mark!!!
What I am looking forward to: Our ultra sound on Thursday and meeting Macey hopefully soon!!!!

So I know most of you have probably read on Twitter that I'm on bed rest. My blood pressure has been up since around 28 weeks, but in the past few weeks it has been higher. My doctor took me out of work and wants me off my feet and on my side 50% of the day, trying to keep it from getting higher. They were talking about inducing me at 36 or 37 weeks, but obviously that didn't happen. Which I'm thankful for! I want Macey to come when she is ready and I didn't want to have her before 37 weeks. They are not letting me go past 39 weeks since blood pressure tends to get higher towards the end of pregnancy. We go back on Thursday and we have another ultra sound to check her growth and my fluids. Hopefully we will know something soon!!!

Here are some pictures of the past weeks!!!
Please ignore the no make up and wet hair. I've decided there is no point in getting ready every day to lay around the house!
