37 Weeks (Now its 2 weeks left!)

2 weeks...not 3 anymore. Since we couldn't flip him, I have a C-Section scheduled for my 39th week.
Hopefully he will turn all by himself before that, but I highly doubt it. And even if he does, they are still going to induce me so he doesn't have time to turn back around. No matter what, ill be holding my son in 2 weeks. I can't wait to meet him and show him off to everyone!

How far along? 37 Weeks
Weight gained this week: 2 ( Total 30 ) Im not sure if my scale is off, but my doctor has said I have only gained 25lbs.
Maternity clothes?  Still 50/50
Stretch Marks? Yes, but only on my hips. Lets hope it stays that way.
Sleep? Some nights are good but others are horrible. It doesnt help that I'm starting to get sick and have very bad head aches at night.
Miss Anything? Being able to get off my butt with no problem, bending over, decent size boobs, not feeling sick all of the time... and the list could keep going.
Movement? Yes but not like most babies. He is very gentle and every once in awhile ill get a big kick.
Food Cravings? Nothing extreme but I do still love chocolate milk and cereal.
Anything Making You Queasy or sick? Anything stinky.
Gender? Baby BOY.
Labor Signs? Braxton Hicks, and mine suck!
Symptoms? Very bad back pains and lower abdomen pains. They have me going to physical therapy for it.
Belly Button In Or Out? Still in. woohoo!
Wedding Ring On Or Off? Off :(
Happy Or Moody Most Of The Time? Mostly happy, but I am very emotional now.
Looking Forward To? Jaxon's arrival! 2 more weeks. C-Section scheduled for my 
39th Week.

This Week: (
Yay! Baby has reached full term. 
He likely measures around 18.9 to 20.9 inches and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds.
 He's gaining about 1/2 ounce each day.
He's practicing some skills: inhaling, exhaling, sucking, gripping and blinking.
He's getting his first sticky poop (called meconium) ready for his first diaper.

Yes, This is the position he is currently in. :(

Even though it might be a month before I use them, 
I still wanted to have all my cloth diapers ready.

Travel diaper wipe case I made. Im addicted and I want to make more!

I got bored while being on maternity leave... so I made a bracelet. 
I have to get all my crafty ideas done now before I don't have any time at all.


  1. I am in love with your little bracelet! Oh my. The button and J - perfect touches! :) I wish I was crafty enough and had enough patience to sit and do bracelets, I am better at other crafts... :(

    I hate to hear about Jax not turning himself around. I am freaking out thinking about labor and if I will be induced or not. Classes started this week and 2 of my finals are on the day our Jaxon is due. Go figure. It's my last Fall semester though, so hopefully they will work with me.

    I love the graphic showing the baby position in your tummy, adorable!


  2. Love your crafts too! I hope he turns around, at least no matter what you will have your baby soon! xxx

  3. Just wanted to let you know since I do not have a reply option on my page - but I am planning on getting the Stork Stack for at least two more months (Oct & Nov). I am hoping that if I continue to like the box I will go ahead and subscribe for December (his birth month) and even months to come after that... Totally worth it and I definitely approve! ;)

  4. BTW, I posted before and I am not sure exactly what happened - but I LOVEEEEE the J bracelet you made. <3

  5. What did you use to make the travel wipe case? I have been searching for a cute one and can't find it.

    1. Babies R us sells the plastic case for cheap and then I just picked out fabric and ribbon I liked. I don't know the name of the felt like stuff I laid down before the fabric. I used hot glue to get it all to stick. There is a how-to on Pinterest.
