37 Weeks

Size of baby: Length of a stalk of Swiss Chard ( 6.3 lbs and 19 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 34 lbs, yikes. But I am not really going to worry about it for the rest of the pregnancy.
Continuing symptoms: Sore feet, frequent bathroom visits, sore hips, braxton hicks, swollen feet and hands.
New symptoms this week: Heartburn is reappearing, but isn't really that bad. 

Sleep: Now that I am not working, I sleep in a lot. Probably too much.
Maternity Clothes: Some shirts are getting a bit short
What I'm Eating: Regular diet
Cravings: Nothing specific that I can think of

Movement: Lots of belly shifting, and of course LOTS of movement at night when it is time for mom to fall asleep. I often have to switch sides because that is the only way I can fall asleep. 

Other Pregnancy News: FULL TERM! This is an awesome milestone to reach. And with this the realization that our baby could be here any day. It is still so hard to believe, and I know it won't fully sink in until baby gets here. There is no way of me being fully prepared for something so unknown.

Mat leave is pretty awesome. I have been keeping myself pretty busy, but I have also done ALOT of relaxation. I was the maid of honour in my cousins wedding this past weekend. It was a lot of fun, and we were all nervous baby Dueck would decide to come before hand and that I wouldn't be able to be there. But I am glad he or she decided to wait. That wedding was the last event I really had to look forward to, so now I pretty much just wait around for baby to come! I don't think I will be bored for at least a week or two, I have a lot of project ideas that will keep me occupied!

This picture is from my cousins wedding this weekend:

This is how swollen my feet get. Anything that puts pressure on them leaves an indent. So bizarre!!
