36 and 37 Weeks – Nursery Photos

Nicole: I just want to be pregnant…

Jeff: You don’t want to have the baby?

Nicole: No, I don’t want to go to work.

I have 8 days left of work and I am counting down. Maybe because I can’t count down days until baby comes. Jeff thinks he is going to come early, I think he’ll be late. I also don’t want to be disappointed, so trying to keep my expectations low. I am looking forward to just enjoying being pregnant.  I’ve got nesting to do!

37 Weeks

37 Weeks, Day 4

My Baby is as big as a:  

  • (36) Large Cantaloupe (19-22 in, 6 lbs)
  • (37) Watermelon (19-22 in, 6.5 lbs)

Due Date: April 23

Gender: Boy!

Weight Gained: 12-15 pounds.


  • I always feel like I have to pee.
  • Jackson Triggs/Braxton Hicks. Jeff can never remember what their called. One time he just asked if I was having a Jackson Triggs. It stuck.
  • Heart burn. Less this week, although I may just be quicker to pop a Zantax.
  • Cramps
  • Hip and pelvic discomfort
  • Back pain, when sitting or standing or lying down for too long.

Food Cravings: Nothing crazy. I eat more fruit now than I did a year ago. We used to only buy apples and bananas, now I get whatever is on sale and make a fruit salad to keep in the fridge. This week is was cantaloupe, strawberries, raspberries and grapes!

Food Aversions: I turned down duck and beef check tacos last weekend…

Sleep: Six hours of straight sleep feels like a miracle. I guess my 8-10 hours a night are now a distant memory.

Miss Anything?

  • Running
  • My flat stomach
  • Sitting comfortably
  • Sleeping through the night
  • Not having to refresh the toilet paper roll daily.

Looking forward to: Being done work!

Belly Button in or out? Out

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! I am also writing this post on my Birthday. Day off work and feelin’ the love!

New Baby Items: Our friends that recommended the UPPAbaby stroller have a little boy who very conveniently just grew out of his car seat with stroller adapter.

I am a little nervous about Jeff testing all these baby products out on Rosie. I can’t imagine she is going to be too thrilled when she sees her little brother in her car seat.


Maternity Clothes: My Zulily package finally arrived.  The tights are weird (I am also used to/spoiled by my beloved Lulu’s).  The shirts, although the same fabric are totally different. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
