Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? Off, I don't think they'll be going back on until after the baby is born!

How far along?  37 weeks
Baby Size: Baby is the size of a winter melon.
Total weight gain/loss: Around 37 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yep - especially these jeans, and these.  
Stretch marks? I think I may have a few popping up :(
Sleep: Sleeping really good this week.  Thanks to my pregnancy pillow and Pepcid. 
Best moment this week: Getting my hair done (thank you Olivia!), packing our hospital bags, and picking out some hospital day gifts for Andrew and baby Ellie.       
Miss Anything? I really miss exercising and having lots of energy.
Movement: She is definitely quieter, because she is so big!  Still feel her daily hiccups. 
Food cravings: Sweeeeeeeeets.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. 
Have you started to show yet: Yep.
Gender: GIRL!
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks.  I also got checked at the OB this week - I'm 1cm and 30% effaced, so progress is starting! 
Belly Button in or out? In, barely. 
Wedding rings on or off? Off - I'm starting to swell in my hands and feet this week. 
Mood? Very excited for baby girl - but nervous for Andrew.  I think we just started a new separation anxiety phase - not good timing!  
Looking forward to: Lots of fun activities and parties this week - basically keeping busy which is what I need!


And here's a "cheese" pic from big bro Andrew, just for kicks!
