Baby Yancey - 37 Week Bumpdate

Wow... I cannot believe that I am at 37 weeks (officially 38 weeks as of today!)  I wanted to wait until after my appointment on Wednesday to post this bumpdate but, got pretty bummed out when I was told that there was no progression at all.  I know He needs to stay put a little longer & I am just now 38 weeks but, I was sure hoping for just a little progression.  Guess this gives me a little more time to finish up all of my last minute things (& baby boy to develop more!).... the silver lining!

Shirt - Ross

How far along:  37 Weeks!!!

Baby Size:  Big... and losing room!  On Wednesday's appointment the Dr estimated that he's already between 6 1/2 - 7lbs.  Lord help me!

Weight Gain:  The last several updates I've been unsure but, I reluctantly confirmed at my appointment on Wednesday that I've gained a total of 40 lbs so far.  UGH!  Talk about gut wrenching to see that number but, I know I'm almost done with this pregnancy and it's all for a good cause!

Maternity Clothes:  Of course!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  No new stretch marks but, still battling the swelling in my feet & hands.  I even stayed home last Thursday & Friday to keep my feet propped up... drinking a lot of water & staying away from the sodium!

Sleep:  Eh... Some nights I sleep great & other nights are not so great.  Sometimes I wake up with little man in my ribs & pushing on my right side really hard.  Fun stuff!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Breakfast has been a go-to meal for me lately, I just can't get enough!  And funny enough there's been some things lately that I walk into a room, smell food & want to hurl!  So strange!

Gender:  Boy!  Jack Montgomery!

Movement:  Yes, baby boy still moves quite a bit!

Symptoms:  Still have the back aches, those just aren't going away especially now!  HAHA!  Feet & hands swelling & carpal tunnel in my right hand - not fun!

Labor Signs:  Definitely having Braxton Hicks but, nothing consistent yet.  And as of Wednesday's doctor appointment I still have not made any progress dilating.  Womp. Womp...

Belly button in or out:  Flat

Wedding rings on or off:  Off... I can't wait to be able to wear them again!

Mood:  Wednesday I was pretty bummed about not progressing any but, overall I feel happy.  Certainly anxious... probably the most anxious I've ever felt in my life!

Nursery:  It is done!  I can't wait to share with y'all next week!

What I miss:  Mainly just my feet not swelling & my hands hurting - I would be great if not for those two!

Best moment this week:  Hearing Jack's heart beat - it never gets old!  Finishing the nursery & getting all of our "preparations" in order.

What I'm looking forward to:  I know He should stay put a little bit longer (& probably will) but, I'm just really looking forward to meeting our little guy.  I absolutely cannot wait!!!

Other Notables:
+ Pregnancy insomnia is no joke... Updating this at 3:15am & I've been awake since 2:30. #tgif

+ Long gone are the days of me being cold natured (& they have been for a while) but, when it's 35* out & you think it feels good... You know your baking a baby!  I've even been freezing Matt out a bit, ha!


  1. Hope you can get more sleep, lady!!!! WOW, 37 weeks!

  2. You are so, so close! And looking fabulous at 37 weeks. My doctor told me that Mason was going to be on the bigger side of 8-9 pounds. And then when I was in labor the on call doctor told me he estimated Mason to be 9 lbs...but he was a small 7 lbs 2 ounces! Whew!!!!!
