Week 37

the baloney bug

Full term, baby, FULL TERM.  That officially means that this little lady is welcome to come whenever she’d like.  While I want her to continue to bake until the full 40 weeks, part of me would love to have her here right this minute.

This week sleeping and breathing got exponentially harder.  Sometimes I’ll be standing there doing nothing and find myself trying to catch my breath.  And climbing those two flights of stairs to the apartment or up to the subway at rush hour have just become total highlights of my day.

As for sleep, you’re supposed to sleep on your left side so that the baby gets the best blood flow, which of course can get old after a while.  What I wouldn’t give to sleep on my stomach (ha, that’s obviously not happening) or even my back.  But I’m a rule follower so left side it is.  I wake up in the middle of the night feeling so sore and stiff and totally convinced I’m going to start getting bed sores.

Then before bed one night Jon’s all, “You know, you’ve been snoring a lot recently.”

OH, I’M SO SORRY.  This whole pregnancy thing must be really hard on you.

And then he told me I was beautiful.  Even when I snore.

    3 wheels to go and we get to see if Baby Girl is a red head or not! Can hardly WAIT!!!!!

  2. Ahhh so exciting! Baby Bean we can’t wait to meet you!
    P.S. Good save Jon.

  3. LOL @ Jon.
    Hang in there. It will be 100% worth it!

  4. You’re looking good, Joan! And Jon is sweet – Bill would pinch my nose shut in the middle of the night then I’d wake up annoyed and unable to breathe.

    my first time on your blog!
    I just had to comment on your H telling you about snoring because mine also commented that I snored a lot when I was around 34 weeks along. I was embarrassed because he said right in front of my OB, of all the times he could have told me! LOL I was only embarrassed for a split second though.
    Hang in there! You look good.
    I had my baby at 37 weeks and 1 day! Best wishes!
