37 Weeks! We're FULL TERM!!!

We've finally made it to 37 weeks!  We're now considered full term, even though we're 3 weeks from my due date.  Baby Girl is continuing to put on weight (which you can see from the increase in my bump size!).  The major development for me this week is the nesting instinct that has started to set in.  It's intense!  I feel an incredible need to be continuously organizing things- not necessarily cleaning, but definitely organizing (for example: refolding and reorganizing every piece of clothing in my dresser).  I'm still having frequent contractions that increase in intensity and frequency when I'm more active, but each contraction is no longer scary as it once was.  I've been told that I'll know when I'm in labor, so for now, I'm just going about my day.   

This weekend, we put together our stroller, 

added the car seat adapter so we can put our car seat straight into the stroller,

assembled the rocking seat,

 installed the car seat base in the car, and cleaned out the closet in the second bedroom/soon to be nursery (which inspired a cleaning out of the front hall closet as well).  Mom and Dad brought us the family cradle, so that is now in our bedroom, ready for Baby Girl.

I also organized the temporary dresser-top changing area in the bedroom (which will move to the nursery when our guest bedroom makes that transition).   

We got a lot done this weekend!  


  1. Yay for 37 weeks! You look great. We're super excited for you guys, and can't wait to see pics of the little girl when she arrives! Lots of love to the three of you!

  2. Any day now! Ii had to laugh about your nesting instincts - I had that too. I reorganized Frazier's cloths and had about 7 different "categories" for 0-3 months and then 7 categories for 3-6 months and the same for 6+ months. He is now 3 .3 months old and we are into the 6+ month section! I think nature makes you obsessively organized bc once the baby comes you just need to know where everything is!

  3. I should have spell-checked before posting. See? The organization thing just flies out the window.


I love your comments!
