37 Weeks! That means she's technically Full Term!!!

How far along? 37 weeks... Oh my!
Trimester: Third! Oh my!
Days to Go: 21 days... OH MY!!!
Baby size: 19.25 inches! The length of a stalk of Swiss Chard! Oh my!
Baby weight: 6.3 pounds! (ya know, according to the app.  Could be more or less, in reality!)
Stretch marks? yup. But I'm trying to be proud of them.  I'm a Momma Tiger after all! ;-) Rawr!
Sleep: Not so much...  Waking up 2-3 times a night to pee, my hips are getting more sore when I lay on one side too long.  Scooting over to the side of the bed to get up is getting SO hard! Especially when I have to pee! lol  TMI, I know, sorry!  ;)
Best moment this week: 
Friday was an awesome day!  I took the day off work, and the Band Kids threw us a beautiful shower during 1st period!  Here are a few of the cute pics we got:

The girls who hostessed even gave us our own hashtag, b/c they know Luke loves Twitter!  ;-)

So pretty!  They did a great job!

Just one of our sweet sweet gifts, a handmade blanket from the Eichlers, complete with Tenley's initials!!!  I love it!
 After the shower was over, I went and got a manicure and a pedicure, which was FABULOUS!  I even got Tenley's monogram on my toes! ;-)   Then I went home and took a nap, had a visit with a sweet friend, and then I went to get my hair curled, and my makeup done, and after a rain-scare, we went off to have our Maternity Pics taken by the amazing Hannah Vickers! We had a blast, and I think the pics are going to turn out wonderfully!!! She sent me this as a sneak peek:   :-)  We should have the rest in a few weeks! Can't wait to see them!

Miss anything? being able to lay on my tummy!    Caring about what my house looks like??? lol
Movement: Lots of movement!  Last night, she had such a big stretch!  It didn't hurt, but it was amazing to see!  Ten-Ten is getting so crowded in there!
Food cravings: Really just snow cones and lots of water!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: only brushing my teeth.  Don't know what the deal is with that, but I'm ready for it to quit!!!
Labor Signs:  I do think I'm having some Braxton Hicks.  They hurt, kindof a lot, so that's making me a little anxious about actually going in to labor...  But I'm praying it'll be a relatively short labor (though long enough for everyone to GET here!)
Belly Button in or out?  Still in!  Dont think it's going to poke out!  I'm OK with that for sure!!!
Wedding rings on or off? off.  My extra big ring fits now with no bandaid-sizer too.  None of my bracelets will fit over my wrist and none of my shoes can go on my feet except the ones a whole size larger than normal.  I sure hope everything goes back to normal size soon after she comes!!!   I will CRY if my feet have permanently grown!!!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy?  Definitely more prone to random tears though! lol
Weekly Wisdom: Ummmmm I don't have any wisdom for y'all this week.
Current Reads: "50 Shades of Grey" ..... no, not a baby book, but a really good read!
Looking forward to:  My last week of work this week, my prenatal massage on Saturday and Mama Sue and Caitlin arriving on Sunday!!! Whoohooo!
On the "Honey Do" list:  Just need to hang some shelves in Tenley's closet!  No big deal.  We need to get a tarp to cover the floor in our room, and honestly.... I think we're ready.  wow!!!
