{Baby Schartz: 37 Weeks}

How far along?: 37 weeks 
Total weight gain?: 19 lbs.
Size of baby?: Baby Schartz is the size of a Winter Melon!
Maternity clothes?: I'm working the leggings and stretchy pants! My cousin got me the cutest parachute pants from Windsor for my birthday. They were a small so I thought there would be no way they'd fit, but I wore them to my doctor appointment Wednesday and they were super comfy. Thanks Mick! :)
Stretch Marks?: Not yet. 
Sleep?: Meh. It's basically awful, but I might as well get used to it right?
Best moment this week: There were several. It was a GOOD week. We had the option to check and see if I was dilated this week, but I opted to wait until next week when I'm closer to my due date.
Miss Anything?: I've missed the occasional adult beverage. I just want a really girly, fruity, pretty drink! Throw an umbrella in there! 
Movement?: He's still moving constantly. There is truly nothing like feeling your baby move around in your belly. I'll never forget it. The way his little feet stretch across my belly and up into my ribs. It sounds awful, but I promise it's not. Occasionally it catches me off guard and it is slightly bothersome, but I wouldn't want to miss out on his movements. 
Food cravings: Of course not. It hasn't happened this entire pregnancy. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: The acid reflux came back! Grrr. >:( 
Gender: Baby boy! 
Labor signs: Contractions. Semi-intense contractions. They are not enjoyable. 
Symptoms: Swelling, acid reflux, lightning crotch, hand and feet tingles, exhaustion, emotions...am I missing anything?! Yes, I am...the leg cramps are back and my hands seriously feel like they have arthritis. They are tight, sore and just plain painful. 
Belly button in or out?: It's exactly even with my belly. Weirdest thing ever haha! 
Wedding rings on or off?: Off!
Happy or moody most of the time?: Both? Some might feel like they're walking on eggshells around me. Don't make her mad, don't make her cry. I've definitely had some mood swings here lately. I'm so happy, but there's so much going on and I'm so tired, so you never know what you're going to get. I think I'm just ready to meet my little boy. 
Looking forward to: Seeing if I'm dilated next week, meeting our baby boy, announcing his name, seeing everyone's babies dressed up for Halloween(and possibly ours!), watching Hocus Pocus and so much more. I hope these last two weeks take their time. I really want to soak them up. Laying around snuggling my husband and loving on our dog is great. Soon enough we'll be loving on our baby. Whew! 

Kory is calling that the babe will be here by the 24th, he's pretty set on the 24th itself. My Godmother is heading to Ireland on the 21st, so she was hoping he'd be here by the 20th. She won't be back until the 28th, so she says I'm not allowed to have him between then. I wanted him to be here by the 20th as well, because I was hoping he'd be a libra, like me. Considering that the 20th is this Sunday, I'm sort of rethinking my wishes. Sunday just seems so, soon. Heck, 10 days seems soon! This pregnancy has flown by. Fastest pregnancy ever. I always thought I'd be miserable by the end of my pregnancy and one of those women begging for someone to get this child out of me. Surprisingly I'm not. I'm just anxious and curious. Time is running out!
