37 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How far along: I'm 37 weeks & 3 days today.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 34
Maternity Clothes: I had a little meltdown Sunday before church because NOTHING fits! :(
Best Moment this Week: I was 2cm dilated and 30% effaced when I got checked last Thursday. I can't wait to find out how much that has changed at my appointment this week!
Gender: little man--Miller Harris Griffin
Movement: I feel everything!
Food Cravings: Mocha frappes, pasta, cutie oranges
Food aversions: I was stuffing Easter eggs and work today and the smell of snickers made my want to gag.
What I Miss: My pre-baby body. I tried on my XS running shorts this week and they were skin tight! It was depressing. I'm so ready to be able to start working off this baby weight!
Sleep: Good. I only wake up to use the bathroom, but usually go right back to sleep.
What I am looking forward to: Miller's arrival! He is considered FULL term now! We are SO close!

FULL TERM! Oh my goodness! I cannot believe it. It seems so surreal that he is finally 'cooked' :)
Hope he comes soon, I can't wait to hear when he's born!
Oh and I am right there with you in working off the baby weight already. I am so ready to be done with wearing maternity clothes!

I miss my pre-preggo body too! It's depressing seeing all of these new spring clothes in stores knowing you can't wear them :( But good thing for you, you don't have but a few more weeks to go!

Any day now!:) So exciting! You are still absolutely precious, but I totally understand being upset and frustrated about nothing fitting and wanting the pre-baby body back. I am missing my pre-baby body too, and can't wait to get it back. Thinking about you and praying for you as Miller's arrival gets closer and closer!:)

You look AWESOME Valerie :) So excited to see baby Miller. Praying that God continues to bless your pregnancy and delivery. From what I see on your blog, you are such a motivated and determined person. You WILL get back to your killer body, I just know it! I have a suggestion for a post baby workout. Have your heard of Turbo Fire? IT is from BeachBody and it is a 90 day in home workout program that consists of cardio kickboxing and HITT workouts. IT WORKS! Definitely look into it :)

Love your weekly updates about this journey for yourself & for Miller! Praying for you guys. And you will get back into your clothes, just don't expect it to happen on it's own OR overnight. But it WILL happen!
