37 weeks, photos, and full term baby!

Sweet profile, eyes, nose, and cute mouth... he was practicing his sucking motions!Adorable face, one hand is covering up the chubby cheekers!
37 Week Baby William Wilson belly!Top two cravings have definitely been cereal and ice cream (Oberweis YUM!)

Happy Mommy to be at 37 weeks.

37 weeks: Baby's now the size of a watermelon!Your full-term (yay!) baby is gaining about 1/2 ounce a day and getting his first sticky poop (called meconium) ready. He's also brushing up on skills for the outside world: blinking, sucking, inhaling, exhaling, and gripping (it's getting strong!).

We are there, baby is a watermelon and cant get too much bigger these days! The whole pregnancy you read about your baby and hear about how they are a blueberry, a kiwi, or some fruit you don't know what it is but this week my friends we made it to watermelon status!
Went to the doctor today, not dilated... ohh well. She was running an hour behind so that put a damper on my plans of running up there during my lunch time. So once I had her I kept her and chatted for a while about the big day, glad we are on the same page about everything, makes me feel prepared and good. I have been right on my measurements but last week I was still at 35 cm and this week went down to 34 cm she said she wanted an ultrasound done right away, everything should be fine and could just be his position or something but wanted to check the amionic fluid etc... The ultrasound tech could squeeze me in in an hour. Down to lovely St Johns cafeteria I went, my thoughts of going back to work to continue a busy day drifting away.
The ultra sound went fine and baby, myself, and amniotic fluid are all measuring good, she said there are lots of things that could play into why I am measuring small but it is nothing to worry about. But I got to see William again, he is getting so big! I saw his sweet face, his fat little cheeks, and once I started laughing (did this to keep from getting teared up I'm sure) at his face, he put his little arm right over it and wouldn't move, he said "shows over folks!"
I cant wait to meet him for real in just 3... 4 weeks tops countdowns on!
