Since we have finally reached Week 37 of my pregnancy I think it’s time for a giveaway and a guessing game!

We have created a “Baby Ingalls-Fairweather Baby Pool” survey and it’s your chance to take your best guess as to when Baby Ingalls-Fairweather will be born (date and time), what the sex of the baby will be, the length, the weight and just for fun can you guess the name?

You can answer as many as you want the only required question is your name and e-mail incase you are the winner! The survey will be open until July 7th or until the baby arrives (whichever comes first).  There is only one entry allowed per person.  The possible points earned is listed under each question on the surveyThe winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card and bragging rights of course.

{Pregnancy Update} 37 Weeks

How far along are you: 37 Weeks!

How big is the baby:

Your baby is now considered “full term,” even though your due date is three weeks away. If you go into labor now, his lungs will likely be mature enough to fully adjust to life outside the womb. (Some babies need a bit more time, though. So if you’re planning to have a repeat c-section, for example, your practitioner will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there’s a medical reason to intervene earlier.)

Your baby weighs 6 1/3 pounds and measures a bit over 19 inches, head to heel (like a stalk of Swiss chard). Many babies have a full head of hair at birth, with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. But don’t be surprised if your baby’s hair isn’t the same color as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes thrown for a loop when their children come out as blonds or redheads, and fair-haired couples have been surprised by Elvis look-alikes. And then, of course, some babies sport only peach fuzz. (source)

Baby’s Gender: We both are on the fence.

Baby’s Name: We have a name for a boy or a girl.  Choosing a boys name was easy for us and was decided upon months ago but the girls name has been a little more challenging but we finally decided on one.

Weight Gained: 28 lbs

Clothes: Mostly just wearing dresses as they are the most comfortable.

How are you feeling: I am feeling super pregnant. I have been having some strong Braxton Hicks contractions and lots of pelvis/groin pain.

What do you miss: I miss having more clothes to wear. I miss running.

Symptoms: (source)

Cravings: nachos. pasta salad. water. lemonade.

How are you sleeping: Sleeping is going alright this week, however I would say a big part of that is because I have been exhausted.  Monday I worked a 10 hour day and Tuesday a 9 hour day so I have been wiped out by 8pm and have been sleeping pretty well until 3am. Then at 3am I am ready to get up but instead I have been turning Netflix on my phone on and listen/watching Bones.

Workouts: This week I haven’t gotten in my workouts like I usually do because of my crazy work schedule but I did make it to prenatal yoga today.  I also walked a ton of laps around the hotel during our convention so I could get a little activity in and because sitting for too long was just painful.

Things I’m looking forward to: Finishing up work. Meeting our baby!!
