37 Weeks! BIG WITH BABY!

I am now considered full-term and boy do I look and feel it! 

My Dr. is out of town till the 7th and so this week I went to someone else in the same office. I was excited to see if I've dilated at all, but he didn't check. I am now 187lbs which is 1lb over on where I want to be, but that's okay. He did tell me that as far as belly measurement I’m still right on 37 weeks 37 inches. They measure from your pelvic bone to just under your chest. He said I am having a hard time telling because her head is right on your pelvis and her legs and bum are up in your ribs. He said she hasn't dropped yet, but she is defiantly head down. 
Dang it, I thought she had dropped, but no not yet. I have been walking funny because it hurts to walk normal. It’s more of a waddle now and Mike thinks it's pretty funny and I’m glad I can laugh with him. It actually hurts pretty bad when I walk though :(

I'm having a really hard time sleeping I wake up a few times every night and go get a drink and use the bathroom. 
I am defiantly forgetful! I have to put everything in my phone calendar.
My belly button looks so strange. Mike thinks it is going to start poking out any day now. My belly also itches a lot. I know that if itch it, it will cause stretch marks and I already have some so there won't be any itching. 
On a good note my ribs aren't hurting like they use to! That makes me wonder if she's dropped a little. I also don't have as much heart burn or acid reflux. It happens every now and then, but it’s not an every night thing anymore.

Oh Nikki you are almost there! Congratulations! I can only think that we get so miserable at the end of pregnancy to be willing to endure the labor! If the end of pregnancy was a breeze we wouldn't be so willing to go through the pain!
