37 weeks and triage visit

How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain: more than I was pre pregnancy but less than I was with xelly.
Maternity clothes? duh. But I prefer sweats and Jacobs t-shirts

Stretch marks? none. 
Sleep: yes, I hate sleeping on my side.
Best moment this week: Getting to listen to his heart beat for 4 hours while in triage
Miss Anything? laying on my stomach and letting xelly play on me
Movement: lstill movement but he seems to be running out of room because it mostly feels like he is trying to stretch 
Food cravings: roasted red pepper salad and California turkey sandwich from Zupas
Anything making you queasy or sick: raw meat
Gender: boy 
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Pregnant 
Belly Button in or out: flat. 
Wedding ring  on or off? Real ring off, fake pregnancy swollen hands ring on
nappy or Moody most of the time: Happy 
Looking forward to: baby! Tomorrow- I get to eat my Zupas meal! Yum!! 

I tore a ligament in my left leg while getting onto the bouncy mat

of a mechanical bull to grab xelly before getting steped on more by bigger kids. Bad move- 3 days later I started throwing up a few times from the sharp pain when i moved wrong I called my doctor and she told me to go to L&D. 4 hours and 2 bags  of IV stuff later i left with pain meds and news to not move or lift anything for 2 days. 
Bed rest was torture I got to tired of tv I was going to go crazy. I have thee most amazing neighbors who watched Xelly and brought me dinner (Jacob was out of town) huge thank you for helping out!!
Now My leg feels really good when I just walk around as long as i don't lift anything heavy but if I move "fast" or twist a strange way then I can feel the pain shoot in my leg. The only way it will fully heal is to have this baby so the tons of extra weight can be removed from that area.
Now that Jacobs back I'm going to try out the pain meds to see if I can sleep better and tomorrow I find out if things are looking better. Crossing fingers!

Awww, you look great! Such an adorable baby bump. I'm 23 weeks with our second baby boy and I am as big as you are. Uh oh! Haha!


UGH!! I am so sorry you've been laid up all because of that DARN BULL! You and Andy should have done bed rest together!!
I hope the pain meds help you get some rest now that Jacobs home!
Let me know if you need anything.
