Week 37
Weight +28 Pounds 
Waist +14 Inches 
Cravings: A constant cool breeze
Dislikes: The heat
 
This week was the first week of being full term. It was exhilarating knowing the baby and I made it to being full term. I didn't have any real signs of labor, I kept feeling the same way I was feeling and then I got to welcome my mom and grandma into San Diego which was wonderful. It is so nice to have them here, they are ready to see Antonella though, I am of no interest to them except for the fact that I am carrying this baby. 

We went to the doctor and as usual she said everything is in order. Baby still head down, baby still doing well. They gave us a list of pediatricians to look into as Miss A will need a pediatrician before she leaves the hospital once she is born. These are big people decisions people! I don't know how to choose a pediatrician, Caleb and I have started our research though. 

I also started taking Evening Primrose Oil pills and have continued taking Red Raspberry Tea leaf in pill form as well. I am hoping both help the uterus get ready to bring this baby to this side. 

My midwife doesn't check my cervix unless I ask her to, and I honestly don't want her to so we haven't had a cervix check, I have no idea if I am effaced or dilated, but that's better, that way I don't have someone checking me weekly, which is uncomfortable, but also I have no clue if I am progressing so there is less room for anxiety.
 
This is definitely way too much information but I figured I will want to know later on when I am pregnant again, so here goes: Caleb has started doing perineal massages, they are a bit awkward, definitely a new level of intimacy with my husband haha, but hey if they help avoid tearing I am all for awkward massages.

Here we go onto week 38, the last few weeks of my pregnancy ahhhhh

Semana 37
Peso +28 libras
Cintura +14 pulgadas
Antojos: Un brisa constante
No me gusta:El calor

Esta semana que paso fue la primera semana de estar en termino completo. Fue emocionante saber que el bebe y yo llegamos juntas a termino. No he tenido ninguna señal de que mi cuerpo se esta alistando para dar a luz, sigo sintiendome igual. Esta semana llegaron mi mama y mi abuelita a San Diego, ha sido increible tenerlas aca. Ellas ambas estan listas para ver a Antonella, yo no les intereso de a mucho excepto porque estoy cargando a la nieta jaja.
 
La cita al doctor esta semana fue normal, como es usual nos dijo que todo estaba en orden. La bebe sigue cabeza hacia abajo, y sigue bien. Nos dieron una lista de pediatras para escoger uno porque tenemos que tener un pediatra antes de irnos del hospital una vez nazca Antonella. Estas decisiones son decisiones de adultos!! Yo no se como escoger un pediatra, Caleb y yo estamos haciendo la tarea de todas formas y estamos investigando.

Tambien empece a tomar unas pastillas que se llaman Evening Primrose Oil y continuo tomandome las pastillas de Red Raspberry Leaf. Se supone que ayudan al cuello del utero y al utero a alistarse para la hora del parto, son naturales y no afectan mi sistema nervioso ni nada asi que vamos a ver.

Mi partera no revisa el cervix (cuello del utero) a menos que yo le pida que lo revise, pero la verdad prefiero que no me este revisando tan seguido entonces no me ha revisado. No se si he dilatado o si Antonella se ha bajado. No saber da menos campo para sentir ansiedad, cuando este lista yo se que mi cuerpo me avisa, y eso dice la partera tambien, yo voy a saber.

Lo siguiente es un poco informacion extra que tal vez no deberia compartir, pero me imagino que querre saber con el siguiente bebe asi que aqui va: Caleb empezo a ayudarme con masajes del perineo. Son un poco incomodos y nuestra relacion llego a un nuevo nivel jaja, pero si me ayudan a evitar que me rasgue o la necesidad de una episiotomia nos toca aguantarnos los masajes incomodos.

Aqui vamos hacia la semana 38, una de las ultimas semana de mi embarazo!!
