Week 37 Pregnancy
At 37 weeks pregnant, you are considered full term. Baby is fully developed and ready to make his or her debut into the world!
The final weeks of pregnancy can be a time of anticipation and excitement. You may be feeling more impatient to meet your little one, and are probably eagerly counting down the days until your due date.
There are some things you can do in the meantime to help make the arrival of your baby a little smoother. Make sure you have everything ready in the nursery, and stock up on essentials like diapers and wipes.
You should also continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet. Keep in mind that you may experience some common late-pregnancy symptoms, like lower back pain and swelling in your feet and ankles.
If you have any concerns, be sure to talk to your doctor. He or she can give you advice on how to prepare for labor and delivery, and will be there to help you through the entire process.
18 Week Pregnancy
You’re now 18 weeks pregnant! This week, your baby measures about six inches long and weighs about nine ounces. The baby’s head is still relatively large in proportion to the body, but the body is growing faster now. The baby’s eyes can open and close and the ears are moving up on the head. The baby is swallowing and sucking and the intestines are moving through the umbilical cord into the baby’s abdomen.
Your baby’s skin is still thin and translucent, but it will get thicker and less transparent in the weeks ahead. The baby’s hair is starting to grow, and the baby’s fingernails and toenails are fully formed. The baby’s brain is growing rapidly and the baby is starting to dream.
You may be feeling more energetic now as your body adjusts to the changes of pregnancy. You may also be feeling more emotional, as your hormones continue to fluctuate. Be sure to get plenty of rest and eat a healthy diet.
You’re probably starting to think about what you’d like to name your baby. You may also be thinking about what you’ll need for the baby’s arrival. Start making a list and set a budget. You may also want to start thinking about childcare and whether you’ll need to take time off from work after the baby is born.
The next few weeks are an important time for your baby’s development. Be sure to take care of yourself and enjoy this special time in your life.

Week 31 Pregnancy
Hello friends and family!
It’s been a little over a month since I announced my pregnancy and things have been going great! I’m now in my 31st week and feeling great!
My energy is still high and I’m still working out 3-4 times a week. I’ve been continuing to eat a healthy diet, with plenty of fruits and vegetables, and I’ve been avoiding any foods that are known to be harmful to pregnant women.
My baby is now about the size of a honeydew melon and is starting to prepare for birth. His or her lungs are starting to develop and the baby is starting to store nutrients in preparation for life outside the womb.
My due date is still about 4 weeks away, but I’m already starting to think about what I’ll need to do once the baby arrives. I’ve been reading up on post-birth care and I’m starting to put together a list of things I’ll need for the baby’s room.
Overall, I’m feeling great and excited about the arrival of my little one! Thank you for all your support!
Week 18 Pregnancy
I’m officially in my 18th week of pregnancy and feeling great!
This week has been pretty exciting, as I’ve finally started to show a little bit! I’ve been getting a lot of comments and questions about how far along I am and what I’m having.
So far, I’m still keeping the gender a secret, but I will say that it’s been really fun picking out baby clothes and decorating the nursery.
My energy levels have been really good this week, and I’ve been able to continue working out and running. I’m really looking forward to the next few months and seeing how my belly continues to grow.
