37 Weeks: Full-Term and Ready To Go!

At 37-weeks pregnant, I'm official "full-term" this week...crazy!

At my doctor's appointment last week, she estimated that Ava was already at 7.5 pounds! So, the doc is hoping (as am I) that she makes an early arrival...otherwise she could be somewhere around 9.5 pounds on the due date. And seeing as how I weighed 5 pounds and Josh weighed 10 when he was born, I think we all know who will be to blame for that.

Not only do I feel huge at the moment, but I've definitely reached the uncomfortable stage of pregnancy. It is almost impossible to get a good night's sleep...but I guess it is preparing me for life after Ava arrives :).

And although you are never really ready for a new baby, I feel a lot more prepared after last weekend. Not only did I finally get my hospital bag packed, but Josh also installed the car seat.

Can you tell how happy he was to be done :).

Josh also got his "It's a Girl" cigars in the he is ready for the hospital as well :).

I can't tell you how excited I am to meet this little lady. I hope she is here soon!!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. That pretty much sums it up.
