37 weeks 1 day!

How far along: 37 weeks 1 day. FULL TERM BABY
Size of Baby: watermelon, 19-22 inches and around 6.5 lbs. 
Total Weight Gain: 28 lbs. I don't think I've gained any in the last two weeks. 
Maternity Clothes: maxi dresses, long skirts, capris, yoga pant capris- none of those maternity but shirts are getting super hard to fit.
Gender: Girl. Last night I had my first dream about her! She  was here and  had super  long hair!       
Movement: She's still pretty active! Shes the most active at night when I try to go to sleep- hoping this doesn't mean she's going to be a night owl! 
Sleep: I attempt to sleep- completely sitting up because every night I have this ridiculous congestion. Like I can't even swallow! It's only at night and I pray that it stops as SOON as she gets here! I can nap decently during the day though so I'm extremely grateful Jasper still takes about a 2 hr nap because if I didn't have that hour and a half nap a day I don't know how I would make it through the day.
What I miss: Everything fitting. Being able to see my vajajay.
Cravings: Cheese/butter sandwiches and popsicles! Oh and SUPER hot chips and salsa! And I'm not usually a fan of hot food. 
Symptoms:PELVIC PAIN. Ouch.
What I’m looking forward to:Baby girl coming!! I'm seriously just ready to hold my daughter. Oh and I'm also looking forward to our brand new (to us!) car arriving tonight! We bought a 2010 Chevrolet HRR in Iowa, and my brother is currently driving it out here to us! I'm most excited about this car having an automatic car starter- woohooo! No more freezing in the car as we wait for it to warm up! Or boiling in the summer waiting for the air to cool us down. Yep pretty excited :)

Tomorrow I have my OB appointment and hopefully I'll find out we have made some PROGRESS! Last week at 36 I was 2CM dilated!! That's a huge deal for me because it took 42 weeks and ten hrs of induced labor before I was at a 2 last time around!!
