37 weeks tomorrow

My doctor continues to be "impressed" with the contractions I have.  NSTs are weekly now.  I'm 2cm, so not much change.  I do think she dropped lower as I feel more pressure, but at the same time, I don't think anything is imminent.  Unlike the doctor who has been saying for weeks that it could be any time now.  I'm 37 weeks (full term) tomorrow.  Saturday would be a good day I think.  I don't really want to have to go back to school Monday.

I weighed myself this morning...I started out 2 lbs heavier, and am about 3 lbs lighter than I was a 37 weeks last time.  And I don't work out AT ALL any more or eat particularly well.  Total weight gain has been about 15 lbs (148 to 163).  Baby was measuring in 65th% at 35 weeks (6lbs 1 oz if you trust those things) so it's not like she is small.  Maybe I'll get luck y and won't gain 10lbs while nursing this time.

What is it about the nursing!? Makes you crazy hungry. I remember how starving I was that eating basically a whole chicken seemed like a reasonable dinner. Good luck! Hope you don't have to go to school on Monday!
