Bump Update: 37 Weeks!

How far along? 37 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +20 about? The doctor was happy I had gained since 2 weeks ago.
Maternity clothes? Yes.
Stretch marks? No...fingers crossed!
Sleep: Knock on wood, but it was actually pretty decent most of the week. The acid reflux that had been horrible has eased off a bit, which was the main pain in the butt while I was trying to sleep. I have been more and more tired the last couple of weeks, so sleep is welcome.
Best moment this week: With the exception of filling in some frames in the nursery: I would call it done! Also got my bag and the baby's bag packed, which feels good.
Miss Anything? Miss my clothes, especially since winter is dragging on and I am oh-so-tired of wearing the same pants all the time. Keeping it real, I'm getting excited about being able to have a glass of vino soon ;) It's been a long 9 months!
Movement: Yes, I love his kicks and shifts.
Food cravings: Had several PB&J's for lunch this week, and polished off my Cadbury Eggs. No more for me, I'm not allowing it!
Symptoms: Sciatic nerve pain continues to show up randomly, getting tired easily, I feel like I can rest a drink on my belly, hmm...what else?
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Sweet little boy- WEEKS!
Labor Signs: I tried to pay a little more attention this week to see if I was having any braxton hicks. Pretty sure I had those several times and I think a few real contractions that woke me up while I was sleeping. Nothing regular or repetitive. But I'm hoping it's not just wishful thinking at this point!
Belly Button in or out? In/flat, might as well be out?
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!!
Looking forward to: Cannot wait for Weeks to make his debut!
