I know, what happened to Week 34? We’ve been having very busy weekends, and last weekend was no exception, so we kind of just didn’t get around to taking the weekly photo. We decided to take a couple of baby classes the this weekend and last weekend, so 4 hours last weekend and 8 hours this weekend, which might have been a bit much. Did we learn anything? We discovered we already knew a lot of the information presented in the Preparing for Childbirth class, but there were some useful tips and things that we took home – some stuff we hadn’t thought about. I can’t believe that Sunday is almost over – I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done and there’s so much to do! I guess I’ll just have to take it one day at a time and try and get a little something completed each night. Oh well, it was nice to pass up housework and go see a movie instead this morning (The Hunger Games). I know it’s going to become a lot more difficult to just go and see movies whenever it strikes us in the near future. 😉
It was a good week on the baby front overall. I feel like I got a lot done this past weekend, and we’re much closer to having the nursery ready to go. Baby clothes are cute and all, but a pain to fold. :p At least you can fit a lot in a single load of laundry, though! As for the baby, we had to have another ultrasound – they wanted to be sure my placenta had moved enough, and it has, which is great news. Even cooler was getting to see how much Baby Boy has grown. His eyes were open and we could actually see his eyes moving. The tech was also able to see hair on his little head, and we saw a close up of his ear because he is actually head down – very down and was kind of making it hard for the tech to see what she needed to. It also didn’t help that our appointment was at 4:15, but we didn’t get called back until 4:45 or so, and by then my full bladder was about to explode on it’s own anyway, but Baby Boy decided it would be great fun to poke and prod at it. Overall I’m just excited that things seem to be going well and couldn’t feel more lucky.
T’was an excellent week that included snow and another visit to the midwives, however this time we got to meet the second midwife we had not met yet (and whom I really like). She was trying to show us how to tell how baby is situated and recommended spinningbabies.com so we’re going to have to actually give that a try this upcoming week and see if we can’t track the Wonton better – he’s a mover.
We also had a fantastic baby shower, which is why I squeezed into my Batman shirt (it was Batman/Wonder Woman themed). Kim did such an amazing job – there was a ton of food and fun games and everyone had a blast, however… we didn’t take one picture. I know, I know… I chalk it up to there being no dull moments so neither of us pulled the camera out, plus it’s hard to balance a camera and yummy food whilst playing games and chatting and opening presents, am I right? It was a great day and it was nice that so many friends were able to come. We are lucky in more ways than one.
