Week 36 and a Christmas Concert
On Saturday I started week 36 of my pregnancy! What a blessing to be 4 weeks more pregnant with this babe than I was with Joshua. Some pregnancy observations:
a) my longest t-shirts are no longer fitting all the way past my belly (which is fine when I'm inside, but quite chilly in the weather we've been having because the wind whips up under my winter jacket and makes the bottom of my huge abdomen quite cold!)
b) I have NEVER been this big ... no really, even my family has been commenting on how HUGE I am!
c) We had a false alarm last week (at 35 weeks) ... lots of pressure and some contractions but by the time I got to the hospital they had all but subsided. The Dr. thought babe was still head down and everything looked great!
d) I saw my Dr. last week too ... he said that we are past the time that is critical and that whenever this baby decides to come will be just fine. I walked out of the office like I was on a cloud - so very happy!
e) I'm pretty tired these days ... and not even doing anything, except chasing Joel and Josh around.
f) I'm really enjoying the end of this pregnancy ... loving the feeling of this little life inside me moving and kicking! Amazing that in less than 4 weeks he or she will be here!
g) today was the first day I actually started getting excited about the baby being here (don't get me wrong I've been excited all along ... I just mean that it will be nice to have my body back and to be holding the baby in my arms instead of lugging it around in my abdomen!)
Monday was Joel's last day of play school before the Christmas holidays! We were invited to a wonderful Christmas concert from the kids! So glad that Grandma and Grandpa W and Grandma V could join our family! The children sang us some beautiful Christmas songs and then we enjoyed treats and making crafts.
