The growing bump

27 weeks 5 days

28 weeks 3 days

29 weeks 2 days

29 weeks 2 day

30 weeks 3 days

I feel like my belly has grown so much in the last few weeks. I physically feel bigger and my body is moving much slower these days.

It's almost unbelievable that in 9-10 weeks I'll be holding our newborn son.
Between now and then we have so much happening...

This Saturday we have an ultrasound (31 weeks 2 days)
Next Tuesday we have a prenatal appointment with our midwife
March 19th we are going on a mini-weekend trip
March 27th is my baby shower
April 3rd is our birthing class
April 14th is my breast feeding class
April 15th I'll be consider full term
April 16th is my last day at work

And I'll have a few more appointments with my midwife mixed in there too. It just seems like so much and not a lot of time!

Fortunately the baby's room is pretty much finished. We registered for a few things that will finish it off, but overall it's ready to go.
I need to wash and prep diapers and clothing for him. We are fortunate to have family who are giving us hand-me-downs from their son, who happens to be our god son. I know our little guy will never be in need for clothing, and adorable clothing at that!
Things are slowly falling into place which is wonderful. I've been having what I think are Braxton Hicks contractions and some pretty uncomfortable back pain, but otherwise I'm doing well. I'm still not sleeping a great deal, but I anticipate not sleeping much once the baby gets here anyway.
Oh and I think we finally have a name, but we aren't sharing it just yet!

wow! Time is flying-it always does when you ahve something to look forward to. So you're done on the 16th eh! I thought you were going to just go as long as you could like Lisa. But 3rd trimester is so exhausting I don't know how she did it. :) April is when we have to ok to take Henry into school. I'm excited to show my old kids (which ever ones are still there).
