I'm 35 weeks today! Only five more to go... maybe more, or maybe less.
I've had a busy week this last week including my baby shower! My mom, my sister, and both my wonderful mother-in-laws (Josh's mom and step-mom) helped throw it for me. 35 people attended, which was amazing!
I had a lot of fun talking with so many people.
We also announced the baby's name.....
We had so many wonderful gifts from the shower and now my living room looks like it could be a small scale Babies R Us, or another baby store! We have more than everything we could possibly need or want for Silas. Now I'm just waiting for him to arrive. I'm hoping he'll stay in place for at least another 3 weeks. My mom thinks he'll come in April, but I have no idea when he'll be here... when he is good and ready I'm sure!
This Saturday we have our birthing class and I'm looking forward to that. I have another appointment with my midwife on Tuesday, and then I start seeing her weekly. I can't believe I'm at weekly appointments already! Josh and I had a sneak preview of the hospital when we went to L&D triage three weeks ago, but we need to do an offical tour of the hospital. Unfortunatly they only do them on the first and third Saturday of the month. This Saturday is the first of the month, but we will be in our birthing class all day, so we'll have to do it on the 17th. That will be a busy week too. On the 14th I have a breastfeeding class, and the 16th is the field trip for my kindergarteners as well as my last day of school! I'm looking forward to maternity leave though. Silas has grown so much and I'm becoming very uncomfortable while at work. Only two more weeks though and I can focus on being at home and preparing for him!
And now for some pictures
