October Update

FOUR WEEKS LEFT= 36 WEEKS
That's less than a month.
Whoa baby.
I feel so HEAVY.

...so some updates, since I really haven't been blogging for the past month or so...oops...

I had 2 baby showers at the end of September, and they were wonderfully fabulous. I got a zillion cute baby things--clothes, blankets, socks...and an AMAZING rocking chair from my mom-in-law...
Jeff and I were also able to buy a stroller/carseat combo with the group gift money, which was a huge blessing. I just wanted to thank all those that came. I got a TON of great things, all of which I'm so glad to have received. (A huge special thanks to Noelle and Vicki who threw the showers for me...I love you guys always! Oh, and I can't forget my lovely mother who has been there every step of the way!)

In other news, I got my flu shot. Yay flu shot. Too bad I got a cold the week before...fever, congestion, cough...I felt gypped.

Jeff and I just finished our two part Childbirth Preparation class tonight. It was awesomely hilarious to look over at Jeff while some of the...invasive...topics were being covered. For example, Jeff was turning green at the videos of natual birth, epidurals, and cesarean section surgery...but overall he said he was really glad he went. He learned a lot and was able to calm some of his fears by knowing what really happens. I think the class was ultimately more for him than it was for me, only because I knew almost everything that was covered from reading my pregnancy book. (Jeff thought the whole labor process was over in a few hours--contractions, pushing, and delivered baby all done in half a day...he didn't know it usually lasts about 24 hours) I was, however, able to learn some breathing techniques and labor positions I never knew about...Jeff had great fun being my breathing coach. Hee-hee-hoooooooooo!

I can't wait for Halloween...wanna know why??? Hopefully it'll be the last day of work!! Cross your fingers and hope that everything goes as planned...

...annnnnnd now...time for bed. I'm so tired. As in UBER tired.

You are CUTE-pregnant. I was glad to have your showers, they were both very fun and a good excuse to see people. Too bad you don't have a picture of Jeff's crazy expressions, hahaha, poor guy. So many new things to learn.

What a fun time of year to be having a baby. You are looking so cute! I think heavy is a good word to describe how you feel at this point in the pregnancy, but it will be over with soon and you will have a cute little baby to snuggle. I can't wait for you!

I have tried to message you TWICE on FB...

I asked Curtis to text Jeff to make sure you guys were alright because you never got back to me. I'm glad you two are doing alright...
