Wow - only a month to go until our due date. Hard to believe!
This week Miss Lily is weighing in at around 6lbs and is probably about 19 - 20 inches long! All systems at this point are a go. All of the articles, books, and websites, are now talking about being ready for baby to come any time. Have your bags packed, the plan in place... basically hurry up and wait!
We're not overly worked up and certainly are not tapping our foot with impatience. We know that she'll arrive when she's good and ready and we've had no real signs that it's going to be any time soon. But we're not crazy either, we have the car installed and should she come home now we're mostly pulled together.
One of the hiring managers I support at work was in town (from Connecticut) and gave us the sweetest gift, an adorable plush lamb and a book she loved with her own kids. It was very sweet!
We've also started meeting with Rachel to do our childbirth education classes. She's getting her doula business off the ground and childbirth education is one of the services she will be offering. While a lot of the details are things we've heard before in one way or another, it's been great to put things together in a logical order and to talk them through together. We so appreciate her help and guidance!
Here I am at 36 weeks:
This next week is action packed, I'm looking forward to bringing you our adventures - baby showers, another doctors appointment (with ultrasound!), our anniversary, and last - but definitely not least - a babymoon getaway!
