home stretch

I had a doctor's appt today. We met the CNM who will potentially be assisting in our delivery. She was very nice (young - not much older than us) and didn't object to anything on our birth plan, in fact she was very supportive of our wishes. She seems like a "hands off" type, which is what we want - given everything is going well.
My blood pressure is a little on the high side. Our CNM doesn't really want us going to the lake this weekend. We're torn, we're waiting to see where we feel led. Jeremy, Cindy and the girls are supposed to be going up there with us. I really want to go but would really hate to be stuck having the baby up there instead of here with my support team and all. Dangit. Wish I hadn't asked and we'd have just gone up in ignorance. Oh, well.... we'll see.
This is my last week at work. I'm ready to have a little break. Plus the CNM wants me to be off my feet as much as possible, and staying in out of the heat.
I has the baby showers over the last two weekends. It was so great to have so many ladies show up to support me. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful, godly women in my life that I can look to for guidance and encouragement as I start this new task of being a mother! And the gifts were great too!
We'll keep you posted if anything new comes up.

Baby Showers

Today is my "Friends" baby shower. I'm excited to see everyone and of course a little relieved to be making a dent in the mountain of stuff needed before this baby comes! I don't know what I'll be getting at the showers so I haven't bought much of anything yet. I don't want to buy too much of the same things... you know. I like these parties, its an excuse to see people you haven't seen in ages and celebrate a new life.
Last week we had our 34 week checkup. All is well, however my belly was measuring a little on the big side (the story of my life) and they want to keep and eye on it in case the baby is getting too big. I say if its a big baby its a big baby, not much we can do about it now, right. Anyway, we've met with our doula and finalized our birth plan. I'm getting anxcious to meet this person thats kicking me in the ribs all the time. We're so excited! We'd really appreciate your prayers for a safe and healthy rest of the pregnancy and (gulp) birth!

I'm counting down to this weekend! We're going to the lake again... this time we'll be taking a few friends with us! This summer is busy enough that it looks like we're only gonna be able to go up to Oakwood like once a month... I know we're spoiled but you'd take advantage of it too. Anyway, its so nice to just chill and relax, especially when pregnant!
