All's Well that Ends Well

Last week was an extremely stressful week for both Jory and I. By the time we got to Friday, I was ready to throw in the towel! We had been planning throughout the pregnancy to go on a Babymoon towards the end, and we had decided on a weekend trip to Jefferson for the last weekend in January. That's all I knew and I figured we'd fly by the seats of our pants on the details. I was actually wondering by Friday if we should even go because both of our nerves were completely shot. BUT...my husband won the Wonderful award that day!

My husband had planned the entire babymoon without my knowing and had dinner reservations, a scheduled carriage ride, lunch places, an awesome B&B with the best room ever and a present for me! OH! I LOVE presents and that's how my wonderful weekend started - with a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful new watch to thank me for carrying our baby for nine months. Is that not the sweetest thing? Then we headed to Jefferson and checked into our wonderful B&B and proceeding to have one of the most relaxing weekends in memory. It was wonderful and I am so thankful for it.

I have lots of pictures and we'll post them this week. We have a pretty busy week, though, so it may take a while. We did take my 36 week pregnancy picture to post and I'll try to get that on here tomorrow. Be warned - I am so big!!! :) I guess I'm supposed to be at this point, right? I've gained 31 pounds now and my pregnancy goal was 30-35. With four weeks left to go, I'm not sure how that's gonna work...

We have our last birthing class tonight and our breast feeding class tomorrow. Wednesday is our 36 week doctor's appointment. She'll start checking for dilation, position, etc. I can help her out with the position - the child is still in my ribs and lungs. FOUR people told me Friday that I am carrying really high. Yes. I know. Thank you. I think there may be an arm in my throat. Thursday we get to see our pain management nurse for the last time and then were are in the final days. I'll be full term next week!

How sweet of your husband?! You are so lucky your doctor is checking you. Mine is not checking till next week at my 39 week apt!

Way to go Jory! Lots of TLC.

Sara, I love your descriptions of little one's positions. An arm in your throat--that's a new one. Having your bladder used as a foot rest is no fun either, so let's hope baby drops just right.
Love-mom

Your hubby is amazing! I am so glad you had a wonderful weekend! We were hoping to get away somewhere fun before the baby, but it never happened! I can't wait to see the pictures. I know the feeling about weight gain and being all baby. I tell Flint that I think the kiddo is already about 6 or 7 lbs! I hope I am wrong!

You are so close!! Can you believe that your sweet baby will be here before you know it??? Tell you husband that he rocks and is so thoughtful and sweet. Pass some over here to my husband please. hee!hee! So glad that you were able to enjoy your weekend and relax. You needed it!!!! I think your little one has told my son how fun it is to be positioned in Mom's ribs. That is where Chance seems to enjoy himself these days. Brynlee is just moving all over the place...typical girl right? My prayer for you this week will be that the baby drops. Post your pictures!!!
