Baby Shower and Update
I have to admit, we received quite a bit of items, but our house, thankfully, is not cluttered at all. Everything has a place and his room is soooo cute! I am waiting for our never-arriving decals to come in and put up, and then I'll post a picture of the nursery..... it just doesn't feel complete without them. The seller from Etsy.com is sending out another set and should be here by next week via express post. So I have my fingers crossed!
Once I get some photos, I'll post them up here from the shower.
There were a few items that I was really excited to get, however, all the gifts received were just what we wanted/needed. We got a few extra things that I didn't register for, which made things even more exciting because, well they are just fun/cute. One example is the LeapFrog My Pals Scout! I started to play with this little guy last night, but gave up because I think I need to connect to a PC and didn't feel like walking to the other side of the room to Ryan's laptop (I have a Mac).
Some really cool items that we got, I'd like to share:
The Uppa Baby Stroller
Grovia AIO Cloth Diapers
Baby Brezza Food Steamer/Puree Machine
Skip/Hop Treetop Friends Bedding
Had an OB appointment on Wednesday, and so far, there is no real change. Cervix is a bit softer and dropped a bit, but nothing that is showing labour signs. I had the "go-ahead" to resume normal activities starting today, 36 weeks along, so I have been using some Organic Jasmine essential oils on the belly (which is supposed to help with stretch marks as well) and walking. I went to the gym after about 2 months, and boy, can I feel it. I was able to do half an hour (with breaks) and called it quits. It's nice to get back into a routine, I'm still taking it easy, but definitely more active, and it's wonderful.
I will now be seeing my OB weekly, and at the hospital weekly too - at the hospital, one week is just a non-stress test (where they see the baby's heart beat and watch for exceleration as he moves/kicks), and then the following week is the ultrasound/biophysical profile and non stress test. So Wednesday's are definitely busy busy mornings for me!
I want to do one more good cleaning of the house in the next couple weeks, and then I have to say, I'm ready...... I mean, I would be ready now, but I wouldn't mind another week or two just to get some things right in order - house wise.
We have a busy weekend coming up. Tonight we are going out to Centro for Ryan's birthday (33!!) and then tomorrow day/night is a very good friend's wedding, and Sunday/Monday night is more birthday celebrations (yes, they go on for a week around here!) I think I'm going to eat lots of spicy foods this weekend!!!
