At 36 weeks, everything continues to be going well with our little growing baby. It has been a really nice spring break for me and Nate is just starting his. I have created quite a list for him...I am lucky to have such a wonderful helpful husband. I tried to be as productive as possible with my time off but also get much needed rest. I feel like I got a lot accomplished with preparation for the baby, like packing my hospital bag, washing some of the newborn clothes, getting lesson plans done for my maternity leave, and organizing/decorating the nursery. I also went out and bought a "coming home" outfit for our little girl which I am really excited about. I can't believe that we could be days/weeks away from becoming parents. I had my weekly checkup on Tuesday and we got a lot of good news. My doctor said the baby's heartbeat was still very strong and I am measuring right on, although he thinks we will have a small baby. Her head is down and creating some pressure, so I am definitely getting more uncomfortable and walking around is painful at times. He said I was 70% effaced and 1 cm dilated at that point, so I was very happy to hear that. Hopefully things continue to progress! I posted a picture of me at 36 weeks and a picture of the nursery thus far. The wall decorations can't be posted yet, because it involves her name, which is a surprise until she arrives! More pictures to come as we add more to the room.
