It has been a good week with lots of exciting baby things. We are now at 37 weeks, so I am technically "full term" and this baby could make her entrance at anytime! I can't believe we are to this point...we have been waiting for April to get here and it actually is now...ahhh! We had a checkup Friday and received more good news. The doctor said I am about 80% effaced and 2-3 cm dilated, so progress has been made. I was glad to hear that because I definitely feel way more uncomfortable and am feeling the pains and cramps that go along with my cervix changing! Her heartbeat was strong and she has grown in the past week. Nate and I can't wait to meet her!!! I also had a shower this week, hosted by my wonderful friends at school. They really went all out and did such a beautiful job with the decorations, food and gifts. Our baby's closet has definitely grown from all of the precious outfits and dresses we received. I felt very loved, appreciated, and supported. I am going to love being home with my baby during my maternity leave, but I will miss seeing my friends on a daily basis at school. I really do have a great staff that I work with. The pictures are of my huge 37 week belly and the baby shower!
