35 weeks here we are! Feeling good and getting excited!
My grandmother told me recently that when she was pregnant, her doctor instructed her to walk at least a mile a day. I'm taking her doctor's suggestion seriously for the rest of my pregnancy. While I fell off the bandwagon during the holiday break, I'm back on and enjoying it.
It's been really cold this week, so I met friends, on both Tuesday and Wednesday, to walk at Brookwood Mall. It reminds me of when I was a kid and how funny I thought it looked to see people 'mall-walking' at Eastwood Mall. I'm officially an adult...and thankful for it! I only feel bad when I leave my Azaria behind and promise her that it will get warmer out and we will walk again.
We had an ultrasound last week. After my friend Emily C mentioned that she requested a 4D shot of her baby boy, I thought I'd try the same thing :) While the tech was kind to move us to another room for that option, our baby A has let us know that he/she is a stubborn little one!
Irena, the tech, kept saying in her thick Russian accent, "come on baby, move your hand!" While we may not have seen some shots that other parents see, I was just excited to catch this glimpse. How cute is that nose?! Anyone want to take a stab at who baby A looks like??
We're getting close to the big day, so I'm researching how I can prepare in case we have an early delivery. I'll be packing our hospital bags in the next week and finalizing my birth plan as well. While I realize everything will not go as planned, with a natural birth on the horizon--it's better for me to think through what I hope for. Only time will tell, and I can't wait to share my birth story when all is said and done.
