It's been quite busy the last couple of weeks, but here is a quick recap...
First, the weekend before halloween my mother-in-law Mary threw me a baby shower down here in AZ. It was so fun and I am so grateful for all of the wonderful gifts everyone so generously gave me. I now feel ready. If my baby were to come at any time I feel like I'm pretty much prepared. (Thanks to all of the showers I've had the last couple of weeks)
|This was my favorite:) It's the only time that that is true!|
Thank you so much! I am so grateful for all of the adorable gifts. I loved it:)
Then on Halloween around 11:30 in the afternoon I was driving home from the grocery store when Zack called me and said we had to drive to Utah right then! He had a meeting up there the next morning that he had just found out about it and since its a long drive we had to get on the road as soon as we could. So we threw some clothes in a bag and 15 minutes later we were off! It was so crazy, but kinda fun. We drove the rest of the day and got in around 12:30 that night.
Then we were thinking of leaving after Zack was done with all of his business and then Ashly got a call from her Dr. saying that they needed to induce her. So through some amazing miracle, we got to be there when Ashly had her baby!!! We got to spend time with her while she was laboring and then we were the first (besides my mom) to see little Naomi. Oh I just cried because I was so grateful that we were able to be there. None of this was planned, but it all just worked out perfectly. It was so informative to be able to see what we are going to be going through in the next couple of weeks. Ashly was amazing and made it all seem so simple. Thank you Naomi for coming when I was there! It made me soooooo happy to be able to experience all of that. Here is Ashly and Mike's newest, beautiful addition: Naomi Rose Costa.
I know my little girl and Naomi will be best cousins!
Then finally here is a picture of me at 33 weeks. It's getting closer! I love being pregnant, but I'm getting bigger and everything is getting a lot harder. Demonstrating while I'm teaching is quite ridiculous. It takes so much more energy to do anything and I just look silly doing it. I sleep really well surprisingly and don't wake up in the middle of the night. I don't really have any pain or any major complaints, I'm just feeling a little uncomfortable. Breathing is a bit more labored and finding clothes to wear is frustrating. But she moves ALL day long and I love feeling her. You can see her movements so clearly now and feel the outline of whatever body part she tries stretching at the moment. She's a little over 4 lbs. and about 17 inches long ( so baby center says). Since she is getting so big I can tell she is getting pretty cramped in there. However, the end is in sight and I'm counting down the days!
