Hopeful Thoughts


30 Weeks Update

We’re in the third trimester home stretch!

The last few weeks have seen lots of milestones in the pregnancy.

On May 11th, Ryan and I started out birthing classes through the Inanna Birth Center.  We meet once a week for 6 weeks.  So far we have covered various pain coping techniques as well as the different stages of labor.  Tomorrow is movie night.  Oh, yeah…you know what I’m talking about!!!  Overall, this has been a great experience.  It’s taught by the midwives from the birthing center, so it’s been a great chance to get to know them better before our big day.

On May 14th, while I was at my reunion, my dear college friends threw me a little shower for Grayson.  This was his first shower so far.   We met at a restaurant near campus for a casual celebration.  Thanks so much to all my college girls for your time and thoughtful gifts!

So cute! I can't wait to see Grayson in this! Thanks Susan and Erin~

These will be fun in the tub when Grayson gets a little older.

This week we were able to have a sonogram to see how the baby is growing.  He’s much bigger than the 16 week shots, weighing in at over 3 pounds!  Our little guy is a wiggle worm, and he’s changing position on a regular basis.  When the sonogram first started, there was some concern about the baby being breech.  However, he rotated to being completely transverse within a matter of minutes, so he’s still got plenty of room and time to get into the right position!

I count 5 toes!!!

Such cute little feet!

Glad to see that he's using his time wisely!

I think that I am falling in love.

And if all goes well, our Roly Poly bundle will come home to a house all his very own.  We are set to close on our house this Friday, provided all falls into place.  We think we’ve overcome all the obstacles at this point, but the deal is not done until all the papers are signed.
