Labor of Love

Its been a couple of weeks since our last post and we have been so busy. Well...not really. Baby and I are doing well after catching yet another cold and being off work for almost the whole week. Of course there isn't a huge selection of meds that you can take once you're pregnant, so you just have to weather the storm.

We're going into week 29 (see pic below) and our To-Do list is getting longer by the day, which is causing me to get a little anxious. It hadn't occurred to Nick and I that Baby could come early....what then? We've been kind of coasting along thinking we have 3 whole months left. We may want to actually start some form of preparation for our little bundle, starting with deciding on a name. We'll get on it this week....I promise.
We also started birthing class two weeks ago. Lets just say, I thought this "Labor of Love" class was supposed to put your mind at ease at least somewhat, not scare the crap out of you. We've watched the infamous "live birth" video (which I believe is the same video I watched in my 7th grade Sex Ed class), practiced breathing techniques, visited the nursery, and walked through the various steps of labor. I will admit, the best part is that there is no shortfall of snacks provided and the spouses have to give you massages...who wouldn't love that???

Please keep us in your prayers as we get closer to the arrival of our little man. 29 Weeks and counting...
