What a fun week! We enjoyed attending three 1st birthday parties and topped it off with an 80’s themed 40th birthday party. We also brought dinner to a bookclub friend and met her 5 week old little girl. Having the comparison of 5 weeks to 1 year was a great reminder to enjoy every day as kids change so much in the first year.
It was really fun to get dressed up and have a fun night out of dancing at the 80’s prom party. I won’t mention whose outfit we found in his closest vs. having to visit Value Village to get a dress for me 😉
This week marks the start of weekly doctor appointments and the last of our birth classes. BK has a strong heartbeat, is heads down and appears to be of “normal” size. The doctor will give us a weight prediction at 38 weeks, but says she doesn’t anticipate him being a 10lb baby at this point (thank goodness). I am measuring 36cms at 35 weeks which is good, my ankles are still a little swollen, but the doctor confirmed it is normal for this stage. We still haven’t narrowed down the potential names from our list of 30 or so, but we have time and apparently up to 9 days after BK is born to make a decision.
Our birth class ended with a tour of the hospital so we now know where all the excitement is going to happen.
The weather has been very nice and we continue to go for walks at least a few times a week. The only change I have noticed is my need for “smoke breaks” as Adrienne calls them to help me catch my breath. Rob assures me I haven’t started to waddle yet and that my pace is that of a casual stroll and not a snail.
