37 Weeks Pregnant!

For prior weeks click here! Week 37!! We are officially full term, we are in the final countdown! Can you believe it!
We participated in our childbirth workshop this week. It was an all day class from 9-5 and boy was it informative. They showed us so many different ways that our partners could help out with back pain, they explained the different levels that you go through leading up to delivery, calming techniques, birth with or without medication, what to pack, what you don't need etc. The class was a lot of fun and extremely informative.

During this week I began having bizarre dreams as well, all of them included a babygirl. I guess that's my minds way of saying that it's getting close. Maneuvering is a daily challenge. Chris always says to get him if I need anything but I still find myself trying to be self sufficient. It seems like I am up every 2 to 3 hours every night because the little darling is on my bladder. The other night I tried to get up and I swear I ripped an ab muscle!! It burned. Chris said again that I need to wake him up anytime that I need to get up so that he can help me. I am so fortunate to have him. Though he is always attentive to me even prior to the baby, he has continued to be his regular attentive self catering to me hand and foot. I am so blessed. For mornings when he has to leave early to get to the gym or work, he even crated a handle for me to pull to help me roll out of bed.

Though mentally prepared there are still some things that we need to take care of. The other day my sister Von and her family came over because we needed a nursery intervention. I found myself stuck on some ideas. My little brother Datus came over as well with his girlfriend Kayla. All of us were in the nursery hanging out and brainstorming. That was a lot of fun, we ordered pizza and made a night of it. Von even surprised us with one of the pieces of artwork that we registered for!
This surprised us because she had already done so much for us with our shower, our anniversary etc. She is truly an amazing person.

In this week our first fabric came in from fabric.com. It's called Gotcha and though this isn't the best photo, it's kind of a hot pink:
 My dad ordered our chair base for us and it too came in this week! He really wanted to help out in anyway he could and this was the perfect chance! This is really going to come in handy for us because we are able to turn our recliner into a swivel rocker!! And we're doing it without the $500 cost that we would have had to pay if we purchased one outright from a furniture store.
I'll be sure to post on exactly how we plan on using the fabric and how the chair progresses soon!

I wanted my husband to be attentive like yours is when I was pregnant - 3 times! He would actually watch me bring in the groceries from the car. lol

It wasn't intentional. Some guys just don't think about it as others do. He's a sweetheart in so many other ways, though. :)
