Summer is here!! I am all checked out at Metzger and ready to enjoy the last 8 weeks of pregnancy! What a weird feeling to know I won’t be back at Metzger this fall. I’m sure after the baby comes I will be so busy that I won’t notice it as much, but right now I feel like I’m going to miss teaching a lot. It will be a year full of new adventures, I guess!
I had my 32 week appointment last week and everything is still looking great. The baby is measuring right on schedule and my iron levels are back up. I now have appointments every two weeks until the middle of July. Then they switch to every week. I have been having nerve pain in my right hip because the baby seems to like to stay on my right side most of the time. Some physical therapy and exercises help it a little, but there is no real relief until the baby is born. I have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far, so if this is as bad as it gets, I am very lucky!! This weekend it is supposed to be in the 90’s here in Portland, so I may go enjoy my aunt’s swimming pool! That should take a little pressure off as well!
Grandma Janet was in town this past week to attend a joint bridal/baby shower for my future sister-in-law Lauren and I thrown by 3 of my aunts! It was so nice that she could come out for a shower! The shower was amazing, I’ll post some pictures and there are more on our photos page. Thanks everyone for your generosity and excitement for this baby! We really feel your love and support!
While Janet was here we also got a little more done in the baby’s room. We got the pack & play and the swing set up, the clothes organized by size, and the valance (that Joni made, thanks Joni!!!) put up. I’ll post some pictures of putting the swing together! It was quite a process!! We also had a great time shopping and hanging out!
Time is flying by! I’m glad summer is here so I can have lots of time to get organized and ready for the baby. What a fun summer it will be!!
Beautiful and delicious cake for Lauren and me!
