37 weeks

Come this Friday the baby is considererd full-term! That means that if I go into labor they will not stop it. The babies lungs should be fully developed, and some say when that happens a chemical is released in my body that lets me know that it's time! We are pretty much prepared for that time to come! We have one class (Newborn Care) left on Monday.

Thank you, Becky and Erika, for putting on such a nice couples shower for us on Saturday. And thanks to all who came. We recieved so many nice things I couldn't wait to get the nursery ready. On Sunday we set the baby room up (see the picture of Keir setting up the crib).

I'm still feeling very well and getting that walk in with the dogs everyday. I am trying to get as much sleep as I can (advise from other moms of newborns). Here is a picture of me at 36 weeks. We now start our weekly Doctor visits.
