35 Weeks Today

35 weeks now and in my head, the countdown has really started. Amazing to think baby girl is full-term in 2 weeks and due in only 5! Wow!

After my shower, I feel so much more prepared in terms of buying baby things; my friends and family have been so generous - especially my mum and dad. I did a quick bit of research and I think in order to get the rest of the stuff we'll need, it will be about $1000. Which is really not bad, considering we've received so many wonderful gifts which helped bring down the baby costs by so much. I told D about my spending plan and at first he was shocked by the amount, but when I explained to him that it is a one-time cost to get everything we need for this kid to be off to a great start, he was a bit more agreeable. Babies are expensive - there is just no getting around it.

We have our last childbirthing class tonight. I will be relieved to have them under our belt and I think D will be relieved to have them over with. He does not do hippie. And unfortunately, this is the style of our instructor. She is very knowledgeable but she is all about the ooey-gooey-touchy-feely stuff. Not our style at all, although I am more tolerant of it than D is. Truthfully, though, the classes have indeed helped me feel more prepared.

So the belly is still growing by leaps and bounds. In fact, just last night we had some friends over for dinner and at one point, I stood up from the table, went into the kitchen and came back. One of my friends exclaimed, "I can't believe this! You've grown even more since leaving the table 5 minutes ago!"

Here's a 35 week belly pic for ya:

I'm still nervous for my scan on Tuesday. I am really hoping and praying that my amniotic fluid levels have decreased a bit, putting me square in the normal range. At the very least, I just hope the levels haven't increased at all. It makes me anxious just thinking about Tuesday. Good thoughts are needed and appreciated!

In the long run, $1000 isn't bad! We've looked at some of what we need to get that we're unlikely to get at my shower and although it's made FD's head swim, I've very carefully explained (several times) that this stuff will last us for awhile - through several babies hopefully - and that getting it all now instead of waiting is just really a good idea.

Yay for you for 35 weeks...and the countdown begins!!!
