We had a pretty relaxing weekend…didn’t do much. Saturday I went to my sister in law Rebecca’s baby shower. She is due with Arielle within a day of my due date. These cousins are going to be like twins, which is crazy because Terence and I are about 10 years older than his sister and we are both having babies at the same time! I never would have imagined that, but God has the perfect timing for everything! It was also fun to shop for girly stuff for someone 🙂
Sunday we went to church and I invited my friend Julie from work to go with us and she came! I was so excited she came with us and I hope she comes back with us soon! Afterwards we did our Sunday grocery shopping and hit up Costco and Kroger.
Terence and I have been going walking every night after I get off work. There is a lake with ducks on the other side of the neighborhood. We usually walk to the lake and find a bench, sit for awhile then walk back home. It’s probably about a mile. The only thing is that this past week I started getting CANKLES!!!! Ahhh!!! I have started to swell up like a wet sponge!
Last night Terence and I watched a video his Mom gave us called The Business of Being Born. It was very good and really makes you think about all the drugs hospitals pump you full of and what doctor’s do to have babies born on their schedules instead of what’s best for the baby . It had a lot of valid points in it, but this late in my pregnancy I think I am just going to stick to my hospital birth plan. One thing I am going to do is ask a lot more questions about what they are doing to me in the hospital.
Okay-Now I wanted to ask a question….
What should I pack for the hospital?
I don’t have a bag packed yet and was wondering what you packed
or think is/was the MOST necessary.
