Last day of work and summertime fun!

Yay! My maternity leave has begun! 

Friday was my last day. I can't tell you how good this morning feels not having to drag myself up and out for the commute into work! 

Friday wasn't really a work day, it was longcoffee breaks and lunch breaks with the great people I work with. Then off early to begin my maternity leave. 

Oh! And the last day of summer camp for little k! He will be off with me for the summer! But then to a new school in 
September so there was some sad goodbyes Friday too :( 

Then the weekend! It was a long weekend, August civic holiday! 

We planned a jammed packed weekend. Could be the last before baby ha! 

First up. A little bbq party at our place. 
We have no fences in our backyard yet so we put up a tent and some tables and had a great time. The kids loved having access to the neighbors play set too! 

Lots of fun! The party went on to 230am! 

The next day we had more fun planned. My aunt and uncles annual summer pool party! 

Ok, being in the water pregnant is the best feeling!!!! When I was floating in the deeper end holding on to the noodle I felt my joints loosen up and not feel so stiff. My body felt Sooo relaxed! 

Always the best time with family! 

Our family is growing Soo much!!! 

With 7 of us grandchildren and almost 6 grandchildren, with many more to come! 
Can't wait to see how filled this pool is in the next 5-10years! Ha! 

The next day we still had a more fun planned! A beach day!!! We found a beach only an hour away. A perfect place with a playground for the kids and clean water to play in! 

The kids had a blast! We will be making this a summer tradition with family. 

Cousin love! And at least 2 more cousins to be joining here :) next year baby Michael will be in this wagon! 

Hope you all had a great weekend too!!!

First day of my maternity leave and patiently waiting for baby Michael! 

We are all so excited to meet him!!!

37 weeks pregnant update!

This week!
How Far Along: 37 weeks!

Size of baby: FULL TERM!

Movement: Lots of movement and hiccups

Sleep: Up more often because of pressure on my bladder!

Cravings: CHOCOLATE!

Symptoms: Same as last week. Joints are sore.

Best Moment so far: Setting up the Nursery! Check it out!

What I'm looking forward to? Meeting my little boy's little face!

Yesterday I went on a tour of the Labour and Delivery Ward in the hospital.  There were about 15 couples on the tour. Lots of preggos!

They showed us where to check in when we get there and the actual delivery rooms. They are not too big and only allow at most 2 people. I will have only my husband in the delivery room so it's ok. They also have Jacuzzi's and birth balls if I want to use them.  I seen the delivery bed and the huge lights that will shine down when delivery is happening. EEK!!!

They also have a baby warmer station within the room.  If baby is healthy and doesn't need any urgent care then they keep the baby in the same room for tests and clean up :) Once delivery is over they will then transfer me to another area where family and friends can visit :) We have large families so I requested a Private room, but my hospital only has 3, and it's first come first serve. So we'll see I guess. 

It felt so real walking through the delivery area, and I thought, OMG I'm gonna HAVE A BABY!! haha. The new babies were crying too, and new dads out in the halls holding their little bundles with big smiles on their faces. So sweet. I felt so emotional.

Now that I'm 37 weeks the baby is considered full term. He can now come any time he likes! :)

Thanksgiving weekend, OB appt and Belly pics!

 We had AMAZING weather this weekend! All weekend it felt like summer! Saturday afternoon the Nursery furniture arrived! It was so exciting and exhausting putting it all together. It's almost done, so I will blog about it soon! Sunday we had a party for my grandmothers 80th birthday! It was a thanksgiving/bday party. My grandmother was so happy with all her gifts and loved having the whole family over to share her special birthday. We all love her sooo much!

Yesterday we went to the inlaws for Thanksgiving Dinner. The weather was soo nice, and for the first time we actually had Thanksgiving dinner outside on the patio! Awesome weather! The Turkey was delicious, and we all ate soo much!

This morning I had an OB appointment. Now I will be seeing her weekly. This week I'll be 37 weeks, eek!
Doctor felt my tummy and asked if I feel a lot of pressure since the baby's head is really low and in position... I said YES! All weekend I felt a pinching feeling along with pressure and could hardly stand. She said the baby is a average size, not too small but not big either, so next week we will to an ultrasound to get more of an accurate size of the baby. I'm thinking he will be 7lbs like I was.

OB thinks little one will come earlier than his due date Nov 4. So the count down is on! Friends and Family all have their guesses in! ahah!

She also stated that fetal movement is most important these coming weeks. If I do not feel at least 6 movements in a day, I'll need to go to the hospital ASAP! She also did the bacteria swap test (GBS) today. (Hope I'm clear!)

This week we will be taking a tour of the Maternity ward at our hospital :) Fun!
