37 Weeks - Full Term!

Baby Land: Well, it seems like time has flown by so quickly, i'm already 37 weeks preggo! It sure did sneak up on me. If I was to have the baby now it would be considered full term and it would most likely not need any extra care, so that's good to know. The midwife also said that I can start 'helping' the baby along its way. I have already purchased some red raspberry leaf tea and may start drinking it once I feel I'm ready and organized for baby to arrive. That's not to say that anything I do will help baby come sooner, but you never know!
Also, a week ago or so Jeff and I did a tour of the hospital. It's a nice hospital and it seems small and cute, but I'm not too sure I can picture myself labouring there. Our hope is to try for a home birth, and if for some reason I don't feel comfortable with it at the time or if something goes 'wrong' then we can always go to the hospital as it's not too far away :)

Easter: Last weekend my parents came over to the Island and saw our house for the first time! It was great to have our first real house guests as they stayed two nights here. It was nice to have house guests but I sure did notice myself getting tired quickly. Jeff and my Dad ended up puting up our very own clothesline and got the garden ready to go. My Mom and I did a little bit of shopping and got a few things like hanging baskets so that I'll be ready to plant them when the time comes. Thanks for being such great house guests you two!
On the Friday of this weekend Jeff and I also made our first trip up Island since moving over here. We went up in the morning to Ladysmith to wish his Mom a Happy Birthday and to go out for lunch :)

Baby Moon: As my parents were leaving, Jeff and I went over on the ferry with them and headed in to Vancouver where we stayed at our friend's apartment in English Bay with a beautiful view! (He was out of town). We caught a movie, had a nice dinner, strolled along the sea wall, watched blue herons (there's a heap of them nesting in Stanley Park), and relaxed. It was so nice to just do whatever we wanted and enjoy each others company. On the Tuesday Jeff went to work while I went to a few baby stores and Ikea. Got that out of my system for a while! :)
Oh yes, in the morning of the Monday Jeff and I headed out to UBC with our photographer to take some maternity photos. We went to a spot where we were alone and she got some lovely shots! I have a few posted on my facebook if you want to check them out, or you can look at her website at www.lucida-photography.com

That's all for now! Thanks for reading :)
