I have really been slack about blogging over the past few weeks. Life has been a whirlwind lately. I'd like to think it will slow down soon but, with a baby coming in just 6 or so weeks, it may not!
Speaking of babies, we just finished up 4 weeks of child birth classes last night. We had a wonderful instructor (thanks Amanda!!) and I found the classes to be so helpful. I really haven't been at all nervous about the whole labor process (I can't say the same for Chris) but this class made me even more comfortable with the whole idea of giving birth. I at least now feel like I know what to expect (even though you never really know what to expect) and know the right questions to ask/things to do when the time comes. Chris clearly enjoyed the classes too:
Chris and I have had quite a bit of quality time together over the past few weekends as the twins are currently transitioning to a potential adoptive family. I haven't blogged much (or at all) about our foster care journey lately because everything has been so up in the air and we don't know what's going on most of the time. But, I would ask that you say a prayer as we go back to court next Monday. The Lord has placed a wonderful potential adoptive family in the boy's lives and we pray that it is His will that all the details work out for the boys to be living there before the baby's born.
But anyways, in our quality time together, Chris and I have been able to get quite a bit accomplished in the nursery. We finally got all the furniture positioned just right (until I decide it needs to be moved again! just kidding Chris...maybe). I'll post some pictures as soon as we have it done. We are still deciding on where to put pictures on the wall, etc.
At 34 weeks pregnant, I still feel great! I really don't have any complaints other than it's getting a bit harder to find a comfortable position to sleep. My energy level has been good and I'm still exercising as much as possible. I do get some funny looks in the gym, especially when I'm lifting weights. My doctor's appointments have been going well. I am measuring right on track and my weight gain is appropriate. After my next appointment, I'll start going every week! It's hard to believe that we could meet our precious son in 6 weeks or less!
Here's what I'm looking like lately (although this was taken 2 weeks ago and I have grown a bit since then!):
