This was really a good week in my world! First of all, I woke up to the nicest treat on Monday morning… some of my best blogger friends threw me a surprise virtual baby shower! Since I didn’t have an actual shower this was even more special. The posts were so nice and the recipes all sounded pretty darn amazing. If somehow we could make this a real life thing it would be even better.

The second really great thing was that the baby moved all by himself! Now, I realize that if he moved once, he can move again, but the fact that I didn’t have to go for a version on Friday ended up being a big relief. I know that the procedure is really not too big of a deal but there is a super small risk that during that the baby can go into distress and you end up with an emergency c-section. I was mildly panicked that this was my last week to get anything done pre-baby. Not that I don’t feel ready, but that just made it overwhelming. Anyway, it could have been the ice pack trick and / or the yoga moves. Whatever it was, I’m just happy that as of Tuesday’s 37-week appointment his head was down. Cross your fingers that we see the same thing at the next doctor visit! I actually have a big pregnancy update coming Thursday so I’ll be sure to give you the update. Thanks for all of the nice comments and suggestions you made.
Finally, we got to enjoy a nice holiday with family on Wednesday. Normally we go somewhere but I wasn’t up for much travelling this year so our parents both came to be with us that afternoon. Not only that, but they also brought most of the food…. and did almost all of the cleanup. I think I might miss this pregnancy thing after all;-) Next weekend my sister is hosting Break the Fast nearby so that will be nice too. Can’t say I’ll miss the fasting this year!
