Week 37


We are in full on "get ready for baby" mode now. We are still not speedy in getting things done simply due to the ridiculous amount of time these appointments have been taking up, but progress is being made! This week we painted the baby's room (pictures to come!) and we ordered the baby's crib, which should arrive next week. Also this week as mentioned in my previous post, we had a baby shower! My co-workers at the hospital also threw me a shower before our shift started this week, which was super kind of them!

Now the most recent pictures of Baby Strat from our scan this week. The baby's hand was up near his/her face, which was up near the placenta, so getting a picture was difficult for the ultrasonographer. Later the baby was grabbing his/her foot with his/her hand. The baby was also doing lots of "belly breathing" exercises to get ready for life on the outside:
