36 Weeks

What a busy week! I think I over did it a little as now I am sick! Only affecting my head not my whole body thank goodness, but a few days off work should fix that and then I only have a few to go!

On Saturday I had my Baby shower, with a few surprise guests! My Mum and little sister Bee surprised me by arriving at lunch time on Saturday just in time to finish preparing for the shower. I had a feeling a few weeks ago that Bee might be coming, but then she stopped talking about it so I didn't think she would, but I didn't think Mum would as she will be back visiting again in just two weeks. I have since found out that a LOT of people knew they were coming and all of them managed to keep the secret. Thank you! It was a wonderful surprise and I was super pleased I got to share the day with both my sisters and mum!

There were also about 20 guests, mostly from work, who tell me they all had a good time. We played silly games and had a good laugh and Russell got super spoilt. Mum bought a menagerie of toys with her and Bee bought some cute clothes, so the nursery is full!

Later that night...Look how clever I am! and tired and sick I look!

Look what else Bee did...she is the most un-crafty of us all but I think she did a great job! This will be the start of Russell's baby book!

Then on Sunday I had a Breast feeding course run by the ABA. I took Cee with me and I think it opened her eyes a bit! There were a few 'Gross, really?!?!' comments made, especially about the 'poo chart' they had which she brought home to show DH! I haven't finished reading the book that come with the course but I feel confident in my ability to breastfeed so that was positive.

Then on Monday I was off work sick! Just rested around the house and watched my Mum and sister churn out 5 pairs of PJ bottoms for her...after they raided my fabric and ribbon stash and a quick trip to Spotlight.

Then on Tuesday, after saying good bye to all of our visitors, we had our last Ante-natal class. It focused on settling and soothing a crying baby and what to 'do' with it once we are home. It was very informative and helpful, lets hope I can remember some of it when the time comes! I can't wait til we bring our own baby home!

So Russell had better turn out to be a boy don't you think? Most of the pressies look more 'boyish'!

Hope you're feeling much better now.
