Birthing Class

I just wanted to post a few cute pictures of mine and Heath's good friends that took the birthing class with us this weekend.

Amanda is first and she is due two weeks BEFORE me. 2nd is me. 3rd is Sunni. She is due 2 weeks AFTER me. So you can imagine how much fun we are having together!

Here's the boys.
Curt is first...he is Amanda's husband, then Heath, 3rd Xavier, Sunni's husband. Our husbands were very funny and entertaining through our birthing class. The lady who taught our class said she has never had a group of friends take her class before and she has been teaching for 6 years. She thought we had planned it this way! :-) The class was definitely very intersting! My favorite part was the tour of the hospital. It is so nice and everyone has been so wonderful! We feel very good about having our baby at Baylor Grapevine. My least favorite part about class: the video! :-)

We have one more birthing class next Saturday!

We are getting a sonogram on Tuesday, so I will definitely be updating next week.

Thanks guys!

30 Weeks

30 Weeks!!!

We hope that everyone had a great Christmas!! We had a wonderful time with all of our families! Heath's mom gave our little girl some really great presents. Those blankets are amazingly soft!!

And my parents, my sister Michelle and her husband Bradley, and my grandma all chipped in and got us a video camera!! We were very surpised! We will have great fun with that after she is born.

I now have only 10 weeks left, if you can believe that! I am 75% of the way there! She weighs about 3 pounds now and is about 16 inches long. The average baby when born is 7 pounds, 20 inches long. So she definitely has some weight to put on, but not too many more inches. I'm still feeling really good. My blood pressure was down a little more at our last appointment. We are so thankful for that! I love feeling her move more and more everyday.

Heath and I start our birthing and parenting classes in the next week and a half. I'm so excited because we get to go through the classes with some good friends that are due around the same time we are, Curt and Amanda Jones, and Xavier and Sunni Lazo. It will be really fun (and probably really funny with these boys) to go through the classes together. I'm a little nervous about the birthing classes though. Up to this point, I've tried to avoid thinking about that part as much as possible.

Well, I will continue to keep you updated these last few weeks that we've got! I hope to see all of you really really soon!
