36 weeks

Wow, as of today we can officially deliver at the birth center! Andy keeps saying "We're in the drop zone." And it might be just in time, I've been having tons of Braxton Hicks contractions today. We'll just have to wait and see though!
I think baby is probably well over 6 pounds by now, which is good. We are getting so excited to meet this little one! I think we have settled on a boy name finally, but are still undecided for a middle name. The girl name is all set. :) Ruby is so excited to tell everyone if it's a boy or a girl at the birth. I've been prepping the kids with their own birth videos.
At the birth center on Monday, the baby was a little transverse, like at an angle with the head toward my left hip, which is not great. But Megan was confident that we can get it head down, even if I were in labor. There's a lot of room for baby to move around in there because of my diastasis. I've been working on my positioning, like sitting properly, …

Mary Poppins, more gymnastics, and Ruby's spring program

We had a busy week! It included two late nights for the kids, so they were a little cranky toward the end of the week. But it was also fun. 
We finished the Whole30 on Tuesday, and started reintroducing foods on Wednesday. We started with legumes, which made us all gassy. But otherwise, there were no problems. Then on Friday we introduced grains. We were all looking forward to oatmeal! Our only things from that was a little more constipation, but that's it. :)
Ruby lost her second tooth yesterday, and I can't believe it, but the Tooth Fairy forgot to put her dollar in! We redeemed ourselves this morning, but seriously. Haha!  He loves dropping Ruby off at school because he gets to play with the toys sometimes!  Making a flower at school. :)  On Friday night Andy and I got to go out on a lovely date! Thanks to Patty and Del watching the kids. We were still doing the Whole30, so we found a nice Paleo restaurant to enjoy. :) It was pretty good! Especially the sweet and sour chic…

35 weeks

We hit the 35 week mark this week! We're getting down to the end for sure. We're all so excited to find out who is in there. We are still stuck on a boy name though, they are the hardest!
I'm feeling sooooo much better, I'm finally all the way healed from our nasty sickness. Thank the Lord. It was so miserable! It's nice to have a little energy back. I've been wanting to clean and get ready for the baby too, so nesting has kicked in.
Last weekend we got out a lot of the things for the baby and washed them. We still need to wash baby clothes and diapers and things, but we'll do that when my parents are up here in a few weeks. It will be very helpful to have them here!
The baby is over 5 pounds now, which I'm definitely feeling. My belly is getting really big and heavy. The kids have been great at picking things up from the floor for me though, so that definitely helps! Today we're working on a big to do list with things like finalizing our birth pl…

Still sick, gymnastics, and school

There's not a lot of photos this week because I was still pretty sick all week. What a miserable flu! Thankfully we're finally recovered now though, and neither of the boys got it. I'm also thankful that the baby isn't born yet, just like when Ruby had RSV.
We are just about done with our Whole30! The kids have both become really good eaters, and love sweet potatoes the best. They will even try other veggies. We had roasted cauliflower, and they both devoured it. I love it!!!  I sent them to play outside during a break in the rain... Ruby had a shovel and it was muddy. And so this happened. Poor Reid.  On Saturday, Andy and I headed in to birth class. It was fantastic.  Saturday night the kids wanted to spend their Valentine's Day money from Grandma Patty. So we headed to the toy store. Reid bought this grabber and loves it!   Might have been a mistake to let him have it in the car on the way to church though. Hahaha Ruby was still pretty snotty/coughing on Sunday…
