Week 35 Summary: “I feel huge”

with 3 comments

Quotes from Mrs Bean:

“Oh my god, we have 29 days left.  Crazy!”

The midwife is coming tomorrow to the house – our first (scheduled) home visit!  We’re in the middle of childbirth classes with her, which has included birth art, watching videos, and learning about the signs of labour.  This week, we’re going to learn about what we can do if the midwife is late getting here (eeks!)

The bean likes to dance.  No, wait, the bean LOVES to dance!  Mrs Bean doesn’t love it as much as the bean…it’s uncomfortable, and the bean’s favorite spot is a painful part of her ribs.

Some photos of the baby’s room as it looks now:

We got the glider from the big box store – it’s very comfy, but sort of ugly.  It’s covered with a blanket that Mrs Bean made.  The tripp trapp chair on the left is a hand me down, as is the vibrating chair on the right.  Behind the curtain, you can see our printer – it’s wondering what’s going on, and where it’ll go when the baby gets here.

The crib, and a bouncy ball (yoga ball).  Thank you to our lovely friends who gave us the various tidbits you see in the picture.

The dresser is stocked with clothes and some diapers.  Some of the clothes are from Mrs Bean’s childhood, much of it is from Mrs Bean’s mom, and we have some that were shower gifts.  We also stocked up on itsy bitsy clothing at the MamaCents sale a few weeks ago.

The two giant ziplock bags in front contain supplies for the birth – towels, onesies, etc.

A close-up of the stuff on the shelf – this kid will have lots of blankets!!

  1. Looks great! I love the frog yoga ball. The yoga ball was our best friend those first few weeks 🙂

  2. Looking good! Any day now… We love our glider – but it makes you fall asleep once you start gliding. Watch out for headspace above the changing table. It looks a little close…

  3. Cousin – yes, the shelf is a little low, we’ll move it if we need to…I have a feeling that if anybody’s going to their head, it’ll be me…

    Strawberry – I’m looking forward to using the yoga ball!
