37 Weeks

Today was a big day for us as we had our first and only ultrasound this pregnancy and dropped off birthing and baby supplies at the birth house. Only three weeks left! Trudy came a week early and in a way I'm hoping her brother or sister follows suit. Then again, life with a newborn isn't exactly a bed of roses so many he or she can stay put a little longer.

We're thankful for a healthy, head-down baby (Trudy was breach and had to be turned via external version before birth) and I'm thankful the gender is still a surprise. We had to turn our heads at one point during the ultrasound to keep it a surprise.

The birth house is lovely and I'm looking forward to having a peaceful place to deliver. Dave is getting quite handy with the camera, don't you think?

I'd like to get some pictures in these exact poses with an actual baby replacing the belly.

What do canning jars have to do with babies? Nothing, but isn't it cool looking? I spend too much time on Pinterest. I guess my tummy is a "ball" right now to there's some correlation. 
Birth with hope!
