Rowan's room is getting closer to being ready too. We went back to Rapid City a few weeks ago to visit some family. While we were there, my mom's friend Calene had a shower for us. It was amazing and a bit humbling to see how some people I hadn't seen for a very long time still wanted to come and celebrate this new chapter in our lives. We were given quite a few fun little things and cute clothes for Rowan too. Filling the nursery up with those things-especially all the clothes-made it seem a bit more real that he is going to be here soon.
I've continued to feel good...though each day is getting a bit more uncomfortable. Getting out of bed each morning is getting more and more awkward, though I'm still sleeping pretty well. My sleep in the morning is a bit restless, but not too disturbed. My feet haven't been too swollen, but some days are worse than others. (They are a bit bigger now...that's a little weird to me.) If I'm on my feet for too long though, they are pretty sore the next day or that evening. My wedding ring almost doesn't fit any more. Work is getting to be a bit uncomfortable too sitting at my desk for a full day. It's hard to find a way to sit for 8 or 9 hours that's comfortable. So yes...I feel good, but I have a feeling I'll be very ready to have this baby in a few weeks.

Our childbirth class is wrapping up soon. I feel like it's been a good class-spent a lot of time going over the different stages of labor and feelings women typically experience during each stage. It was good to learn a few different ways to cope with labor sensations. Ian's been great going through the classes with me...even when he has to do the guided group meditation. Not exactly Ian's favorite thing or style, but he puts up with it and doesn't even complain. Once the class is over, we'll be 37 weeks and 'officially' ready for him to make his debut.
So yes...we're getting close to being ready. I'm almost to the point of counting down days...but not quite there yet...that's another step down the road of readiness.
