We're in the 3rd trimester! Some resources say the 27th week starts it, and others say the 28th week... either way, we're in the final stretch now!!!
Heather took her 1 hour glucose screening test and passed perfectly!
We also scheduled our next and final ultrasound (a "growth scan") for week 32. We were hoping not to have any more scans but the Midwife highly suggested one, so we trust her.
My 30th birthday started with our first Prenatal Yoga class! There were about 8 women in the class most around the same gestation we are. I was nervous at first about going since I wasn't "pregnant" but everyone was very supportive and even "awww'd" at us when we went around and introduced ourselves! There was a women behind me that was 39+ weeks pregnant and she pretty much cried the entire time. I however did not cry, something I was worried about.
I've never been one to really celebrate my birthday in any big way, never really had birthday parties growing up, usually just some friends over for dinner and a slumber party, and as an adult it usually was just dinner out with Lee or family. But I thought this would be a great opportunity to celebrate!
Also its not very "Jewish" to have baby showers, so I thought this would be a great "loophole" to exploit! lol
We had about 35 people over to Lee's parents house Saturday night (the ultimate party house). My mother-in-law, Sister, and 2 good friends planned it all. It was amazing! Such cute decorations and fun activities! I couldn't have asked for anything better. We are so lucky to have such amazing and supportive friends and family. Everyone is so excited for us, and continuously thanked Heather...which I'm sure made her shy, but she deserves it!
