I love being a teacher. If you know me well, you know that I get frustrated with students and the nuiances of my job, but I really do love teaching, especially when it comes to holiday breaks! This week, I am off for Thanksgiving break, and I am thankful for each and every day I don't have to wake up at 5 am and go to work. It has helped me get quite bit accomplished.
Yesterday, I had my monthly check-up with my OB-Gyn, Dr. Sowa. Everything looks and sounds good and nothing new to report. Starting Monday, I have nightly homework. I get to count how long it takes for our little girl to kick me 10 times. I can't say I mind this homework though, because feeling our little one kicks is probably one of the few things about being pregnant that I actually like. :-)
Today, Tim, his parents, and I went to my 28 week ultrasound appointment. It was so fun to see how much our little girl has grown since her 18 week ultrasound. We got some 4D pictures and wow, they are so defined!! You can see everything. Our perintologist says everything looks good, so two days of good news!
Here is one of the ultrasound pictures:
I am also lucky that I got to spend someof my week with my in-laws, Carolyn & Dennis. They both took off the week to visit Tim, Colleen, and I and we have gotten to spend a lot of quality time together. Little did they know, however, that when they came to my house that I would have some "projects" for them. Dennis is very handy (which Tim didn't really get from his father), so we asked if he could assemble our baby's furniture for us. We also bought a new dresser from Ikea that Dennis assembled. What a guy! He didn't end up doing it all alone, and below I have pictures of Tim's mom, sister, and dad all assembling our furniture. Thanks Dennis, Carol, & Colleen!!
And the finished products:
The baby's crib
The baby's dresser (which is the same color as the crib even though it looks lighter)
Our new dresser
Wow, what a busy week!!
