Countdown to Kate

11 weeks and 4 days to our due date! We went to the doctor today and everything is still going smoothly. Kate is in position (head down, booty up)....hopefully, she'll stay that way for the remainder of the pregnancy. She likes to show off by moving and wiggling every time the doctor gets ready to listen her heartbeat. My glucose tolerance test was today, so I had the pleasure of drinking some nasty orange sugar drink (Kate showed her appreciation for a good sugar high by kicking and playing more than normal!) and then having my blood drawn through a needle the size of a straw (okay....that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it was big!)! Our appointments are now every 2 weeks, instead of every 4 it's really hitting me how close the big day is!

We've made it back to Babies r Us twice since the last update (much to Chris's delight) and we've gotten Kate's car seat, stroller, and bedding. All we need is a little wall decor and we're good to go! And, thanks to my sisters-in-law and my mother, Kate's closet is filling up quickly!

I only have a day and a half of school left, but the first few weeks of summer are already busy with inservice, vacation bible school, more doctor's appointments, and a prenatal massage (happy birthday to me from Chris!)!

Stay tuned for more news as we continue our countdown to Kate!
