Another week gone by.....

I am getting soooooo impatient. I can't believe that I am only at the end of my 33rd week and I am more than ready to have this baby!!!! I have had a slight cold this whole week that has been keeping me (and Matt ) up throughout the night. This is the first time that I actually have to admit I have been snoring like crazy - sorry Matt!!!
I have been told by a few people this week that the baby looks as if it has dropped a bit. It certainly feels that way! My belly is now resting on my lap when I sit down!! It is increasingly difficult to bend over and I have to pee every hour it seems. Ahh, the joys of pregnancy that I was looking forward to :-)
Our labor and delivery class went well this week. We went over several positions for labor and I am really looking forward to trying the towel trick (I am told they do this at GVH). Apparently, if someone holds one end of a towel and the laboring mother pulls on the other end of it she is effectively pushing her baby out without actually having to push. The action requires the use of the stomach muscles.....I'd rather do this the whole time instead of pushing :-)
I think we are planning on packing our hospital bags this weekend. I know it's rather early but with how I have been feeling, you just never know. I am still hoping for Mid-May. Matt seems to think that May 18th will be the big day. That is fine with me!!! I really want to be able to make it to Fran and Amy's wedding....and I'd rather be there without a watermelon in my belly!!
Hope all is well with everyone!! Just to let you know...I plan on posting some pics of the nursery this weekend and possibly some of my growing belly - if you haven't seen me in a while you will be amazed at the growth that I have experienced! Take care!!!!
