And of course have to update on baby boy - he is still cozy inside me and doesn't seem in any hurry to join us. I felt great all weekend so I am very grateful for that. We will continue to trust God's timing for his arrival and sleep/rest as much as I can!

We are slowly getting settled here and actually spent a couple nights this week in our new house (with a few things we sent early and borrowed furniture). We are working to get phone and internet set up and we feel so out of the loop now! We finally figured out the heat and hot water (they don't believe in thermastats here!). Last night we went next door to the pub and met some people from the village. We were invited to the village's cricket match this afternoon so we headed down there to try to learn the game. It is very confusing. Hubby eventually wants to get on the team! A little boy came up to him and tried to teach him cricket but it is confusing so hubby ended up teaching him baseball!
Not much to report in baby news. We actually have the car seat now, the pack-n-play is set up and the baby clothes are washed so I guess we are as ready as we can be. Hubby keeps telling me I need to pack my bag but I just can't do that yet. I got checked at my last appointment on Thursday and was not too far along so I'm thinking it could still be a while. I am pretty uncomfortable by the end of the day but overall I'm doing great and can't complain.

Of course there is baby news too. We were able to get into a birthing class on Monday morning so it will be nice to get that done before he arrives. I had an exciting appointment yesterday. While the doctor was listening for the heartbeat he thought he heard his heartrate lowering so he wanted to monitor it for a while. So I went up to the labor and delivery room and got hooked up to everything while he monitored. Everything looked good though and I was really happy that he was extra cautious with me. We got another sonogram and everything looked good there too. He was guessing the baby is already weighing 6 1/2 pounds but wouldn't give me an idea when he would make his arrival. While I was laying there hooked up to everything it made it seem so much more real to us. Are we really ready for this?? Only 3 weeks till the due date!!
