The final month!

We have reached the last month of pregnancy! Cade and I talk about how fast this time has gone by. Now we are getting more people saying I'm about to "pop"..not sure how I really feel about that because I'm all baby but still have 4 weeks to gain.
Peyton's movement have NOT slowed down, she definitely does not get this from me as I did not move much when my mom was pregnant with me. I'm hot, ALL the time I only wish I could wear shorts to work. I never thought I would see this day come where I am fanning myself everywhere.
Our appointments are weekly now to see our progression. This past week, we had our last ultrasound to see what Peyton's position is and how big she has grown. She is doing so well, her head is down and she is 5 lbs 8 oz (77th percentile). The doctor said she would probably gain about 1 more pound so she is not going to be 8 or 9 lbs, which is what I feel like she is.

Saturday was our childbirth class at Memorial Hermann. It was great that we went so we knew the different stages of contractions and techniques to help elevate the pain. Afterwards we went to go see What to Expect When Expecting because we were in a baby mood. It was a really funny movie!

On Wednesday a tree fell on our house and did some pretty good damage to the roof. We are supposed to have it fixed by the time she gets here but we are on her schedule. It was something we did not need right now but life sometimes does that.

Besides the lack of sleep and it taking longer to get up off the couch, Peyton has made this pregnancy go very well. I could not complain. Now we wait for her arrival.
