31 Weeks, Getting Ready

We are now at the 31 week mark. I finally gave in and bought a pregnancy pillow – I was starting to have trouble sleeping so for Valentine’s Nathan got me a body pillow that kind of snakes around your body and provides support to your neck, belly, and back. It is wonderful! Nathan and I worked on Aiden’s room today as well as on cleaning the rest of the house. We don’t want to welcome Aiden home to a pig pen so we scrubbed the floors and so forth. Now we have to work on keeping things clean which is another problem altogether. Nathan put together the wonderful glider chair that Mom & Dad Elfrink bought us. It is super comfortable and will be great for nursing the baby. Thanks Mom & Dad!!! Nathan also tried out the Baby Bjorn baby carrier and used  Chloe as a stand-in for Aiden. I can just picture him carrying Aiden around, can’t you? What a cute dad he will be! :)

A Peek at Aiden

Nathan and I decided to take advantage of the 4D ultrasound machine over in the maternal-fetal medicine office on Friday. We wanted to see if Aiden looks any different now that he is 31 weeks. Well, you can tell that he doesn’t have quite as much room in the womb as he did 10 weeks ago. Plus he was being a bit shy – he kept putting his arm over his eyes or sucking on his arm, obscuring part of his face. But he sure has more baby fat than he did at 21weeks! While we can’t really tell which parent or relative he favors (although I’m thinking Nathan), we can see that he is a precious little baby that is getting bigger each day… Here are a few of the shots we did get… Isn’t he cute? We are getting so excited to meet him!
