32w3d - Pictures!!

Alright, I am very late with my belly pictures and everything, I know. It was a busy weekend. First let me tell you what happened at school last week.... my class had a tour of the school they will be going to next year and when we got back to our building, I was telling them to go ahead and use the restroom, get drinks, and meet me back in the classroom. My principal came out and said she would take them down because I had a message in the office. So I go in and the secretary hands me a note that says the moms of one of my students called and that she sounded pretty upset. So I try and call her back and don't get an answer and decide to try again when my kids go to recess. I head back to my room and when I walk in, all my kids are lined up with about 6 of the parents and my principal and they yell: "Surprise!"

They were throwing me a surprise baby shower! Now get this: my class of 18 first graders had known about it, helped plan it, and been making projects for it for over 3 weeks and not a single one of them slipped and said anything to me! And that morning they had all brought presents in and either took them down to the office or left them tucked in their backpacks. I was so shocked that they got away with all that! Apparently every time I had a doctor's appointment and was gone they would have the sub work on things for shower. They made a class book with helpful baby advice (which is the cutest thing ever). They each made a burp cloth with their handprint and name on it. Oh, it was all just so wonderful! Here are some more pictures from the shower:














Saturday was my baby shower at my mom's house. It was a lot of fun. It was nice to see people that I haven't seen in a while. Some of them I haven't seen since I've been pregnant, or at least wasn't showing yet and so I got a couple of belly rubs accompanied by, "It really is true! You're having a baby!" Um, yes. :) Here are just a couple pictures from that shower:

Here are my belly pictures for 32 weeks:

Today K and I had a doctor's appointment and our growth ultrasound to see how big Kate is. You ready for this? My chunker is already 5 lbs 6 oz! She's in the 86th percentile. The doc said that she still only thinks she'll be 7-8 pounds at birth, though. So that is acceptable. :) Everything is looking great - she is still a she and we got a new crotch shot to prove it. She is head-down already (which could change, but I hope not). The large mass that has been pushing into my ribs these past couple days is her little butt. She's really filled out - she has very chubby cheeks. We got to see her in 3d a little bit, but she wasn't very cooperative. We did get to see her little hands, all curled up with her fingers moving. And she was putting her fingers in her mouth and moving her lips all around. She's a cutie! Here are the newest pics, including one of the 3d ones:
