36 Week Belly Shot and an unexpected hospital visit

Here is my belly shot for 36W5D...I am pretty sure he has dropped as the shape of my belly has changed and I can breathe and eat a little bit easier!  

This past week has been a hard one... Seana was hit with appendicitis and had to have an appendectomy on Friday.  She made it through the surgery with flying colors but because her appendix had a small perforation and bacteria had to be flushed out of her abdomen her hospital stay was longer than a normal stay for this type of surgery.  She ended up having to stay 3 nights... which was 2 nights too many in our book but she needed the medical attention so she was a champ and made it through!  I didn't get to visit with her as much as I would have liked.  We decided to not take Maggie to the hospital to avoid all the germs.. the last thing we needed was a sick toddler to top everything off.  Which meant finding people to watch Maggie when I could visit, thankfully I have so many great friends here in Connecticut willing to help.  I didn't want to overburden anyone so I only went once in the morning and once in the evening most of her stay.  Sunday she only got one visit.

I cannot tell you how many times I was asked when I was due during my many excursions to the hospital... apparently I am so evidently pregnant that the taboo of asking a woman about being pregnant no longer applies.  I am sure it was quite the sight as I helped Seana to the car... Actually I know it was as someone actually said to Seana "You should be helping her."

It was such a blessing to her home Monday afternoon, and Monday evening was when we got these photos taken.

It is crazy to think that in less than 3 weeks he will be here!  We are working hard at getting
