Busy Busy!

We've had something going on every weekend in October so far. Alan's parents came for a visit the first weekend, and while I had a day to myself when they went to NYC, and was forced to work that Sunday, it was still pretty busy. Last weekend, we went to Rochester, NY, as a fall foliage/anniversary, babymoon trip. We figured so it's so much further north than us, the leaves would be in full color up there. Yeah, not so much. Oh well, we still had a really nice time exploring the city, well as much exploring as I can do 7 months pregnant!

There was a fall festival going on along the river that weekend, so we partook in some of that. The river actually has four waterfalls that are in the city, and while two of them are more like rapids, the other two are about 100' high. Very cool.


This is High Falls, it was originally a flour mill district and you can explore the ruins that are right next to the falls.
The weekend was filled with me doing things Alan didn't want me to do, such as hiking down the trail to a bottom of a gorge to see Lower Falls:

And, climbing to the top of a lighthouse overlooking Lake Ontario:


Just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean I'm an invalid, as I like to tell Alan!

Yesterday was our childbirth class. A lot of stuff she talked about I already knew, mostly because of reading the pregnant community on LJ. But, it was really nice to see where I will be giving birth and learning some of the hospital's procedures. A good thing I learned is that I won't have a roommate post partum. Yay! I was thinking I would because the pre-registration paperwork only gave you the option of a double room. I'm SO glad that that's not the case. I had a roommate for one of my stays for my gallbladder, and she was ghetto as heck and SUPER annoying. It's so awesome that I don't have to deal with anyone else but who I want in the room.

One thing I found out that I absolutely abhor is that if I would wind up with a c-section, I don't get to hold the baby immediately. They hold him up, then take him to the nursery while I sit in recovery for up to TWO hours. I wouldn't get to see him again until I was in a post partum room. Uhm, yeah. NOT AN OPTION!!!!!! If they want to hear me scream bloody murder to see my child, then they can put him in the nursery. Finding this out has just strengthened my resolve that I will NOT have a c-section. No matter what. I'd rather risk giving birth at home with no one but Alan and myself here than that.

Anyways, next Sunday is our actual anniversary. We don't really have anything planned for the weekend, we're going to do some fall stuff. Pick out pumpkins, go through a corn maze and go on a night time hayride. I love fall, so I'm very excited.

I can't believe it's been a year already since I married the love of my life. This time last year I was trying to remain calm at the thought that I would be married in less than a week. It seriously seems like yesterday.
