February is national cherry month, which I think is just perfect in light of Valentine’s Day!
The countdown has begun! The arrival of our little angel is approaching! I entered 9th month in the early February and I’m very excited about that. I’m slowly beginning preparations for maternity hospital. I’m getting ready for all the necessary things and I‘m trying not to forget something (Ahh, I’m so forgetful when I’m pregnant). I started attending Pregnancy school and I’m very satisfied. It is fun and interesting, and the most important thing is that it will help me most with correct breastfeeding.
