Baby Shower Fun

Saturday was the long awaited Baby Shower. Look at this sign, couldn't miss the place if you tried. Thank you everyone that came. We greatly appreciate all the gifts and the money that was donated to our daycare/diaper fund :) Now to put stuff together and get the nursey all finished, after all it's getting time to be ready for the new arrival!

It was hard to get photos of the actual event since I was involved in all the games and such, but I'm told there were photos taken, I will try to get them and put some up. In the mean time, look at the cute cheese tray I got from work. Cheddar ducks were tasty :)

32 weeks

It's a milestone. Apparently now if the baby comes early it's not a big deal and it's all set to survive outside the womb. Good to know.
Had our weekly checkup with the Dr today. Everything looks on track.
The nurse said she thinks we are having a boy because it wouldn't cooperate with getting it's heartrate checked again. so that's 2 times now it's moved away from the dopplar. hehe

Baby shower presents are coming in the mail. It's exciting to have presents in the house. I'm not opening them, but I want to :) Official shower is on Saturday and I am very excited. I ordered some cheese and sausage trays from my company and they asked if I wanted them decorated for the shower. I was like sure! No clue how they decorate cheese, so will just have to wait and see what they look like now. I"m told for graduation trays they make little diplomas and hats out of cheese, so who knows what we will get!

And I'm off to Chicago for a work conference for the next few days. I don't really want to drive down there, but hey who can say no to a free conference and a classy hotel room on the Maginficent Mile? Thank you company, I will try and max out my daily food allowance and try to be comfortable at my over $200 a night hotel room.

60ish Days and Counting

 So Last week ended nicely. My coworkers surprised me with a baby shower, which was very nice and totally unexpected.
Pizza, salad, of course Cheese and Sausage Trays and then these super cute cupcakes with sucker handles. (they were sooo tasty) I ate way too much food and I'm sure it all went to the baby, so lets see how big we can make it!

Let's not forget the great presents. The Homemade quilt, the diaper genie, lots of cute outfits and toys just to name a few. We had to really condense down the bags to get them to fit in my car.
I did find it odd that all the clothing was for 6 month old babies so I asked why, because I guess I was expecting a bunch of newborn clothing. No one here thinks I'm going to have a baby that fits into new born clothing. Hahahaha, that's what I get for asking.

And the belly for the start of the week. Still just as large as ever. I do find I have a little waddle now and am getting myself stuck when I sit on the floor. I kinda feel like a turtle trying to get up by myself. Luckly most of the time Levi is there to pull me up.

Had another visit with the chiropractor who said I'm all nicely aligned now. He wants to check it out towards the end of Sept just to double check before the baby comes, but it looks good. Also I was convinced by my mother that I was developing a hump on my back, the chiropractor said he perfers to deal with real problems instead of imaginary concerns so to tell my mother she's crazy (ok, he totally did not say that, but I think he would have if he wasn't so professional)

What else happened? Oh I was advised that it is inproper and basically insulting to open baby presents that come in the mail before the shower, so I will no longer be doing that. So anyone that sends anything, it will sit unopened in a pile to be opened with witnesses at the appropriate time. Sorry if I insulted anyone, I like opening stuff :) It won't happen again, probably...

Scheduling my Life away

Back form my biweekly Dr appointment. Scheduled the rest of my appointments. I'm now all booked up until October 14th. It seems like there is something like every week. That's probably because starting in September I go every week :)
I talked the Dr into only one more Ultrasound to check the size of the baby. She wanted to do 2 more, but really, I think I've had enough of them. Don't want to turn our baby into some 3 armed creature just to double check the size. So the LAST ultrasound is scheduled for 9/15. I'm sure it will show a perfectly healthy, normal sized little squash.
Presents are starting to come in the mail for the baby shower. I really like coming home from work and seeing boxes sitting out in front of our door. Yay to presents!!! I couldn't decide if I was allowed to open them before the shower or if we should wait, so we just opened them. hehehe

That's it for this week. Recovering from Ottaplosia where I managed to get a 3rd degree sunburn on my leg. Blast driving in a car without doors. I forgot that you then need to put sunblock on when driving!

30 weeks

This week so far has been eventful.

Went and got my updated drivers license. I am now good for like 8 years. I'm glad they sent me a reminder, I totally never would have noticed it expired. however, I think that was my 1st bad photo. Typically I've been fine with my license photos, this one not so much.
I also fully appreciated the lady telling me I looked huge and her daughter was due in a week and didn't look as big. Really? Well thanks for letting me know.

Yesterday I made my first ever visit to a Chiropractor. I was a bit nervous and didn't know what to expect. Turns out it wasn't too bad. Having some random person pop stuff around in your neck and upper back is weird though.

We also had our last craft fair before the baby comes over the weekend. It was hot and muggy and I think I looked miserable and scared people away. I just gave up and moved my chair to under the trees where there was some breeze and chilled there the rest of the day. I'm glad that's the last one for a while.
