Baby Shower Pictures!

So I just copied this right off my cousin's wife's blog. It's not going to be very interesting just a bunch of pictures for me to remember this day with...

All the beautiful gifts.

This beautiful thing is a blessing gown. My grandma made it from left over pieces of my wedding dress.

My cousin's wife & I. The only picture I got with someone. Good thing she decided to bring a camera, no one else but me were prepared and no one would take my camera... jerks...

36 weeks!!

How far along? 36 Weeks-- 9 months!!

Baby's size and stats? Our baby is still packing on the pounds — at the rate of about an ounce a day! Info taken from

Gain? Total as of Monday was 23 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Been wearing my maternity pants A LOT this week.

Sleep? Can't seem to sleep anymore. Pretty uncomfortable.

Foods I am loving? Water. Apples. Scones & honey butter.

Foods I am hating? Meat & greasy stuff, same as always.

Best moment this week? Getting all the baby shower stuff put away, packing our hospital bags, putting her car seat in the car.

Movement? Still a wiggle worm, though today she isn't as wiggly.

1. Very excited to meet her!!
2. Nervous/anxious. I'm sure you can imagine why.
3. Contractions, they're getting worse, not better.
4. Pressure.
5.Nausea still.

Gender? A GIRL!!!

What I'm looking forward to? My appointment on Monday. Being off bed rest on the 19th, 7 more days.

Milestones: Making it to 9 months! Holding her in an extra 6 weeks.

Giveaway Info & Dr's Appt

Morning! Before I get into the dr's appointment info, just wanted to tell you about ANOTHER awesome giveaway... this time you can check it out here. It's a bag by Charm Designs, and they are all beautiful!!

So all weekend starting early Saturday I'd been having some real bad contractions, ick! These lasted up through Monday, and even had a few at the my appointment, well they decided since I'd been having them constantly still to go ahead and check...

Dr: What did the hospital tell you, you were dilated to?
Me: Nothing.
Dr: Nothing? Well you're definitely not nothing.
Me: just wondering to self what that means to lost to ask
Dr: WELL, lay back let's check the heart beat... Oh you're having one now....
Me: Yup.
Dr: It's from me checking you....
Me: Ummm... ya I don't want to tell you but I've been having them all day...
Dr: Well try to keep her in till the 19th, stay down till then. Though she is past the danger part, before if she came we would be worried, now there wouldn't be those worries. You'll need to know these 5 things and if any of these things happen come into the hospital or call us.
1. bleeding
2. water breaks
3. contractions 5 minutes apart
4. baby not moving...

** not sure if he actually said a 5th one or not I can't remember**
I also start to see him every week now. Meaning I get checked again Monday. Which means Monday will be another very long painful day. I had contractions and cramping so bad all day, I wanted to cry. Totally worth it, just wondering how much has changed at the next appt.

Quick little post.

I'll have to post about my 35 Week Dr's appointment soon. But for now I'm just letting you know that Shannon over at Eat, Pray, Love....LIVE! is hosting a giveaway for a "30 day supply of the supplement of their choice" from I'm thinking I'd want to try out the New Chapter Super Critical Holy Basil (uplift, calming, and balance) supplement... sounds great to me... but the others sound good too! You should check her blog out if you haven't!

35 Weeks!

**I will be posting pictures later, probably tomorrow with the baby shower post**

How far along? 35 Weeks!! This is my last week being 8 months!!

Baby's size and stats? Our baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that she's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds! Info taken from

Gain? Will Find out on Monday! At my 35w2d check-up! But it had been 22lbs total so far.

Maternity clothes? Really depends though on days where it isn't freezing freakin' cold I love to wear dresses and leggings.

Sleep? Sleep is getting better, I get up once to go pee now which is great, though I do wake up every time I have to turn.

Foods I am loving? Apples!

Foods I am hating? Same as always.

Best moment this week? I'm hoping that will be today at the baby shower!!

Movement? Guess I'll post my story here, I'm pretty sure she has dropped. Actually I know she has. Sunday night I was turning and as always had a really bad pain in the pelvic area and such, I was waiting for my hip to pop as it normal does, but this time there was a different pop, it was in that pelvic area. The pain was then gone, and when I woke up miss Abigail and her home have definitely shifted down quite a bit. Oh and she's always a wiggle worm, especially if her puppy is laying on my tummy. She knows it's him, and she knows when it's daddy.

Symptoms/Emotions? 1. Emotional wreck comes to mind.
2. Peeing a lot.
3. Pain down there.
4. Nausea.
5. We'll call them the "getting to the end jitters".
6. Contractions.

Gender? A GIRL

What I'm looking forward to?Maybe my shower today. We'll see how that goes. My appt on Monday.

Milestones:Making it to 35 weeks, on Tuesday that will be 5 yes FIVE whole weeks that I've kept her in since the L&D experience. It's been a hard 5 weeks but I'm definitely glad we've made it this far!
