33 weeks

Okay so that picture is actually from last week at 32 weeks. We went to PA to visit my family and have our baby shower there. We had so much fun! We arrived Friday night and had dinner with my parents. Todd's mom came out for the shower so she joined us. After dinner, we hung out for a while and then went to my grandparents' house, where Todd's mom was staying for the weekend. We hung out with the grandparents for a while and then came back and went to bed. It was so hot there! I think it was about 90 degrees and humid! On Saturday, we went thrift store shopping a little then picked up Todd's mom and my sister and went shopping at Once Upon a Child. We got lots of cute baby clothes. Then we met Todd and my dad at Five Guys and had lunch. The boys had been out running a bunch of errands all day and talking about books and history. After lunch, we all went to visit my great grandmother at the nursing home. She has Alzheimer's disease but seemed to be having a pretty good day. She was able to remember all of us. However, after about 45 minutes, she got distracted and wandered off so we decided to leave. We had dinner with my grandparents, Aunt Sue, Uncle Art, and cousin Andrew that night. After dinner we headed to my sister's house to have a bonfire and marshmallow roast. Unfortunately, it was pretty humid and we had trouble getting the fire started. Then it started raining. We were pretty tired after a long day, so we headed home to bed.

Sunday was our baby shower. Aunt Sue made all the food and my mom used her cafe for the shower.

 The cake. Created by my Aunt Rochelle and Aunt Susie. It was as delicious as it was adorable.
This is my friend Emily. We've been friends since we were 12. She is pregnant with her 3rd baby and is due about 3 weeks after me.

The baby shower was a lot of fun! My sister planned a few fun games including one where you had to taste baby food and figure out what flavor it was. It was so gross! There was also Baby Word Scramble, Guess the Number of Jelly Beans in the Bottle, and a raffle for door prizes. All the decorations were really cute and the food was delicious. We received lots of gifts too. Everyone was so generous and we are almost all set for the baby now.

I had an ultrasound this past Thursday at 32 weeks 5 days. Baby is measuring right on schedule and weighs about 4 pounds. His heart rate was 137 bpm and he is still head down. The tech said that my high risk Dr wanted one more cervix check so she did it and my cervix is still very long at over 4cm. I've been having some swelling in my ankles and feet since Monday so they checked my blood pressure. It was normal at 108/64 so the dr said to just drink lots of water and put my feet up whenever I can.

I am feeling pretty good, just soreness from stretching and hip pain. I have to pee all the time, which is kind of annoying.  Baby is kicking like a crazy person. He always kicks a lot right after I eat, but really he is just a kicking machine.

Upcoming events:

6/7- Dr. S. 34 week appt
6/28- 36 week growth scan and Non-stress Test

I will have another Dr. S. appt in there somewhere but it isn't schedule yet. It will probably be on the 21st though.

Only 7 weeks to go!
