Boy did I get a surprise on Saturday.
I had a meeting with my friend Kristina who runs the junior church program and she will be taking over the nursery program while I'm out. So I head over to her house at 4:30 kinda wondering why we are actually having this meeting but I'm getting out of the house so whatever. So Kristina answers the door and I walk in to everyone yelling SURPRISE!!!
Yes I got surprised with a baby shower!
I looked around and started yelling back at them "You Suck, I'm not ready"(I was actually thinking of how the photos were going to turn out for the scrapbook page. sick I know). Here I was, no makeup, in glasses, comfy t-shirt, hair not brushed, but at least I brushed my teeth before I left. Defintely not looking my best at all.
About 8 people showed up for a diaper and wipe shower, we had great Mexican food and had a great time lounging around the pool and having cake and ice cream. I received about 8 packages of size 1 diapers and 2 size 2's, a few containers of wipes and assorted gifts in between. Such a complete surprise but I was very appreciatve of everybody who was there.
There has been a lot going on this week. Starting on Sunday I began to have some contractions, about 10-15 minutes apart for two hours. Of course it was all my fault to begin with as at a dessert auction at church I started to jump up and down during the sale over a Mississippi Mud cake. Hey it's chocolate and really good. But otherwise no more contractions that I know of.
Had a doctors appointment on Wednesday. Dr. Gardner told me I'm to the point that if I go into labor that they wouldn't stop it. Okay, I'm sooo not ready. The crib is not made and the bag is not packed. I have also have been having lots of pain around my ribs and the doctor suggested that I get a belly band to help support my stomach, which has helped to some degree, but I can't sit up straight or walk very far without holding the top of my stomach to ease the pain.
Yesterday mom and I went up to IKEA and I bought the crib bedding and assorted items that I just had to have. I'll take a picture of the bed after I wash and get it put together. Tonight or tomorrow I'm going to wash the baby clothes and pack my bag. Tuesday I will turn 34weeks.
So today I have a sonogram which I'm bringing the kids to so that they can see baby and then this afternoon I will have my first NST or non stress test. This is where they monitor the baby's heartbeat and movement for about an hour. This I will have to do twice a week until delivery.
Okay if you look at the picture closely you will see I just took it while I was blogging. I will have Rob take a better picture later but this is just to give you an idea of how big I am right now. I'm off to the doctors Iwill see you later.
