So I found out why I look so large. At my 37 week appointment today, my doctor told me that my stomach is measuring 40 weeks! No wonder! So she expects the baby to be pretty healthy and a little on the bigger side. So she gave me a few pointers on how to hurry up the progression of labor and I am hoping the baby will come early, so she doesn't totally tear me apart or force me to have a c-section!

37 Weeks

So I guess my blog has become centered around my pregnancy, thats pretty much all thats been going on in my life besides school. So here's another belly pic. 37 weeks, and wow its crazy to think she can come any time now! I can't wait! The other day someone told me I looked like I was "ready." This is not the response I usually get, although I do look pretty large, if you will. I feel good, but I think sometimes on the outside I don't look as good as I feel on the inside which is too bad for me I guess. But anyway, I don't want to scare anyone with a full body shot...maybe some other time! ;)

Baby Shower

Thanks to my friend Sheila and the assistance of Crystal, I had such a fun and tasty baby shower this past friday. The theme was candy. The decorations were so cute, the games were fun and I enjoyed all the food. Thanks to everyone for all the cute and fun things for the baby and also for coming and joining in on the fun! Here are a few shots from the night.

(I'm bored so I thought I would share a few things I've been doing.)
So I think we are already in the fourth week of school and it is flying by just as fast as I thought. Not to mention one of my favorite things is this friday, a presentation, featuring yours truly! Yay, I just love those! I always dread doing them but it always feels so good to be done, so I wish I could just get it over with already and enjoy the sweet feeling of relief. I have a few other group assignments which are nice, you always get to share the load on those!
I have been practicing on our Wii, now that we have two remotes Josh pretty much beats me at everything. I try and act like I don't care, but he gloats and has really poor sprotsmanship! (He calls it our "family home evening" I guess there's always room for improvement.)
I can't wait for all the new shows to start! Although I have been enjoying Ellen of course.
Also my friend Sheila is throwing me a baby shower next friday at my apartment. I have invites to hand out, but if I miss someone, your welcome to come over and join in on the fun. You can check out her blog for the details!
And I think we finally have everything for the baby, last weekend we made another Wal Mart run and purchased a stroller and carseat, so I think she is set. I guess all we have to do is pack the hospital bag and wait for her to be ready! Its weird to think she will be here hopefully in less than five weeks!

34 Weeks

So besides being puffy and feeling like Shrek, my doctors appointment went well today. My weight was much better and my doctor felt as though the baby moved into the right position, so that was a relief! Only six more weeks to go and hopefully she will be here, healthy and happy. (I would post an updated picture, but my camera has no batteries, and our laptop has been acting funny, maybe next time.)
