Remember the time….

30 Mar

I can’t even type that headline without singing the Michael Jackson song in my head…but I digress…

With 5 weeks to go before my due date, I have been reminiscing about what it was like when I was first pregnant and hoping and praying and counting the seconds until I showed a teeny, tiny baby bump. Now that I’m exhausted at the end of the day from carrying around the extra weight, retaining water in my ankles and feet (super sexy BTW), and getting kicked in the ribs at least a dozen times a day, I stare longingly at my flat belly at just 8 weeks preggo.

Isn’t it nuts that at the time all I could think about was how I wish I’d lost a few more pounds before I started packing them on?
Now I just can’t wait to bend over and tie my shoes, walk up a flight of stairs without panting and having my legs go numb, and of course, hold a sweet chubby babe in my arms.

I’ll get back to that, right!? right!!?

Love this skirt! And I can’t even wear it….

Piece one for the nursery arrived today from my friend and former co-worker Angie. She made the crib skirt out of the Amy Butler fabric that I talked about forever ago and ordered not that long ago – and Ryan and I both LOVE IT!

Baby Shower @ Erin’s

30 Mar

Some of my fabulous friends hosted my baby shower on Saturday morning and I had such a great time! I saw friend I hadn’t seen in WAY too long, and had all of my favorite people under one roof (minus a few – *enter sad face).

And let me tell you, Baby E made out pretty well! I’m not sure what to do with some of the things I got, how they work, when the baby will need them, but the baby registry list on Babies R Us told me I’d need them. I did get some incredibly thoughtful gifts, some really beautiful handmade things and lots of snuggly blankets and outfits the peanut will adore. Pictures to come.

I know this week I’m hitting 35 weeks, but I’m just getting around to posting last week’s picture.

Things have been nuts around the house, but are starting to slow down (finally!), so I’ll hopefully get back to posting more regularly, and I’m sure the closer I get to delivering this baby the more freaked out I’ll be = more posts!

34 weeks

23 Mar

First, can I say I’m SO excited to see everyone this weekend at the baby shower?!! Can NOT wait.

In my Inbox today I got my 34 week email from fitpregnancy.com and it had some disturbing “What to Expect this week” info. The email said to get the carseat in the car this week and pack my overnight bag. Wow…. that makes me anxious, nervous and scared.

Though, let me tell you what my biggest worry is: where my water will break. I’ve heard horror stories about it breaking in bed, at the mall, AT WORK, which would be mortifying, in my car….
I know a lot of people’s water doesn’t actually break on their own, but I’m so freaked out that mine will at work or in bed and ruin our mattress….
Lordy, I hope not.
