37 Weeks!!!

37 weeks pregnant! I never thought I would make it this far!!!

If you never heard the story, my sweet SILs planned a baby shower for me on Saturday, April 5 at the Glenwood Tearoom. I attended the shower in all my ENORMOUS glory and then went into labor that night!!! (Bailey was due on April 25) That's why when my sweet friends called a few weeks ago and asked about throwing me a baby shower I said, let's do a Sip n See or something afterwards because I don't have very good luck with baby showers!

Here is a picture of me when I was 37 weeks with Bailey and in the same shirt (and way too-tight pants) with Max.

35 Weeks and Still Cookin

Another doctor's appointment today and I guess no news is good news. Still not dialted, but cervix is thinning and Mr. Man is very, very low (and they tell me this like I don't know!). My attitude is getting worse by the minute, but I know that every day that he stays in there is good, so I'm trying to be at peace with that. My doctor comes back in town (from what I told her was the longest vacation ever!!!) on Monday so that relieves me as well. So as for us, we're packed and ready and waiting. Any day now...

In other news, a few weeks ago before the bedrest, I got my trusty tripod out and revved up the self-timer to take some maternity photos of myself. It's pretty sad since I have lots of fabulous photographer friends who I know would have taken pictures for me. Maybe this is just part of my losing control of everything else in my life so I wanted to still feel like I could do something. Anyway... here's what I got. It definitely beats the 3 or so snapshots that I have of myself while I was pregnant with Bailey. I've tried much harder this time around!
