28 Weeks

>> Thursday, March 20, 2008

Welcome to the third trimester! Only about 12 more weeks to go. Let the countdown begin. This past week has been a busy one. I spent a lot (I mean a lot) of time cleaning last week. I had my baby shower of Saturday. It was wonderful! I am spoiled rotten by all my family and friends. I think if the baby came out today we would be okay. We got all of our major items including our car seat, pack and play, swing, exsersaucer, and stroller. We also got tons of cute clothes (LOTS of Pink!) and other baby necessities. The cutest was the little owl outfits I got. I love owls (my sorority mascot) and it is not always easy to come by. The cutest part of the shower was the make your own onesies station. I got tons of cute onesies made by all of our friends. Until the guys got a hold of the extras at the party following the shower...lets just say not all will make it onto baby Eads' body! The food was awesome (you know preggers has to give a shout out to the food!) and overall a great time. Michael and I had to go register for more stuff since we have a family shower next month! I hope she knows how lucky she is.

That night we threw a BBQ since everyone came intown from such distances. The longest travelers being Mom from Florida and BFF (yeah I am trying to bring it back) Michele from Indiana. Most family and friends came from Gtown and then a lot of our Raleigh crew. Well it was a big party and was fun even if I could not join in on all the drinking festivities. That is the worst about being pregnant. I need some ALCOHOL!

I have been feeling so so. I actually had to go to an unscheduled appointment yesterday because I have not been able to get the swelling down in my feet. I was starting to get a little concerned when they would stay swelled up overnight after rest. Everything seems to be fine though I just need to take it easy put my feet up more. And maybe there is hope for this extra baby weight I am gaining. I think half of it is water! I have an appointment next week for my glucose test (argh!) and my biweekly appointments have begun. Are any of my other pregnant chicks tired of going to the doctor? I have never been so much in my life! On a side note my appointment last week put me two weeks earlier than previous measurements. Does anyone predict a May baby? I am keeping my fingers crossed because it could just be a sign she is going to be BIG!

This weekend will be spent organizing the nursery with all the new goodies, a little shopping, and following doctors orders of taking it easy and putting my feet up. I am looking forward to it. If only it was Friday.

I'm about to hit the 35week mark.. which means going once a week. Of course.. it's nothing like fertility treatments. I once went 10 days in a row (including Sat & Sun!). I just look at all the appts as another way to countdown how close we are getting :)
