Here's me at 34 weeks! I didn't have a chance to take it in our "usual" spot. Time is flying by......not to many more pictures with my belly. :)

Well I survived the week of madness. All went well despite my feet swelling to the extreme! I think the combination of being super busy, on my feet from 8 to 9 every night and the higher temps did me in. Glad this week is a little slower.
Last Thursday night my church held a baby shower for me. It was so sweet of them to all take time out of the busy work week. I was overwhelmed by all the ladies that showed up and all the wonderful gifts. Our baby is definitely getting spoiled and we are closer to being ready for his arrival.
Here's a couple of pictures from that evening. Thank you to Alice, Connie, Carla and Marti for hosting and making wonderful food!

This Saturday was my family baby shower. My sisters and mother put on a wonderful shower with more great food including Scratch cupcakes as party favors.
It was a great weekend seeing family and I want to thank everyone for all the great gifts and for making the trip. I feel so blessed to have amazing people in my life and thank God for all that he has given me.

Tomorrow we get to see our little guy and how much he's grown since the last ultrasound 7 weeks ago.

First off let me say.....Happy Mother's Day mommas! I hope you all had a wonderful day doing whatever it is you love and spending time with family.
I feel blessed to have some amazing mommas in my life. Not only my own mother, but my mother-in-law, my sister, and my sister-in-laws. All of them have shown me wonderful examples that I hope to use when my little boy arrives. Thank you ladies!
This past week I had my 32 week appointment. Everything went very well. Doctor said my weight gain has been extremely good, only gaining 10 pounds total. Also baby is measuring a little big still so, the doctor said WE GET TO HAVE ANOTHER ULTRASOUND!! Michael and I are so excited to see how much more chubbier our little boy got. The reason for this ultrasounds, which is my third, is to check on the baby's growth. They want to measure him again and compare with our last ultrasound which was done at 28 weeks. Our third ultrasound is set for next Wednesday the 23rd and I will be at 35 weeks.
It's probably best that we didn't schedule it for this week because my schedule can't get any fuller. On top of working 8 to 5:30 Monday through Friday here's what else I have on my plate.
Monday night- Lamaze class from 6 to 9:15
Tuesday night- hair appointment
Wednesday night- bankers seminar at Isle of Capri from 4 to 8
Thursday night- Church baby shower from 6 to ???
Friday night- head back to Calmar for the weekend and dinner with Heather
Saturday- baby shower back home and my cousin's graduation party
Mike has Wednesday through Friday off work because we have Butter and Robin visiting us this week as well. So on Tuesday night I'm preparing meals and cleaning up the house and then on Thursday night I will also have to pack to head home straight after work.
Boy if that won't make the week go by fast then I'm not sure what will.
This weekend was a productive one. We had great weather! Mike finished the windows in the baby's room and stained the windows in our room. Cross our fingers for good weather on Wednesday so all can be done! I know Mike and I will be glad when that project is complete.

Well I've made it to 32 weeks. Time is flying by and we only have 8 more weeks to go. May is set to be a busy month so I know the next 4 will be quick. With graduations, baby showers, working on the weekends, Memorial Day weekend, and finishing up the baby's room.
I am now going to the doctor every 2 weeks which is exciting. Our baby boy is growing, moving and stretching out. I definitely have noticed that my body is getting sore.
Here's a view of my baby belly at 32 weeks!
Mike and I also started going to Lamaze class. It's every Monday night from 6- 9:15. Makes for a long day but with one class down and 3 more to go it's been fun. We have 12 or 13 couples in the class, 2 couples are having twins and the couple we sat next to is due the day after us.
It surprised me with how many couples chose to wait to find out the sex of the baby. Mike would have done so but me being the planner that I am I have to find out. Good for people who can do it, but it's not for me.
Tomorrow night is our second class and I can't wait to see what we talked about or discuss. Even though most of the information isn't new to me, I really enjoy hearing questions people have and their opinions.
