34 Weeks and Baby Shower!

My amazing playgroup girls hosted a baby shower for me tonight! We (the playgroup and several more friends) all went to dinner at P.F. Chang's and enjoyed lots of girl talk and great food.



Samantha was the youngest girl at the shower!


I totally forgot to have anyone take photos of me with any presents, but we got some wonderful things: diapers, clothes, books, even a booster seat for feeding later! Meredith is very blessed, and so are we!

Also, here's a pregnancy update:


I'm thinking I look huge! Maybe stripes were not the best choice!

At 34 (almost 35) weeks:
  • I am no longer wearing my wedding rings (well, that happened on our trip to Hilton Head). But my hands aren't as swollen as they were with Russell - the fake rings I bought then fall off my finger - probably because the weather is not as hot.
  • I feel Meredith's little feet and hands poke out all the time! She is (and she has been all along) staying mostly on my right side - I carry Russell on the left so I'm sure she's trying to get away from him already :)
  • I am having a hard time sleeping - well, that's been true for weeks now, but now it's to the point where I sleep with multiple pillows, sometimes sleep sitting up to take pressure off my hips, and wake up every hour or so. But I'm still counting my blessings because it's still better than sleep with a newborn, which we will have soon enough!
We are counting the weeks and very excited to meet our little girl! It will be a huge adjustment for all of us, but we are very excited about seeing her in person!


  1. You look fab! It's funny how fast your pregnancy has gone for me :)
