Lots of Pictures!!

This is the tie Wes wore when we got married

Just to clarify Mitzy is not actually allowed in our room or our bed this was an exception

Wes had to get some fishing stuff in the pictures!!

Here are some of the pictures from the maternity photo shoot Ashley got for me!  Janna (the photographer) worked like crazy and finished them in a week so they would be ready for my work baby shower yesterday!  She did such a good job, Wes and I are really happy with the way they turned out!  There are some bare belly shots, but I didn't want to post them on the blog, I'm a little embarrassed to show my big pregnant belly to the world, but there are some really cute ones!  Anyway I know that was a lot of pictures, and there are tons more, I couldn't decide which pictures to put up!!

Photo shoot...

For my baby shower gift one of my best friends Ashley, paid for a maternity photo session with her friend, Janna.  Obviously I don't have any pictures because we just took them today, but it seems like we are going to have some great pictures, I can't wait to see how they turn out!!  Janna did our other friend Misty's wedding and did a fabulous job!  So I'm very excited about it. 
Everyone has been asking us about names and we still aren't sure, we decided we want to see him first, but here are a few of the options...
Um isn't one of the options, but we needed a 2 letter word for the top of the pyramid!  I bought these blocks for the "photo shoot" today.

This is Jen, Steph, me and Kim at the baby shower they threw for me this last weekend.  It was pretty low key just a few of my closest friends that I've known since college.  I had a great time and appreciate the wonderful friends I have!!  I should have taken more pictures, but I always forget to take pictures!!

35 weeks!!

35 weeks is huge benchmark for any pregnant woman!!!  I'm excited because that means I can deliver at Holy Family where I work, where I know everyone and my Doctor works.  Next if I was to go into labor it wouldn't be stopped, because usually babies do pretty well at 35 weeks.  Not that I'm even close to going into labor since my cervix was closed and high yesterday at my doctor's appointment!  Which is good because if I was dilated a lot my doctor probably would have wanted me to stop working and be on partial bed rest which would have sucked!!  I want to start taking time off from work after I have a baby at home to spend the time with!  I start having doctor's appointments every week from here on out.  I'm still feeling pretty good.  I've felt some braxton hicks contractions, but nothing that is evey painful.  I was sick for about 2 weeks and feeling pretty miserable but now am feeling way better since that's gone!  I can definitely tell baby is sitting right on my bladder because I'm constantly in need for a bathroom!!  I have a little bit of swelling in my ankles, but it's not too bad yet.  I noticed a few more stretch marks (boo), but oh well I guess that's the price we pay for a baby.  I took a week or so off from the gym in hopes it would help my cold go away, but I started back and am still doing fine with walking and the elliptical.  I do have to wear Wes's shirts there now, because all mine show my stomach now!  Now that it's April I can say I'm due next month!!  That is so crazy to Wes and I!  Next month our lives are going to change forever!!
