Baby shower!

I got some much-needed time away from my bed this last week! I got permission from my doctor to go to my mom's house for a baby shower!! I had to lie down the whole time still, but at least it was a change of scenery! My friends Kandis and Jessica threw the party for me, and it was so fun to see everyone that came!

This is me and my momma -- the very excited grandma-to-be!!! She likes to talk to Baby and give him kissess :)

This is me lying down -- look how huge my belly is!!!!

This is my friend Jessica with a diaper cake she made -- so cute!!

Kandis was so excited to play this game -- 'Ooey Gooey, What's That Pooey' -- haha so funny! There's different melted candy bars in each diaper -- we had to guess what candy bar it was.

This is Steve's reaction to the Pooey diapers! I can't wait to see his face when he has to change the baby's diaper for the first time!!!! Hahahaha!

Fun times, fun times!! I'm now 35+ weeks, so the end is getting closer!! I may get to go off bed rest on Thursday --I'll be 36 weeks then -- and Dr.Lochner said Steve needs to take me to dinner so we can have one last date before the baby comes -- I quite agree! I'm so anxious to get out of the house and GO somewhere!!! I'm excited! But I'm sure Baby will come soon after -- I'm still having regular contractions at least twice a day, and I'm dilated to a 3 and 75% effaced -- so it probably won't take long after I stop the bed rest to go into labor. I'm determined to make it to full term, though, so I'm hoping I can keep him in there for another week! Cross your fingers for me :)

Bed rest bites!

Well, I'm about 34 weeks pregnant now -- 6 weeks away from my due date -- and I have been on bed rest for preterm labor for 5 weeks already. I am really close to going stir crazy!!! For all of you that think that staying in bed day in and day out -- never going to work, church, never even going outside -- sounds like it would be a fun time, let me tell you now -- it is NOT fun! But I only have 2 1/2 more weeks of bed rest, then they'll take me off the contraction-stopping drugs I'm on, and if I go into labor, they'll just let me! So at least an end is in sight!! :) My belly is getting HUGE now; Steve talks to my belly like it's a seperate entity -- "Hi, Sam; Hi Ollie; Hi huge belly; Hi Baby!" He has also taken a liking to calling me "the fat lady" -- very endearing, don't you think?! :) He says it very lovingly, of course! These pictures were taken about a week before I had to start bed rest, so I am MUCH larger now -- which is good, because that means he's getting bigger too :)
