Baby Shower and 37 weeks!

Yesterday my good friend Kat put on a baby shower for me. I was flooded with generous gifts and had the joy of seeing wonderful friends. I'm more than ready and prepared now for the arrival of our new little one.

This week also marks milestone week 37. So here I am at my shower showing off the belly, which I think has dropped a bit. The other night I was laying in bed, not breathing well as usual, when all of a sudden I felt like I could take deep breaths. What a relief. Although now my lower back has been killing with the extra weight. At my last appointment I was almost 3 cm dilated so we'll see what this week brings.

Kat made an adorable diaper cake.

Me and my sister, Shonda, she came from Tacoma.

My yummy Costco cake.

The "How Big is her Belly?" game.

Both my Aunt Carol and cousin Megan made me beautiful quilts. This was the one from Carol.

My wonderful friends from my MOMS group at church. What a precious support system to have at this time.
Thank you all for your outpouring of love. I feel so blessed!

What a wonderful party! You are so blessed to have such good friends. I feel confident even though I can't be close that you have such a great support system. By the way, you look so beautiful!!!
