Baby Shower

So our baby shower was a little unusual because I planned it.  My mom and sister helped me but I enjoy planning parties and like to be in control. lol Our Theme for the babies room is Monkeys and Stars but the party theme was multicolor as well.  We had the shower Sunday July 21st. 

Our invitations had this on them
And we actually have decals of this for Baby Boy's room. 

We had lots of finger foods my mom, sister, and I made the day before like veggies and dip, chicken wing dip, BBQ smoked sausage, bread and spinach dip and fruit salad.  All my favorites.  Also instead of doing a fancy cake my mom made chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, boston cream, and white coconut cake.  They were delicious and much cheaper then the fancy ones that sometimes don't take good.  Here are the cakes
The cakes went over well but still had some left over for me to still eat after!!  Yumm!!

 Here you can see all the decorations I bought/made!!  I think it turned out nice.


Here is the gift table.  I had the sign made from etsy!  I love it and will be putting it in Baby Boy's room!  Oh and those star multicolor blankets under the presents my mom made for us.  They are beautiful.  I will have to get a better picture and post on a later blog because they are hard to see here. 

 The food went over well and actually only food we really had left was the stuff at the end of the table because people ran out of room on their plates lol
I love candy so for our guest favors I had a candy table with bags for everyone to take some candy home with them!  I was sure I would have a ton of candy left over but I didn't.  Just enough for me to snack on =)
My sister did a great job at the shower.  She did all the announcing and games.

We were excited about opening all of Baby Boy's presents.  We got a lot of great things.  We hadn't bought much waiting till after the shower so now its time to shop for the things we didn't get!!  We love to shop for Baby Boy!!
Then we forgot to get these pictures before we cleaned up but remembered to get a few after! lol Here is G and I and my Sister, Mom and I

I Passed!

So this is long overdue I know but I passed my 3 hour glucose test!!  It was sooo much easier to blog during fertility treatments.  Now it seems like I never have time to do it.  I am 35 weeks pregnant now and lots to update on so I will try to write a few times this week to catch back up.  I really hope I can do it!!

First around 30 weeks we had maternity pictures done.  We love them but haven't ordered any yet because again too busy!  I have been working as much as possible to keep my time off for midwife appointments and for when Baby Boy comes.  Actually I have been working more then 40 hours a week when I am able to so I can save up some comp time.  One week I worked all 7 days and 3 of those days I worked 16 hours. 

Past few weeks my back, feet, and ribs have been hurting.  I am feeling pretty big and getting tired again.  Sitting at my desk causes my feet to swell so by Friday they are huge.  My upper back has been hurting as well and I am assuming that's from the weight of my belly.  I am definitely ready for Baby Boy to be here.  We have an ultrasound and midwife appointment on Friday and I can't wait to see how big he is.  I am pretty sure he's been head down for about a month and a half so if my placenta is still outta the way I am guessing we will still be doing a vaginal birth.  We haven't seen him in a very long time so we are really looking forward to it.

I need to get to bed so I will leave you with some maternity pictures and I will TRY very hard to blog again this week to update more!!
