Our Weekend

We had a pretty eventful weekend.

Friday night I had a get together with the girls in my small group. What I didn't know was that it was a surprise Baby Shower for me! I walked in and the house was decorated in pink, green and brown and everyone was sitting there just smiling.

It was a great surprise. Baby got even more wonderful gifts and they also did the thing where you ask the guests to sign a children's book instead of a card (they did this at my family shower too), so her library is growing!

Saturday we went to Decatur to spend time with my family. That was our last trip home until after Baby is here. It was bittersweet. My mom and I both got a little emotional when we left on Sunday, knowing that it may be the last time I see her before I am a mommy.

AND, Sunday morning we had our long awaited maternity session with Val! She had coffee ready for us when we got to her house. :) It was so much fun to take these pictures. Plus, Val is awesome- she puts you totally at ease and gives you these amazing compliments, so you can't help but feel beautiful. You can check out a few sneak peak pictures from our session at her blog.

I've been feeling sort of sick lately. Friday night I started having a weird sensation/pain in my lower left abdomen. Felt like something was stretching or almost ripping. It didn't hurt when I sat down, but hurt when I stood up. That lasted through Saturday night. I woke up Sunday feeling good though. But, then Sunday night came around and my stomach was so upset. I took an anti nausea med, but it didn't help. I hardly slept at all Sunday night, going back and forth from the bed to the couch. I was still upset Monday morning and had a lovely morning hovering over the toilet. It was one of the worst rounds of morning sickness I have had since I got pregnant. Bless my husband's heart, he stood by me the entire time and brought me water, wiped the toilet down and gave me damp washcloths. He is so good to me. I felt a little better after getting rid of every last thing in my stomach, but still not completely normal.

Today is my appointment with the specialist and my third ultrasound. I am hoping they will look at my sugar level records and tell me I can quit sticking 4 times a day, maybe go down to twice. I'm anxious to see Baby again. I bet she has changed so much since our last ultrasound. I'll post pictures tonight.

So, that's been our weekend. Hope you had a good one!

I won't be a mean spam person. Why do those people keep doing that?! Grrrrrr...

Corie! I hope you didn't feel sick on Sunday night because of your sugar indulgence at my house?!? Oh no. I hope you start to feel better soon. You have had it so rough, girlfriend. I feel so bad for you . . . (((hugs!!!)) it's soon over!

Good luck with your appt today. I'm thinking of you!!!

Thank you for the sweet compliments you gave me. You are more than welcome to "steal" one of the pics at my blog and post it at yours. Totally okay!

I had a blast, too. But I have to say, I said the things I did because they're true. You looked amazing and a pregnant woman really can't get anymore prettier than you.

What a wonderful surprise, the shower looks like it was great. Although now I want ice cream. I love giving books for baby showers, LP has such a great library that was started at her shower. I hope you're feeling better now.
