Baby Shower & Last Month of Pregnancy

My friend Veronica put on such a beautiful baby shower for me. I know that Mrs. Broadwater and my mother-in-law helped her quite a bit to make it so special and nice for me. I am Thankful for you all who worked so hard! I absolutely LOVED it!!!
The chair by mine in the middle was for my mom. I loved having her up there with me! Love her!!

The front was beautiful! the table to the left in the back was full of scapbooking stuff for people to make me scrapbook pages to put in the baby book. Now I have alot of nice pages that all I have to do is glue pictures on! :) such a good idea!

The food table looked amazing, and all the food was delicious! My sister-in-law made the cake and she did an awesome job! It was chocolate with a heart-shaped filling in each piece of peanut butter cream.....need I say more! :) Just writing about it makes me want some!

Mrs. Simpson has been very special to me. She has really been my personal prayer angel in the past few years, and I love her dearly! She always takes the extra minute when talking with her to really hear everything you are saying and truly care! She did a small devotional at the shower using the letters of Bryans name. It was very special to me! 
And the Games begin!.....
So many ladies showed up to give their support. We all had alot of fun!
This game, everyone was on a team. Spoonful by spoonful you had to carefully go from one end of the table to the other end and fill up a small bottle. The last team to fill up the bottle and drink it all was the winner! (the winning team had a gift baby basket that they gave to me instead of winning theur own nice!)

This game was one I remembered playing when I was only 10 at my mom's baby shower for my little sister, and I won! Now look at my "little" sister, she's all grown up! Everyone had to tear off a piece of toilet paper the length they thought would fit perfectly around the biggest part of my belly. Some were quite funny! :)

The class of 2003! :) now we are all three having babies all within a month and a half of each other. Its been so fun being pregnant together....although we now are just ready to be done!

Highschool best buds 10 years later! Love you all!

I had to post a picture of my greatest support. My mom (on the left), and my mother-in-law (on the right). They have helped me through so much, and constantly there for me! I love you both dearly!

In the end in was such a good night!!

Now, for just a quick update of this past month. As for little Bryan....he is just doing amazing! My doctor is just amazed at how well he is thriving in the womb. He is putting on weight, and growing strong and healthy. We are just so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with this healthy baby boy! As for me....well, I'm still trudging through these last few weeks of pregnancy. The bigger and stronger and healthier Bryan gets, the more strain it is on my body. If I did not have my PICC line, I think I would have ended up in the hospital under constant care for this whole 3rd trimester. I am very very thankful for the ability to do the health caare at home! We had a bit of a scare last week, and we were very close to the doctors taking Bryan. I wasn't feeling well, and his heartrate dropped for a lengthy amount of time without coming back up. She sent me straight to the hospital and said if it happened just one more time that she was taking him. I started to get very scared! Thankfully, he cooperated and we were able to go home. Just a few days after that, my PICC line messed up again, and I landed back in the hosppital for another 24 hrs. They ended up pulling the old one out, closing that site, and putting a whole new one into the other arm. Everything is good now! :)

Since Bryan is doing so well, and I'm all "pumped" back up with all the good stuff (from hospital stay), and doing pretty well myself, it doesn't look like he will be coming too early. So unless I go into labor between now and my scheduled C-Section (March 23rd), Bryan will continue to grow bigger and stronger! I am very thankful! That is only 12 days away though!!!! So you can look for my next blog update to have pictures of our precious newborn baby boy! YAY!!! :)

  2. Loved reading this post, so sweet! I'm so sad that I missed your baby shower. :( I loved seeing all the pictures though. Every day I pray for you and thank God that he has brought you this far along. Not much longer now and I'm so thankful for answered prayer. :) Love you!

  3. Looks like your shower was wonderful! I love your pics! You look amazing! Praying for you as your delivery date approaches :)

  4. Praying for you during this last little stretch! You are an amazingly strong lady! Your posts always shame me for the little things I complain about, when you battle almost daily to stay healthy and have such a sweet spirit. I can't wait to see pictures of your precious little miracle!

  5. Thanks so much everyone! Pray real hard that this baby comes sooner rather than later! :) We are both very ready!!

  6. When moving into a new or different house people very seldom check the waterfall shower head to see if there is a shower water filter. They assume that, as long as everything is working, there is no cause for concern.
