Week 33: Pineapple

This week was a pretty busy week compared to my normal fairly scheduled weeks.  The in-laws arrived on Tuesday and we spent some nice quality time with them.  My mother in law has been knitting some adorable things for Cash and it was great to see that even my father in law is excited.  They say the apple does not fall too far from the tree and this is the case for my husband and father in law.  I am reminded when they visit just how much alike they are.  Guess we will see if Cash is the same.  But I do hope the baby gets some of me in them, I’m not all that bad ;)

I had a check up with the doc this week, unfortunately after a night of eating too much at Amerigo.  So the morning of my appointment I was retaining fluid.  I have a gained a total of 23 lbs and measuring 33 ½ cm.  Dr. E said “You’re doing good kiddo”  I just love her and her matter of fact-ness.  We also had a lake talk.  She told me not to jump in or ride in a speed boat hitting wakes too hard as it could hurt the placenta.  So when we go I will take it easy.  My next visit with her (I have to see a partner next time) she said she will do an ultrasound if Cash is still breech just to check things out.  All and all she said we are just playing the waiting game now and hope baby cooks a bit longer.

Friday night I have an enjoyable evening with the in-laws working on the husband's blown out tire...even though I watched the Jeep almost roll on top of my father-in-law it was a pretty fun night.  Even if I had to pee on the side of the interstate with my mother-in-law holding a blanket so cars driving up the on ramp would not see my preggo butt - haha.

On Saturday my best friends showered Cash and I with love...and there was so much love this day

We had so much yummy food, we made 25 onesies for Cash, guests played Bingo while I opened gifts, and we all played some baby trivia.  After all of the merriment and clean up, the ladies hung out by my mom's pool for the rest of the afternoon.  I do love me some spaghetti sauce!! ;)

I have the most generous friends and family.  There are no words to express my gratitude.  BK and JM...thank you from the bottom of my heart for the best day!  Everything was PERFECT.

Well back to watching the hubs put together baby items...happy day :)

It was the best day with the best friends a girl could ask for. So thankful for our group! Another one for the books. Now put your feet up and take it easy today. Love, love, love you two!!

So glad you were pleased and enjoyed your day! You deserve it! It was an amazing day from start to finish. We are all very blessed to have each other! I thank the Lord every day for our ladies!

You still look so amazing.... I am always so in love with your glow!

I will admit that going through these pictures caused some wacky sort of physical reaction. I burst into tears when I saw the onesie with the Abbey Road photo; for a second I thought it was the photo of us. As much as I try to refrain myself from going on and on about how great it would be to be a guest among you in your beautiful group of friends and to meet your little one before Cash is old enough to take a bus to school because it's really unproductive and makes everyone sad, I feel as though half of my heart is on a boat across the ocean right now and I am powerless to stop it. The stretching is really painful today. I think I am going to eat some chocolate and pray for these hormones to settle.

p.s. My neighbor is practicing her operatic aria on the canal again. Maybe I should ask her to sing something uplifting.

I love you three and the ladies who showered you more than 'soul can hope or mind can hide...i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)' (e.e. cummings).

And Jen - we miss you too!

Why can't I be the kind of scientist that invents teleportation?!

Candace said...

I sure do wish you were Jen!!!!!!!!! Really any scientist that could invent that would be ok for me, however if you did I am sure it would pay well ;)

Miss you like crazy my friend.
