~Pics to come~
Collin made out like a bandit at the shower! Tons of cute cloths, bibs, socks, diapers, you name it, he got it! There were some big ticket items we didn't receive but DH and I plan to get those over the next few weeks (swing, glider, monitor, yada yada). We went to Wal.Mar.t last night and used up all our gift cards & money to get the things off our registry that we didn't receive but would need when he arrives. I'm off today and plan to go to Ko.hl.s and use my $50 worth of gift cards there and get some blankets and maybe some more sleepers. My MIL is taking me shopping here in a few weeks for some more cloths for him at the Car.te.r's store & I'm really looking forward to that!
The shower was great. My friends/family did a great job w/everything. The decorations were so cute! I had a good turn out of people that showed up. I was really nervous at first and just felt really uncomfortable being the center of attention but I got used to it and now I'm kind of sad that it's over. Sunday night I thought I was just going to fall asleep standing up... the shower was over at 4, cleaned everything up and got home around 5. The DH surprised me w/Mexican take out. MMMM.. he's not so bad =)
Hope you ladies are doing well as always! We are so due for some good news... who's it gonna be!!?? It's time!

Hi ladies! Technically I'm not 33 weeks until tomorrow but I thought I'd do a quick update since I haven't in a few weeks. Starting to swell a bit in my hands, feet & face but nothing to bad. Back is starting to hurt and just all around been tired from sleeping like crap. All & all I'm feeling good though! Had an appt yesterday and things are looking good. Go back in another 2 weeks & then start going every week and getting checked for dilation! Holy crap is this moving along quickly! I have my baby shower this Sunday- my friends pulled through & I'm thinking it's going to be a great time! I can't wait =) I hope you ladies are well and as always finger crossed & praying for you all!!

Hi girls! Here are the u/s pics from our visit today!! He cooperated much better for the tech & she got all the measurements she needed. He wouldn't turn his head for us though so no good face shots this time! He is in the 48Th percentile & weighs about 3lb 6oz. Doc says basically he's perfect! Greatest thing I've ever heard! So thankful! I'll try and explain these pics a bit but I really don't get how the tech knew what this stuff was so here goes nothing...
1- Foot, knee & toes. Kind of hard to tell. The little ball thing is actually his other foot. 2- His hand. He was kind of waving at us! Kept opening & closing it. 3- boy parts! Can't tell can ya!? LOL. He's one proud boy! 4- profile shot. Go back again in another 2 weeks!

As requested! Sorry I haven't been good at getting these on here. I will try and keep up better as my belly is growing at a rapid rate these days! We had our first labor & delivery class last night. It was.... interesting. I originally thought I wanted to go all natural and not take any pain meds... I totally change my mind! After watching that video I am plain terrified. Still doing good... just not sleeping much and still having the groin pain. I wake up about 3 times a night to pee and just can't get comfortable and I'm always hot. Bring on the rest of Summer! LOL. We have our last u/s on Monday so I'll get those pics on here as well. Can't wait to see the little guy one last time before I get to actually hold him in my arms. Amazing. I am so blessed. I wish all you ladies the same. I'm always thinking of you girls. Anyway... hope you ladies have a great weekend. Sending you lots & lots of ((((HUGS))))
