But, on the bright side, I was 34 weeks last Wednesday... and when I went to the doctor, I was measuring 37 weeks. Wait, is that a bright side? I was wondering when the nurse told me that didn't necessarily mean that he was coming early- just that he's big. Well, the bright side of it was that up until that doctor's appointment, I was starting to wonder if I had a toddler sized baby, because NONE of the doctors would tell me what I was measuring. Only three weeks ahead of schedule- whew. Can you hear the sarcasm as I'm typing? :)
I will say this- I was totally blessed two weekends ago with a baby shower at my cousin's house. One of my best friends (whom I usually only get to see once a year) helped host the shower- my partner in crime, Amy. And my little sis was there, along with family and friends to make it truly special. I got a car seat/ carrier- so at least now I know I can bring John Michael home from the hospital! And we got some very needed things like bath time goodies, onesies, sleepers, the whole nine yards. Here are some pics from the day:

I'll go ahead and say this too while I'm at it (I don't seem to be holding anything else back today)... there was a time in my early stages of pregnancy where I actually said to myself, "Maybe you will be one of those lucky girls who doesn't blow up like the marshmallow man in your last trimester." Not so, dear friends, not so. I've come to terms with it though, so it's cool.
Now, I will roll myself off of this couch and go find something else to eat in the kitchen. :) Have a great week!
