Baby Shower!!

Last Saturday Brian and I had our first baby shower. I'll admit that my little sister who was throwing it for me was way more excited about it than I was. I was fairly convinced that no one would come and that it wouldn't be very fun. I'd already opted for no games and so I wasn't sure if people would even enjoy it (I opted for no games because I don't enjoy games).

It was wonderful though. Better than I imagined. My little sister went above and beyond the call of duty and made it a beautiful day for me and for our baby. She even did my makeup and lent me a dress after I told her that part of the reason that I wasn't excited for the shower was that I felt like I didn't have anything cute to wear. 

She let me take home all the decorations to help decorate our nursery, which is currently our storage room. I have been blown away by all the support that we have received during my pregnancy. Especially from people that I didn't expect it from. 

As of today, I am 29 weeks pregnant. I can hardly believe that we are almost 3/4 of the way through. We start our birth class in a few weeks and after our appointment next week we go down to only two weeks between doctor's visits. I'm actually really ok with that because the farther along I get, the more nervous I get about everything being ok. I can't tell you the number of times I've panicked after realizing that I hadn't felt the baby move in awhile. I never know what is normal or what I should worry about. I'm sure that's a little taste of what motherhood is like :)

I know that I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I am so grateful for Brian. He has been so good to call the doctor for me when it's late at night and I'm worried something is wrong, or to hold me and count kicks when I was worried that the baby hadn't been moving, or give me priesthood blessings, sometimes multiple times in one day. I'm not sure how I would do any of this on my own. 

Everything seems to be speeding up as we get closer to delivery. I'm sure she'll be here before we know it! I can't wait, but I'm also grateful for the time we have together before she comes. I'm looking forward to spending our last holidays together as a couple before we become a trio. As ready as I am to meet her, I'm definitely not ready for delivery yet. I'm glad that there's still a little more time to sleep through the night and take uninterrupted naps. I don't want to wish away the time I have now. I want to savor each part of my life. I loved being single. I've loved being married with no kids. I've loved being pregnant with no kids. I just want to take each step as it comes.

Thank you all for your support of me! I have a great tribe :)
