The cupcakes - oh yum! The cards.
The abundance of gifts!
As for my health; everything looks good. Healthy heart = healthy baby. I had my ultrasound today (I started writing this blog a few days ago but this will be finished today - Friday, August 22, 2008) and it was just a biophysical so no fun ultrasound pictures...sorry! I was so disappointed this morning that I almost hissed at the technician but it's not her fault so I resisted. I got to see how big he is: his head is low and I mean low, I got to see some "belly breathing" and watch him move as I felt his kinetics. I'm hoping for some photos next week and if so I will for sure post them. Other than that I'm just uncomfortable by the end of the day - my feet are like elephant feet...I have a hard time putting on socks and tying my shes. I sleep on my couch now so that I stay comfortably on my side. I figure I've had a pretty easy pregnancy since it was just last week that I gave up heels and for the past month and a half I've been using only maternity clothes.
All that I can ask for now is for a healthy delivery for my little fella.
