Hump Day Bump Day – 32 Weeks!

Another week down and this last one was fantastic!
My mother-in-law threw me a baby shower on Saturday {pictures to come} and had a wonderful surprise for me! I was in the kitchen getting some final prep done when I heard MY MOTHER {who lives in VA and I wasn’t expecting to see until December} say “It looks great in here!” I whipped around and sure enough, Z and his mom had planned the whole thing out so she could fly down and surprise me. Obviously the tears started flowing and I was totally shocked. It was a fantastic surprise.
Z and I also had the opportunity to ask our dear friend Mary Ann to be Keelin’s Godmother. Mary Ann is currently battling breast cancer and is one of the most courageous and inspirational people we know. She gratefully accepted!
I’m getting choked up just writing this because it was such an impactful weekend!
Monday was quite eventful, beginning with my latest check up at the midwife’s office where everything looked perfect. Keelin is still measuring about a week behind but she said she wasn’t at all surprised due to my frame and progress thus far. Her heartbeat was, yet again, one of the most beautiful sounds I’ve ever heard and SO much louder than the last time we went. Diane, our midwife, said she’s also head down so let’s hope she stays that way!!!
Passing out Halloween candy was a lot of fun on Monday and we had a lot of eager little trick or treaters. We also had a lot of punk teenagers with nothing but sweats and pillow cases. Come on…. Rule of thumb: if you think you are too cool to wear a costume, you are too old to be out trick or treating.
AND my friend Bonnie from high school had her baby on Monday! A little Halloweenie! Camryn Lynette Prewitt is absolutely beautiful and seeing photos of her sweet face makes me THAT MUCH MORE EXCITED about Keelin’s arrival!
In other news… there are a slue of people who are sick at my work so I’ve been trying to lather up on hand sanitizer when I can and pumping up my vitamin C but I’m PRAYING that I don’t get sick as well. Having dealt with being sick already, at about 17 weeks, it’s not something I want to go through again at 32!
And now for the weekly stats!
