Sickness and Pregnancy

So this past week I have been pretty sick. I went to the Dr. and he said that I have what is called Croup Cough. Normally this is something that babies and children get, so when adults get it, it's a bit rare. Seriously, what are the chances that I would get this a week before my due date??? Not something that I was planning on! It was not fun, but I think I am getting over the worst of it. Now I am just left with a scratchy voice and an annoying cough.

But here I am 2 days until due date and I am not feeling anything in the way of contractions. I think I have just made him way too comfortable in there. I will be going to the Dr. tomorrow to see if I have made any more progress. So I am crossing my fingers!! Any good vibes you can send my way would be great!!

Also, new in our lives is that Josh finally got his day schedule back. We are so excited about that. It was tough for us to have him working graveyards.

Well that is it for now. I really hope my next post is about our new little baby. But we will see!!

So Saturday was my birthday! It turned out to be a pretty fun day. Josh and I had to work until 5 so that wasn't so much fun. But after that we went and got some Cafe Rio and then we stopped by my mom's house and I got to open a super cute purse from her and some shoes. Then last night, we went to my dad's house for a bigger family gathering and had a yummy dinner and dessert. I got some more way fun things like nailpolish, gift certificates, and games. So it was a pretty good birthday for me this year.
It was harder for me to concentrate on it being my birthday this year because we are just anxiously awaiting for this baby to come. So we don't have a whole lot else on our minds other than being ready for a new baby. Only 1 week and 3 days until Due Date!!
****Sorry for the horrible pics! I was a slacker with taking pictures this year, so I only have 2 that are just awful. *****

Baby Shower

So this last Saturday I had my baby shower. It was so much fun. Thanks to my sisters and mom for such a great time. And thanks everyone that came. Always fun to see family and friends. We got some really cute things and now I just really can't wait to see Talon. We are getting so close now and I am doing everything I can to get him here! That is what we have been doing the last little while is just getting everything as ready as we can.
Don't forget to wear your green tomorrow, I would hate for you to get pinched. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Some of the delicious food we had. Chicken Salad Sandwiches.

The table of gifts.

Getting in some practice with Zack!! Isn't he so adorable?

Josh got to come and participate too! He is pretty handsome.

This bib is from my mom and it says born to be wild. Isn't this SO true??

36 down....4 to go!

Okay so I don't really have a whole lot of updates! I just thought I would say that I am down to 4 weeks until I have a little baby!! This is so exciting and so terrifying all at the same time. Is it normal to not feel like you are prepared?? Not only do I not feel prepared with all the things an infant needs to be taken care of, but I don't feel prepared to be a mom! I know this should just come natural....what if it doesn't??? Really though, I am SO excited to see what my baby looks like. He is going to be big. I went to the Dr. yesterday and she said that if she had to guess about how big he is now she would guess 6 lbs. So give it 4 more weeks and he will probably be over 8 lbs. So I am really hoping he decides to make his entrance a little early. Everyone keep your fingers crossed.
