I had my shower Sunday and OMG....it was awesome and we got SO much stuff!!! In addition to the gifts, we got $320 worth of cash and gift cards! There are at least 5 or 6 people who have contacted me that they were unable to make it to the shower but have gifts for me this Sunday!! Whoop!

Today I went to Babys R Us because I had gift cards and OMG.....I have to say,...they have WAY MORE than Buy Buy Baby. I had $50 and ended up spending $100 but could have spent $100 more! I was actually impressed with them. About 5 different people asked to help me and they even let me use my BBB coupons there. I will def be going back. They just had stuff that BBB doesn't even carry. I never saw travel wipe cases, cloth diaper/burp cloths, lap pads (for on top of the changing pad), etc....and where BBB may have had one or two of something, BRUS had 10 different kinds of the same thing to choose from. I could spend $1000 in there easy!

Anyway....I also had my 30 wk appt today and my dr. seemed shocked at how well I'm doing now. No abnormal protein (it was 430 mg three weeks ago) and my BP was great. I don't have a lot of swelling (unless I'm up all day or something). I've gained 30 lbs, which I'm not thrilled about but I gained 50 last time. Hopefully, I won't gain 20 more! Heartbeat and movement was good. I go back to High risk next week and then off Thanksgiving week.....and back the next. Oh...and my huge Thrombophilia blood panel came back normal. Not happy about paying hundreds of dollars for "no reason" but oh well...I guess it had to be done.

Ok...here come the pics!

Cake made by one of the college girls at church who I use to teach when she was in middle school!

I actually didn't get a lot of blankets....only 3...and one pack of receiving blankets! Crazy as it may seem, I really still needed tons of stuff. Most of what I got was clothes, cutesie stuff and bath stuff. With the money/cards I got all of the health and safety items (Tylenol, thermometer, brush/comb, vapor rub, etc). I also got some bibs (didn't get any except a couple that came with certain outfits), more receiving blankets, a baby book, a white noise machine, a couple extra crib sheets, bassinet sheets, pack n play sheet, waterproof pads for on top of the changing pad, car seat head positioner, burp cloths (only had three and they were pretty ones...not really absorbent), a travel wipe case....I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff. what's bad is I could totally go spend about $500 more RIGHT now!!
