May 28th, 2003

Today was my first baby shower. It was given by my friends at work. It was kind of a group shower for myself, Andrea, and Dorothy. Both Andrea and Dorothy have already had their babies. Andrew, Andrea's baby, is a big ole chunk, and Sophie, Dorothy's baby, is a petite little princess. Dorothy had to spend a lot of the shower standing and rocking her.

I am overwhelmed by how generous everyone was. There was tons of food and I got a bouncy seat, a walker, boppy pillow, sleepers, towels, blankets, clothes, and a photo album. All these beautiful things from people who only know me through work. I don't have any qualms about delivering there. It is comforting to me to know I will be surrounded by friends when I have my baby.

Hello in there... I hope you are comfortable. I am not so much right now. I made the mistake of agreeing to go shopping at Birch Run with Katie and Rachel this weekend. I thought I was going to die. My back and belly hurt so bad. Every store we went to I scanned the place looking for somewhere to sit down. It was really bad. I don't know why that was so much more uncomfortable than working. I don't seem to have much problem at work, and I'm still working full time nights 12 hour shifts. I wanted to include a little bit of monitor strip. Here you are looking good! Very advanced for 30 weeks!
