35 Weeks

Today marks week 35, which means I have about 5 weeks remaining before Chloe comes into the world. I am actually enjoying these days, getting things ready for her arrival, sleeping well, and eating ice cream (the real stuff, people!). Some of you might know that for about the past 5 years I haven't been able to consume dairy products due to a bacteria I picked up in China that messed up my digestive system. I read some information that this can be reversed during pregnancy (either temporarily or permanently). I decided one evening to give it a try with a dairy queen cone. No problems ensued and I have been enjoying the occasional treat since. I have even had cheese on a sandwich with no issues. It is pretty fun to enjoy some of the 'off-limits' foods I have been living with out for 5 years. I am trying to not go too crazy as to not gain any more baby weight than I already have.

Last weekend some of my best friends hosted a baby shower for me. It was such a great time. I felt incredibly loved and spoiled by all the adorable things given to bring our sweet girl into the world. I love baby showers because there is always a unique array of people from different parts of life there. It was so great to see everyone that was able to come. Here are a few pictures from the day...I found it hard to take pictures at my own shower.

People have asked if I have my bags packed and if I am ready to have her. No bags yet and still enjoying her growing inside of me-although she is getting crowded. I will start going to the doc 1x a week from here on out and get to find out all the technical stuff that might be going on. So far all I know is her head is down, which is a great thing. Her room is close to completed and I will hopefully post some pictures in the next week or so.

I also had a wonderful mother's day. My hubby took me to lunch, gave me tulips and ice cream and bought me a pair of shoes that I really like. Here is a picture of my love in the baby room.

I can't believe that 1) Chloe is almost here, and 2) that you can eat ice cream! Wouldn't it be awesome if it stayed around after pregnancy?
