Update #1

Ok I've got a lot to catch up on so I'm going to take it one thing at a time..... We did maternity pictures. This whole pregnancy I was trying to decide if I wanted to do pictures or not. So finally I made a quick decision and decided to do it. About 2 and a half weeks ago, a great photographer in our ward agreed to do our pictures. We had so much fun. Stefan did a great job and I'd recommend him to anyone. You can see for yourself.....  (I was 34 weeks)

Also during that week... my sister-in-law had her baby!!! Brittney was such a trooper the whole time (at least from what I hear) and did such a great job. They had a beautiful, healthy little girl. 6lbs 8 oz 18 inches long. I wish I had pictures to show but I'll let Brittney show off her little girl. :) Just know she is the cutest little girl you've ever set your eyes on.
Now the next few events would be Melissa's pinning, graduation and the baby shower.... I'll save those for the next post. :)

I don't have a belly picture for this week because it's been so busy but I'll for sure have one for next week.

How far along? 36 Weeks, 6 Days
Total weight gain/loss: 25 lbs
Stretch marks? Not yet.

Best moment this week: Having family being able to feel him move.
Miss Anything? Walking and breathing normal.
Movement: Oh yeah!
Food cravings: Chocolate milk
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope only when I eat too much
Labor Signs: Just some good ol’ Braxton Hicks
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly, off. L
Happy or Moody (most of the time): Happy.
Weekly Wisdom: Take your time getting to places.
Looking forward to: Getting this baby out of me.
***Update: I went to the doctor on Monday and my cervix is still really closed. So let the walking begin.

Memory Lane

It hasn't fully hit me yet. I still can't believe that in 3 days I will have graduated from college. How crazy is that?!?!?!? This whole college experience feels like it has flown by. So much has happened and I will cherish every moment of it. I was laying in bed the other night (because James thinks it's funny to wake me up at 2am and start kicking like crazy) thinking of all the good times I've had. So for this post it's a walk down memory lane.....

There's so much more I could include in this post but I better not because I doubt you want to keep scrolling down for 5 minutes. A lot has happened in my 4 years of college and this is just the tip of the iceburg. I have made many friends whom I consider family. I've had so much support from so many people and I can't thank all of them enough. Even though we're staying in Rexburg for Dan to finish, it will never be the same. I'm about to end a chapter of my life that I will never forget.
