baby shower and mom's 50th birthday!

i have less than 9 weeks to go till baby t is born. :-D i'm so excited. we had our last dr.'s appointment on the 24th. the dr. wasn't happy with my bloodsugars, even though they were on average about 100 i had a couple that were between 150 and 200 so now we have to make sure that doesn't happen. we're back to checking every hour to two hours and making sure that i dual wave all of my boluses so that my sugar doesn't go high after i eat. yuck ... if i wasn't pregnant i'd be so happy with these blood sugars. either way i can't go past 39 weeks and we still have a 9 in 10 chance of a c-section. we find out this friday for sure about the c-section and hopefully schedule the date! it's getting so close.

this past saturday (the 2nd)was our baby shower. it was absolutely awesome. my mom, sister, and friend miranda planned it all. it was so much fun. we had somewhere between 70 and 80 people. there was tons of food and 3 gorgeous cakes. we were so blessed and received so many gifts for the baby and for us. the only thing that we still need is a crib mattress and a couple more plain white onsies lol. it was such a great day.

to add to it saturday was also my momma's 50th birthday! she spent her whole birthday making sure that our baby shower was perfect, so we tried to surprise her on sunday and plan a little surprise party for her at red robin (which is where she specifically wanted to eat lol) i'm pretty sure in the end she knew that she was going to red robin but i don't think she knew that her friends and mom and aunt would be there. either way it was a lot of fun and hopefully she had a great birthday. we got her some cute halloweenies and some gift cards and she got to wear a crown that my sister made ... and the people at red robin sang to her and brought her an ice cream sunday. (which i definitely helped her eat ... hehe.)

... oh and one of the girls we were with locked her keys in the car so my dad and both of my brothers had to break into her car for her lol.

It's so sweet and so thoughtful for you to put up a surprise party for your mom. I can still remember when I've also thrown a surprise birthday party for my momma (I was also pregnant that time). My husband had an instant cash advance in his company to ensure that the party would be successful. The remaining money was used in the hospital when I gave birth to my son, Gareth. Making our momma's happy is one of the nicest thing a daughter can do. <3
