We just got back a few hours ago from a FANTASTIC trip to Fort Lauderdale & Miami. We went down for Laura & Clay's wedding - it was a PERFECT weekend. Our college friends are incredible -- a huge group of us that only get to see each other once or twice a year. Miss LJE will have so many Aunts & Uncles will love her and spoil her!! I was even able to sneak in a breakfast with two of my lovely ladies, Amy & Oona. It was so much fun to chat with two fellow mothers!! Oona was able to bring her 3 week old daughter, Isla -- I was lucky enough to feed her and hold her. I couldn't get enough!! Isla is so gorgeous and I can't wait for her BFF to be born ;)
Now that we're back, the focus this week is HOUSE. Tomorrow is our inspection and walk through -- closing on WEDNESDAY!! Slowly moving in some things with the major move on Saturday. I can't believe it!!! I'm so excited and ready for our big, single house to be OURS!
We had a doctor's appointment last week - it was very good! The baby's heart rate was 140, she is measuring perfect and it's becoming more & more real! I start going every 2 weeks now (instead of 4) so that's fun. I have my ultrasound on Wednesday (after closing) to see how the placenta previa is progressing. Still hoping it moves - but I'm slowly realizing a C-section may be in my future!
What else?? My mini-baby shower is coming up in less then 2 weeks (thanks to my mama and sister), Josh's parents come up in 2 weeks, we get to do the nursery, we finally get to put together the stroller, we're planning two baby namings (one here, one in Florida) -- ALL exciting things!!! I can't say it enough. We are so lucky.
Until next week... we're signing off. Congrats again to Mr & Mrs KREBS!

•Weight gain: I was in Florida on Friday, therefore unable to weigh in.... too bad, lol.

.•Sleep?: Insomnia is still in full swing but I'm slowly needing less and less sleep at night to function.

•Gender?: Pink. Pink. Pink.
•Stretch marks?: Not yet... it's getting closer and I'm getting nervous they'll just march right on to my belly.
