As Promised...

My friend finally got me the pictures from my baby shower this weekend, so I thought I'd post a few, as I promised, even though it was two weeks ago at this point.

The lovely food spread.
This is one of my friends who helped to throw the shower. It's actually my friend J that I wrote about a while back, who had been trying to get pregnant since April 2010. I'm pleased to announce that she's about 11 weeks pregnant in this picture!
My mother sent this Pack n Play from Georgia, so I had to take a picture for her to prove it made it.
One of the sweetest gifts--my friend designed this herself!
In other news, the pelvic pain I wrote about before has thankfully been on and off and only really bad a few days over the past week. Strangely enough, it became excruciating for a little while yesterday afternoon, radiating all across the bottom of my uterus, hips, lower back, and groin. I was very confused because even though it hurt in all the right places, it didn't seem like contractions because my uterus was contracting independently of the pain. And changing positions made it worse rather than better. After I laid on the couch for a while trying not to move and not to cry, it went away and hasn't come back nearly as bad since then (after two days where it was coming and going). Very strange, but I guess I'll take it as a good sign that something is happening! I have my goodbye party at work tomorrow and my 38-week OB appointment, and any time after that is fair game for labor as far as I'm concerned!
