I can’t believe our due date is just one week away–and then at the same time, I can’t believe I’m still pregnant! This pregnancy has felt so long but the last month or so has dragged on slower than ever.  I guess that’s what happens when you’re waiting for one of the most exciting and nerve-racking moments of your life to come. 


When it came to having a baby shower, unlike most preggo moms to be who I know, I originally felt more nervous than excited! Since this pregnancy has not been a walk in the park and I’ve mostly felt so sick with 24-hour nausea, Phil and I have been cautiously optimistic every step of the way. That said, my sweet mom and sister would not take ‘no’ for an answer and they flew out from the east coast a few weeks back to throw an intimate shower for Phil and I with some close friends and family.
