I hope y'all could enjoy a nice holiday weekend! We did :) We went to the Tampa area to visit my hubby's side of the family.
We enjoyed a lot of rest, food and good times. Friday my wonderful mother-in-law took me shopping in the Motherhood Maternity section of Macy's! I got 4 tops, a dress, a pair of slacks and some undies. It was really nice. I can't wait to wear it all!
On Sunday John's mom hosted a family get together and baby shower! We were blessed with clothes, diapers, a blanket, teething ring, carseat toy and books. Grandma to be White is even making a quilt for Sophia using an old shirts of ours. We were also blessed with the funds to purchase a dresser for the nursery. It was great to see the family and catch up on everything.

This week Sophia is starting to take up a lot of space in there! Just when I feel like I am getting used to being pregnant, something changes! Just today she has been moving, rolling and morphing my belly into all kinds of weird shapes. And poking around the outer edges of my sides and ribs. It's a tad uncomfortable, but also really cool. She's making herself more known every day!
I have appointments next Monday with both a doctor and a midwife. So hopefully by Tuesday my decision will be made! I found a professional FB page for my old midwife and wrote her on there, but haven't heard anything back :( I wasn't too hopeful because there was no photo and basically no activity on the page, but I still wish I could've heard from her.
This week my hands and feet are just a tad bigger than normal. Nothing noticeable to anyone but me. I'm hoping getting back into our normal eating and drinking routine will solve that. We ate out and lavishly a lot over the weekend :)
My weekly photo is in a different spot this week, taken on Baby Shower day :)
See everyone next week!
