I was also honored when my mother-in-law hosted me a baby shower here in Muscatine with some local family and friends. We had a delicious quiche, fruit salad, and scones at a local coffee house that overlooks the Mississippi River! We played games, including a game which entailed guests estimating how big around I was with a streamer. It is amazing how people over-estimate, but there were a couple of close guesses! It was a wonderful morning, and I am very grateful for everyone that was able to be there.

Our hospital includes a 3D ultrasound, but unfortunately not much came out of it, as the baby was somewhat uncooperative. First her knee was in front of her face, and then a knee. She (?) wouldn't allow us a nice shot to verify the gender and then completely turned around. Is this a sign of things to come? However, we got a few nice profile shots.
My belly continues to grow as this baby girl gets bigger and it is just now about where to "put" my belly in bed or holding it up when I waddle through the store. All of my appointments have been routine and everything seems to be going well. She definitely moves now, and I am fascinated by the distorted shape my belly takes on as I feel her wriggling around inside. Yesterday I even think she had the hiccups! I am 35 weeks tomorrow, which means only 35 more days (or so) until we get to meet this little one!
