I was on the fence about taking pregnancy photos.  Most pregnancy photos I've seen look like a mix of bad senior glamour photos and awkward pregnancy nakedness.  But part of me knew I might me mad at myself for not documenting this special time in our lives.  So a couple of weeks ago my friends Katie Kester and Nikki Ballard took our pregnancy photos and I'm so glad that they did. Here are a couple of my favorites:

So lately I have gotten a lot of good news.  I haven't had any more blood pressure issues and my doctor thinks I only have about a week or so until Liam is born.  I am 60% effaced and 1 cm dilated.  Also my doctor thinks that once my labor starts, it will go fast.  I couldn't be more excited.  Now I am just waiting. I still need to put some final touches on the nursery, make my playlist for the hospital and finish packing my hospital bag,...

Two weeks ago, I had to go to the doctor's office because my blood pressure was higher than it should be and my ankles were really swollen.  Since both of these are symptoms of pre-eclampsia, my doctor wanted to check and see if my urine contained protein (another sign of pre-eclampsia) which it did not, thank GOD!  Last Wednesday, I had a follow up appointment and once again my blood pressure was higher than it should be.  My doctor calmly told me that he wanted me to go...

The other day my friend Kacey mentioned that I hadn't posted 10 Items I Fancy in a while and since I do have a couple of baby showers coming up, I decided to make a special 10 Items I Fancy list just for Liam. 1.  These swaddle blankets from Dwell Studio are too cute!

2.  I love The Shins and I think this Tad Carpenter poster is perfect for Liam's nursery. 3.  Socks the Fox from Blabla with his little...

I am officially in my 3rd trimester!  A lot has happened since my last baby post.  We have two baby showers planned for March, we registered, we completed our Stork Support class at the hospital, we bought our crib and we have started on the nursery! We decided to go with the Davinci Jenny Lind crib and ordered it from Amazon.  We decided on this crib because it will match the the changing table we were gifted  and the rocking chair my mom found for...
