These past few weeks have been super hard with Max and Claire - mainly because our house is on the market and I feel like I am on top of them all the time about been clean, cleaning up their toys, not messing up their beds.... list goes on -- but what I want and need to be doing is soaking up every single minute I can with them. Doing fun things. Just the three of us.
Symptoms: a few contractions, spider and varicose veins :(
What I look forward to: agreeing on a name!
Had an appointment last tuesday. I was sure she was going to say I had dilated some, but Nope! Everything is closed up! I go again this Tuesday and will try to update, at least if something changes.
This Saturday, our good friends threw a couples cookout shower for us. It was just perfect. The hostesses went out of their way to make everything look awesome. Delicious food, unique decorations and fabulous friendships!

My in-laws also came in town this weekend and were supposed to come to the shower, but ended up watching the kids. Claire came down with a stomach bug :( . She still doesn't feel well, but hasn't thrown up since the one time early Saturday morning. Luckily she had some breaks where she felt better and was able to ride bikes and enjoy the sunshine!
