Braxton Hicks Contractions
I had my first braxton hicks contractions on Thursday. I wasn’t sure what it was at first, and so I texted my friend to make sure. I was having an achy, period like feeling in my back that came in and went in waves. They only lasted a little while, but that was the first I had had anything like it! It kind of made me nauseous, and it made me wonder why they were in my back instead of my stomach. Hopefully I will not have back labor!
I finally have gotten the dreaded swelling. I tried to put on some closed-toed shoes on Sunday for church, and realized that my feet were too swollen to fit! Then on Monday I woke up and was washing my hands and realized my hands were pretty swollen too! It’s not really funny, but I almost wanted to laugh at how silly my feet looked!
This past weekend was my baby shower. My two good friends Ashley and Brandi threw me a wonderful shower and I was a very lucky girl! The party was duck themed and was super cute!
My mother and grandmother could not make it since they live about 6 hours away, so my friend Brandi was nice enough to set up skype so they could watch the entire shower, as if they were there! In the picture she is showing them the cake!
I got a a ton of amazing and wonderful gifts, and I will not put a picture of all of them, butthis quilt was hand stitched by Jon’s grandmother. You can’t see it in the picture, but Adam’s name is stitched at the bottom!
