Labor Signs: None. A few Braxton Hicks contractions.
Belly Button in or out? Very out.
What I miss: Moving comfortably, easy dressing
What I am looking forward to: Meeting my littlest man, Gulf Shores vacation in less than a week!
Milestones: I'm having a baby NEXT MONTH. Hopefully ;)

On Monday night I was at Amanda's for a Bible study with a small group of women. When I got there we chatted and got snacks in the kitchen as usual, then decided to head downstairs. Amanda said, "Rach, go ahead and hit the lights at the top of the stairs." When I did I saw a big sign with streamers that said "Congrats Rachel and Baby Desmond!" I just stood there staring for a minute... I was SO surprised!! The ladies threw me a surprise baby shower! We had delicious cake made by Melanie, and Desmond got some super cute new clothes (newborn clothes are sooo tiny and cute!!) and diapers (plus a candle and bath gel for me :D). It was such a sweet surprise. Thank you again!! I may post more pictures later.
