Baby Shower





A big "Thank You" to all of you who helped or attended my baby shower last Friday. I feel so grateful for your generosity and friendship! You are all wonderful. I thought you might enjoy some pictures from the event.


Some of you have been asking about my condition and when this baby is going to make his debut. Well, as of yesterday, this baby is measuring 9 lb. 15 oz.! I am still two weeks from my actual due date, however, I am meeting with my doctor tomorrow morning to discuss plans for and induction or C-section. I am unsure about which procedure is best. This baby is only going to get bigger, so I can't imagine going on much longer. Any advice on what to do? I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thanks for inviting me to your baby shower. It was so much fun! You weren't kidding when you said you had BIG babies. Wow! My biggest was "only" 7 lbs. 14 oz., so I have no suggestions other than definitely have an epidural! Good luck! We'll be thinking about you and can't wait to meet "baby Duke".

I wish I could have been there Teresa! You still look good girl. You are all baby. I always gain it EVERYWHERE!
With my twins I was induced. I was scare to death since I had heard nothing but horror stories. But I had the BEST experience and felt that was the easiest and best labor by far. If you want details just email me and I will. I am scared still about a C-section. I hear recovery is hard. But haven't been through that, thank heavens! Good luck. Keep us up to date. Can't wait to hear about him.

I had a great time at the shower! I have no advice either because my babies were both in the 7 pound range. I am sure that you guys will do what is best and that the doctor will have your best interest at heart. Good Luck!!! We will be praying for you. See you in the morning.

I am sorry that I couldn't go. My in-laws were in town. And I have no advice, because, well, I only have a dog and I got him at the pet store.

Love the pictures and the new backround!

Good luck tomorrow! The best advice anyone ever gave me was, "remember, the first 6 weeks are horrendous and it gets better from there". Just focus on the light at the end of the tunnel.

Love the new background and I know how you feel. My kids both had HUGE heads (17cm and 19cm)and they were both c-section births. Morgan's was the hardest because I had no idea what to expect. Robert's was a breeze. My best advise is if you do have a c-section, stay on top of the drugs. The quicker you get up and going, the faster your body heals. I know it sounds silly, but it's the truth. And call me or email me if you have any questions or concerns. <3 Janet

Teresa! What a cute belly! You have no baby fat anywhere else! Seeing your face you don't even look pregnant! No fair! I am still trying to lose my last 7 lbs of baby weight. We'll see how that goes! Good luck with your baby! 9lbs 15 oz! Holy Cow! That baby needs to come out!
