Doctors App Update

So I guess my diastolic blood pressure (the bottom #) is a little high. It was 87. She didn't seem too concerned and said it was like that at my 12w appointment. She checked my swelling which isn't bad at all and said my urine was fine. Plus I haven't gained any weight in 4 weeks. So basically she wants to keep a close eye on it. I go back on Monday, she said that way they can do the Strep B test and check the blood pressure. 
I asked the doctor if she could tell what position she was in yet. So she poked and moved around my belly. Once she got low I could feel something and it was kinda painful, she assumed it was her head. So that's a good sign, if the doctor was right!! Maybe that explains all the jabs I've been getting in the ribs! Love em though!! 
I am trying NOT to freak out right now. I went into school today and cleaned... now I am sneezing like crazy. And hoping that it is just from the dust and I'm not getting sick! Say a prayer for me!!
Went to the breast feeding class tonight. She was great and had lots to explain. She is there Monday- Friday and says that once LO comes she will be there to help. I will take full advantage of her! ;) 
Other then feeling uncomfortable from my growing belly, being a total slack ass and sneezing, I am feeling great! I can't wait to meet Lillian and see what she looks like!

34 weeks & Key Largo trip

6 weeks left!!! Ekkkk!
We went to Key Largo for the weekend to get away before Lillian comes. It was great to just get away and not have Internet, dogs to walk, parents calling, dishes/laundry to do, or anything that happens in our every day lives.
The weather on Saturday was crappy so we spent most of the afternoon lying around talking about Lillian.
We rented a Jeep Wrangler for the weekend (DH has always wanted one so this gave him an opportunity to drive it and make sure he'd like it, YES he loved it!!) We decided to jump in and drive south. We got to Key West and the sky cleared up a bit. I love the atmosphere down there, so laid back!! Sunday was much better for the first part of the day. We were able to get out and enjoy the pool before heading back home. The bed where we stayed was HORRIBLE. Hard as a rock so I barely got any sleep! Boo to that!
Otherwise the getaway was wonderful! I felt like it gave us a chance to sit back and enjoy each other! :)

Lillian's Shower @ 32 weeks

Oh my goodness I have the best family ever! They put together a great shower and I am so blessed to have them! Between the all the food and decorations it was amazing! The picture up top was before I started opening the gifts.
This picture is a quilt my mother hand made for us! She is so special and to have something she took so much time & energy to make means SO much.
Another smaller quilt my mom made. She said Lillian can use it as a security blanket. So sweet!!
This is a picture of a Christening dress my MIL made out of my wedding dress. I asked her when we found out we were PG to make something out of my dress as a keep sake. And when we found out Lillian was a girl I asked her if she'd be able to make a Christening dress. She said it would be too difficult, but she has a friend who helped her and this was the outcome! So cool!!

My mom & sisters
Opening the gifts!

Cute decorations!!

The yummy cake! It said "Welcome Lillian" on it. Love how they matched the cherry blossom theme!!

We are SO incredibly blessed and got everything we could possibly need. I originally thought we got TONs of 3-6mo clothes but after just going through it all we got a little bit of everything. Toys, necessities, bigger items (swing, travel system, pack n play, boppy seat). I couldn't ask for more!
