I started a new blog: Worth the Wait.

I thought that it was time to start a new blog for this new phase of life that we are starting. One that I can share with my family and friends and all of you. This blog has been my sounding board.... it has been my "safe" place where I can go and vent and share. It has meant so much to me to have all of you as followers and I hope that you follow me to my new blog.

I wish I could have just continued this blog but there are a lot of things on here that I dont want our family etc to read and know. I am not hiding how we got to where we are but my raw feelings that I voiced on this blog could probably hurt some feelings and that isnt what I intended so a new blog was the answer.

So here is the new URL:

Updates Galore!

I have been a bad blogger again and I am so sorry! I have a lot that I need to update so I am going to try and sum it all up here.

First, here are my 27, 28, and 29 week belly shots!

27 weeks:

28 weeks:

29 weeks:

Secondly, I have seen the high risk MFM a couple times since I posted. I was diagnosed with Polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid) and they were looking to find out why. They didnt see any issues with Foster's kidneys, stomach or swallowing. They sent me for my 1 hour glucose test early and IT CAME BACK NORMAL!!!!!! No GD for me =) So they dont know why it is so high. We went back for another scan at about 29 weeks and the fluid level was a little bit better but still high.

At the 29 week scan at the MFM we found out that Foster weighs 3pounds 7 ounces!!!!! He is a bog boy and his head was measuring a ittle over 2 weeks ahead (ouch).

Thirdly, I had some baby showers since I have posted!!!! So here are the details:

First first shower was May 22nd and was thrown by my best friend Kelli, friend Chelsea, and friend Meghan! It was my "friend" shower. It was so nice and everything was perfect. It was at Kelli's house and it was so great to see all my friends and celebrate Foster. It was a really surreal day because we were celebrating a baby that a year ago I thought may never be. What a difference a year can make, huh?! Here are some pictures from the shower:

Wedding Linky Party!

Justin and I got married on May 2nd 2009! We celebrated our 2 year anniversary a little over a month ago but we have been together for 8 years.... highschool sweethearts <3

**Scroll to the bottom of my post to link up and share some fun details of your wedding day!**

Here are our Wedding ABCs...

We invited about 200 guests and ended up having like 165 or 170.

I had 8 bridesmaids, 7 bridesmaids and 1 junior bridesmaid! My maid of honor was one of my absolute best friends ( and I am going to be her maid of honor on july 16th this year!!!) and the other bridesmaids are all very close/ best friends and my junior bridesmaid was my cousin who I adore!

I dont know that we have any pictures of the food!!! Oops. We served a duet plate of Lasagna (Justin's family is italian) and a Chicken breast with garlic cream sauce. Also garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli. The food was really good and we loved it! Here is a picture of the place settings at the head table:

Our cake was from The Suisse Shop and it was to die for!!! We designed it ourself and they made it even more wonderful than we expected it to be. We got so many compliments on how our cake looked and how good it was. We have 3 different layers of different flavors/fillings.

I also got a Groom's Cake for Justin that I gave to him at the rehearsal dinner. It was made by The Suisse Shop also. We are both Penn State Alumni and we love beer pong so this cake just made perfect sense!

The dress was really important to me. I knew that I wanted LACE! I went to tons of stores and tried on dresses but in the end I got the first dress that I tried on =) I was down to 2 dresses that I was deciding between and we kept going back and forth to the two stores and this is the one that I chose (and Im so happy that I did):

We got engaged on April 10th 2008, my 23rd birthday. Justin and I had been together for 5 years so he knew that he couldnt just take me out on a normal night or I would know that something was up. We went out to dinner at Smith and Wollensky's with my parents then headed home and when we got home he had wrapped my engagement ring up inside of my birthday present (a vera bradley purse).
(out with friends the next night celebrating)

This was my other favorite part! I planned my wedding around my flowers because I knew just what I wanted. Light pink and white PEONIES! I love them, they are delicate and have a vintage appeal that I just cant resist!

There were 8 groomsmen, 6 close friends of the groom, the grooms cousin, and a junior groomsman that was my cousin.

We went on a cruise to Aruba, Bonaire, Dominica, Grenada, and St. Thomas!

I wore flip flops because the high heels that I got to wear made my dress too short. I am 5'8 and apparently that is the height my dress was made for =)

Our reception was a golf club and had a gorgeous balcony that overlooked the course and the sunset!
