Last night my best friends threw me a surprise baby sprinkle for our little baby boy who is expected to arrive on July 13th!
We had all planned to get together for a family BBQ at my friend Megan’s house so I had no clue what my friends had in store.
Now lets back up a bit… My week started off great! I have been feeling amazing, I’ve had good energy and I was cruising through the week. Then at my doctor appointment Wednesday morning I was told I was making some progress at 1cm 50% effaced. That’s great news that my body is changing, but we don’t want him to come until I am full term at 37 weeks next Wednesday. So the bad news is bad news that I can’t exercise and I had to find subs for all my classes until my next appointment. I totally understand that I can’t workout but part of me thought I was going to keep trucking along. Again pregnant women are NOT SUPERHUMAN and I know that but lets just pretend that we can do it all right?
I spent most of the day relaxing and trying not to move which was a bit stressful but I kept thinking about not wanting my baby to be in the NICU if he’s born before 37 weeks so that helped me to stay put for the remainder of the day.
Ava went to bed around 645pm which wasn’t part of the plan last night since she was supposed to come to my friend Megan’s house for the BBQ. Marc decided to stay home with her and I headed out around 7pm.
When I got to Megan’s everyone was in her backyard. When I turned the corner they yelled “surprise” and of course I was surprised!!
I knew I was going to hang out with my friends but what was the surprise for???? It was a baby sprinkle that I never expected and I couldn’t help but smile and be so thankful for my thoughtful friends.
They had a clothesline of little baby onesies and bibs plus tons of foods.
I was completely shocked and I didn’t know what to say.
I felt bad that I made Marc stay home with Ava so I called my mom to have her come over to watch Ava while she was sleeping so Marc could come enjoy a beer and the shower with our friends!
It was the most perfect night and celebration of our baby boy.
The girls spoiled him with gifts and I’m still at a loss for words. I didn’t expect any of it but it truly made Marc and I feel loved and grateful for such amazing friends.
The girls know me too well and when I told them we haven’t done anything to the baby’s nursery they picked out some room decor on top of all the clothes. It truly made this pregnancy journey complete!
Now all we need is this little boy to arrive (anytime after 37 weeks!!)
I love you girls, thank you so much xoxo
