I feel huge! I feel like I'm ready to go any day now :)  A little over a month ago I posted a facebook status saying how fast the first two trimesters have gone and someone said well the last 3 months drag on!  Well not for me...I feel like it's right around the corner and I'm still so unprepared!  We are going to the doctor every 2 weeks and so far so good.  He kicks like crazy and moves all over the place, as I sit and type now I can see my belly moving.  It's the weirdest...yet best feeling.  He is especially active at night and lately in the mornings while I'm laying in bed.  I love laying in bed at night with both hands on my stomach just feeling his random movements, especially when he does a "long" kick and it feels like my hand is being pressed right against his little hand or foot :)  I found this photo on my phone and thought I would do a little comparison...

After, sorry no make-up and hair not done lol 3/4/2011
As far as I go, I almost passed out when I saw my weight at the last appointment.  I know, I know that you are suppose to gain weight but whoa...I wasn't expecting to gain this much.  But after cleaning out my closest this past week and looking at my old jeans I have plenty of motivation to get back to normal after this baby is here.  And I'm glad he will be here in the summer so I can take plenty of walks and workout outside.  My back is still killing me.  I try to stay off my feet as much as I can while at work but sometimes it's just not possible and sitting to watch tv only lasts for about 20 mins before I have to lay down.  Poor Brett has given me more back massages in the last month than in our entire relationship ;)  My hands pretty much stay swollen and my ankles are pretty sensitive to swelling as well.  Other than that lol I'm doing pretty well!
My left ankle is more swollen than my right
My sausages...and my fake ring because mine doesn't fit anymore!
In other exciting happenings, my Temple Photography basket sold for $400 at the auction!  I was sure that it would make $50 max (if that) so when Kristi texted me that it went for $400 I almost died.  I couldn't be happier with the result!
JCCC women's basketball team won today which sent them to Nationals! Taylor is pretty stoked and she had a great game today, wish I was able to go and support her in Illinois but I can't leave work :( Good luck ladies!
As far as Maisy goes, you can see in the photos below she has made her way onto the couch.  We both vowed when we got new furniture she wouldn't be allowed on...and we stuck with it for a little over a year.  However we started to notice paw prints on the microfiber showing up while we were at someone had been making herself very comfortable after we left everyday.  So eventually we just put a blanket down and allowed her up.  It just kills her if she can't be laying on us or next to us...and apparently neither Brett nor I can say no to her sweet face anymore :)  

I think that's about it for now!

Oh my gosh! That's great about the basket! And I know this may not help- but doesn't it make you feel good that you can STILL fit into a shirt you fit in back in November?! And you're cute pregnant, not house pregnant!
