Baby Shower & last week of school

My last day of work was November 1st. When I was pregnant with Parker, I worked past my due date. This is a different pregnancy. I have gestational diabetes and have to do 4 glucose tests per day and administer an insulin shot every night. I also have had low fluid around the baby and have to go to 2 appointments per week for non-stress tests and ultrasounds. My doctor and I thought it would be best for me to take off work early to get more rest and stay off my feet. He put me on modified bedrest. It is great being home. Much less stress and I'm feeling more ready for a second baby.

My awesome 5th grade team threw me a baby shower before I left. Isn't that diaper cake so cute?! I got an infant car seat (Parker's was a hand-me-down that was 7 years old), diapers, a new bottle system, clothes, and many other neccessities.
