Spring Showers

Spring is such a beautiful time of year and the weather has been mostly temperamental. My question is....

Doesn't Spring=Babies?
Apparently mother nature doesn't think so. I know I may still have a week but at my appointment onWednesday Dr. Judd said this baby isn't coming till at LEAST my due date of April 6th. Even worse he is taking the entire Easter week end off of April 9th through the 13th so if I don't go on my own I can't be enduced until he gets back on April 14th!! And my mom just told me my family will out of town the 13th through the 15th!! I hope to prove him wrong but if not my family will miss out on the first grand baby! I don't think she will end up going if it comes down to that but who knows :(
I am ready to bring this little one into the world! Yesterday Brett and I went for a half hour speed walk and did several other "activities" that supposedly help induce labor. No luck here!
At the temple back on March 13th- Sheridan Robbie and Scott Christensen's wedding. It was a little chilly but over all a beautiful day. Congrats to both of them! They are perfect for each other.

Family is the BEST!

We have been spending most of our time at Brett's parents house along with everyone else in the Brady family. We all have dinner most nights (I don't have the energy to cook any longer) and it really keeps my mind off how large I am. We play fun games and watch all of our favorite shows. It's like a party there every night! A BIG thank you to Lynn who is always such a great listener and both Brittany and Lynn who cook every night for well more people than live at the Brady home. You guys are the best!

Hangin with the fam.

Cute Madi!! She loves Brett and always wonders where "Bet" is. She is adorable!

Hallie loved her first ride this year on Brett's motorcycle. She hung on extremely tight but loved every minuet. Check our Hallie's face and her legs wrapped around Brett. She is so cute! Don't worry we only went down the street and back:)

Brady Family Shower and some close friends
Thank you to everyone who made my shower so fun. Britttany, Carrie, Chelsey and Lynn all helped throw me a great shower with fun games and GREAT food. Once again I have great family! Thanks everyone!

Me, Karly and Kristin

Our Whirlwind of Life

My Glamor Shoot

This is just a sneak peak of the maternity photos that our good friends Karly Turner and Lori Hansen took for us. More to come once we get them back edited.
Second Glamor Shoot
This picture is 100% less glamorous than the first. I have been in the hospital twice in the past month. Once at 32 weeks I went into pre-term labor. It was Sunday and all day I had the worst cramp like tightening up my back and down my legs. It would make my face go bright red. I didn't know what conractions feel like so I just kept putting off saying anything. Once we had dinner they were just getting worse so we decided to call the doctor. She told me to go straight to Labor and Delivery! When we got to the hospital my contractions were 3-4 min apart. I felt so stupid for going in because I didn't want to be one of those women that goes to Labor and Delivery a million times. The nurse told me because I was only 32 weeks it was a very good thing we came in and told me if it happened again we should come back immidiately. I was not dilated at all nor effaced so they gave me a shot of morphine and some other drugs to stop my contractions. I was out for a full 24 hours! The morphine was awesome. They instructed me to take it very easy and every time I felt a contraction to lay down (hard to do when I am still trying to work).
My second trip was a week later. I had been having contractions for two days and finally Saturday night Brett and I went in. It turned out I had a bladder infection that was causing me to contract. They hooked me up to an IV and pumped me full of antibiotics to stop the infection. It was a relief that we found the problem. I still have contractions here and there but not near as bad as the ones I had for that week. We are so greatful we are going to have this baby when he is supposed to come.
BABY UPDATE: We had our ultrasound and his fluids are perfectly normal. He is just measuring BIG. Watch out comes a 10 pounder!!! J/K I hope NOT!!!
Ryan Turns 17!!
This is Ryan's birthday cobbler which was so hot inside when we were stupid enough to put the candles in they started melting from both ends. It was super funny! We had a tasty wax and peach cobbler!
Jill's gift to Ryan was awesome. She gave him $2 that she had saved up for him. She was so excited to give him her present.

Brett and I taught our family how to play scum. We played for hours. It was a fun birthday for Ryan!
Shower Time!
Thank you to everyone who came to support. This was my family shower on my side. A few of my co-workers were able to be there as well. Thanks EVERYONE!!
Lovely face right- ha ha.
My cousin Kelly was unable to come up from St. George but sent with her twin sister Karen a newly started first baby book for our little guy. Thanks Kelly!!!
All the little girls would "AWWWWW' over every little outfit.
