September 21 I celebrated my 27th birthday. I had prepared myself for it to suck! I was put on strict bed-rest the week before, so I was ready to enjoy the couch for my big day! I had my 31 week appointment that afternoon and I got released from the strict part and was just advised to take it easy! That was the first great news, and we got a great ultrasound picture of the babe who had been hiding through each appointment... the day was looking up!
I spent the day resting thanks to some contractions that were coming and going. Chase worked later than normal that night. So I wasn't expecting anything!! But he came through with some great surprises! He got me a cake complete with candles! And got me some great gifts! He bought me the book "The Help" (I highly suggest this to all! It was a great read.), he also got me the Adele cd (love, love, love it!), and he got me one of those amazing pregnancy pillows (not just a body pillow, it's 100 times better!!).
It was a perfect night! Probably one of my most memorable birthdays yet. Thank you Chase for making me feel so special and loved! I love you.
