Before the Baby :)

OK, if you haven't already, you HAVE to check this out! My super cool friend Annie threw me a virtual baby shower - Annie's Virtual Baby Shower You can click there, or go to this website:

I'd love for you to come too :) Annie Rocks!

Well, I had a few things I wanted to post before the baby came and never got to... soooo....
I was in the hospital 4 days before Aashini was born, so we had to find ways to entertain ourselves :) Luckily lots of friends came to visit and we wern't too bored :)
My friends Preeti and Sophy came to visit... Look how HUGE I am!!!
Some great ladies here in the Capital threw Emily & I a baby shower... I was in the hospital though and totally missed it. After the shower, some of the girls came over and brought the shower to me :) Emily did a great blog post on the shower (the real one and the hospital one)- check it out: Emily's Blog on the Shower
Here's a pic of Gracey showing me a card she made me :)
And of course, Emily and I had to take a belly picture together! I'm sooooo huge! This was 2 days before Jellybean was born!
OK, so I knew that since a lot of my weight was swelling that I would lose a lot pretty fast, but in the last couple of days I have lost over 45 lbs!!! It's amazing! They say that giving birth is the only cure for pre-ecclampsia... I guess they're right!

I was showing Collin the blog and when we got down to the pics at the bottom and he saw you he said and I quote- "Look how skinny she is!!"

Okay, so you don't even look like you just had a baby! That's crazy that all your weight was baby and swelling! You'll have no problem shedding what's left--you already look great!
