Room Almost Cleared! (09/27/11)

As you all know, DH and I are moving into a bigger bedroom so we can share our room with the baby. We don't have the space for a nursery. Over the weekend we pretty much cleared out the bigger room. We were originally going to rip up the carpet and put down new flooring but we've changed our minds. As of now, we're looking for a futon to switch our old bedroom into an office/guest bedroom.

Right now we need to purchase a new bed frame, possibly one on wheels. We found a bed frame on wheels at sleepys.com for cheap. It also has brackets to add a headboard of our choice. We also need to get a box spring mattress. We're thinking about this one from sleepys.com.

Before we start moving into the bigger room we want to steam clean the carpets. We have a dog that likes to pee all over the house. *Rolls eyes* Once that's done we'll be moving into that room and we can finally set up the baby's furniture and sort through what we have for the baby already and what we need to get. I actually can't wait finish all of this.

Since I'm an organized/checklist kinda gal, I have a checklist of what needs to be done before the baby arrives. I'm going create a page for it on my blog after I post this blog. Check it out if you want! Have a great week everybody!

PS - I added another recipe to the "Recipes" page. Enjoy!

33 Weeks 4 Days! (09/20/11)

As of last Friday, the 16th, I turned 33 weeks along. As you can see the baby is about the size of a honeydew. Mmmm, honeydew! Baby is about 17.2 - 18.7" long and weighs 4.2 - 5.8 lbs. Yikes!

How far along? 33 weeks 4 days

How I'm feeling? Pretty good other than I'm getting quite uncomfortable. I tired pretty easily also.

Weight? So far I stand at a 25 lb. weight gain. My OBGYN told me I'm allowed to gain 40 lbs. total during my pregnancy but I can't allow myself to do that. My goal was to gain only 30 lbs. but we'll see how that goes.

How I'm changing? I'm very moody and cry easily. I've lost times how many times I've cried in the past week. It's all over stupid silly stuff non-the-less. My hair gets greasy, my skin is actually better pregnant than not pregnant, I'm geting stretch marks (hello new road map ass, thighs and hips!) and I'm geting cellulite on my thighs. Ew!

What I miss? I'd give anything for a malibu bay breeze or a glass of wine. I miss my normal energy level too. *Sighs*

Cravings? Right now I crave salads and fruits. Yum! I actually think I'm going to have a nice big juicy granny smith apple after I finish typing this out!

Food Aversions? Meat on the bone.

Highlights this week? I got my first unemployment check yesterday. Woohoo! I also packed my diaper bag, DH's diaper bag and the baby's bath caddy.

Stressed Out... (09/13/11)

My apologies for the lack of updates. I've been pretty busy lately. A few posts back I posted that I'll be losing my job at the end of August. Obviously that time has come and to be honest, this blog has been at the bottom of my priorities (as it should be). I'm trying to get my unemployment/disability pay in order, trying to get the house ready for Sophia's arrival, and not to mention we have family from Florida who are here to visit for 2 weeks.

I'm actually debating on letting this blog go. I'll leave it published but I just don't know if I have the time to keep updating it or not. I'm 32 weeks pregnant and things are getting hectic around here. I'd imagine it will be this way until I give birth and it'll intensify by atleast 10 once baby girl is here.

I just wanted to do a quick update and let you all know I'm still alive. Anyway, I gotta run. I have to make a few more phone calls for my unemployment/disability pay then hopefully I wont have to deal with that again until September 29th!

It's an Addiction! (09/03/11)

I can't stop stalking my registries. It's seriously an addiction and I need help. Is there a rehab for that?

DH and I went to our elective 4D u/s appointment yesterday and it was a success! She was sucking on her ankles (yes, her ankles!), poking herself in the eyes with her toes, sticking her tongue out at us, stretching and more. It's was amazing to see. We got the whole u/s on DVD so DH and I just finished watching it. I can't help but get teary eyed every time I watch it. I'll post a few pictures from the u/s tomorrow at some point.

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
