A shopping list

Happy Sunday!

As my husband and are just about set up in our new home, we matter how you move (wit movers or by yourself) you always end-up misplacing items. Of course sometimes it's because the item we are looking for gets thrown away.

So now we have decided that this week will be devoted to getting the items we need. Which include a broom. Right now our tile floors feel so dirty under my feet. Along with the broom with need other cleaning supplies which to me means this once we get all the cleaning supplies we need.

Yes, clean all the things including Winston, who had a bath the other day. He is pretty good with baths. Yet he needs them more and more, mainly because he has a nice new yard with pine trees and the pine tree sap and needles which he loves to roll around in. Why...I don't know? I guess it is a puppy thing.

22 weeks!

Today I am 22 weeks. Below the picture is from 2 different days. So how do I look?

Are you ready...The baby is getting nice a big, 10.5 to 11.8 inches. The size of a papaya, spaghetti squash or  baseball mitt (which the baby could be that size for the next 2 weeks) . My baby is almost a pound too!

He/she can hear voice and music and other noises that are outside the womb now. I wonder if that means that my baby is listening to the spice girls with me that I listen too when I clean? His/her little face is fully formed (and I get a sneak peak of that face on Monday!) Seedling is sleeping now about 12-14 hours a day and when he/she isn't sleeping, I'm getting kicked right below my belly button and my left side.  The baby also has eyebrows!  I wonder how the facial expressions look?

Symptoms for me: Still sick, still tired, oh and I have found that I need my inhaler more. Let's see, I have also been having some head aches and lower back pain. According to my apps and books, I might get some stretch marks starting now...we will see how that goes. 

Any updates/ purchase/ other news : The new apartment is slowly coming together. I'm super excited because I can now exercise!!!!!  I've gained some weight (Which is great) and I got to hear the baby's heart beat at this last appointment (150) 

Gender guesses: So for the past few weeks everyone has said boy, boy, boy. Me, I have no clue, sometimes I dream boy, sometimes I dream girl, sometimes I dream monkey or dog or alien baby. But now, I'm having people say girl. What do you think?

Fall decorating

Who is excited that it's fall?  I know I am. I also know that by the end of this busy, busy week...all will be set in my life (hopefully).

1. By Sunday night I want to be out of all the boxes and have everything done.
2. Starting next week I want to think about how to decorate for fall.
3. On Wednesday I have a doctors appointment....I'm hoping that starting in October we can start to get stuff for the baby, or at least register.
4. I'm hoping for a frost since my allergies out here in the country are going crazy.

Anyways, here are some ideas I would like to be able to do...I don't know if I can do them, we will have to see.

The Cottage Market is a great blog to check out. I really like and all the ideas that they have.

Fabric on the cool would this be in the nursery?

Pumpkins for fall? Even if we can't hang them on the door, I think having some outside could be fun. 

I for sure want to do this. Inside and out!

What do you all think, especially now that I'm back in the game.

Happy Friday!

Whoo hoo! I'm so happy it's Friday, what about you. today is a busy, busy day. I need, NEED, to finish unpacking. I know people say it's okay, you're pregnant, you have a cold, you need to rest. But I just want to stop living out of boxes!

Sorry about my rant/vent.  But I am looking forward to some thing to do once the new home is unpacked. 

1. Decorating for fall
2. Getting the baby's room ready.
3. Feeling like an accomplished adult. 
4. Having people over (I need to make friends first though)

21 weeks and our computer broke

Somehow, during the move, our laptop must have fell.  The inside of the screen is cracked. Ugh...just what we need.  But the move is going alright! We are almost done unpacking boxes, and I have realized...the next move we make I better not be pregnant. Mainly because I was so sick, that I had to leave Jeffrey in charge of packing. While....he doesn't pack how I like too (I like to color code and keep everything from the same room in the same box). But he is my husband and I love him

Now onto my 21 week update:

I will post the picture a little later.

Baby is the size of a pomegranate or the size of an 80's Fanny Pack. (Wow I haven't thought of those for a long time) The baby has grown 4 inches this week!

Symptoms: Still super tired, still sick, and now I'm starting to get some pain in my lower back going down into my right leg. It is also getting harder to get comfortable at night for sleeping.

No new baby purchases yet...Maybe soon. We will see.

Gender: Let me hear it, what do you think?

Today marks the day! I'm halfway baked!

So, the baby is the size of a banana, or the size of whoopee cushion (if you know what those are)
The baby is about 10 oz and 6.5 inches long. 
This week, the baby has taste buds! That's exciting! This baby also like to be by my bladder I found out and kick it. Especially at night or when I'm sleeping. 

So symptoms: I'm still super tired, but now I can go about 24-48 hours without throwing up! I still have morning sickness just not as bad. I haven't experienced anything else though...maybe I will in time. I have been having weird maybe that is a sign. 

We move to our new place this weekend and I'm super excited to be able to buy baby stuff. We haven't bought anything yet, but now I'm thinking we might want too. 

Gender predictions: All my family is still on the boy route, and I still have no feeling what so ever. So what do you all think?

19 weeks, 21 more to go

Good Thursday Morning,

There will be no "bump" picture today. Since I am doing this while on the road.

So to start:

Baby is the size of a Mango or for Dads the baby is now the size of a square tissue box, (which seems so much bigger than a Mango) and is about 8.5 oz.
The baby now has hair on his/her head and is developing the 5 senses.  The white coating called Vernix has started to develop, the baby is moving around. Once in a while, I can feel little flutters, so I think the kid must be kicking.

Symptoms: Let's see...I still have some morning sickness, (It's not too bad just once or twice a day now) and I'm still super tired. My asthma has kicked it up to high gear and  my feet has started to hurt. Otherwise, nothing else.

Gender Prediction: Still  have no clue. Right now my family thinks the baby is going to be a boy, so they have already given "him" a nickname based on what his name will be if he is a boy. I guess for that one needs cravings to tell.... so meat, chocolate and that's about it.

Oh and I followed my doctors orders yesterday and had a cheese burger. If that isn't high in calories than I don't know what is.
