#1 The CRIB
We got the crib in, and Yup, we ordered it from Walmart (k-mart) haha.....Anyways, that comes as a big shock to me, because my hubby HATES that place!! After some price convincing and reading tOnS of reviews, I got him on board. He set it up the day it came in, and it looks great, it's very sturdy, and was priced wonderfully for my taste/budget. I just couldn't justify spending 400 bones on a crib...yowsa! So here's the picture and it'll be awhile before there is any bedding on it.
#2 Third Trimester!!
I am officially on the last third of my pregnancy and it so exciting that I have less than 90 days on my little ticker! It has felt like it's gone by pretty fast so far and I'm hoping that trend stays. I started feeling pretty tired since about a week and a half ago and I'm sure that will only progress. I had my last monthly appt. today and then it's down to every two weeks!
My favorite things have been:
*The ongoing pregnancy excuse to do whatever I want :)
*My ability to continue working without any preggo related issues
*Feeling little man do his warm ups in the morning
*Watching my belly move around all weird like!
*How just the thought of all the different things coming up in our lives have really strengthened Jared and I as husband and wife
*Ultrasounds and Dopplers at my appointments
*All the cute boy clothes
*How amazing my husband has been to me for the last 6 months and how excited he is to be a dad!
*Dreaming about this great little guy that I can't wait to snuggle and kiss and spoil!
The not-so wonderful things: (but they're worth it!)
*horrid back pain
*the ridiculous leg cramps from hell that strike at 1am!!!
*my boobs are getting huge and not in a good way!
*swollen feet by about 4pm :(
*1 million+ bathroom trips a day
*headaches, oh the headaches
*strange people at the grocery store that feel inclined to rub my ever growing bump!
Yep, pregnancy has it's ups and downs, but I really have enjoyed it all, just thinking about holding that little man in my arms in less that 3 months makes it all so SO worth it!!
28 weeks! Yes that is a pile of laundry in the background that i ignored for 3 days, and Yes, those are Jared's pajama pants!
