Starting the Nursery

John put the crib together today! Of course we should have painted first but I was so excited about seeing the crib put together. So, in a few weeks we'll paint the walls a light green. I am going to make curtains, too. John picked out the ocean theme! I thought that was sweet. My dogs thought the mobile (which has little stuffed sea creatures on it) was their new toy and tried to steal it out of the room. I am excited about the nursery coming together.

Baby news: I am now 22 weeks and he is moving a lot! Some days he is more active at night but not so much that it keeps me awake. I notice the punches and kicks getting stronger each week. Some days I have a lot of energy and others I have to fight to keep my eyes open at work. All in all everything is going well!

19 weeks and growing

Today we had another doctor's appointment and had a great experience (they haven't all been pleasant). We had a sonogram done today that told us what our baby's sex is. IT'S A BOY!!! John and I are so excited! I've gained 5 pounds since the last doctor's appointment and am starting to have trouble reaching my toes! See the pictures below!

Isn't he cute? I can't wait to meet him! This weekend we are going to register, that should be fun. Now it's time to think about names and such. I also have to search for pants that fit. I have been eating a lot of sour things. Today I discovered this candy that is the most sour candy I have ever had. Tears came out of my eyes!

So, last week I realized that I can feel the baby moving! I noticed that after most every meal I could feel little taps. Over the weekend I rested my hand on my belly for a while and noticed that I could feel them on my fingers, too! It's amazing. I picture the baby swimming around in there. Today there was a lot of movement in the morning, so much, that it made me stop and laugh out loud! This week I am 18 weeks and officially in my 5th month (wow!). My midsection is growing rapidly and my pants are on their last leg. I really have to try hard to reach my shoes to tie them and noticed it's harder to climb stairs. Cravings: salty and sour things! I got some pucker pals (a generic version of sour patch kids) and they are great. I am trying to hunt down some sour skittles now. Next week is the next doc visit and John and I can't wait!

A friend made me this baby sling that you can wrap around yourself in many different ways and it's wonderful! I think it will be a daily staple in my wardrobe. I think we'll register in a week and a half, how exciting. Goals: trying to get in some leisure reading done before baby arrives because I am thinking I won't have time or energy for it...organize closets, drawers and least get a walk in daily...

Check back next week for a post about the doc appointment!
