So I am now officially beyond the halfway mark of pregnancy and it is hard to believe most of the time that there is a little baby growing inside of me. The thought of that miracle is both amazing and weird.
(not our baby but a 3-D image compliments of babycenter.com)
We have been blessed by having 2 other couples that we know going through their first pregnancy as well! One baby is due August 1st and the other September 23rd. We are expecting our little wee one November 5th- so hopefully we will learn a little bit from each of their experiences in advance of our own.
I have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far and I am immensely thankful! My first trimester was pretty uneventful, with my main symptom being exhaustion. Weeks 10-12 I was nauseous at night, though not throwing up. Unfortunately the worst week of that was while in San Diego visiting my husband’s family.
I continued running for the first 10 weeks but was required to stop by the broken pelvis, which is still not healed!!!! Frustrating.
I already feel like I have gained too much weight, though my doctors say I am perfectly on track. Unfortunately the thorn in my side that I struggle with has always been weight & eating issues so pregnancy will have to help me get over it. I want absolutely ZERO photos taken of me until after 4 months post partum!!!! My two friends that are pregnant too are very thin and look cute pregnant (think Kelly Ripa pregnant-like). I need some fat friends! LOL. But hey, Kate Hudson gained a little too much and she’s doing ok now!
I felt the baby move a few weeks ago- a little fluttering feeling that just doesn’t feel like anything you’ve ever felt before. I wonder if I’ll be able to figure out what the baby is moving at some point.
Right now we are slowly working on getting nursery projects moving. The computer set up will be going to the basement office this weekend as will the rest of the office/ guestroom furniture.
I have been trying to figure out which fabric I want to use to make the curtains & bedding with- and I am having such trouble! I found these three coordinates that I really like, but I am not sold on them yet. Our house is small- a 2 bedroom 1 story condo so all of the rooms need to somewhat match. The color theme of the house is generally browns and coffee house colors. I though that the purple and teal would still be modern, yet feminine. Plus the fabrics could easily transition to a child’s room OR a craft room curtains for me.
Any favorite fabric online stores?
