How far along? 27 weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 20 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Werd.

Stretch marks? Thigh stretchies have increased. :(

Sleep: Not bad, but arms are falling asleep while I’m sleeping.

Best moment this week: PAINTING THE NURSERY! And getting the furniture – FINALLY.

Movement: Yes. Cervix kicks in the house. SO painful. I had no idea how much it could hurt.

Food cravings: Rainer Cherries.

Gender: Still thinking girl. (Although the room looks more boyish…)

Labor Signs: Lots o’ Braxton Hicks, probably forever.

Belly Button in or out? Barely innie.

What I miss: REAL wine. Three glasses of the fake stuff just didn’t cut it last night.

What I am looking forward to: Putting the crib together.

Weekly Wisdom: It takes much longer to paint a room thank one might think.

Milestones: Nursery is coming together!

*this week’s belly shot features our lone cat Boo-boo, nervously cleaning himself as usual.

A tease if you please.

You can look at all the new photos of the nursery on my flickr page. (The crib isn’t put together yet – I’ll add more pics with that when it’s done! Probably sometime later this week.)

Nursery Update, Part 2.

WE HAVE PAINTED WALLS! ::cheers and applause::

It took SO MUCH LONGER than I thought it would, but it’s done, and I love the color. My lovely friend Meredith suggested a color for the walls – and without hesitation I purchased a can and began prepping the walls. The color (Benjamin Moore’s “Gray Wisp”) finally went on the walls on Saturday, after the hubs rolled the primer on. It turned out really well. It looked like a greenish gray while wet, and now looks more of a bluish gray in some light…but will go VERY well with everything we have for the room.

We tried negotiating a pick up of the furniture this weekend, and it was turning into a huge ordeal, so we arranged to have everything delivered…tonight!! (I’M EXCITED – AGAIN.)

And yes (Shannon), I know I’m missing a photo from this past week. It’s too late now. :) BUT I will take one tonight to add to my 27 week post tomorrow, as well as the first peek at the not-so-finished nursery.

Nursery update.

Well, I received the rug in the mail that I ordered from Anthropologie for the ninja’s room, and needless to say, I wasn’t convinced that it was worth $300. Probably because this five feet in diameter rug came folded up. In a box. THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS. I was expecting a wool rug – thick and worthy of being rolled. But no. So, needless to say, I’ll be taking it back tomorrow before yoga. Thank GOD I can return it to a store so I can get my $$ faster.

Other than that…I just bought all painting supplies needed to start transforming the nursery. Primer, rollers, ceiling paint – you name it…I got it. When I got home, I took down the mini-blinds and curtains, and took down the shelves. Tomorrow, I’ll wipe down the walls and lay down the drop cloths…and Thursday after work, I’ll paint the ceiling and then prime the walls. Then Friday – the wall color goes up. Can you tell I’m excited? I’M EXCITED.

Our glider came in this week – so when we pick up the furniture on Saturday or Sunday…we’ll have almost all of the pieces in the room. At which point, I will sit in said glider and stare, and stare, and stare….

26 weeks.
