21w 5d Pics

This is the empty nursery. Found out today we won't be able to pick up the furniture till next weekend. They have to move it from their warehouse to the store and they won't be able to do it by this weekend. BULL if you ask me!
My toes... I need a pedi asap!

First bare belly shot. You can see my crazy birth mark below my belly button. It looks like liquid coming from my belly button. I feel like I look huge in these pics and I am just half way done... I am going to be a beast! LOL! I was laying down after school today and she was kicking like crazy. I put my hand on my belly and she kicked so hard it scared me. I actually jumped! DH felt her the other night. It was really neat. It's very light but he was able to feel it.

So pissed off!! LONG POST

Family can rock and family can suck. And right now they suck!
A few years ago when DH and I moved into our house my sister had furniture in her house that she needed to get rid of. It was my mom's furniture. This is the same bedroom set that I grew up in. Its really nice oak hardwood furniture. So being that DH and I had nothing to fill the spare bedroom we took it. I swore my mom said we could HAVE it. I don't barrow shit. Simply for the fact that I don't like being responsible if something happens to it and later on down that line have to hear about it for the rest of my life.

So my sister who lives down here (who is 10w PG) called to see if I could lend her the dresser and nightstand to that set to use for her 2 yr olds room. I hear my mom in the background yelling, "Thats MY furniture". I was livid and hung up on her. Note this sister hangs up on me once a month and freaks at the drop of a dime.

So an hour I call her back. And she says, "Oh mom was kidding about the furniture." My mom is flaky so I thought okay. I explained to my sister that if she would have asked a week earlier she could have used those pieces. But we just sold all the office furniture and all the crap that was in it is now in the dresser and nightstand.

So I call my mom a little while later. My dad answers her cellphone. I asked him why he is answering her phone... he never answers any phone that rings! He say that my mom is upset with me b/c I hung up on her... um no I hung up on Melissa (sister). Such bullshit. So she gets on the phone and she asks me what I am doing. I said "The guys just got done moving MY furniture." thinking if she was kidding then it would be funny... yea not at all. She flipped out telling me its her furniture and for me to get ready b/c when they move to GA (in 4 years) she will be taking it with her. I LOST IT! I never go off on my mom and I did.

I told her that she needed to come get it in the morning then and I don't want it in my house. My mom has done this to my two oldest sisters before with a lamp and another dresser. So I should have known better and made her put it in writing! DH was livid as well. I know it will all work itself out but it just bullshit.

This sister that lives down here is nicknamed "The LOVE child" in the family. I know if she wouldn't have asked this would have never been an issue. But because she is in need of it now I am an asshole and inconvenienced. I called her too and told her to come get it b/c apparently what Melissa wants, Melissa gets. Boy she didn't like that! LOL :)~

Anyways, this post is freaking LONG and I needed to get it all out. I am pretty upset that they spent all afternoon moving this effing furniture from the spare bedroom down to the den and now my mom is starting shit about it. I am just disappointed! :(

21 weeks- HOly movement!

I've been really feeling her move this week. The neatest thing was at school the other day. The kids have song folders and we practice singing/reading the songs and they LOVE it so they get really loud. Well apparently Lillian liked it too!! She was moving all over the place while they were singing. It was really cool.

We sold the furniture that was in the den which means the bedroom furniture in the nursery can be moved down. YAY! DH is going to have his buddy come over tomorrow to get that started. The bedding came in on Tuesday. It is so cute! I am scared to take it out of the package! :)

Shower Invitations

These are the shower invites my sister emailed me today. They match the nursery bedding perfectly! The shower itself isn't till July but she is getting a head start. I am super excited about starting the nursery. This weekend we are going to touch up paint in the den where the furniture that is the nursery right now will be moved. Doing small things here and there.
Starting to feel her move a lot more. Yesterday while sitting my rear on the couch ALL DAY doing lesson plans I really noticed it. And then again last night in bed. Its pretty damn cool! Very light movement but more then before.

Jessie's gift, Belly pic & Nursery bedding

Jessie sent me this adorable dress for Lillian! Even DH got all mushy when he saw it! Thank you Jessie SO much! I can't wait to take a picture of her in it! :)
Here is my latest belly pic. Tomorrow will be 20 weeks. It is starting to really hit me these days! I am really excited to meet her and see what she looks like!

This is the bedding we bought. I think it was possibly Bee who showed it to me forever ago and I loved it. So when we found out it was a girl & DH agreed he liked it we went ahead and ordered it. We are thinking about having someone come in and paint a cherry blossom tree in one corner in the nursery. One that will match the bedding. But we're still on the fence. I don't want it to be too much. So we will see once it arrives. Oh we got a call today about our furniture. The dresser/changer and the taller dresser are already in. So they are just waiting on the rest. That was much faster then I thought. Hopefully the rest comes in soon so we can start putting it all together!

Feeling MUCH better!

I saw the "hamburger" so its definitely a girl! :)
This ultrasound place was so cool. It had a spa feel to it and was really just a little hole in the wall. The room where they did the u/s they had a huge screen where you could watch everything. It was like being at the movies! And the room itself was huge too. So plenty of people could come with. The tech said we were lucky to get a great shot at the start because she went back a few times and she was all curled up. She didn't have her thumb in her mouth today. And was moving all around. We got a DVD of the whole thing. I've watched it 5 times already!! I love that I can pop it in and see her moving around in there! SO worth the $$. My mom told me to go ahead and order the bedding and she'll pay for it! YAY! So I'll be doing that soon. It's really starting to hit me these days. Especially watching her move around. During the past ultrasounds it was so cut and dry and wasn't pleasant at all. This was a whole different experience. We're going back May 27th for the 3D/4D. I am lmao right now... SIL just called to double check if it was still a girl! Haha! :)~

2nd BIG u/s set up!

I am such a dork! So the u/s tech's words have been running non stop through my mind, "I THINK its a girl." So I said eff it and made an appointment at a local u/s place to get a "Pink or Blue" u/s done tomorrow! Not wasting anytime! Its only $95 for a 2d to determine the sex. If for some reason baby still has her legs crossed I get to go back at no charge. So its totally worth it to me for the peace of mind! And if I want to go back for the 3d/4d u/s I get 15% off. Which we will probably do. So I am excited to see her (hopefully her) again! :)
Today is our 2 year Anniversary! Time is flying! And life is great!

Whoo Hoo Team Pink!

It's a GIRL! We are thrilled! DH wants here her right now! The first picture is the not so great money shot... its really small but as you can see no penis there! The second picture is her sucking her thumb! We have some names picked out. But some of you know that whole controversy! ;) Nothing new there. Can't wait to move the furniture out of the spare room and get the nursery furniture. We had friends in town all weekend. DH went to the Bahamas for the day yesterday with the boys fishing and I stayed here and laid on the beach all day with the girls. It was a great weekend! Back to the real world and lesson plans then off to the fam's house for Easter!

Yay for nursery furniture!

There it is! We decided to not go with white if Thursday's result is a girl. This picture does it no justice. DH and I got a wild hair up our butts and decided to drive 45 minutes from our house to go look at a set we LOVED online. Yeah we didn't love it once we got there but instead found this.  We didn't end up getting home till 10pm! Its simple which is how we like it! The price wasn't bad for everything we got too (everything in pic). The shorter dresser has the changer attachment on the top and then we also bought a night stand that isn't in this picture. I am excited. We finally decided on something! lol 
So now we get to look forward to Thursday's BIG u/s... and it seems to be taking forever! And then a NAME!

17w 5d Pic

I can't really believe I am almost 18 weeks! I think I am feeling movement. I feel something and haven't felt it before. I usually chalk everything up to gas but this is different. Feels like waves of movement. Next Thursday is the BIG day! Can't wait. I'm keeping my fingers crossed baby is cooperative! :)
