26 weeks

26 weeks... can't believe almost into 3rd tri. Getting excited and anxious to see her! SIL had lost her mucus plug on Friday night so we are excited to see Alexa too.

There is the nursery which is acting like a storage room right now. Everything that was given to us gets dumped up there for the time being. We got in touch with the delivery company and will be getting the furniture sometime Wednesday. YAY! So excited! So I took all the hand me downs and started washing them so that I can get some what "organized" once the furniture gets here. Its all so tiny & cute!

I am so ready for the school year to be OVER! 3 more days with the kids then on Tuesday of next week I will officially be done! I really want to stay busy this summer and not sit around and get a big as a tent! :)

WHAT the heck?!!

For some reason I can't upload pics. It pops up with an error message and isn't working! UGH!

Anyways, DH got a call today saying all our furniture was in! YAY!! I can't wait for it to be here. So this time next week we should be set. Then that means I can call the lady who is coming to paint the cherry blossom tree in the corner. And get the clothes (hand me downs) washed and put away. We have got so much hand me downs. So far we have lots of clothes, bouncy seat, swing, bathtub, play mat, sleep nest (portable sleep thing for when they are tiny), breast pump, pack n play, exersaucer, jumping seat that hangs in the door, diaper champ and lots of other various toys. It's crazy! I still registered for most of these things. If we get them great... then the used stuff can go to my moms house. If not we will figure out what we need to bring back or return and keep the used stuff.

Feeling her move lots more in different parts like up by my ribs. I totally ate shit at work this week. Right in the main hallway of the office. Water was splattered down the whole freaking hallway. Luckily I landed on my right knee... hurt like a bitch but Lilly was fine! Everyone was flipping out. I was more scared then anything b/c I never saw it coming. The end of the year is such a PITA. We have to take everything off our walls even if we aren't moving classrooms. Why you might ask... NO idea! I tried taking down what I could today but DH is going in with me to get the rest off the walls. Lots of paperwork and returning books, and resources... also known as waddling my tubby ass around the campus looking for people to sign off on my "checklist" that HAS to be done before we leave.
I plan on using comp time when SIL has Alexa. If she doesn't go into labor on her own by Wed 6/3 then she will be induced. She is getting nervous. I told her to let me know and I'll do whatever she needs. Okay this is turning out to be a LONG freaking post! Need to figure out what is going on with this error code when trying to upload pics!

25 weeks

Can't believe its 25 weeks... time is ticking. I am just now starting to get over this cold. My nose is still stuffy but nothing like it was before. So glad DH hasn't caught it! Speaking of DH. He has been great. He took really good care of me while I was sick. Not complaining of the laundry basket that was over flowing or about wearing one pair of jeans 3times in one week with out being washed. Gross I know but I did nothing all week as far as cleaning and laundry! He is really wonderful and I couldn't ask for more! He is hopefully leaving his 2nd job (that he does on weekends) come the end of June. He has worked his tush off and deserves to have his weekends again. If need be he can go back to make the extra $ but thats only if we get in a bind.
We ended up registering last weekend at BRU and I also started one at Target to give people options. BRU is about 20 minutes from here and some people don't like the drive. I was shocked to see (thanks to E's good eyes) that someone already bought our travel system and bouncy seat from BRU... someone is on the ball! We also bought a glider at Walmart. It matches the rest of the nursery furniture perfect. It wasn't expensive and will get the job done. Speaking of nursery furniture. We are still waiting to hear from the store about the night stand and bed rails. Thats all that we're waiting on. So DH said last night that if the night stand isn't here by the end of June we will schedule them to deliver everything else and once those two things get in we will make the drive down to get it. He said he wants the furniture before my shower (July 11th) which I totally agree with him on! So that's exciting!
We haven't set it in stone but I am 98% sure we are going to use Paige as her middle name. So it will be Lillian Paige. It is the only middle name that keeps coming back to me. Ohhh I almost forgot SIL has 2 weeks left. She is 1 cm dilated... it is going to be so fun seeing Alexa and seeing how the family handles the whole situation! lol :)

WHAT... no more u/s!

I went to the doctor today and of course asked when or if we would get anymore u/s and he said no unless the baby is measuring too big or small. :(
Boo to that! Heard the heartbeat which is always amazing! He measured my belly which was a first and said I am measuring right on track. I am only up 7lbs which is surprising with all the bagels & donuts I've eaten the last few weeks from Dunkin Donuts! I go back June 16th and have to do the glucose test a week before that appointment. Then after the June 16th appointment I start going every 2 weeks for check ups. I asked him about this stupid head cold I have and he said it just has to run its course... didn't want to hear that! But whatever. I will throw a fit if I still feel like shit come 2 weeks from now!
Besides that things are good. Counting down the last days of school... 10 more to go!

24 weeks

Finally a picture taken by DH! I can't believe I am 24 weeks. Still feeling her move a lot which is really neat. I am getting a little concerned about my weight. I think I am up something like 8-9 lbs and so I am trying to be really careful what I am putting in my mouth. Everyone says enjoy it while you can... my thought on that is that I won't be enjoying working it OFF so why do that to myself now! I don't want to have to kill myself after she gets here trying to loose weight (weight I had before she was even in there) and so I am going to now try to really buckle down. Okay enough on that!
We haven't registered yet and that leaves us with next weekend. We are 100% going to get it done. DH for some reason is not that into the whole idea. Probably because he knows me so well and knows how extremely indecisive I am! I suck at picking out anything! And honestly I am not that excited about it either for that fact! I'm such a PITA! :)
A few more weeks till the 3d/4d ultrasound... can't wait to see her again!

23 weeks

I feel like my belly hasn't changed much since last week so I will spare everyone with the belly pics! I've been sick the last few days and it still is lingering. What a pain in the ass. I had a fever so the doc put me on a zpack. Its helping but I am still not 100%. Lillian is doing great. Kicking like crazy. SIL came over to watch a movie last night and she is 36 weeks... she is so ready! Little Alexa was moving her belly all over the place. It was nuts! Besides that nothing much is new. Kinda boring as usual!
