Nursery Part 1

So we are making progress on the nursery! This room was our office/catch all and it was a mess! I had all this teaching stuff that "I might use again someday".... GONE! If you want to see some of the scary before pictures, scroll down a few posts.

So our color scheme is going to be be blue and yellow. I know blue is traditionally a boy color but I have always loved these colors together and if it is a girl, I can put purple and pink things in there and it will be fine :) So we (I mean Blake) got the walls painted and some of the big furniture in place. Of course it looks kinda empty now but I will post more pictures once the curtains go up and we get the bedding in and all that jazz. The room will probably still look kind of bare until the baby comes because there are several things (wall hangings, etc.) that I'm waiting to buy until we know the gender.

Room all taped up and all the furniture in the middle.

The other 3 walls are a very light blue. The dresser will end up also being the changing table.

We are so glad to have the majority of the work done! It was hard to find time and energy to make myself work in there and now that I'm in my third trimester, a lot of the work was left to Blake.

And now for some more pictures :)

28 weeks

31 weeks
So of course I'm definitely bigger. The comments I get are starting to be really funny because I hear about how big I am from some including a coworker who won't stop asking if I am having twins to other who say how little I am. I honestly don't care about the size of the baby or me, as long as he/she is healthy and growing :)

So this little one is moving around A LOT. One of my favorite things to do now is lay in the tub with a good book and watch the baby move. Not so much fun when I'm walking around my classroom and baby decides to get me good :) There are also certain positions that I like to try and sit in since it is hard to get comfortable nowadays but baby will quickly let me know if he/she doesn't like it.

We have 9 more weeks left to go (and I have 9 more weeks of school!) and I'm ready for June to be here. We have been to over half of our Bradley classes and have learned SO much. I love doing the relaxation practices because they involve Blake giving me a massage :) We have started doing a LOT of those these last few weeks because my back has been really hurting. I have a minor case of scoliosis right where it hurts so I'm pretty sure it is that acting up thanks to all my extra weight and not anything to worry about.

April is shaping up to be a pretty busy month but we are trying to keep May as clear as possible. Even though I am due after school gets out, I'm going to outline sub plans in case baby decides to come early. According to Murphy's Law, if I take the time to make the sub plans, the baby won't come until after school gets out, but if I don't prepare, the baby will be super early!

I guess that all I have for now. Plus I'm super tired and proud of myself for actually making it through this post :)
