Hey! It's been a while! I am finally feeling better! Thanks mostly to a little drug called, Zofran. We have been VERY busy; childbirth classes, weekly ultrasounds, midwife appointments, planning our baby shower, working full time....
I have gained 35 pounds! IDK how my baby could be considered small when I feel HUGE! I swear, the food input does NOT match the output! I am so uncomfortable! I'm 37 weeks here! Soooo close and getting nervous! We have been carting our butts to Burlington every week for ultrasounds and stress tests. Thank goodness Tylan drives. One day I was so tired, I slept the whole way home. I know, I know.... I will never sleep again, so take it where I can, right? LOL!
We hosted our own baby shower. So, we really CLEANED house! I swear, our house has never been as clean and organized as that day. It will never happen again. Picture worthy highlights....
We received such great baby shower gifts! A bit overwhelming! Now, where to put it all?! Baby's room needs a lot of work still. By the way, we do not know the gender of our baby. It will be a fun surprise!
Bought a few bouquets from Hannaford's. They really made things extra special!
The pumpkins are from our garden! IDK what happened, but they all ended up mini! LOL!
I changed out the hardware on this thrift store chest my mother found. It will make a great changing table.... at some point. Like I said, baby doesn't have a room yet. So, we'll be diaper changing in the middle of our dining room. Appetizing....
I reused an embroidery hoop from my Embroidery Hoop project. My mom gave me some cool food themed dish towels. I thought the graphics on them were too cool to just dry my dishes with. So, I decided to use them as art! I just squished them between the embroidery hoops and hung with a tack!
Tylan whipped together a cool wood storage system out of wood slabs and metal poles.
He also welded a cool spider sculpture for a little Halloween decor! I HATE spiders, but how cool is this?!
Our new grey couch covers from eBay are a little tight, but they really lighten the look of the room. Because the slipcover wouldn't stay put, I decided to wrap the cushions in a fleece sheet. Looks cool and keeps the slipcover in place better. Most importantly, LuLu the pit-bull finds fleece comfortable ;)
We have been going to weekly childbirth classes. Our last day of class, everyone brought in food to share. We were sooo proud to bring deviled eggs made with our chicken eggs, salsa made with tomatoes from our garden, and BBQ chicken dip made with our chicken meat! Those are peanut butter cookies too! Not from scratch, but still good.
IDK if the furbabies realize a real baby is about to terrorize their lives....
See you in a few weeks! I'll have a BABY to introduce you to!
Follow me on social media for more tidbits and pictures!
Until next time,
Hey! You'll Love these too!
