Preggo Update

Haven't done one of these in a while sooo...

Here I am on Christmas Eve- about 24 Weeks

I am feeling pretty good these days. I feel as though I doubled in size just over the last few weeks. I am having a hard time bending over to pick things up off the floor all day. Luckily, Alex is starting to get the idea of being helpful. (Such a sweetie) He likes to sit ON my belly when I hold him and I am pretty sure he thinks its funny to push my belly button back in- thats right, snoopy is back and bigger than ever!

I started feeling sciatic pains a few weeks ago and it hurts pretty bad. I had a hard time walking. I have been trying to wear a maternity support belt (under Dr. Jo's orders) and it seems to be helping (as she said it would). The heartburn is killer- I feel it even as I am eating and it seems that all foods will do it. So, tums are my new bff. I have been graced with a few killer charlie horses in the night- always fun. For Christmas I got a "snoogle". No not a puppy. A preggo body pillow. Its great!! Highly recommend it! Even Trav has been caught snoogling up to it.

I go in on Tuesday to do my glucose test...cant wait. (hopefully you hear the sarcasm) but I cant believe how the time is flying.

Over the holiday we pushed into high clean out gear. We have to make room for baby and that means getting rid of my major storage space. It is a slow and daunting process but we will get there soon enough. Where to put my china? Where to put my gift bag collection? Where to put those old bridesmaid dresses?

We decided on bedding for the nursery and we are excited. The theme is fairies (although, I really don't want to go overboard with the theme). We got it at a great deal which made even Travis excited! We also bought the crib and even have it already. Next up after we get the room cleaned out is paint. Luckily, my painter (mr. t) is ready and willing!

As far as names go, we have been thinking but no decisions have been made. You know though that we don't share even if we do decide. I know I know.... but I promise it won't kill ya. :) We are always up for suggestions, so if you want, just leave it in the comments. That way we don't have to hurt your feelings when we stick out our tongue :)

Only about 100 more days to go! We are so excited but I am also just enjoying my precious time alone with Alexander.

Love the bedding. So, I have an ungoing, ENDLESS list of baby names that I've been collecting for years now, so I'll share a few suggestions with you (even though my taste tends to be a little on the "different" side, so you may not like them):

- Parker
- Christian
- Amelia

( I tried to pick the most normal ones on my list :) )

You look beautiful little preggo! Super cute bedding too. As for picking up the toys, I have resorted to crawling on my hands and knees with an empty laundry basket and then putting everything where it belongs. Pathetic, I know, but so much easier than bending over 50 times with a painful belly!

I know you probably won't go, but a chiropractor really helps! I promise!!! I could give you my chiro's number. She works from home now. Love the bedding, very cute!

Kristen said...

I love the faires! I think pregnancy gets harder as we get bigger so that we are ready for the new baby to arrive and less scared of the unknown ahead! Can't wait to meet your sweet little girl :)

Holly said...

Love your bedding! Super cute, just as you are! Nothing unusual there. Names...hmmm. I can't tell you how many people I have told about waiting until the baby is born to reveal the name. I think it is a great idea! Zachary's name would be something different if I would have kept is a secret.

how about Cassie Jr.? I heard that is the new trend...nice nice nice
