A few more things done....

After babysitting my friend's children this morning for an hour or so, I did actually get a few things done. I cleaned the downstairs bathroom as well as the laundry room. I also swept and mopped the front entryway and hall areas downstairs. THEN, I pulled out the medela breast pump that my friend lent me and looked at it in detail for the first time. I had bought Medela steamer bags that go in the microwave to sanitize the parts to I did that. I think I understand how it works, even though there is not an instruction manual with it...LOL! We shall see, I guess! I also cleaned our kitchen trash in, took it outside, hosed it down and scrubbed it with a sponge and 409 cleaner! Now, it is 3:30pm and I am exhausted! Ready to lie down! I was planning to put the carseat base in the car & get that installed correctly, but that will have to wait.....

ho humm......

I made 2 more freezer meals today. Same recipe, just froze was called "Ham Spaghetti Bake". It looks good, I have never tried it though. I also made 16 banana muffins (from scratch!) and will freeze some of them as well. I went to Harris Teeter and saved about $33 with coupons, since it is triple coupon week! (-: Now I am day is OVER! LOL! I just want to lie around now....blah!

More nursery pictures!

The cushions for the glider/rocker were finished today...they look amazing! They even had some fabric left over, so now I can make something cute & coordinating from it! (-: Also, I don't think I ever posted pictures of the dresser that we got last week, so that is on here too. The dry wall will be finished next week and then we will re-paint the room in a pale yellow.

So tired!

Work kicked my butt today & it really wasn't even a busy I had a senior nursing student with me who had all 3 of my patients. But I am worn out! Plus, I think I started having my 1st ever Braxton Hix contractions...very odd feeling, I have never noticed them in previous pregnancies, but today, I swear that was what was going on periodically. And tonight as well.

Getting kinda excited! (-:

I could be holding baby Isabella in my arms within 6 weeks possibly! I am really getting excited. Especially since everything seems to finally be coming together...the baby's room is making great progress towards being done (that reminds me...I need to call the drywall guy and schedule him to come..he said he could start in about a week & a half). I am probably going tomorrow to Babies R Us to use my 20% off coupon that starts tomorrow to go ahead and buy the dang Peg Perego stroller. I may put it on lay-away for a month or so, just so I don't have another large item sitting around & taking up space, we will see. Maybe I will just buy it outright tomorrow. Depending on which one I go with, it will either cost about $160 or $ 264 after the 20% off. I am so glad I have that coupon! It saved me $80 on the baby dresser I bought! Speaking of which, I am going to call today to check on that. They said it takes 1-2 weeks to arrive, it has been 1 week, and I am always paranoid that they have an old phone # for me & didn't update it when I did the lay-away. Also, I was finally able to get an update from the upholstery place today that is doing my glider/rocker cushions. They say that they should be ready by Tuesday afternoon! Woo hoo! It's only been a month, goodness!! I know there is still a lot to do, but I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!
Ok, so which stroller do you think I should go with?

Stroller A

Stroller B

Update...speak of the devil! Babies R Us JUST called and my dresser is in!!! Woo hoo! Now i need to figure out if it will fit in my mini-van or if we need FIL's truck!

32 weeks!

Baby girl is kicking & moving like crazy lately, it often hurts!! I am still working & hanging in there...I have decided that June 6th will be my last day, if I make it that far. My mom will be coming down around June 1st & staying until the baby arrives, to help us out! (-: And..... we are finally starting back up on the construction of the baby's room. They are going to finish the closet and hang all the drywall tomorrow! Woo hoo!!!!!!!! We will have solid, non see-through walls! (-: I am still waiting on my glider/rocker cushions to be finished and I paid off the "Babies R Us" layaway on the chest of I am just waiting for them to call me and say it is ready to be picked up!

30 weeks 1 day

This week has been another CRAZY, HORRIBLE week, but things are looking a little better. I did have my 30 week appt today and all is great! According to their scale (and I even had tennis shoes on!) I have not really gained weight since my last visit...they didn't say anything, but I took note of that! (-: I am holding at a total gain of 15 lbs thus far. My blood pressure was 108/58...makes me wonder if that is actually correct...but hey, I will take it! I measured 31cm when the Dr measured me, so right on target there. Also, he was able to palpate that the baby is head down. Heart rate was still at about 140. Now I will start going once every 2 weeks instead of monthly. I cannot believe that the end is almost here! Time has flown!
