28 Weeks and Finally Painting

After two months of having Baby’s room all primed and ready for paint, we finally got started on actually painting her room!

On Sunday my grandpa came over to help me paint the baby’s room. Originally, my mom was going to help me do it, but when that we were going to paint to my grandpa, he mentioned that he LOVED painting and so my mom suggested that maybe I’d like his help. Of course I would! He’s got a lot going on right now, so it was a way for him to get a little break, even if it was only for a few hours.

We only got one coat done of the main colour done, which is a really pretty creamy yellow colour. We’ll do the final coat soon, and then we’ll just have to paint the accent colour (a light lavender) and we’ll be done! My goal is to have everything done by the end of this month – We need to start buying furniture!

You can read about/see what the room in my post here, but here’s what the progress looks like so far:



First Coat:

The photos definitely don’t do the colour ANY justice whatsoever, so I’m hoping once the second coat of paint goes on, along with the purple, it will pop a lot more!

Now, onto your regular programming!

How far along? 28 Weeks!

How big is baby? She’s about 14.8″ long from head to toe and weighs approximately 2.2lbs, according to BabyCentre.ca.

Total weight gain/loss: At my doctor’s appointment last Thursday, I came in just under 135lbs, so in total, including the 4lbs I lost during my first trimester, I’ve gained about 20lbs. My “normal” weight floats between 115-120lbs, so I’m okay with that!

Maternity Clothes? Kyle took me shopping Friday night and I picked up some more shirts – Yay! Now I can stop rotating the same five shirts during the week for work, lol. I plan on buying spring/summer clothes in a couple weeks.

Stretch marks? None!

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping a lot better lately even since I starting using a 2nd pillow for under my belly/between my legs. I can’t be bothered to buy a body pillow, so I just spoon with a regular one and it seems to help support my belly and help with my hip pain.

Movement: Still lots! Baby likes to press “out” near my belly button and it gets pretty uncomfortable, but if I lean over or just rub where she is, she usually moves along. It’s a fun little game we play, lol

Food cravings: Nothing in particular lately, actually.

What I miss: Being active. Slo-pitch starts in a couple weeks and I’m bummed that I won’t be able to play for most of the season, if at all. I have the agility of a brick now. I will, however, make the world’s greatest scorekeeper!

What I am looking forward to: Finishing the baby’s room!

Milestones: My gestation diabetes test and blood work came back all clear, so I’m good to eat donuts and ice cream still! I also signed Kyle and I up for prenatal classes in May.
