After being primed for two months, the baby’s room is FINALLY done being painted!!
In case you missed the post a few weeks ago, my Grandpa came over to help Kyle and I paint the baby’s room. My mom and I had originally started the room back in February when we primed the walls for real paint. As a refresher of what it looked like before, here’s a photo:
That there is some scary shiz.
So, after three months, two coats of primer, and two coats of paint later, the baby’s room is finally done being painted!
(Pardon the painting supplies I’ve yet to clear out of the room)
I am SOOOO happy with the way it turned out! There’s a couple of spots that need to be touched up, but other than that, I am in love with my baby’s future room :)
I seriously can’t thank my Grandpa enough for helping Kyle and I paint the room. It seriously means the world to me that he wanted to help, because I know my Grandma would be so excited to see it all done. He was there the day before she passed away, the day after, and the day after her Celebration of Life to get the painting done. He is a dedicated man in every way, shape, and form. Seriously, my hero.
And now that the painting is all done, I finally feel a little better about the baby coming in just 9 weeks! (If she’s actually on time) I can’t wait to get the baby furniture in the room when it arrives in about a month. It’s finally starting to feel real.
So, now to the questions of the week:
How far along? 31 Weeks
How big is baby? She’s about 3.3lbs and approximately 16″ long, according to BabyCentre.ca.
Total weight gain/loss: I’m about 140lbs, so I’ve gained about 20/25lbs depending on the way you look at it. (I lost 5lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight during the first trimester)
Maternity Clothes? The weather is starting to warm up quite a bit so some “spring/summer” shopping is going to be needed soon. Pants are getting to be a little bit too warm. You’d think I’d be excited to shop, but I freakin’ HATE how much maternity clothing is.
Stretch marks? No actual stretch marks, although Kyle SWEARS he seen one the other day, but it’s gone now. I’m pretty sure it was a weird pant line or something. Sucker! I do, however, have a little bit of a vertical stretch mark from my belly button to my pelvis. (There’s a name for it, I just can’t remember what it’s called.) That one doesn’t bother me as much as actual stretch marks would.
Sleep: I wake up a lot in the middle of the night just sweating to death, it’s awful. I’m so glad I’m not going to be pregnant in the middle of the summer heat!
Movement: She’s been moving A LOT lately, and it seems to go on for quite a while. She really likes to move around when I’m driving (maybe it’s the music in my car?) and when I’m watching TV (especially if the show has gun fire or violence, lol).
Food cravings: Saturday night I went to the pub to watch the UFC event and normally I order nachos about 1/2 way through the night. I opted not to this time around and the table behind me ordered some … OMG THE SMELL! I’m totally kicking myself for not ordering any now. Who wants to bring me a plate of nachos?
What I miss: Being comfortable. It’s getting harder and harder to be in a comfortable position, be it while standing, sitting or whatever. And now I’ve started the “waddle” when I walk, mostly because my hips hurt so damn much some days. Oh well – only 9 weeks to go, and I’ll have a whole new can of things to miss!
What I am looking forward to: Baby’s furniture arriving, as well as the glider Kyle ordered for me. I’m also getting really antsy to shop for baby clothing. I’ve starting browsing stores online and using all my willpower to Pin my finds instead of buying them! You can check out all the cuteness on my Pinterest board here.
Milestones: Finishing the paint in the baby’s room, waiting on the baby furniture to arrive. Soon we will be trying to install the car seat base into my car! (This may or may not be a challenge!)
