I make big announcements, like the fact that I’m pregnant after struggling with infertility, then I just disappear. What can I say, life is busy and I haven’t really had the time or energy to write in a while.
But I’m BACK!
Let me break this post in to a few bullet points:
- PREGNANCY: Pregnancy has been hard at times and easy at times. I’d say overall that I’m having a pretty easy pregnancy. The 1st trimester was pure exhaustion, night time sickness, and major indigestion. All I wanted during those first three months was to be able to brush my teeth without dry-heaving! I’m happy to say that now, at 29 weeks, I can indeed brush my teeth without gagging or vomiting. **applause** The 2nd trimester was really easy. I had some pretty bad back pain for a couple of weeks, but I’ve gotten used to it. Zantac and Tums are my new bff’s. Five Guys is also my bff. I just entered the 3rd trimester last week and I indeed look pregnant. I realized this morning that I can’t see my toes without bending way over.
Is anything more awkward than a selfie photo? Oh well.
- BATHROOMS: We are about to start a full renovation on our master bathroom and a partial renovation on our guest bathroom. This has been a long time coming and I’m so glad it’s about to start! I’ll do a full post later just on the bathroom, but for now here are some sneak peeks from my iPhone:
NURSERY: With 11 weeks to go, I’ve done nothing in the room that will be the nursery. I have plans, though…big, big plans! As soon as the bathrooms are finished, which should be in about 4 weeks from now, the nursery will be rapidly tackled! The bathroom is exciting and all, but I’m way more excited about making this room for our sweet little girl to call home. Just imagine soft whites, coral, navy, and gold. Wahooooo!!!!!! I’m just so thankful to be given the opportunity to be a mother, and I can’t wait to see Alex as a father. It is so surreal but I’m ready to start this adventure of parenthood!
I seriously hope to have a good “before” post on the bathroom with detailed plans soon. Construction starts right after Labor Day and will last 3-4 weeks. Surely I can get a post together during that time, right?
