30 Weeks

Where has the time gone?!?!
I can't believe that i'm already 30 weeks pregnant and will have a newborn in a little over 2 months

Here's playing catch up:

Charlotte's Room

Its coming along! We/I still have a lot of work to do.
As I mentioned in my previous post, we put hardwood upstairs and painted.
Her room is the prettiest color ever! Mint Blue
Her room also gets the best light in the house. It feels so fresh and cheerful in there now.

Thanks to my mom's, Charlotte has the prettiest crib!! I fell in love with it once I saw it. Now for the decorating... im sure ill get around to it.

 >>> BEFORE <<<


A lot has been going on lately. We've been trying to get projects in our house finished before the little one arrives. We tore out the carpet in most of the upstairs area and replaced it with hardwood/linoleum. We replaced the baseboards upstairs and painted as well.

In addition to all of the work that we've been doing around the house, Matt has been working his butt off at his actual job and its been paying off - he's been 1st place sales man of the month for two months in a row now, which is AWESOME!!

And as for me... my friend just had a baby and I just so happen to have a nice camera... so I've been asking her if it's okay that I practice and take some baby pictures with her newborn. (it's a hobby that i've been wanting to get into and have just now started playing around with it) Its so much fun!

Anyway... im not very good at this writing stuff, especially when I don't feel like explaining things that have happened weeks ago. Blah.. So here are some pictures :)

Thanks to matts parents we were able to buy baby Charlotte the coolest stroller, car seat travel combination. And thanks to Jess she's going to be the safest kid on the block, in her new car seat! Thanks to Melanie for all of the suggestions and for keeping an eye out when there is an awesome deal that's impassable. Love you guys and I can't thank you enough for your help!

24 Weeks

How far along? 24 Weeks

Symptoms? None, I feel great.

Sleep: Im sleeping pretty well, although I must say I feel like out bed has gotten smaller.

Best moment this week: Feeling Charlotte move! every chance I can get, I stop what Im doing just to feel her move. - It's amazing!

Miss Anything? No

Movement: She moves all the time! mostly in the morning and around lunch time and before I go to bed.

Food cravings: Nothing

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, im doing great!

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On, although I have been getting swollen by the end of the day, so I have to be careful.

Mood: I hate to admit it, but I think I have mood swings. Im getting annoyed by the littlest things. 

Looking forward to: Getting Charlotte's room put together! We still have so much to do! (basically everything)

Maternity Clothes? I'm still in my regular clothes. I can't button up my pants, so right now im using the extra support from my belt. I've order a few belly bands. Hopefully those will help. Other than that, all of my shirts are still fitting me :)
