Who? Me?

Thirty-three weeks pregnant?

Nah, that's gotta me somebody else you are talking about. It can't be me!

Or perhaps it can. I certainly am feeling that pregnant lately. I have definitely adopted the pregnant waddle, I get up to use the restroom at least three times a night, and my preoccupation with everything B-A-B-Y is possibly dangerous to my health and others'. My husband laughed at me yesterday as I tried to calculate 4 x 25 and was questioning the (correct) answer that I came up with. It is terribly cliche, but I truly just want to putter in his nursery. I have folded and refolded freshly washed little onesies, socks, and footie pjs. I have ironed his crib and bassinet sheets (that will be the only time that they are ironed, I can assure you). I have rearranged (light) furniture, stuffed animals, books, etc. I guess you could say that I am nesting. Or at least obsessing.

The nursery is in no way, shape, or form done. We still need the rest of our bedding, wall decorations, and to organize his closet. But if he were to be born today, we would have what we need. It's a major feeling of relief.

I do have some pictures to share of our progress, but we are having some technical problems with our computer, so look for them later on this week, as well as some updated belly shots. I feel as if I am looking pretty huge, but (knock on wood) I still don't have any stretch marks and I do feel as if a lot of it is baby belly.

I also just wanted to say thank you to those of you that posted comments or e-mailed me regarding the not-so-nice e-mail. I haven't received any more communication from the author and I hope that it's the end of it. I will be keeping the name for the time being - if for no other reason than I can't think of anything more creative!

Awww! It's so sweet to think of you dreamily putting his room together! I used to sit in the rocking chair, when I was pregnant, and just look around the room and think, "One day a baby will live here!"

I can totally picture you just hanging out in that nursery for the next several weeks.. I hope to be doing the same when I get to this point.
I cannot wait to see the photos!
*hugs*

It's wonderful that you are ready enough! I'm sure you will be totally ready soon.

What a sweet post - I'm glad you are enjoying all the preparations (and ironed sheets - wow! If you get bored we have a sink full of dishes that neither of us is in any way inspired to do, long before we get to making the bed ...)

How awesome that you're in a place where you would have what you needed were he to come today. We have almost no clothing, so we aren't there yet, but I'm sure we will be eventually :)

I can't wait to see updated pictures!

33 weeks - what a great milesone!

I think it's so precious the nesting you are doing right now, especially the clothes folding and all. So sweet.

Glad everything is going well. It is hard to believe that you are almost done with this pregnancy. Glad the nursery is coming together. Such an exciting time for you.

Maria said...

OMG, it feels like just yesterday that you got your bfp.

I can't wait to see the pics of the nursery and your belly.

Joy said...

Hey Katie! I gave you a blog award and you totally deserve it. I love your blog and hearing about your little one's journey. Go on over to my blog to get your award (it's toward the end of the post).

33 weeks - WOW! Congrats! Can't wait to see some new belly pics.

The nesting really is real, isn't it? I love that you're folding and re-folding. And, bravo for ironing sheets. That is impressive!
