Week 29- Getting back to normal

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Hi all,

We are finally getting back into the groove after a couple of busy weeks. After getting back from the shower I spent a few days trying to get the nursery stuff organized and washed. We ended up having to return a bunch of stuff that we got doubles of and having to pick up a ton of stuff we didn't get. Mostly sheets and misc burp clothes, etc. It was not the most fun I have ever had in Babies R Us. I had to keep calling my mom and asking her what I needed and how many of each to make sure that we have what we need when the baby first comes, like onesies and what not. I don't want Tom having to run out and get stuff on his own, it stresses him out. Then it makes me stressed so if I can have as much as I can up front it would be best. I think we are almost set. We got almost all of our big ticket items, minus the high chair which I returned and a jogging stroller. We have a starter stroller and in a few months we will make a final decision on a jogger. I know the baby won't be able to sit in either for a few months so it's not a top priority now and besides I have so many giftcards I know it won't be an actual expense when the time comes and that's great!

This weekend we also went and picked out some more decor since we currently have nothing for the room. Tom is really indecisive and I've kinda left it up to him as to the theme. I am totally not into boy things and if I had my way it would be a pretty plain room with patterns and no animals or themes. I totally despise animal themes and I don't know why. They just irritate me, it seems like baby stuff only comes in animals and it just bothers me. In any case since Tom was having so many issues deciding I drove us to a few places to look at things and told him we had to leave with at least 1 thing for the room, and we did. We still have a lot to get but at least we are going in a solid direction and I can order online if I have to. After a busy day shopping on Monday yesterday I woke up feeling like trash. I have a scratchy throat and it's hard to swallow and I had the full body aches all day yesterday. I had no appetite and basically lived on ginger ale and toast all day. Today I feel a little better but not 100%. I'm not sure if it's allergies or something worse but I am going to wait another day before I go to the doctor. If it's just allergies there isn't anything they can do. So I'm just sitting and suffering! I'll live I guess. It was a bummer too becuase the week I was in Pittsburgh I didn't go to the gym just did a lot of walking and Monday I had a bad ass workout and felt good to get back in the swing and now I am laid up for 2 days. It feels like everytime I get back in the swing something derails me. I already talked Tom into a long walk tonight so I figure that's better than nothing at this point. Especially since I don't want to make this illness worse.

Otherwise we had a doctor's appt last week and he said everything is good, glucose test went well so I don't have to worry about that. Other than that we go next week for another ultrasound and general appointment. It's been going so fast, it's crazy. Baby boy feels like he tries to escape at night and sometimes it freaks me out. Tom kinda thought I was crazy until he saw it. He had felt the kicks before when they were more subtle but now that he is really moving and pushing me so hard you can see it it's a whole new experience. He thought it was cool.

I think that's it for this week. I leave you with the weekly belly shots!

    do you think maybe your working out too hard?? i had this happen to me.....i hadnt been running since i found out i preggers (cause i felt so bad) and then a few weeks ago i went. i didnt really "run" more like a nice slow jog. i felt soooo good, not tired, wasnt out of breath, ect. and went for 35 mins (includes a 5 min warm up and cool down) but the next day i felt AWFUL! my legs hurt, i was TIRED i felt like i had been run over by a truck! so i keep it at 15 mins and then do the shred, weights only just so i can kinda keep arms and legs toned. that seems to work out a lot better. so even tho i felt really good...it was deff too much for me while being 18 weeks pregnant! i think i slept half the day away. just a suggestion! =) glad you are doing so well.....the bump is cuuuute!

    All new parents try their best to be "prepared". It never happens! LOL As long as you have the basics (onsies, bottles, diapers & wipes, car seat, burpies, etc.) thats all you'll need for the first few months. Trust me...you will always think of something that the lil' guy needs that you don't have. Welcome to parenthood! It's so funny too... when you go shopping, you will find more things to buy for him than for yourself. Soooo much fun!!
