28 weeks

We spent the first night in our new house last night. It felt kind of like sleeping in a hotel. Everything is new, my routine didn't feel the same, the bathroom is in a different spot when I had to get up in the middle of the night, etc. I know I’ll get used to it (obviously, I do at every new house). Garrett & his dad started in the early afternoon by bringing our bed over. By the time I got there it was already put together. It’s nice to have the bed put together properly. For the last 2 ½ months we’ve been sleeping on the mattress on the floor at my parents’ house. It was getting tricky to pull myself out of bed. Then my parents came over & helped us put together the new couch. Yes, put together. It’s from Ikea but we LOVE it. It’s the Karlstad 2+3 sectional. It has tons of seating & is super comfy, all while looking super stylish. Now, I need to decide where everything will go in my kitchen. Even though I love experimenting in the kitchen, I hate the pressure of choosing which cabinets will hold which items. I also need some food items to put in said kitchen. My fridge has 2 cases of pop & 2 mostly destroyed pizzas. Need to shop. Basically, it’s going to be a little bit before I feel settled. I’m just hoping its several weeks before this little baby boy arrives. I'd like to spend the last part of July & first part of August just having fun with Connor.

How far along are you? 28 weeks + 1 day

Current cravings? Nothing in particular

Belly button in or out? Depending on baby’s position it’s an outie but most of the time it’s still really shallow.

Gender? Boy!

Any milestones?  We’ve moved into the house that our little boy will come home to. Also, after failing my 1 hour glucose test (did this w/ Connor too) I went on to pass the 3 hour test. I’m also down to appointments every 2 weeks. Wow, I’m in the home stretch.

Other symptoms? Icky hip pain last night while sleeping. Thankfully this has not been every night. I think it just had to do with my restless night of sleep being in the new house.    

Anything different between this pregnancy & last?  I didn’t move when I was pregnant with Connor. This time I’ve moved 3 times! It’s tough, but worth it.

What I miss? The weekend. It’s Moanday, boo. But that is one less Monday that I’ll have to work. Bring on July!

What I’m looking forward to? Not having my house look like a bomb went off. I'm also looking forward to our washer & dryer arriving on Thursday. They're pretty :)

Working on any projects? Finishing up Connor’s bed. It didn’t like being moved so there are a few spots of touching up to do. It’s supposed to rain until Friday which doesn’t make for very good spray painting conditions. Connor slept on his big boy mattress on the floor last night. Guess he’ll be doing that until we can finish up the bed. Aside from the smudges & scratches that moving caused, the bed is looking great.

Now I need to find lampshades for the lamps I refinished (I think they need another coat of clear coat) & get started on my other finds (desk & chair + rocking chair that I’ve inherited from my mom). The rocking chair has been sanded & mostly primed. Just need to prime the bottom & get started on painting it.

We also need to finish moving into the house & finish some paint touch ups where the blasted painters tape failed. I hate that stuff.
