Third trimester baby! Speaking of baby, he is the size of an eggplant and busy putting on layers of fat and becoming less wrinkly. ‘Atta boy.
The weeks keep flying by, and this week I had some serious anxiety about my baby boy growing up too fast. Yes seriously. I realize he is not even born yet, but when I see little kids running around I almost have a panic attack (dramatic much?) that it is all going to happen too fast and suddenly I will have a full blown kid instead of a baby and what if I miss everything?? I am so excited to meet this little guy, but seriously, time can slow down just a little bit, m’kay?
No new symptoms to report this week, I’m still sleeping slightly better (yes!), and I am pounding down the fruit more than ever. I think the recent warmer temps make me crave it even more. It was in the mid-70’s on Easter Sunday which felt a little bit like heaven. I will not discuss the current extended forecast and the fact that I do not believe it contains one temperature that starts with a six, let alone a seven.
Remember when this used to be a running blog? Bahahaha! I may be done running for now, but I did make it to masters swim not one, not two, but THREE times this past week. That is a record for me, pregnant or not. Swimming continues to feel good, and it continues to be the same struggle in actually going to the pool. At least when I go to masters I know I have to be there at a certain time, and that I won’t have to come up with a workout on my own. So much easier than dragging my butt there solo these days.
Progress continues in the nursery, the most exciting part being the arrival of the rug.
Love it. The next step was to pick out a paint color for the blue wall. We are going with “tropical holiday” and the walls should be complete this week. We also found out we need to get a new crib. Turns out the hand me down from my cousin that I was going to paint white was recalled due to the drop side, which is a big no no these days. It’s a good crib, and chances are likely that nothing bad would ever happen and it would be fine, but the fact is that I am not willing to go through all of the work of painting said crib when we really aren’t supposed to be using it anyways. My mother-in-law has generously offered to buy us the crib as a baby gift, which I am so grateful for. We are going to get one with an attached changer to save space, and it will already be white (insert relief here). We will still be painting the diaper pail and dresser, but both of those projects will be significantly easier than painting a crib. The last piece we need as far as furniture goes is a chair. I have my eyes on this glider/ottoman combo from Babies R Us.
Honestly it is more than I wanted to spend on a glider/ottoman, but I realized that I don’t like the look of the traditional wooden models (which are just as pricey for a nice one anyways), and I really want a chair that will be comfortable to spend many hours sitting in. Hopefully I can make this one happen.
Lastly, Steve and I went on a date night on Saturday, which included dinner and a special stop for dessert at Kopp’s Frozen Custard.
Man, frozen custard is the best.
