Moving right along

Only 17 weeks to go. Time is flying by. Today I am 22 weeks. I know the math doesn't add up to 40 weeks but my OB has told me that because of my history we will plan for a C-section at 39 weeks. 
 So there are a couple things going on in my world. First off the other day a friend from the firehouse was so nice to donate a ton of stuff to us. It was so much stuff that it filled the trunk of my trunk. A pack and play, 3 different baby carries, and tons of clothes ranging from birth to 3T. I went through and sorted all the clothes so I have that all ready for when I start doing the big day of laundry. 

We also started our kitchen renovation. The wall between the kitchen and dining room is completely gone. Some of the electrical work has been started. The hubby has another day off tomorrow so he will be back at it getting it ready. Our first goal is to have the floor torn up so that we can install the gas, electric and water to the island before we go to Atlanta next month. The reason we set this goal is if we can get all that stuff in before we go, we can have the concrete poured and let it cure while we are away. Then when we get back we can aim to get the flooring done by 4th of July. I guess we will see how things go from here.

Trying to get crafty

A few weeks ago before a good friends baby shower I decided that I was going to get crafty. I decided that I would try to make some fashionable burp cloths. So on my lunch break and after work I had gathered all the supplies. Cloth diapers, cute fabric, thread and finally a good pair of scissors. The prep work was easy. I just had to wash the cloth diapers. The hard part was getting my sewing machine out of the box and all set up. After 3 weeks of adjusting the tension just so I was able to get the machine to work like a champ. I only did one last night, but I feel like I've got the hang of it. So here is the first of many.

Halfway there

Can you believe it???? Me neither!!! Today I am 20 weeks and I am so happy. We have so much to do before this little lady gets here. Not sure when and how we are going to get it all done but we will give it our best shot. Our plan is to turn the back unused portion of the living room into a third bedroom/office which will be used by my step daughter when she is here. Her room would then be turned into the nursery. We also need to do the flooring in the living room, what will be the new bedroom/office and the kitchen. We also need to redo the entire kitchen. Somehow I don't think a lot of this list will get done. My bet is that when baby arrives she will be sharing rooms with her big sister. Not really a big deal, I guess. I just want some more progress on our house renovations. Hopefully since the hubby is off today maybe he will get some stuff done towards the ultimate goal. 
Anyway here I am half baked!!!!

Drum roll please

Today was the day of the long awaited anatomy scan. I had a 7am appointment which was awesome because it was the first of the day but sucked because it was so early. It felt even earlier because Nigel felt the need to bark at random times through the night.
Well we got in the office and check out the baby. And I must say baby was looking perfect. I think that the baby must take after me and must not really be a morning person as she was sleeping for most of the ultrasound. Yep that's right I said she. We are having a little girl and I am so excited. After I got to work she was kicking up a storm. I am feeling way more activity from here and I love it. It is such a weird feeling. I really can't wait for the hubby to be able to feel her move.
I forgot to take a bump pic for you this morning because it was so early and as I mentioned before I am not a morning person. But I do have some pictures of my little lady. So here she is.
