I didn’t want to get a nursery set that was too pink and I don’t like the ones that are gender neutral. I really wanted a subtle pink and I found this at TheModernbabyco.com. They make some really modern baby bedding. I love that it’s such a subtle tone of mauve/ pink. I think it will look great with the grey crib too. The website was almost sold out of this set so my super sweet Mom bought it for Baines. She just kicked me and I think that means “Thanks Grandma”
I also saw this mobile that matched the décor. I don’t like the wind up, stuffed animal ones (No offence it you have one it’s just not my taste). The white butterflies are so minimal and will really add something special to the room. I’m sure Baines will love to look at it while falling asleep.
I was thinking about painting the room a light grey. I would love to do hard wood floors like the rest of the house but Nicholas really likes carpet. So we'll have to find something that will be durable and won't show stains. Plus it will be nice for her to crawl around on something soft.

During this appointment we reviewed the details from our Ultrasound. They took measurements to make sure that Baby B is growing just right. As you know I’m a glass is half empty kind of girl and was really nervous that something would be wrong. Fortunately everything looked great. Baines is growing just as she should. The only issue was my placenta, as I mentioned in a previous post, its located at the bottom of my uterus covering my cervix. This is called placenta previa, it would mean that I am unable to have a natural birth. My doctor was not that concerned because it generally moves as the pregnancy progresses. I will have another Ultrasound in a few weeks and if it hasn’t moved then we will start scheduling a C-section. I’m not worried about it yet, I’ll wait to see how things go before I stress out.
Not only do I miss Nicholas but the puppies do too! When he is gone both dogs are always on edge listening to every noise hoping it’s him. I’m usually in bed almost asleep before they give up on him coming home and join me. Last night both dogs sleep with me inside the pregnancy pillow. We have a king size bed and all they wanted to be right next to me. I think it’s because they want to be close to Baines, with that thought I didn’t mind. In fact they can cuddle with me and Baines any night.

This week marked another accomplishment, my half way point. I have another 20 weeks to go! The first 20 went by really fast so I’m hoping the second will too. I am so ready for my hormones to go back to a normal level. Already I am always HOT! It’s been 55-60 degrees in the morning and that feels perfect to me. All day long I just want the air conditioner on full blast. The girls in our showroom are all fighting with me because they are freezing. I think I need to get a little fan for my desk. I don’t know how I am going to make it once summer hits! No one wants to see a pregnant woman in a tube top and daisy dukes but I just might have to do it. Haha Thank heavens my In-laws have a swimming pool. I know that will be a big help once the temperature rises. I already bought a maternity swimming suit in preparation. I can’t wait to use it. If the water was a little warmer I would be swimming now but I think it would freeze the baby. It’s still a little too soon even for California.
This week has been crazy as well, we have LA Market now and Wednesday I leave for Dallas. I had to retire most of my heals and some sandals already. Not having support has made my back hurt like crazy. Once I get a free weekend, I think I’ll treat myself to a prenatal massage. I’ve also been struggling with sleeping. I just can’t get comfortable; I wake up 2-3 times every hour. It’s really frustrating because I’m so exhausted but I just can’t get a good night sleep. I think my body is preparing for all the sleepless nights awake with Baines.

I am feeling little kicks and punches all the time now. I think this baby might be a ninja when it grows up because it already knows karate.
Also, I had to post this picture so you could see how wide I am (and how big my boobs are). Plus I look super Bad A** and thats hard to do when your pregnant.

It’s supposed to rain again this weekend so more than likely I’ll spend it sleeping and laying around. Hopefully by Monday I will be feeling back to normal.
