I don’t think the baby’s room will be ready when she arrives (I have accepted this fact and I’m not going to stress out about it as Nicholas tells me I always do). The construction is taking longer than we thought. The rain and our busy schedules don’t help either. I can’t wait till I get the chance to start decorating. I was looking for Nursery décor even before we knew it was a girl. I had a whole set picked out for a boy too! I loved this crib for either gender. I think the grey is contemporary and classic at the same time. I can pair it with white or grey furniture. It also converts into a toddler bed so it will last us a while.

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 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.

21 Weeks

So this week I am being a single mother. Nicholas is in North Carolina for a week working. I know I travel a lot and I’m sure he misses me but I REALLY MISS HIM. I had a doctor’s appt on Monday. Nothing special just my usual month follow up. Normally Nicholas is the only guy there but yesterday I was the only single girl. Everyone had their husbands with them. It was really weird, almost like the universe wanted me to miss him more. Then when I was sitting in the room waiting for the doctor to come in, I wished he was there. He always calms my nerves. He is usually full of funny jokes and wants to touch everything in the room. It drives me crazy but it’s funny seeing him mess with the birth control information diagrams. As most of you know he is still a 10 year old boy inside and can’t sit still. Not only is he comic relief but It’s really nice to have his input and comments. He really is so interested in the whole process.

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.

20 Weeks

I am still on a high from our very exciting news on Wednesday. I can’t stop looking at the ultrasound pictures. I put the 3D photo in a frame and I keep moving it all around the house so I can look at it. It’s so incredible that we get a glimpse inside to see her. I am so excited to see Baby B’s little face and hold her.

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.

18 Weeks

I wore almost the same outfit today as in my first picture so I thought it was only fitting to post this weeks picture. As you can tell my belly has gotten much larger!

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.

A week from today, I’ll have a son or a daughter!

Mothers can always tell

I went to the store yesterday morning to stock up on drinks for the guys that came over to work on the house. In front of the store they were selling Girl Scout cookies. I thought I should pick some up for the guys too. As I was paying for the cookies the Mother that was assisting the girls asked me when I was due. I didn’t know what to say, my brain temporarily stopped working. It was the first time a stranger had asked if I was pregnant. I was wearing a big hoodie so I guess that’s why it really took me by surprise. Finally I figured out the answer and said August. I told her she was the first person to ask me that. She said she scooped me out on the way in and could tell. We talked for a minute and as I was leaving she said “Congratulations”. As I was waking away the hormones kicked in and I started crying. I don’t know why I was crying? I guess it struck me, how weird that people can actually see the transformation that I have been feeling for months. I know that as the weeks go on the comments from strangers will be more frequent. Also I’m not looking forward to strangers trying to touch my belly, that’s just too much for me to handle. I really don’t like people invading my personal space!

Under the weather

On Monday I started feeling like I was coming down with something, By Tuesday morning I was completely sick. This is my first cold since I’ve been pregnant and can I just tell you how frustrating it is. The only medicine I could take did not work or match my symptoms. Basically I only took Tylenol to help with the sore throat and aches & pains. All I want to do is chug Nyquil but I don’t want to give birth to a Wine-O! The worst has been my nausea coming back. I think the cold triggered my gag reflex. I had to take 3 days off of work and honestly I could have taken more. I literally did nothing but sleep all day long. I don’t think the baby liked me sleeping on my side all day long. My stomach was really achy yesterday and it feels so much better to get up and walk around. I guess it was putting too much pressure on my abdomen.

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.
