So here I am in all my pregnant glory at 24 weeks:
I hate to say it, but I feel like I look ginormous in this picture. In real life how big I feel depends on the time of day and what I’m wearing. I think this lighter sweater is making me look bigger! 🙂
But getting bigger is what’s supposed to happen. Baby’s gotta have room to grow right?
Everything is going very smoothly with my pregnancy (knock on wood). Other than nausea in the first trimester, I really haven’t had much to complain about. I’m no longer running, which is sad. But it was giving me some back pain and was starting to get uncomfortable, so I threw in the towel. Even walking on the treadmill gives me a bit of back pain, so I’ve been doing the elliptical. My body seems to like that a lot better.
Only 16 weeks to go and I feel like we have a lot to accomplish before Baby Boy arrives. We have some house projects I’d like to get done, like painting the living room. And we also need to get the nursery set up. The room is mostly cleaned out, so now it’s just touching up the paint, maybe replacing the carpet and then decorating. I have an idea for the theme, but I don’t want to share it yet. 😉
One thing I have been working on lately is the baby registry. My good friend Kelly was kind enough to accompany me to the baby store and help me pick out the things we will need for the baby. I still need to research a few big items, but at least I have most of the small stuff picked out.
One of the fun things about the registry is that it’s online (as most are these days) so I can add and subtract things whenever I want. So I wanted to throw out some questions to blog-land:
- What are some baby things you can not or were not able to live without that I should definitely include on my registry?
- What are some baby things that are completely useless or pointless that I definitely should not include on my registry?
