Week 26 Wowzers--We've Finally Started Working on the Nursery!
That's right folks, you heard it here first - Matthew has a new dresser and his old one is in what will be the Peanut's room! It's still not a full nursery - the crib has yet to go in, but as this room is our guest room, we'll worry about the crib at a later date. The baby will probably sleep in our room in the beginning anyway. We do, as an extended family, have access to three different bassinets at any given time, so there's no rush on the crib. It's in the basement in pieces and isn't going anywhere.
Now, at the time of writing this, we have also moved our office into our bedroom - it's a pretty huge room, but it's filled with furniture now. This will be the first night sleeping in the new arrangement. I just hope when I wake up in the middle of the night to use the facilities that my Diclectin-induced coma doesn't keep me from remembering where the furniture is.
Matthew is very proud of his new dresser and is very happy to know that the old one is going to the baby.
In other news, the extended family all went to beautiful sunny Wasaga Beach, Ontario this past week. Most of us weren't working on Tuesday so we took advantage of the lovely weather and headed north to splash in the water. The Beach is great - the water pretty much never gets deep. Just as you think it's getting too deep for your 38" kid, you hit another sand bar and have to work your way in again. Also, because of the odd depths, it's fairly warm just about everywhere this time of year.
In pregnancy news, the baby continues to kick and play, I continue to be terribly uncomfortable with the temperature (gonna' be REALLY high tomorrow), the NVP remains as it was, and my sugars are doing fairly well. In fact, I have graduated to going to the Diabetes Clinic every two weeks! They only want to see me in between if I have unexplained low blood sugars. So woo-hoo for that! To celebrate my first week without having to go to the Clinic, I'm going shopping with my Mother-in-Law for more maternity clothes (need shirts now). It'll be nice to have a Tuesday that isn't almost completely eaten up by one Doctor's appointment.
And that's about it for this week. Thanks for joining me on the countdown to the third trimester - two more weeks! Maybe at the end of it I'll be able to recognize the baby's kick patterns and Mike will actually be able to feel them! A lot of them are strong enough on the outside.
