~ Getting the Nursery Ready
First off, I am glad to report that my rash is gone! I feel so much better. I noticed a huge improvement after even the first day of the medicine and by the third day all of the bumps were basically gone. It is such a relief!
I know I may be a bit ahead of things here, but I have already started to get the nursery settled down a bit. The house we live in is a rental at this point, so there is only so much I can do. The room we are using as a nursery is right next to ours and not very large. When we moved in, one wall was painted in pink (like Pepto Bismal pink) and white strips and it wasn't a very good paint job. Well, I may have considered leaving it, but since we are having a boy I just couldn't do that to him. So my mom came over this week and was kind enough to paint the wall for me. We just did a very neutral tan/green color. The rest of the walls are white so it is just kind of an accent wall. My husband and I got that room all cleaned out (we had been using it as a storage room up until this point) and then moved the furniture in that we will be using. I also brought the crib in and got it put together. All of the bedding is washed and put in the crib as well. I did have to go back and rearrange the furniture because I didn't like the way it was set up the first time. But overall it looks like a nursery now.
Next week I plan on trying to go through clothes (I have TONS) and get them washed and ready. I know I am only 6 1/2 months, but it's hot here already and I don't want to be doing this stuff last minute. I'd like to enjoy spending time with the kids before they have to go back to school and their baby brother arrives. This is going to be our last time together "alone."
As I mentioned last time, this little one makes his presence known. He is a mover and a shaker and I seem to feel him most of the day. As I have also mentioned he is also very elusive. Every time I try to let someone else feel he stops. My husband teases me that I am making it all up. Well, my mom finally got to feel as did my hubby. Now mind you it was only for a second, but they definately felt it.
Things are moving along. It is so hard for me to believe that I am already over half way done with this pregnancy. Since it most likely will be my last (I don't think hubby will give in to any more) it makes me a bit sad. I have pretty ease pregnancies and I will miss not feeling this was again. However, I am not getting any younger either and I know eventually this stage of my life will come to an end. Nonetheless, makes me sad.
Until next time . . . hugs and belly rubs!
