one day i will realize that i should take it easy. this is the statement i made to micah last night. his response was laughter and he sarcastically said "yeah." and i said "in 7 weeks i'll have staples and will have to." then my next thought was "ya know, when i had luke, we changed rooms the day after my c-section and i was picking up my suitcase to move across the hall."
anyway, that was random. however, the room is painted and the curtains have been hung and yesterday i took it upon myself to clean out the clutter that has started accruing in my garage and storage building from "moving prep". can anyone say nesting?? today's plan is to put the crib together and vacuum in there and start getting things in place. the weekend i will use for getting clothes organized (as i have a shower at work tomorrow so no reason to start that today.) and hopefully that will be the end of getting ready for little sister.
next wednesday is my doctor's appointment and i think it's when i start going every 2 weeks. and if i haven't mentioned it, i really think she is facing forward b/c i can see every move, every kick. it is strange!! and i know i have felt actual feet and knees. and i think i'm starting to have a liiiiiiittle swelling. (i need some more epsom salts, Dana!!) i have been able to wear my rings, but i noticed the last couple of days that they are getting a little tight. that and how do you gain 5 lbs in 2 days? just another reason to take it easy and chug some water.
and i promise pictures are coming. just stay tuned. you know i'm OCD and want you to see the finished product!!
