3w3d and 18w4d Belly Pics:
STILL 11 SQUARES! But, I think just barely. By next week, who knows? I might be 198 or something.

I guess it is time for an update. I feel like the last week has flown by. I guess there has been a lot to do and lot of catching up to accomplish!
Saturday I went with a freind and her baby girl to Babies R Us to get her expert mommy opinions on baby stuff. I am really excited as our time to register is coming up fast! I spent that evening with friends. We ate, went to the park, and hung out together. It is always a lot of fun. A few of our friends came down for the night, so fun and funny, and then we left for an open house Sunday. Saw a lot of family and talked a lot of baby talk! It was a goooood time! I was so tired on the way home but we made it and then I fell asleep watching the Tigers.
Thanks to my mom for all the dog sitting on Saturday! That reminds me, my Friday gift from my mom was a travel wipes warmer. Didn't even know they made that. It came with an A/C adapter and a car charger. So, that is very neato!
My big appt. is Wednesday. I am looking forward to going. The time is just flying by. After all, by the end of this week, I will be half way there!
DH and I are trying to plan a fun getaway for the end of this week. Of course we are minding our dollars and cents so not sure where we might go. In less than 2 wks. we will paint the nursery, woohoo!
Thanks for checking in. Off to eat some breakfast!
I got the goods for you... Well, not the gender goods but here are some fun pics!
Baby Pic from 6/27 u/s:
My weekly belly shot from 6/26:
Aww... DH as a baby!
The OB appt. went okay. I was freaking out because the scale gave me weight gain news to the tune of 4 lbs from my last OB appt. one month ago. Granted, this is only a 2 lb. weight gain since I lost so much in the beginning, but STILL! She told me not to worry at all about it. We had a long conversation about whether or not to d/c the metformin. I was set to go off of it while I was there but now feel like I should remain on it. She said it is up to me but she has never had a patient that has stayed on it thru the 3rd tri. I know other docs do it and she consulted with a high risk doc and he said that there are ongoing clincial trials with women staying on it... The main reason I want to is because it helps PCOS mommies not to miscarry even though I am past the danger zone there. Also, it will help me not to get gestational diabetes since I am at high risk for it at this point due to PCOS and related insulin resistance. I guess I need to do some research.
DH got to come with me to both appts. The u/s was long b/c baby was overly active and didn't want to be poked. She made me get up and walk around and stuff b/c she couldn't get a shot of the heart like she wanted. The baby was moving so much and it was crazy to see it on the screen as well as finally feel it inside, too! Since we went to the local clinic instead of the big hospital for the u/s, the machine was not as terrific as I am used to getting pictures from. I also had to crane my neck to look where the hospital has a nice flat screen for me to stare at. Good thing I won't have to go there for anymore!
I am really looking forward to me next GROW appt. but that isn't until 8/3. I bet they will give me some sweet 3D pics at that appt. Woohoo!
DH, mom and I annoyed the baby enough last night to be able to feel it move from the outside. DH jumped when he felt it. It was funny. I liked seeing them both so happy over the little one, though!
DH and I are off for a MUCH needed break for a few days. Fun in the sun and all of that. Can't wait to get outta here!
Have a great weekend.

I cannot believe that I fell to page 2! Okay, I am gonna blame it on being away. I can't remember if I put this out there or not but my furniture is in and will be delivered on 7/13! I am so excited. We will be doing some painting this weekend in the nursery. I can't wait! DH and I are both off tomorrow. He is really looking forward to getting some cans from the park on the 4th. He has collected about $25 worth in the last two days. I am glad he likes to dig in the trash!
I have a belly pic from today for ya. Here it is!
I measured a 3/4 11 today with the bottom 1/4 being just over a 12! Woohoo! Mom are ya surprised I knew that fraction and how it makes a whole?? HA!
Nothing else new here. I work today and then am off until next Monday. Good for the soul, bad for the pocket books. Too bad I don't get paid for dreaming about my clients. I think I would have made A LOT of money last night!
See ya later!

Nothing new to report here. Baby has been less active over the last few days as I have been more active.
DH and I did some pricing compairson on some diapers and formula today. I still need prices from Sam's Club and somewhere else which right now is completely gone from my mind.
We went to Walmart and Meijer and Home Depot. No, no formula and diapers at the Depot but we needed some paint stuff for the nursery project. I have decided to start doing some 'cutting in' today to get things under way. Woohoo!
I will update with finished painting pics in the next few days! Wish us luck!
I am so tired. I was wondering if I needed to have my thyroid checked again. It is more than tiredness, I just have NO energy at all. My dear, sweet, lovely friend says it is probably just the heat zapping me and that she remembers feeling that both times when she was preggo in the summer. I will have to ask my doc to re-check my levels just to be sure.
The nursery walls and trim are done and I have tons of pics but they are not uploaded yet. We bought additional paint today to do the closet doors and door to the room and then it will be done. I am not sure if we will be doing them tonight or not b/c I am so pooped.
The power was out here a few hours this AM and I was miserable. The house got up to 81 degrees before it finally came back on. WHEW. Today is a hot one, for sure! My throat is feeling kinda sore but I hope it is just from the A/C... Wow, this is a big complaining post. SORRY!!!
Baby has been more active today which I have liked a lot. I think s/he likes it when I can rest at home. Isn't that ALL I do?!
Hopefully will update with pics tomorrow.
I know, I know. You have been waiting for these pics. We are halfway done with the door and closet doors and I want to touch up some of the yellow paint near the ceiling. Friday is quickly approaching. I know we can have it done by then though!
Our painting progress... BEFORE & AFTER:
That last pic is of some of the stuff from the nursery closet... had to put it all somewhere while we painted! Good thing the closet door wasn't open because then you really would have seen something funny- all of the baby clothes! YIKES!
On a side note, one of my favorite girls from my board has just experienced a horrible loss in her family. If you could say a prayer for her and her family I would appreciate it. It is just such a sad time for her.

Well, I am mostly a 12 on the TP count. Still part of it is in the 11 square but you get the picture.
Here is my belly shot:
Tons of fun.
I have to get moving as I need to shower and head out to work. Have a good day and thanks for checking in!

I am always wondering when it will go to page 4! Seems like we have been on page 3 for ages. Maybe that just means I need to post more often?!
While I am at it, I should write something baby oriented. Well, I am trying to pick a Graco SnugRide Travel System and the accessories that go with it. Trouble is, what BRU carries is really limited. Usually if they carry part of a design, they don't carry all of it which ticks me off because the whole point of registering is so that you get showered rather than having to buy stuff for yourself which it looks like I am going to have to do in the end with some of the pieces. Oh, the problems to have...
The patterns I am looking at are at gracobaby.com They are Fairfield, Devon, Grenada and Oakwood.
Baby Shower date has been moved since the place we were going to use is booked for the 29th. Will announce more info later.
Okay. So long for now.
Happy Birthday tomorrow to my grandpa!
So, slowly but surely, this week is coming to a close. I have been waiting and waiting for Friday to get here! I am so excited for Saturday too, though!
They think they have found a new place for the shower. Still looking at the same time frame but nothing set for sure yet. They sure are being really secretive. Looks like it will be in GB though.
I have to go paint the second side of the nursery door. I am really dreading it because it is boring and because I am so sick of cleaning up after I paint. We brought the closet doors up last night and hung them but decided the one coat wasn't going to do it. It is much brighter up there and we could see a lot better. So... we painted them AGAIN while they were hanging up. We figure we are in no hurry for the door to be put back since it would be in the way of the delivery men anyway. They said they would call today to let me know what time they will come tmw. but I haven't heard anything yet!
I feel kinda sleepy and may go take a short nap before DH gets here. It is so nice out today. Very windy- I like the wind. Speaking of which, I saw this windchime at Walgreens today. It was so neat. It was a bunch of dragonflies and had an LED light on it for night time. It was on sale 50% off but I figured I didn't NEED to have it.
I am off for now. Will post pics of furniture tmw!
