26 Weeks....

Time seems to be flying by and I'm getting more nervous about being unprepared. Of course that is a fairly irrational thought because, trust me, we will be ready for Will's arrival. In fact, hubby and my dad are in the process of painting Will's room today....that will leave only the chair rail and stenciling to be done on the walls. Those things will be finished after Rich's sister leaves in a couple of weeks.

As for me physically, I'm feeling good most days. I'm starting to get really tired again but I'm not sleeping well. There is no comfortable position to get into for more than an hour or so. Oh not to mention the hundred bathroom trips that I have to make on a nightly basis. I'm thinking I'll be really used to this crazy no sleep thing by the time the baby gets here?

On a fun note, Baby Will moves a lot! In fact there have been a few times when I think he has actually tried to take out a rib or two. He must be a strong little boy...guess all that laziness and rest during the first 23-24 weeks helped him build big muscles? And for the record, this baby is just like his mommy - loves food! When I eat he goes crazy!

Speaking of food - I have my doctor's appt. in 2 weeks and I'm dreading the scale. Let's just say that 2 baby showers in one month is a bad idea! Too much cake!! I have finally purged my house of the evil devices but not by the modern practices like throwing it away - nope by much more traditional methods - like EATING it! But WOW it was good. Chocolate/Vanilla marble with strawberry filling and whipped cream come on, who could say no to that?? So for the next two weeks I've got to step it up and get my butt back in gear. That means no less than 4 trips to the gym a week and no more sugar! I stocked up on apples and VitaTops.......they aren't marble cake with strawberry filling but they also aren't 500 calories a slice! The next shower is on the 28th of this month and I'm sooo excited about it. This one will have our families and my husband's sister from Boston. I can't wait to see everyone and just hang out. We kind of opted to do a really casual baby shower/lunch so that everyone can enjoy seeing Tracy (DH's sis) and rub the belly.

Okay guess I should get to work - I have pictures of the nursery before and hopefully today I'll have pictures of it painted......we are going with Cocoa Butter on the top of the walls and Big Sky on the bottom with a white chair rail seperating the 2. So think creamy sunshine yellow on the top and baby boy blue on the bottom. Of course then I have to go in and stencil in the lily pad/frogs and pussy willows. I hope it turns out well!

Talk to you all soon!!

I am so sorry you are not sleeping! And the million trips to the bathroom. I am, thanfully, blessed with a bladder the size of Alaska so I never got up in the night to pee. But I remember the uncomfortable-ness of the belly and trying to find a position to sleep in. :)

I can't believe you are 26 weeks! That's insane! Can't wait to see the nursery pics.
