|The night I went into labor. I was SO ready!|

Darren is really into golf, and I didn't want a "babyish" nursery, so we opted for something different and made our own golf nursery for baby David! It was a lot of work-for mom and Darren anyway-I was too huge to do anything-but it was totally worth it and we love it!
|It started out as the spare room that we never painted when we moved in. It was super girly!|
|Darren worked hard to get it just right!|
|The finished product! We love it!|

How far along? As of today, 29 weeks!
Total weight gain/measurements: If you recall my last blog post I’d gained 0 lbs. Wellll that’s not the case anymore! At my last doctor appointment 3 weeks ago I’d gained a total of 13 I believe. Strangely enough I didn't start gaining until about the last month and a half. Now I feel like I am getting bigger by the second! At that appointment the baby was also measuring 3 weeks ahead. YIKES! Anxious to see what the doc says about baby's size at Friday's appointment.
Maternity clothes: The good old days of just the stretchy 1st trimester waistband pants are now long gone. I have embraced the full panel. This bump is massive. Sometimes I steal Darren’s shirts because mine are just too snug at night.
Have you started to show yet? Ohhh yes. In the last month I have popped out like crazy.
Stretch marks: Not yet, I’m sure they’re on the way! In the meantime I’ve been using some Earth Mama Angel Baby stretch oil and hoping it helps.
Sleep: Terrible. I wake up about every hour to pee, or because I can’t breathe, or I’m just uncomfortable. Is it June yet?
Miss anything? Energy, sleep, being able to see my feet, being able to lay on my back without my body going numb. HA
Movement: SO much movement. This kid is nuts. He is constantly on the move!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular at this point, I just want good, real, homemade food. And some junk. Really all food is great at this point!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope. Maybe other than the thought that I still have a good two months left of this pregnancy!
Gender: Found out week 20, it’s a boy!!!
Labor signs: Nope, too early.
Symptoms: Tired, SPD since early January…omg that sucks, feet are starting to swell in the past week and hands by the end of the day.
Belly button in or out? Half out!
Wedding rings on or off? On for now, but I got replacements just in case. I’ve been wearing just my engagement ring for now, both rings together just seem too snug…but the engagement ring was tight today!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time
Thankful for: Healthy baby so far and a mostly healthy pregnancy. Thankful that this will be over in a couple of months. Thankful for my first shower recently that was so fun and adorable!
Looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery, my Richmond shower, baby being born!
