22 Week Update

11798101_10155858115400007_1300776834_n22 Weeks! Time is still moving about the same, which I think has more to do with working full time than the pregnancy itself. I spend a lot of time on my feet which isn’t fun, but I’m walking a good bit, so it’s probably good for me at least.

I’m a little confused about the HUGE potential weight range for the baby this week? Like there’s only about an inch size range, but an 8 ounce difference is pretty significant at this point! Based on my weight not changing much, I’m going to guess the baby is still on the smaller side of the range, but I’m not a doctor. Continue reading


Baby Dresser/Changing Table Upcycle Project

10492205_10155812746740007_53245208307459050_n (1)So, in case you’ve forgotten, last week when my dad & sister were visiting, we picked up this really awesome dresser/changing table from a local thrift store. It’s exactly what we wanted, and it’s in really good condition, but… it was also plain white and had a few less than perfect spots. We weren’t really planning on going all out on a nursery, as I think I maybe mentioned before just based on the fact that we’re planning to move before the baby is very old, but I guess that’s not the case anymore, because our baby now is well on her way to an awesome Space themed room.

21 Week Update!

11778076_10155830582255007_1321286584_n21 weeks today! Lately I’ve been feeling like things are simultaneously flying by and also taking forever. This week, the baby is about 10.5 inches, or about the size of a pomegranate. Or a Philly Cheesesteak, which, you know, I’m a fan.

I just googled “what weighs 12 ounces, and apparently it’s about the weight of a can of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup, so that’s pretty hefty in there. More than I expected, anyway, since I still haven’t really gained much weight. Continue reading

20 Weeks — Halfway there!

11733435_10155805090160007_759485989_nI can’t believe I’m HALFWAY through being pregnant already!? I know I’ve only been blogging for about three weeks or whatever but I’ve been pregnant for 5 months and that’s insane. It’s FLOWN by, and I’m not at all complaining about that. This week the baby is about the size of a banana. I have such a weird relationship with bananas because I hate them but they’re the one food that I hate but make myself eat weekly. It’s also about the size of a burrito, which I want very much right now, thanks internet. Continue reading

Anatomy Scan Results!

I walked into the anatomy scan this morning (at 6:30 am, what the hell, guys.) still 100% unsure what I was going to do, but as I expected, the tech asked if we wanted to know the sex before she started and I looked at Chris and immediately said yes. I knew it was going to have to be a spontaneous decision, and it completely was.

AND… Continue reading
