Breakdown of my week:

My work fam moved this week, and it was super hectic, as all moves are. The new house is still being renovated, which didn't help the situation (although it is a GORGEOUS house, and will be even more amazing when it's done! Exciting!). All of us were out of sorts, especially the kids. We tried to keep them as happy as possible, but it's emotional seeing all your stuff get packed away and not being able to find your favorite toys. And for my little buddy, being so young, he just didn't know what to make of the chaos. I had him at my house all day Wednesday and Thursday to keep him out of the way. We went shopping, watched movies, played with Nym, and even had a playdate with Chloe. She was so good with him! Unfortunately, he was tired and fussy from not sleeping well because of all the newness. I felt quite accomplished when I got him to nap on time in my very own Pack n Play on Thursday, and by the end of the day, he was playing piano with me and dancing to Eric's guitar jams. It was pretty adorable. During these days, I also discovered how very UNchildproofed my house is. I definitely got a workout chasing that kid around!

Eric and I have BOTH been sick with sinus issues. Our Thursday night was spent figuring out how to use a neti pot. Our Friday night was spent doing nothing. Saturday, we cleaned and watched a Janis Joplin documentary (I love her), and then I took a nap. When I woke up, I treated myself to Starbucks, because that's EXACTLY what a sick, exhausted pregnant lady with a migraine should have. Haters gonna hate.

How far along?  30 WEEKS! Baby Mazz is as big as a "platypus, without the tail," according to this app, hahahahaha. This feels like a big milestone. 30 weeks, I mean. Not being the size of a platypus minus the tail. I remember finding out I was pregnant at maybe 4 weeks along, feeling so incredibly nauseous and terrified, and having to keep it all to myself for months. Time is flying by like crazy now.

These are PRE-PREGNANCY shorts!... albeit they were two sizes too big for me at the time I got pregnant. Hehe.
Total weight gain/measurements: I don't feel like I put on another 8 lbs., but we'll see at my doctor appoint this upcoming Friday... 

Maternity clothes: Nothing new

Stretch marks: It has happened. I have a few white ones on my hips. It's whatever. I knew it would happen sooner or later. I am trying to avoid ones on my tummy, but there's not much I can do about it. It is what it is.

Sleep: Do I even need to say it? BAD.

Best moment this week: SETTING UP THE NURSERY! That's right! Our furniture was finally delivered last night. We put it together and started getting things organized immediately. Today, I went and dropped a shitload of money in the black hole known as Target. All necessary things for the room, of course... After a couple of hours, all the clothes we have were put away in drawers or bins and all the shower gifts were put in their proper places or stored for future use. I feel SO. ACCOMPLISHED. I can't believe a master procrastinator such as myself got an entire room organized in less than 24 hours... and LIKED IT. What is happening to me?

The futon that was in Eric's office is now in the baby room, instead of a glider. It's actually pretty comfortable, and will give me an actual bed in that room if I want one.
We will be hanging the shelves on the wall there, and that lamp is going to be replaced with a MUCH cuter lamp. 
The diaper genie will be hidden out of sight from the doorway, and a basket for toys is on the other side of the dresser. Right now, I have a basket on top there for lotions and diaper creams that will need to be easily accessible. Eventually, wipes will go up there, too. 
Little animals and a guitar pillow, some homemade blankets, and of course a lightning bolt blanket ;) Obviously, this stuff will all need to be removed from the crib once he starts sleeping in it. 
Eric has already gotten started on artwork for the walls, and I CAN'T WAIT until it's done!!! EEEEEE it's going to be super awesome!
Everything is teal right now, but we also have alternate sheets, blankets, changing pad covers, etc. that will add pops of orange and green into it. Just depends on our mood. :)
So, it's really far from done, but it's definitely getting there. I'll post updated pictures when we make more progress on it! Maybe, if I feel confident enough in my organizational skills, I will even post how I organized the drawers and closet... but don't get your hopes up. ;)

Miss anything? I want an alcoholic beverage. :(

Movement: Still going crazy at all hours of the night, but now I feel him more often during the day, too. He started pushing against my ribs and hip bones. AND he got the hiccups a couple times!

Food cravings: Okay, I went and bought dark chocolate Digestive biscuits. If you don't know what they are, start getting your British on. They know what's up with their sweets. I've been eating lots of fruit as usual to satisfy my sweet tooth though.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope!

Gender: PENIS!

Labour signs: No. I watched a little emotional clip my friend posted on Facebook about a preemie born four months early and SOBBED. I don't want him to be late, but I definitely want him to cook in there til he's good and ready. 

Symptoms: Heartburn, indigestion, random swelling in my ankles sometimes, restless legs, peeing 76987969 times in 10 minutes...

Belly button in or out? Outie

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: This week was definitely moody and more emotional. Some of that might be hormones, but a lot of it was being exhausted, sick (yes, still), and working a ton on top of it.

Looking forward to: Finishing the nursery! Eric's thing he is working on right now is SO COOL I can't handle it. Having unique, self-made decorations will add so much meaning to the room.
