27 Weeks!

27 weeks people!  My little girl is a whole 2 lbs. now!  Believe me, I can tell.  I feel like my belly has expanded exponentially in the last few weeks.  She's a growin'! 

P.S.  So are my boobs.  How they can still be growing I have no idea.  When I was doing laundry on Sunday, I tried to put on one of my old bras and I couldn't even get it around my waist to fasten it!  INSANE!  Putting clothes on that I haven't tried on in a while is SO not my idea of fun...

Along with her growth spurts I have developed back pain and more severe leg cramps.  You know the kind that wake you up and you have to get out of bed and walk around to make them stop?  Yeah.  That's what I have.  But I'm soaking up as many massages as I can from the that's a plus! 

Also, I'm feeling a bit more prepared for our little one's arrival.  We have nailed down some pieces of furniture to order...just waiting on some info about our glider and then we're golden.  What do you think??

I'm pretty much in love with it.  I didn't think I would get black furniture as I was leaning toward more of a pink/brown theme....but as soon as I saw this crib I knew it had to be mine :)  Good thing I waited to paint/decorate!  Ha!

We're also going to register this weekend!  I have started already online and made a serious dent, but I think a trip to the store is in order.  So that should be an adventure!

I have a doctor's appointment today and then in about a week I go for my glucose test.  Yum.  Not.  Hopefully all goes well with that and I know getting it done and out of the way will be a load off of my mind. 

I have been feeling her moving more and more lately, but I still feel behind in this area.  The only time I feel definite kicks/punches is at night when I roll over a bit too fast and she says, "Mom!  Stop!  I was trying to sleep!"  But other than that, it's more of a bubble feeling throughout the day.  How am I supposed to start counting kicks when I can't tell what the heck are kicks?  Blech.

I'm starting to have some serious issues getting up off the couch.  It's fairly low to the ground to begin with and it is just not a pretty sight.  Also, I discovered last night that my favorite position to sit on the couch is no longer working out.  You see, I'm crazy.  Apparently I cannot just sit on a couch like a normal person.  I must have my feet up at all times.  Not all sprawled out laying down or anything.  Just criss-crossed or folded up or something.  I didn't really know I did this until a few years ago when Matt told me.  And it's so true.  But now, having my legs all curled up squishes my stomach and it is not comfortable.  So you'd think I'd resort to sitting like a normal human being?  Nope.  Insert foot stool.

Today, you get the privilege of a t-shirt pic :)  I had to sport my Purdue shirt as they are playing Ohio State tomorrow and I need to represent.  Enjoy..

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  We're having company on Sunday....our first guests to our new house!  So, clearly I will be cleaning :)

it all sounds so fun! You still look great of course! LOVE the crib! I remember those leg cramps well, I learned very quickly to stop stretching my legs out, it never ended up being worth it! Oh, and sure wish I had an excuse for why it's hard for me to get off the couch! loll

I do the same thing with my legs/feet! This? Is why we're friends. OK, now I'm off to stalk your baby registry and actually buy you something that you actually need rather thanthe 500 pieces of clothing I have already bought for your baby. And I'm not kidding.

You look so great! And I'm glad I'm not the only one with couch sitting problems! I also like to sit with my legs up and since we don't have a foot stool, I'm actually going to purchase one because its so awkward to find a good way to sit.
