28 Weeks...and House Pictures (FINALLY!)

28 weeks.  28 weeks.  I made it to the third trimester!  I can't believe this is already 2/3's over.  In just a few short months we are going to be able to actually meet our little girl!  She's real you know.  I felt her kick :)

My glucose screening test is on Tuesday (can't wait...) and I also have to get an Rh shot because apparently I am in the 20% of women who are Rh negative.  Great odds, huh?  But I took the day off, so score one for Jenny on that one! 

I have made some serious headway unpacking this week as my parents are visiting next weekend.  But did you know that when you're pregnant, you can't really do as much physical labor as you were able to do before?  I know, right?  Who knew?  I get winded pretty quickly and bending over to unpack a box has my abs feeling like I've been doing several hours of Pilates.  So with frequent breaks I have been able to knock out all of the upstairs and most of the office.  Yippee!

We're going to finish registering for the major tickets items this weekend as my sis is sending out the shower invites soon!  I cannot wait to have this registry done!  Then, you know, I can start receiving gifts :)  Ha!

So without further ado, here is my 28 week belly shot:


Girl is large and in charge.  How much bigger can I really get in 12 weeks?  Yikes.  Guess I'll just have to wait and see!

Now, some of you have been requesting house pictures!  I've been trying to hold you off until I got unpacked, but I figured you might want to see them before my little girl turns one so you'll have to excuse the boxes :)  Just pretend they're not there, okay?  And that we have furniture.

Up first, the dining room.  It is currently holding all of those items that were in the basement of our hold house that I know we don't need.  So I'm making Matt look through everything with me and for the love all that is holy please give some stuff away.  Until then, it will sit here.  Or until we buy a table.


This is looking into the living room from the dining room.  It is filled with a mixture of furniture that was in our old basement.  Low on the priority list to replace...so it will probably look like this for a few years.  But eventually it will be beautiful...
 

Also downstairs is the study.  It has really cool french doors which I wanted you to see.


I'm still in unpacking mode in this room and we have to build the desk/bookcase...but you get the idea.



That's all for now!  Still up, kitchen...family room...and all of the upstairs!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

glowing, momma! absolutely glowing! (or is that just sweat from unpacking?) i kid, i kid. the house looks amazing! i cant wait to see more.. no worries about the Rhogam shot. I got mine at 28 weeks, in my hip. Depending on the babe's blood type, you may need another after delivery. i was super lucky and carter ended up with MY blood type! (take that, husband!!) haha.. but hey, perfect excuse for a day off.. work it, girl! :) have a fab weekend!

is that awesome window in your study? LOVE it! And the french doors are great too with the window going across them. House is beautiful, so are you and your baby bump!

The house is beautiful! And you look great!
I'm Rh negative too, so I have to get that shot in 5 weeks. Along with my glucose test. Right after Thanksgiving. Awesome. Although my husband keeps reminding me that my blood sugar will have regulated a lot of times in the days between Thanksgiving and my glucose test, but I think I may just eat enough pie for it to be a problem! :)

Third trimester already! Wowza!!!! She'll be here before you know it. Thank you for finalllllllllllllly sharing some house photos with us. Now I believe you that you actually did buy a house. I was pretty sure you were lying.

I totally know what you mean about unpacking and moving into a new house. I just got done packing one house and in a week I'm unpacking everything into the new one. Not an easy job for a prego for sure! You look great though! And your house looks wonderful too! I'm excited to see more of it :-)

Lovin the house!

I am RH- too (I think it's about 15% of people) so I'll be in your same boat someday. No fun! But least now you can get the shot and it protects you. My Grandma was RH- and she only had 1 kid because she was worried the second would have RH disease.

Mama Dew said...

I was RH- too and at first I FREAKED out but it really is no big deal! I LOVE your study!!!

I'm moving in, fyi.

And I love the new house!!! Very exciting. Can't wait to see the rest of it :)
