Baby K Update:

12 Mar

Lets get this out of the way….I am by far the worst blogger in the world. My last post was 6 days ago but for good reason! This month I have 7 scentsy events booked. 6 of them occurred in a less than a week period! After the events it was either too late or I was too tired to post. But I am back at it.

Baby K is now 17 weeks as of Sunday March 10th.

Highlights of the past week and a half:

  • My stomach has doubled in size, despite only showing a 1 lb difference from last week. I will take it if the baby gets bigger but the scale doesnt šŸ˜‰Ā

This photo was at some point during week 16. This week it is a bit bigger.Ā 

  • Pretty much every food makes me nauseous, which is fine because I eat a lot in small amounts through the day and that seems to help.
  • I have ALOT more energy but the amount of things I can do exercise wise are decreasing. Modifications have to be made to everything. Even my beloved running, however I will just be decreasing my mileage to 12-15 miles a week and keeping up my training for the 5ks I have left on my race schedule!
  • Finally Baby K is LITERALLY the most spoiled unborn baby ever, aside from Prince Williams and Kim Kardashians of course. But for the middle class I think this baby is taking the cake. The reason I think both sets of parents, (and my aunts who think of me as their daughter) are excited for the first grandchild!

Yesterday the baby received more gifts:

My Aunt Tamarra gave me a porcelain plate and cup that had been mine as a child, obviously not to use because a kid would smash that thing. She also gave me these which I love.

Then I arrived home last night from a Scentsy meeting to find Dan had picked up our crib and dresser from Babies R Us. I was so surprised. But even more surprised when Dan told me the baby shower gift from My Parents (Moms idea) had arrived. I was confused, and even more confused when we went into the mud room and these were there.

Brand new Kenmore Elite washer and dryers and they are purple!!! See Mom wanted to buy us the crib, but because of the sale with the free mattress I figured we could buy it ourselves, not knowing her plan. So her and Dan went last Thursday and bought these and they were delivered last night. Since I plan on cloth diapering Mom decided we needed a really good washer and dryer! I was so excited since the ones that came with the house were old and probably close to being if not, the originals from 1995. I can’t wait to give these things a try. Clearly I am going into Mom mode already as a new washer and dryer is the most exciting thing that has happened to me lately!

As the weeks go by more and more I get more excited and so does Dan. Today I bought our paint for the nursery. Our plan is to get started on that asap. See the problem/benefit of our job is we get busy March-October. The bad thing is our busiest season is May-August, prime time for when the baby is coming/here, so it is do it now or be half done with Little K pops out!

Tomorrow is my 16 week appointment. It was supposed to be on Friday but because of the snowstorm it was rescheduled, I am excited to hear babies heartbeat and make our ultra sound appointment to find out the gender.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!
