Progress





Well, I'm down to the single digits now. 9 weeks left. Crazy! Although, I feel like this is about as big as I got at 9 months with Eden. I think my belly button would concur as well. Poor little thing has practically disappeared. This little peanut is just as active, if not more so, as Eden was in the womb. Of course, her most active time is when i am attempting to fall asleep in the evening. I will say that Tums are my new best friend. The heartburn has not been bad by any means, but definitely present. With my first pregnancy, I was mega paranoid about ingesting anything that you could purchase in the pharmacy section of your local grocer...don't ask why(....those crazy first time Mom's are full of all sorts of ideas). I decided to step outside of my little coo-coo box and try tums to help alleviate the minor discomfort in my throat. And guess what....it worked! Shocking, I know.
Anyway, we have been working on projects around the house to not only prepare for this new little squirt, but also to try to beat the cold weather and improve our surroundings a little at a time. Jeremy takes on the larger projects and puts up with my "suggestions" while I try to get things organized. Jeremy finished painting the nursery. Pink, of course. We weren't able to do much of a nursery when Eden was a baby because we lived in an apartment, and Jer was still in school. Back in the day, we budgeted $10 a month for "personal spending money". Needless to say, there wasn't much left over for baby decor.
So, it has been fun this time around to be able to do that. As you can see, it is going to be a very girly room. We chose Pink and White as our overall colors with a little bit of green and black for accents. We have yet to really decorate, but have made progress by finishing the painting and putting the crib together.
Jer's Mom made peanut#2 (yes, we are still trying to agree on a name) a beautiful blanket/quilt that matches the bedding perfectly. Thanks, Diane!
This picture of me is at 30 weeks. Is it just me, or do I look large? Honestly, it is hard to believe that she still has 9 more weeks to grow...I think I'm in trouble.

I think you look cute! The nursery looks great too. Time is ticking! Please call if you need a nap, we would be happy to have Eden come play!

The room looks great! Very Girl.

Are you still coming on the photowalk tomorrow? We would really love to see you there.

You look fantastic! It's just this cute little baby bump in front of you. I love the baby room too, it's darling- We were able to paint Jack's room because he didn't come quite when we thought he would- and I love the green and tan rather than just the white. It makes it fun to go in there.

Haha, you look adorable- I love the belly. You do look further along than 30 weeks- must be a big baby! Or maybe its just because the rest of you is so slender compared to the belly.
I love the room- gorgeous quilt! I hope I have a girl someday- just so I can decorate a girls room and buy girly clothes. It must be so much fun.

You are so cute and yes I remember you. How are things going? It's been so long I think the last time we saw each other was a year ago at Gardner Village.

You truly are stunning, Annie! Looking at your picture made me realize what people mean when they say, "You are glowing!" You look great and you look so happy. Your girls (Eden and squirt #2) are so lucky to have such a great mom. I love the nursery too! What a lucky baby girl to have such a great room to come home to!

I love the nursery- and to me you are aboslutely TINY!! Have you even gained any weight anywhere else- but your belly?? You look beautiful:)

Brooke said...

I've been hoping you'd post another preggo pic...yeah! You look great! So cute! And, I agree with everyone else--you just have a cute belly and are tiny everywhere else. The crib and room look so cute! I feel bad cuz with Emelyn, I didn't really prepare anything as far as a "theme" or for her room...probably because of our situation right now. But, I kind of felt like she got cheated--Ellee had her name on the wall and all kinds of ladybug stuff everywhere. Poor Emelyn! Oh well. And...good luck with the name! :) I keep needing to e-mail you and one of these days I will--they just always turn into novels when I write you...kind of like this comment now. :) Good luck with everything!

Andrea, I know everyone's saying it, but you look FANTASTIC! Congrats on being so beautiful pregnant. What a fun thing. Love, love the crib. What a lucky girl...

Cansas said...

You look great! We didn't have a cute decorated nursery with Gavin either. The second one will be more fun in that department. Happy decorating!
