April 2015 Recap

April 2015 Recap

1) It’s kumquat and meyer lemon juicing season once again
2) If you haven’t heard of the Chinese app #myidol do a quick search. It’s a pretty hilarious time suck.
3) Nate got me a GoPro for Christmas and I am still trying to figure it all out.
4) Our CKM Lady Lions get the key to the city.
5) I have been obsessed with Inspector Lewis and now that I am all caught up I am very sad.
6) A sweet co-worker gave me a baby gift out of the blue.
7) I finally picked the fabric for the dining room chairs (and got it 50% off).
8) Nate and Dean are working on our concrete shower panels for the prison bath. Nate loves them.
9) At work, I constantly have to remind myself to lean back so I don’t tweak it leaning over my belly.

Pregnancy Update: Week 34

Pregnancy Week 34

This week, Nate and I feel pretty ready for this kid. We have a few high priority tasks to complete, but overall we have all the necessities (car seats, onesies, diapers, etc.). Now it’s just a matter of finishing the small tasks, my to-do list at work and practicing our breathing techniques!

Highlights of Week 34

  • I am sleeping really well, but it’s difficult to get up and moving in the morning.
  • I am still doing my Tracy Anderson DVD, but have cut back on long walks. I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to swim!
  • We had our second baby shower hosted by four of my dearest friends. It was a co-ed event at our house and so much fun. Highlight was the baby gift bingo and having Nate open all the gifts. I laughed so hard at his descriptions. It was adorable.
  • Pregnancy Update: Weeks 32-33

    Pregnancy: Weeks 32-33

    Well, I finally feel like I am super pregnant. The belly has grown so much! Nate and I took our labor & delivery class and now have a little more knowledge on what to expect when labor comes and coping mechanisms.

    Highlights of Weeks 32 & 33

  • Feeling really big and super pregnant now.
  • I need to be drinking more water, but I hate going to the restroom all the time.
  • I am still obsessed with fruit popsicles.
  • Nate and I went to our one-day labor and delivery class and it was so worthwhile. Recommend any first time parents taking one!
  • For the nursery, we got our crib and changing table in and generally organized the nursery.
  • We met with a good friend of ours who runs a daycare. She will be watching the baby three days a week starting in September. We are still considering options for the other two work days.
