This is basically the halfway point and I feel my baby move! At this particular week women go for what is called an anatomy scan to get the baby’s measurements and to see if they are growing adequately. My baby is on track and her legs and feet are long. Well, that is expected, being that I am a 6 footer and her Dad is just as tall as me. Every day her kicks are getting stronger and it is making me fall more and more in love with my baby. I have also become obsessed with my baby shower planning and making sure my registries are complete. Pinterest has become the place for all ideas that I am thinking of.  I also found a sale on a 4 in one crib for a decent price at Target So Awesome!

Busy Worker Bee

 

Has it been busy?

YES! I am excited to have energy to do a lot lately. I just literally finished moving into my new place, and I am in decorate mode. Anyone who knows me, knows I do not usually decorate anything, but My house is about to have an addition and I have officially begun to nest. I am also starting to work out the details of my baby shower and I am excited, and busy! School is also slightly demanding and I take naps in between writing papers and reading chapters. So between Registries, working out the logistics of the baby shower, studying, being a pet parent, trying to hang out with family and friends, I am BOOKED. Naps are essential at this point.

Up and coming this week is my 20 week ultrasound. I cannot believe I have been pregnant for almost 5 months. This is cray. I am beginning to feel normal and even forget I am pregnant sometimes and forget I cannot lift or bend over to get things with out my belly getting in the way. I’ve already taken a tumble or two. LOL I am naturally clumsy, so forgetting about the extra weight in the front of my body happens a lot. Just yesterday, I miscalculated sitting on the exercise ball and fell flat on my butt (Luckily there is a lot of cushion back there 😉 ) This confession is not to alarm you, but to let people know I am not made of glass or as fragile as my condition seems.  I can still do active things, take a small tumble on my butt and be okay. If my mother is reading this she is terrified for her grandchild. LOL tell her not to worry.

This weekend, me and my mom went to a family friends baby shower, we had a blast! It was fun and I enjoyed seeing one of my Childhood friends being celebrated. I think I am beginning to get a tad bit sentimental. I will be running a 5k at the beginning of the month and volunteering at the MS150. Excited!!!!! So I am trying to do this all at the same time. I like to stay busy. Life is cooler that way. Until next time! IMG_3095[1]
