My life works in weeks now…as I’m sure it does for every pregnant woman. I had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and everything is right on track! I thought about filming a pregnancy vlog but honestly there wasn’t much to talk about so I didn’t. She’s checking my cervix at my next appointment though so maybe I will have more of an update then. I am however filming The Pregnancy Tag and that will be up on Monday. It’s a collab with another pregnant lady so that should be fun!
It’s a rainy day here in Texas which makes the nesting 100 times more intense. And I spend a fair majority of my days in the nursery…just sitting in there…sometimes reading, sometimes working on decorating, sometimes folding tiny baby clothes. I’ve said it before but it is my favorite room in the house. I just have one more thing left to get and then I will post pictures of it, I promise.
My parents booked their flights to come here for Christmas! I am really hoping that Baby Nile decides to show up while they are here. I am so excited to see them…I saw my Mom in Phoenix at my baby shower but it’s been much too long since I’ve seen my Dad. It’s not good for the soul to go this long without seeing him.
Let me just say that putting together a Pack N Play is no easy task. I finally went and bought one the other day and spent an hour trying to put it together…only to find out some of Kane’s coworkers had just ordered us the really nice one off of our registry. Soooo I had to completely disassemble the one I had just put together. But don’t get me wrong, I am super grateful that they bought us the one we wanted!! I think I’ll let Kane put that one together though.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? I can’t! I remember thinking how awesome being pregnant at Thanksgiving was going to be…I figured I could eat as much as I wanted without feeling guilty because you know, I’m pregnant. But come to find out this baby takes up a lot of room…which doesn’t leave much for food. So that plan is out the window. It’s just going to be the two of us this year and I’m actually really excited about that. Our last Thanksgiving before we become a family of three. I might even get out the video camera and make a little vlog. I think that would be fun and special to remember this holiday season. Oh and I’ve been dying to put our Christmas tree up (I think it’s part of the nesting) so we are going to do that Thanksgiving day after we eat!
Any Scandal fans out there? I just watched the winter finale for that and Grey’s Anatomy. I can’t believe we have to wait until January 29th to find out what happens! (And I just realized I will totally have a baby by then…crazy!) I haven’t watched How To Get Away With Murder yet though…I think we will watch that tonight because Kane’s invested in that one as well. I’ve read some headlines today and it sounds like it was a good episode!
I’ve gained my weight pretty steadily this whole pregnancy but I think this last month might be where I get a little out of control. I have had an insane sweet tooth plus the urge to bake…which is a deadly combination. I made cinnamon muffins (out of a box…nothing fancy), a giant cookie pie and cookie butter rice krispies. These were all spread out over a few weeks people…let’s not get too crazy. But I have been eyeing this recipe for an apple crisp so that might be happening later today. Apples are healthy, right?
That’s enough rambling for one Friday. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
