School is officially out for the summer and I have really been enjoying my downtime. I have been taking a nap everyday and it feels so good to rest! Tal and I have been busy so far. I have traveled to Olympia three times in the last three weeks for a bachelorette party, wedding, and to visit family. I finally got to reveal to my dad that we are having a girl. He tried to keep it a surprise until she arrived but it just got to be too hard with everyone else knowing. He was excited of course.
I have been hitting up garage sales here and there and have picked up some more clothes, toys, and a couple of baskets for organization. Tal and I started our registry at Babies R Us and also bought our crib and crib mattress there last week. I cannot wait to go back and go crazy with that little "gun" they give you. It is so much fun to pick things out for our little baby girl!
We have started picking things out for the nursery too. I ordered some crib fabric from dwellstudio.com and I would really like to wallpaper a wall in her room with a fun geometric print. I found a couple of stores to go and check out this week. I really want an organized, modern looking nursery. I don't want something too bright or girly, no pink walls for us. I will keep you posted on what we come up with.
We had our monthly OB checkup this morning and everything is looking good. Baby girl's heartbeat was loud and strong at 150 beats per minute. My doctor said I was measuring around 26 cm though which is a little big for 23 1/2 weeks. I have gained 5 pounds which made me feel good since I have been trying to watch what I eat and am still walking and doing yoga. We have an ultrasound tomorrow to check on baby since I am measuring bigger. We will find out what is going on with our girl. I also have my glucose screening for Gestational Diabetes on Wednesday morning. I am really not looking forward to drinking that yummy stuff they give you, I've heard it is disgusting, but I figure I will plug my nose and take it down like a true Coug!
This coming weekend is my family's annual family reunion. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and also showing off my growing bump. Usually we camp, but this year we are really close to the campground so we are going to sleep at home. I think I will be much more comfortable that way too.
I have been feeling really great. Still liking my sleep and rest. I golfed with my dad this last weekend and walked most of the 9 holes. It was nice to have a cart for when I got tired. Tal and I are golfing tomorrow morning so I will get in another nice walk. The one thing I notice is how tired I get really quickly. Luckily I have summer to get my rest!
Until next time!!
