The speed that time flies will never cease to amaze me. I cannot believe our baby will be here within 15 weeks. That seems like the blink of an eye!
This week was a productive one in the Walker home! We did A LOT of work on the baby room. (Doesn't "baby room" sound wayyy cuter than "nursery?" I sure think so.) We finished painting, we put up an adorable lamp from Ikea, we got new carpet, AND we bought our baby room furniture and started assembling it all! I can't wait to show everyone pictures. But in the meantime, you'll all have to wait because I am one of these perfectionists that refuses to show people pictures of the incomplete (hence, I will never be a "proper" food blogger).
Anyways, here's this week's pregnancy log!
Life hack to keep the house warm during winter!
I'm starting to lose track of all of the shows Craig and I watch. Some of our shows, we are waiting for the newest season to be added to Netflix. Others, we watch
live the day after it airs on Hulu. I'm compiling a list here, mainly for my own benefit, but also as a recommendation to others because, let's face it, these shows are the cream of the crop.
1. Person of Interest - waiting for next season on Netflix
2. White Collar - waiting for next season to air
3. The Blacklist - watching the day after it airs!
4. Chuck - fell a little behind...we'll catch up eventually!
5. The Office - rewatching it...because we can!
I'm drawing a blank. I think that might be it. Anyone have any recommendations for us?
I'm starting to outgrow my pre-pregnancy clothes! Yesterday, feeling quite desperate, I placed an order on Asos for four maternity shirts. I figured, no one wants to see me tummy hanging out of my regular shirts!
I'm so ready for accessorizing and layering this fall/winter. This is my favorite kind of weather: boots, sweaters, and scarves weather! And now that I have some extra maternity style inspiration (thanks Anna Saccone!) I feel like I can handle putting together new outfits even with my extra baggage! :P
Anyways, I'm sitting here on the sofa [nearly unable to move because of the massive breakfast burrito I just ate] enjoying this rainy, fall day. I have so much to do but I can't bring myself to get moving...partly because I am full and partly because this shortness of breath thing is really getting the best of me. And that brings me to the main purpose of this post. Moms out there, have any of you experienced this paralyzing shortness of breath while pregnant? I know shortness of breath is a common pregnancy symptom, but I feel like I get it reeeeally bad to the point where I can't even function! Advice or suggestions, anyone?
Can I just be excited for a moment? I know this is what twitter is for...but I wanted to say a little more than 140 characters worth.
One more week til Craig's phone upgrade date. That means...one more week til I might possibly be able to get an iPhone 6!
I need to learn how to not count my chickens before they hatch.
Next week, I'll officially be 6 months pregnant! It's CRAZY how fast time is flying! The baby room is [nearly] done now and I am so excited to finally furnish it! Craig and I keep walking into the room and admiring our hard work....It's so surreal that in a few short months, when we walk in there, there will be a little baby inside too!
