i’ve finally decided to put my nursery prints up for sale on etsy. i’m a little bit nervous about actually being able to sell them, but we’ll see how things go. i did a lot of searching for both price and style comparison. i didn’t see a lot of work that even closely resembled mine, so i hope that someone out there in etsy-land likes them.Share your thoughts?
36 weeks, 4 days. note the exercise ball that doubles as my office chair. note the round belly. (please don’t note the tired look on my face. no, really. don’t notice.) now, which is more round? that’s a good question. it depends on how the baby decides to settle in my belly—i’ve had some very, very lumpy moments.Share your thoughts?
i never tire of potato soup and a blt on wednesdays. it’s like pregnancy comfort food for me. yum.Share your thoughts?
i definitely can feel myself starting to slow down. my body is getting ready to give birth. it’s aching and stretching and changing. i’m tired. i’m excited. my feet are swollen by the end of the day and my wedding ring is finally getting a little too snug to be comfortable. i’m still nesting like crazy. i want to sew, to organize, to make, but sometimes other things in life get in the way and it’s very strangely frustrating on a hormonal level.
the baby’s been moving a lot. it’s not leaning to the left as much as usual, but seems to have found the center, though it occasionally hangs out against its favorite side. oh, and its feet! i feel like i’m getting kicked all the time, and i can see the little nubby heels roll across my belly under my ribs all the time now. i’m a little squeamish about the whole thing, but the movements often tickle or sometimes hurt and are always cute, regardless.
it’s pretty amazing what our bodies can do, and it’s even crazier what another whole person inside feels like.Share your thoughts?
4(ish) weeks left to go. how did time fly by so fast?
next week, i’ll be full term.
i’m excited and nervous at the same time. will i really be overdue? will i be early? will we be meeting a baby E or a baby A? so many questions … so little time to worry about them. slowly, it’s all settling in. the end of my pregnancy will mark the beginning of so much newness in our lives. i don’t think there are enough words to describe them, let alone anticipate them.
everything will be changing, but it’s my prayer it’ll all be in amazingly awesome good ways.Share your thoughts?
after a lovely baby shower on saturday (thanks, ladies! it was really great!), i thought i should post an update on nursery progress. i even finished sewing the crib skirt this weekend, so i feel really accomplished! now, all that’s left is the crib bumper and possibly a blanket. i also now have a rocking chair to make a cover for so that it matches the rest of the room. can i accomplish this all before the baby comes? we’ll see!
liners and cloth wipes made by me, with a few other diapering accessories waiting for a changing table to sit on.
digital art i made and ordered printed on canvas, along with the mobile i made.
the fitted crib sheet and the crib skirt i sewed myself.
time is growing short and anticipation is building. i really can’t wait to meet our baby.Share your thoughts?
