around the house
it's finals week around these parts, and things are starting to get real!
i hit the 20 week halfway mark last week, and i can't even believe it. there are still people who are like, "wait, you're half way? you don't even look pregnant at all!" thanks.
i was going to have nick take some pictures of me today to show off the bump that is really there, buuuuuut this weather decided to strike me down with a migraine. (does anyone else have gloomy weather as a migraine trigger?) and my hair wasn't going to have any of that.
i feel like i have to clean, organize, and decorate the entire house. luckily nick likes plants, so i was allowed to add lots of green to our decor over Easter weekend. now that my workload isn't giganto, i'm filling my time with other things like spending money and making nick move big things around for me. we also got such an amazing deal on a practically new front loading washer/dryer set. i could cry! we haven't had our own washer/dryer for years and it's exactly what we need with a little one coming. someone up there is looking out for us, that's for sure. from the same people, we also got a baby food processor, humidifier, and some other baby things. baby things. we're buying baby things.
speaking of the littlest nugget, despite the return of morning sickness (boo!) the biggest thing with baby recently is feeling little kicks & wiggles! it's for reals now. no mistaking it for gas bubbles anymore. they're especially active while i'm sleeping/laying down or after i eat chocolate. if i'm laying flat on my back, i can see my belly move. nick can even feel it. it's so so magical!
to kick off the summer.. i'll probably buy myself some maternity pants. i've held off for this long, but after wearing only skirts and leggings for the past few weeks i feel it's finally time.
