My Appointment

We went to my appointment today I was gone from work for 4 hours and they took my blood 4 times. blah! My arms hurt. I did actually fall asleep in the waiting room and I did get a lot of my book read. Anyways thought I'd let ya'll know that I went to it today and I survived. They tend not to tell me when the appointments or tests go well they only call when its bad or I need to be retested.

oh and by the way we did register last week. we registered at Babies R Us and at Target. It was fun. We registered for most of our stuff that we need at Babies R Us and then the small stuff at Target.

Anyways. I'm going to go now we are about to put up the moulding in TJ's room.

see ya!!


TJ’s Nursery

Okay so we finally started working on the nursery this weekend....

I started getting stressed out about it because I always need a plan in place and when we started figuring out what all we needed to get started all we needed was paint and some supplies so we headed out to Home Depot.

Here are some before pictures with the carpet taken out. (My parents are going to put in lamenate floors. The carpet was pretty bad in there)

Here's what I looked like while I was painting. I couldn't smell a thing. I look pretty silly huh?

Tim painting. we didn't take any pictures of me painting because I looked pretty ridiculous. 

And here is the after shots I took when it dried. We will be putting the molding up on tuesday so it will look a lot better then. We know it doesn't look like a little boy's room but we aren't very typical and it will be super cute and grow with him as he gets older. He will have black furniture and some pretty cool decorations. I'll post more once we get more done.


Me And The Baby

Okay so I had another Doctor's appointment today and everything went well. I didn't gain any weight and my blood pressure was slightly high (nothing to be concerned about). I was so glad to hear that I didn't gain any weight in the past 2 weeks.
After the last appointment I've been having some swelling issues. My mom has been helping me cut down on the sodium and my friend Brandie told me about this trick. You take unsweatened cranberry juice and mix it with water and the swelling will go down....I'm telling you this works. Its not the greatest thing to drink but its soooo worth it. Thanks Brandie! The swelling has gotten much better.

I did get a call on Wednesday from the nurse about my results on my blood sugar level. She said it was pretty high and that I needed to come back in for the 3 hour test. When I scheduled the appointment i verified with them when I was to not eat and they said I could have lunch and that would be fine....NOT!

The doctor did say today when I was there that TJ was very happy and wiggling around good.

My 3 hour appointment is on Tuesday morning and my next regular appointment is on February 4th.

I'll keep the updates coming. Only 12 weeks left!!!


Just Over 6 Months

I had my doctor's appointment today. Everything was good I gained some more weight....let me tell you it was more than i wanted to hear but I'm still doing good. Yesterday I was officailly 26 weeks prengnant. One day it feels like TJ doesn't fit and everything is tight and it hurts to move and then others I'm full of energy and I feel great. I guess that's just pregnancy for you. My doctor did say I would be going to every 2 weeks for my appointments now so I go again on the 18th. We are on the home stretch people. My appointment today was extra long because they had to do the glucouse test...blah I don't like getting my blood taken well at least not while I'm pregnany I get so lightheaded to quickly that it sucks. And to top it off Tim couldn't be there with me like he normally is because our office building has been having problems with the pipes and the water will leak. Since the water leaks they turn the system off well when you have a building full of flamable chemicals you kinda HAVE to have a fire alarm in place. Which brings me to the point why Tim wasn't there....He is part of the fire watch and is having to sit up there from 4-10 tonight. I think this is like the 4th time he's done this. Its nice on the overtime but not nice on Katie time.

In case you didn't know Sarah, Tim's sister was pregnant and had her baby girl this last weekend. We were up at the hospital alot with her and have seen them a couple of times at home. She is too cute and Tim just absolutley adores her. I can't wait to see him with TJ. They have settled in nicely and are getting into the swing of things. I have some pictures of Piper in the Piper album if you would like to go check them out. Please note that those pictures were taken almost a week ago and she already looks different.

well I guess I better be ending this blog...it just doesn't want to end. Love to all!!!
