I wish I could come up with some witty blog post or have something inspired to write...but alas I don't. To be honest things have been pretty boring lately in my life. I've felt stressed out about stuff for the last month and things are FINALLY starting to calm down. I'm getting a much needed and well deserved day off tomorrow, so I've just been relaxing this weekend and catching up on my rest. Being stressed is bad enough...but being pregnant and stressed is just down right tiring lol.

I think tomorrow I'm going to go shopping for Christmas decorations for the house with my sister and try to get the house in Christmas condition. Only a couple more weeks until I host a Christmas party and I want this place to look festive! I then plan to spend the afternoon watching Beauty and the Beast (because I'm cool like that) and then going to see Breaking Dawn with my mom.

Well I'm off to watch some never before heard of B list movie on TMN on Demand...until next time!

Pregnancy and my Ever Changing Body

In the last week I've really noticed how much bigger my belly has gotten. It's not "huge" per say...but it is a lot bigger then what I'm used to. Along with my ever growing belly...other parts of me have grown as well. My hair is growing like a weed..which I don't mind at all, it has also gotten a lot shinier and softer over the last couple of weeks, which is a nice plus too. I've come to the realization this week that I may just have to buy a new bra as well...something which I was pretty sure I could avoid. When I first got pregnant I was all excited about that area starting to naturally I am pretty small chested. I had a couple of bras that I had bought or had been given to me that were slightly too big pre-pregnancy that not fit post-pregnancy. Sadly..those bras are also getting too small. I've been avoiding buying a lot of things clothing related for as long as possible...the only things I've really bought are pants, as my old pants fit just right and any additional weight gain made them really uncomfortable. This pay day I think I will hit up LaSenza and pick out a new bra and have myself measured to find out what size I even am anymore...and then I am going to head to Urban Planet and pick up some slightly larger sweaters for the winter. I'm not quite big enough yet that buying regular shirts/sweaters in larger sizes doesn't to save money I figure I will just go buy some cheaper sweaters in larger sizes and save myself some money...sweaters at UP are like 2 for $25 whereas sweaters at Thyme are $59 each....such a rip off!

I'll post a pic of the belly soon...I just generally try to avoid cameras..pregnant or not.

Fun, Fun, Fun!

Not a whole lot has gone on in the last week...

I've really felt Baby B kicking a lot this week. He seems to like the music I play on my drive home from work each night. I tend to listen to it quite loudly and as soon as I get in and turn the car on, the kicking starts and doesn't stop until I get home. He also kicks quite a bit if I'm hungry and haven't eaten yet and sometimes when Daddy talks to him. It's a crazy feeling now that I can tell the difference between a kick and a gas bubble lol.

This week the stuff that my mom ordered for us came in. I put together the stroller and car seat yesterday and was going to move onto the playard and high chair and then decided that I wasn't ready for the house to be baby ready yet. It may sound silly, but I want to enjoy my grown up only house for just a little longer. So far everything we've received has been stored in the baby's room upstairs...and nothing much has been done with the room yet. I finally picked out the bedding that I want and have started to design the baby room in my it's just to start the process. DH is going to paint the room once I pick out the colours and then I will start the design process. For now I am going to focus on getting the house decorated for Christmas though. Since it is our first Christmas in the house there is lots that I want to do. We bought a Christmas table centre piece today and a small decoration for the fireplace...and I want to talk to my mom about making me a wreath for the doors since she's really good at them. We will be hosting a Christmas party at the house next month and I'm super excited to get things prepped!! Maybe I'll even have some of the baby room done by then...who knows!?

Anyways...I hope you are all doing well!!

Until next time...
