Nursery Preparation

So I am home sick today because I am so over tired and feel plain crumby.  I think I am getting sick and some of the students at school are starting to drop like flies.  I will be going for nap shortly so hopefully with some extra rest I can fight off whatever is trying to get me.

I have not started my nursery at all, but hopefully I will be able to start on it soon.  We are waiting on a friend getting their stuff out our basement, and then with my MIL's help, the nursery will soon start to take shape.

We have chosen the colour we want for the room.  It is called Pacific Pines and is a light green.  I found it on the website, but the colours look grey instead of green.  I attached a green that is showing up closer what the paint chip looks like.  I will accent either with a darker green or a beige.

There is also currently bright pink carpeting in that room and if the budget can afford it, we would like to switch it out to laminate flooring.  I am so excited about getting started on the nursery.  We are planning on sticking to plain white furniture or natural wood.  My rocking chair is natural wood and I would like that to be in the nursery.

It still feels so surreal that I am pregnant.  I have been feeling Baby Spud for a few weeks now and the movements are getting to be more frequent.  When I was leaving work yesterday I was getting lots of kicks, and the Chief got to feel it quite clearly.    It is crazy to feel the movements inside of me.  I can't wait to finally see the little one.  :)

My belly seems to be really growing as well.  I was wearing a really loose sweatshirt last night to drop off my supply work, and although it was loose still, my bump was quite visible underneath it.   It is amazing, and I am so thankful that it means my little one is growing away.

Exactly 1/2 through my PG

I am 20 weeks today and have 20 weeks left.  It is amazing to me that I have a little life growing inside of me.  I am so thankful and can't wait for a little baby to get here.

The Chief is convinced it is a girl, and I think I am having boy, so in about 20 weeks we shall find out.

I had my anatomy scan on Wednesday.  Baby Spud is growing along.  Here is my picture from that ultrasound.

Also here is a picture of my growing belly.
