Check-In: 26 Weeks

Pictures can be deceiving. Today marks 26 weeks, and even with horizontal stripes my bump looks like it shrunk back to first trimester size. Physically, baby and I had a fairly rough end to last week. I had weird pain that felt like my stomach was being electrocuted on Thursday. Friday night I had two handfuls of contractions while on a Target shopping date night with my husband. However, starting Saturday I felt kind of normal again.

Origami Owl, living charm necklace, necklace, jewelryA few weeks ago I went to an Origami Owl party at a friends house. I had a great time, and walked away with this cute necklace. The charms on the inside are three birthstones for the kids (Lyla, Jazz, and Atticus) and a diamond ring for me and Nate. A little something for the whole family!


Check-In: 20 weeks


I hit the official half way mark today of my pregnancy. Currently, I’m off work for almost a month. I’m a dance teacher and I love my job! Without going to work I’m doing a lot of extra house work. I deep cleaned and reorganized my bathroom/laundry room and my sunroom. Thursday, I decided to start the process of switching the playroom back to a nursery for Atticus. Jazz has been using the crib/toddler bed, but I moved that out of the kids’ room. I brought over the twin mattress to lay on the floor for Jazz, and reassembled the crib. I still have a lot of work to do before the transformation is complete. I need to figure out the whole toy storage situation. What toys will move into the sunroom, the kids’ room, and what will move into the sunroom. Wish me luck!
