We have actually been slacking on getting ready for Corbin to be here. I realized that we have a limited number of weekends free and we have a ton of stuff to do. I figured I'd steal an idea from Dana at Destined to be Domestic (and a Mommy too!) and make a list that I can cross off as needed. I am sure I will add to this list, just as often as I take things off. I'll put it at the end of this post. :-)
Other than that, we've been doing great! I keep testing dehydrated, and have had to up my water intake from 64 oz to 96 oz. It's tough! I am not a fan of water, plus I am not a big drinker. I maybe have one glass of drink when I eat. I feel like I am drinking all day, and then peeing all night. Seriously, how is it helping my dehydration if it is all peed out?
How far along are you?: 26w, 1 day
How big is baby?: He's about 2lbs now I think
Weight gain/loss?: I have only gained 6 lbs total. I'm pretty happy
Stretch marks?: Ugh, yes!! I invested in coco butter. I know it won't stop them, but if it helps make them lighter, then I'm all for it. I couldn't bring myself to spend $40 on mederma
Maternity clothes?: Definately. I have one shirt that is a maternity shirt that tends to ride up. Wonderful
Sleep?: I love it. I would sleep all day if I could. Whoever said you get an energy boost in 2nd tri is a low down dirty liar.
Best moment this week?: Working on his wall letters for his name and they actuallycoming out pretty good! I have to redo the "C" so hopefully I'll have a pic up next post.
Food cravings?: Steak and potatos. I've been wanting sweets lately too
Gender?: Boy :)
Movement?: Yes, it's fun watching my tummy bounce when he really gets kicking.
Belly button?: Still an innie, but shallower
Labor signs?: Not lately. I had some really bad pains after being delayed in Dallas for 5 hours, the Dr. thinks it may have been contractions, thus upping my water.
What do I miss?: Not feeling tired all the time!
What I'm looking forward to this week? FINALLY getting our bedding in! It's been a long 8 weeks :)
And now my list:
Get Bedding (waiting for it to come in the mail)
Get Wall Art
Organize his clothes
Figure out the closet
Order more Cloth Diapers (prefolds from ebay, BG 4.0)
Finish up birthing classes (5 weeks left!)
Have baby showers
Buy leftover neccessities
Finish painting guest room
Try to paint the bathroom
Paint kitchen wall that was fixed
Paint kitchen and living room ceilings that were fixed
Find something for guests to sleep on
Try to paint our bedroom
Get house clean
And that's all I can think of for now :)
