Then, a series of unfortunate events happened, including me getting a bit behind on a freelance project, our bed breaking and then breaking again, the second time when I was sitting on it (scary!), some fraudulent charges on our main credit card, and some more work-related sticky-ickiness that I don't need to elaborate on here. Not to mention me feeling like our house is falling apart because I cannot keep up with the housework in my very very pregnant and exhaustion-prone state. And did I mention we're sleeping in our guest room, which has a double bed? Not exactly my idea of a restful, third-trimester night's sleep. (In fact, the Dude has a pallet on the floor in case I need to kick him out of bed in the middle of the night, heh.)
But my amazing sister-in-law came to the rescue with a pre-natal massage gift certificate, which I cashed in last week, and it completely rejuvenated me. So we're back to being productive and trucking through our list of to-dos before Bean gets here. Up next on the list is to finish painting Bean's dresser, assemble the Pack and Play, which Bean will be sleeping on the first couple of months in our bedroom (after we take care of the broken-bed situation, obviously), and pack our hospital bag(s). Oh, did I mention that TSA broke our one and only suitcase when the Dude was on vacation last month? So in addition to all the new baby stuff and bed stuff we've been having to buy, we can add a new suitcase to our list!
Since I haven't shared a photo since week 28 (wow!), here I am the week before last at 31 weeks. I'm starting to feel HUGE. I've gained around 20 pounds total at this point.
Guesses are starting to come in as to what sex Bean is. I can be honest and say that I have no idea. But the majority of people keep telling me it's a boy. OK, don't know what makes you say that, but whatever!
I don't want to share full on nursery shots quite yet, because I want to get a couple more things ready first, but here's a sneak peek:
Oh, and we started our childbirth classes this past weekend. It's all starting to feel more real!
