30 weeks 2/23/10

so i thought i'd first send some love from Bella and ROOMBA...poor guy hasn't gotten any press on here- so i recently got an action shot of him doing what he does best...vacuum the floors...unassisted! HAHA
i'm 30 weeks today and still feeling great! starting to have some uncomfort sleeping and trying to find positions to sleep in....AND this lil man just won't stop kicking!!! he's seriously moving all day--maybe an hour or two of rest... i think we're going to have our hands full!!
i have recovered from whatever i had last week...ps did i mention how HORRIBLE it was? omgosh Dave almost took me to the hospital to get an IV b/c i just couldn't keep anything down...even the phenergan (that's when you know its bad!) so thankfully i recovered from that! we had a big accounting midterm this monday and we both keep asking ourselves why were doing school and baby and work and life...ahhh sometimes it just gets so overwhelming, but i know in the end it will be worth it :) and hopefully by the time this lil guy is running around we'll be done!! woowhoo i'm going to the midwife now every 2 weeks, since we're nearing the end...and once i hit i think 36 weeks we go every week...omgosh, i just can't believe in 10ish weeks we will have him in our arms!!!
thanks to everyone who sent gifts! we have a few pics below of our first few we got in the mail...and can i tell you it MAKES MY WHOLE week to get things in the mail :) we were sooo excited...thank you all!
my shower in ohio is this weekend, so hopefully next week i'll get new pics up :)
we got the dresser in the mail...here's Dave putting it together :)
AND...our FIRST mail gift!!! thanks Cheryl, Bruce and Nick!! its the most adorable swing... it looks like a lamb!! i've hear this is the best one and works wonders, so we'll see how it works out :)

oh yeah...and i put this together!! woowhoo
Bella was sooo interested and kept sniffing the toys on it

close up of the lamb

im so lucky to have such a handyman for a hubby :)

soo...okay, i admit it, i'm like my mom and yes, i'm already starting to pack our hospital bag! haha i got all kinds of fun lil stuff at wal-mart to take to the birth center- we get a whole suite with walk in showers, etc so i figured we should take advantage of it and bring everything we need :)
and a new lil "under the sea" lamp that is on the table- it lights up and spins around and makes the room look like fish all over--thanks Karen!

29 weeks!

out to dinner downtown Charleston with Chelsea and Alicia
IT SNOWED huge flakes in charleston!!! Bella was sooo excited and confused at the same time! haha look how huge they were!
