Welcome to my Blog!

I am new to blogging but have been blog-stalking others for so long that I decided to make my own. Hopefully some other new mommies and preggo's can share advice and comments of their experiences with me as I go through this journey! I will share as candidly as possibly the up's and down's, excitement, worries, funnies, and anything else that happens during my pregnancy. I will also backtrack some and cover some of the highlights that have already happened- since I am now in the 6th month of my pregnancy, better late than never though!
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and please bear with me as I am still learning how to use this site.

No one told me that nesting hurts!

So, I have had the urge for several days now. everything in this apartment is bothering me and it just didn't seem like it would be clean enough for me to bring a baby into in just a few weeks. Plus, the clutter is really getting to me and I don't know when I'll have the time to get to everything with an infant around. So it is time to simplify, organize, disinfect, clean, and throw a bunch of stuff away! Also, it is time to complete all the things I want to before it is home to my precious baby girl!
Yes, I am totally nesting...
and it HURTS!
My back and hips are killing me and stiff and I can hardly walk or even move. This is gonna take a few days and it's stressing me out because I just want it done to help me feel a little more ready for baby!
I invited friends over to dinner on Friday hoping it pushes me a little harder to get things done this week knowing I want a super clean home when company is coming.

35 Weeks... I can't believe she will be here in about a month!

How far along? 35 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: I am so not telling!
The bright side is- I weigh less now than I did this time 2 years ago and everyone is telling me I don't look like I have gained weight anywhere but the belly! (I wonder if they are just being nice?)

Maternity Clothes? Oh Yeah! And Guess what... I won a contest on one of my favorite blogs! I am waiting on this cute set of maternity clothes and hope it arrives soon! Thanks Mommy Brain Jen! (p.s.- if you haven't read her blog, you really should! I love it and she's great!)

Stretch Marks? OK, so I discovered three on my belly this morning- I was soo excited thinking maybe.. just maybe... I would be one of the lucky few who didn't get any on my belly... welll no such luck for this girl!

Sleep? Other than waking up every 30 minutes to pee or to roll over because my hip hurts I have been sleeping pretty soundly :)

Best Moment This Week: She dropped! No more rib pain... and let me tell you- this past month it has been BAD!

Movement: Oh yes... She really doesn't stop moving. I can push her around in there too. Her new favorite position is right in front pushing out so I can feel her little back and booty all the time!

Food Cravings: Mexican Food

Gender: Girl!

Labor Signs: nope

Belly Button - In or Out? flat mostly, if I just ate it's out

What I miss: Being able to bend over! Being able to get up off the couch without Donny's help!

What I am looking forward to: My baby shower next Saturday!

Weekly Wisdom: for the men- Do not, I repeat, DO NOT tickle your pregnant lady while she is sitting on your lap (especially if she warns you)... unless of course you don't mind getting peed on!

Milestones: Finished baby registry this week, baby dropped yesterday and I feel significantly more comfortable!

Hi, My Name is Katie and I am a Horrible Blogger!

Ok, So I know I haven't posted on here in two months and I really didn't keep up with this as well as I hoped. But... I have made a resolution (to myself?) to be a better blogger- mostly because I would like to document my little girl's life from day one (which is coming up VERY soon!) and I think this will be the best way to do it so that family and friends can keep up too!
So on that note... I am not making any huge promises regarding the frequency of my posting, however I will TRY MY HARDEST to blog at least once per week!

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that 2010 brings wonderful things to everyone!
