Still pregnant over here. Still no contractions of any kind at all. I’m starting to wonder if maybe I had some and didn’t even know. Who knows… Those of you who have had real contractions are probably laughing at me right now.
I haven’t done a whole lot today because I woke up still feeling sick. This illness needs to go away. I kind of think it’s my body’s way of forcing me to rest prior to labor. Maybe tomorrow I’ll wake up feeling better and in labor! Hopefully.
I went around the house a few minutes ago taking some pictures of some of the things we’ve acquired for the house recently.
We bought these two GIANT bookshelves from Craigslist and put them in the living room. They’re huge. Like 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide each. We bought the blue cloth bins from Target for the bottom two shelves of each. The books are color coordinated, yes.
And another shot. Aaron has his record player and records on the left bookcase. The baby bouncy seat and swing are currently just sitting in the living room. I’m not sure where they’ll eventually end up.
Aaron put the little glass knobs on the two side tables I spray painted and now they’re in the living room. They’re sprayed grey though it looks a little blue in the picture.
The pack n’ play is all set up in our bedroom.There is a “newborn napper” on top (left side in the picture) but he might just sleep in the actual pack n’ play. We’ll see what he likes.
The nursery is completely finished now (except for bookshelves that I haven’t bought/ Aaron hasn’t made yet). We bought the recliner from Craigslist. It was brand new. I guess the girl’s grandmother bought it for her and she didn’t like so she sold it. It’s a Lazy Boy and really comfortable. We went with this instead of a glider mainly because the nursery is too small to have a separate footstool. Plus we have a glider in the living room right now. We’ll recline in the nursery and glide in the living room.
Aaron had the lamp which I think his mom bought at a thrift store a long time ago. It was gold and marble and then I spray painted it navy blue. The lamp shade is from Target. The nightstand is from Ikea and it was in our bedroom before we moved it in here. I’m on the look out for two new matching nightstands for our bedroom now.
The blue and white rug is from Overstock. The two picture frames in the background are from Ikea and I made the prints in Powerpoint.
The dresser is also from Craigslist. It was off white and we wanted white so I spray painted it plain white and sprayed the knobs navy. The blind is from JC Penney. The little bird house is a decoration from my baby shower and the blue frame (with no picture yet) is from a yard sale.
The crib was a gift from my grandparents. I ordered it from Babies R’ Us. I LOVE it, however the first crib that was delivered had a broken part so they sent us a replacement part that was also broken. The pointy tip of a screw was sticking right out of the top of it. So the third replacement part was good but still, come on, that’s ridiculous. Not sure how I feel about Delta.
Another picture of the chair.
And we got this little ship wheel, barometer at an estate sale for $3.
That about wraps up the nursery. It may not look like a tiny room but it is TINY. I think it’s 8×10 so we fit just about as much stuff as we possibly could in there. We’re happy with it though. It might not ever work for a regular bedroom but it works well for the nursery so far.
