Hi all 🙂
Well things are moving right along. I’ve now hit week 20 with Cohen! Here I am….
I almost didn’t post the below pic bc I think I look funny, haha.
I’m feeling Cohen move quite a bit! Hubby still hasn’t felt him kick. I think he can feel where he is. I believe Cohen stops moving when he feels a hand! At our last ultrasound, he looked like he was trying to push the doctor away from taking his picture. haha.
Cohen should average about 10 inches long this week!
I’m finding that my ability to curl up on the couch, lean over to shave my legs, and so on, are slowly becoming increasingly difficult. I feel as though I have a super hard gut keeping me from doing so. I do, it’s a baby gut 🙂
If I wear a dress, with a pattern, people just stare at me and wonder. I think they just think I look puffy. Some people will ask shly if I’m expecting if I move a certain way and the dress clings. It usually happens when I wear the dress in this post (another prego mego post). I like wearing it though because it’s comfy and good with tights! However, in pants, things are quite evident.
I believe Elton (our pup) thinks we are changing his name to Cohen. I will be sitting with him at home..just he and I, and I will start talking to Cohen. As soon as I say “Cohen”, Elton immediately lifts his head and looks at me. I think he assumes I’m talking to him because he doesn’t see anyone else around.
I like coleslaw right now. It like it with a dressing that consists of sugar, vinegar and olive oil. YUM. These two things are also my best friends. I can’t get enough of them.
I haven’t noticed it after specific food but I’m getting a funny taste in my mouth. It makes me nervous about my breath and I’ve never had stinky breath. I have good teeth. Never any braces either. Not sure what the deal is. I might just need my teeth cleaned. Whatever the matter, I don’t like it.
Sleeping is just hard, period.
I think because of the sleeping issues and tossing and turning…I got an unfortunate heat rash. Luckily it’s clearing up. It was located on my belly and a few places above that :/
Hubby and I have been working on the nursery! I’m going to start ordering furniture soon. I have two of the three fabrics picked out and I’ve spoken to the lady making the bedding. We have the light fixture to pick out, paint color and several other things to do! I’d like to have it all complete to by the first of May so I can just hang out in there 🙂
Here is the furniture 🙂
I went with DaVinci furniture. The crib is the Anastasia style and the other pieces and they are the Roxanne. All pieces will be in Espresso. I really liked the sleigh style crib. As for the furniture, it didn’t seem too nursery like so I thought it would be good for Cohen to grow along with 🙂 I will order the crib, 4 drawer chest and bookshelf first. I will then decide, based on the room, if I want the 7 drawer chest as well. I’m going to get painters tape and tape out the measurements on the floor to see what I think. I think I do want the 7 drawer chest as well because I intend to make the 4 drawer chest a changing station while needed. My crib skirt will be floor length. YAY!
I have yet to pick a glider. That is another post coming soon!
Happy Baby Moments 🙂
Tonight, hubby and I watched One Tree Hill from last night, American Idol, and Conan’s last show. American Idol makes us laugh and laugh and laugh. We heart Conan!! He was so sincere on the show. It kind of gave me tears. Don’t tell hubby but he just said “man, that was hard to watch!” I’ll be curious to see what he does next!
I got great news yesterday that one of my besties will be in town some of Friday and some of Saturday. Can’t wait to see her!
We are supposed to have a snow/ice storm this Thursday! I’ll be curious to see how that turns out. I didn’t believe we would get what we got at Christmas and boy was I wrong!!
