Nursery theme

In addition to the rug you can see down below, I wanted to post a few more pictures of some of the fabric we are using in the nursery for your viewing pleasure. The 2 main ones are unavaible anywhere so I can't get a picture of them, but they are each a seashell print, one on pink, one on teal.
The seashell prints belong to the same collection (called "Seaside Rose") as these first two below which we are using also (the teal is slightly greener in real life).
The third one is also going to be part of the bedding.
The fourth one my sister-in-law Stacey also happened to find (after my mom & I had already bought it to use in the bedding), and she made me an awesome "Mei-Tai" baby carrier out of it.
I'm also hoping to find a pretty hawaiian print fabric with pink and teal in it to recover an old chair that I have in that room.

Week 28

David and I took our "condensed childbirth" class last week which was an all day affair. It was good- we learned a lot of details about the labor/delivery process, I got to have David practice massaging my back, we learned some breathing techniques and we watched a few videos that I could have done without. I see the nurse practitioner/midwife this week (my doctor is on maternity leave) and then after that I will start going to the doctor every 2 weeks! Crazy! It's going so fast!

Hi! Well I had my glucose test this week, and everything came back normal except that I have low iron so I have to start taking iron supplements along with Vitamin C (must help with absorption?). I bought a body pillow yesterday so I'm hoping it will aid my sleep comfort level. We have our childbirth class this Saturday as long as the teacher doesn't get sick again, we've already had it cancelled once!

This picture is of me just past 26 weeks. Notice the cute maternity dress that I got at Target for only 6 bucks! What a deal!

On a side note, David has been traveling this week in Orlando for work and as he left the airport today he saw an abundance of cheerleaders which made me remember that last weekend was the weekend I was always there for Nationals!
