29 weeks and a root canal

Last week was my birthday and my husband made a great effort to make it special. He got me some grey boots i've been wanting, a crib skirt that matches the baby bedding, and the documentary movie Babies that i've been wanting to see. Since my birthday was Tuesday and I'm usually too tired after work to go out, we decided to order in dinner and do my real birthday dinner at Tocanos on Saturday. Little did I know that on Thursday I would have to get a root canal. Needless to say, there was no Tocanos this weekend. I mostly sipped soup and drank smoothies. I was very worried about getting dental work done while I was 29 weeks pregnant but my dentist called my doctor to make sure all the medication he prescribed was ok. She said that it was but I've still been avoiding taking the vicodin and opted for extra strength tylenol instead. Oh the sacrifices us mommies make for our little ones :) Yes, it was a long weekend for me. But in happier news, we got the crib set up this weekend and the bedding has arrived. Now I need to order the mattress and I can get the crib/bedding all set up. My little guy has been moving around like crazy which feels much stranger than him kicking. He is starting to get in my ribs...not my favorite but I'm still happy every time I feel him. I also had a doctors appt. last week and everything looks good. No gestational diabetes and his heartbeat is good. We only have 10 weeks and 2 days left and even though I feel like that is forever away, I know it will go by fast. I just can't wait to be a mommy to this little guy!

27 Weeks!

Well I wish I could say that time is flying by but it's not. Now that i'm getting into the final stretch, I feel like each day is a week. I'm dying to meet my little man and Ethan is surprisingly as impatient as I am. We both want him here now but I know he needs to cook in there a bit longer. It's actually a good thing I have 3 months left (or so I keep telling myself) because I have not yet started on the nursery. I have basically everything I need but I'm waiting for my parents to come and bring me the dresser and take the queen bed out of the nursery. I also need to find out if I can paint. Does anyone know? Anyways some things that have developed in the last week:

- Painting my toe nails is extremely difficult and uncomfortable
- Bending over in general won't be happening for the next 3 months
- Heart burn, heart burn, heart burn
- Looking down at my belly and seeing it move as he kicks is awesome (though that's been happening for a long time now)
- Bulges on the right side of my belly and me and Ethan trying to figure out what body part of his the bulge belongs to
- Ethan talking to him gets him kicking like crazy! It's so cute!
- And finally, the realization that my belly button will not be an inny much longer. It's hanging on for dear life at the moment.

I have to admit I have had a very easy pregnancy so far. I'm a lucky duck. I'm just an impatient lucky duck. Oh well, he will be worth the wait. Here is a 27 week picture. It's hard to believe I've only gained 13 pounds when I feel so huge.
