Total Weight Gained: No weight gained yet
Maternity Clothes: My Mom (a.k.a. "Mamaw") and I together have purchased a few pieces of clothing so I have a good collection started. I also have several tops that aren't "maternity", but will work well when I get bigger.
Gender: We don't know yet, but will find out in early October - can't wait! It's fun to hear what everyone thinks it will be.
Name: We have our names picked out, but waiting to reveal his or her name once we find out.
Movement: No movement yet

What I Miss: Raw cookie dough, caffeine, feta cheese and fried eggs - I haven't missed these things TOO much, but every once in a while I wish I could have them.
Cravings: No cravings yet
How I'm Feeling: I am feeling really good! I've been a little more tired the past couple of weeks, but nothing other than that.
Best Moment this Week: We had our second appointment last Tuesday and everything still looks good. The heartbeat is still strong and my blood work checked out good. We go back to the doctor on September 12th to meet with the doctor and for more blood work. We also walked around Babies R Us after dinner the other night. We were overwhelmed with everything, but so fun and exciting too!
We also spent time converting my office into an office/guest room last week. (You can click here to see an old post with "before" pictures of my office.) Our current guest room will become the baby's room. We wanted to rearrange my office to make room for a bed for our guests to sleep in. We have a long list of projects to do around the house and a lot of them have to do with rearranging and redoing rooms and closets.
I started working on my office last week going through every drawer, shelf, box, cabinet, container, rolling cart, basket...you get the idea. I cleaned EVERYTHING out!! I threw a lot of stuff away and added several other things to the garage sale pile. It felt really good to sort through every.single.item in this office and get it reorganized! Our wrapping supplies have never looked so good - hah! After all of that, I enlisted my super sweet husband's help to move the furniture around for me. Below are a few "after" pictures. We really liked how it turned out. It's a comfortable place for a guest to sleep and watch tv plus I can still work in there as my office and access all of my craft supplies easily. It's a tight fit, but still easy to get around in. The pictures aren't as good as it looks it person, but it'll do. I also might do some rearranging of pictures and hang a few other things.
One project down!! Now I need to pack up a few things in the baby's room (old guest room) and sort through all of the stuff we put in there just to get it out of the way. We want to get that room as cleaned out as possible so we can paint it in early October!
I know "baby stuff" is all I have blogged about lately, but I do plan to blog about other things too in the coming weeks and months! I haven't had a whole lot of time for blogging lately, so I've just been doing my weekly posts. I plan to blog about all of our baby news, but also know that football is on it's way, the baseball playoffs are less than 2 months away, the holidays will be here before we know it and cooler weather is bound to come sometime!! Lots of good stuff going on and coming up...we are getting into my favorite time of year! I know there are a few pictures I haven't posted either - one day at a time though.
Until we meet again...
