"It's The Fiiinal Coooouuntdooooooooown"

To the 80% of you reading this who will now have that song stuck in their head for the next 3 hours, "You're welcome".

So today is my last official day of the 2nd trimester. Yup, I am on the last day of my 27th week. Tomorrow I begin day 1 of week 28 - day 1 of month #8 - day 1 of the 3rd Trimester. The past 7 months have absolutely flown by. I don't feel like I've been pregnant that long! I attribute it to how easy my pregnancy's been. I've had to go in to L&D once for a dilated right kidney, had a 3 day long migraine, and I've had 2 days of round-lig pain that was severe enough to restrict me to the couch but THAT'S IT. In 7 months, I've been knocked out of commission for a grand total of about 87 hours. That's less than 4 days. Of course, I've probably just jinxed myself and will spend the next 2 weeks on the couch with a combo of whatever pregnancy related pain is waiting in the wings but to close out 2 trimesters of pregnancy with only 4 days of rotteness? Heck yeah! I've truly been blessed and I pray that God continues to walk me through the final 3 months on the same bunny trail He's led me down so far.

Up next for me and the tot:
~Doc appt on Monday morning that includes needles and bloodwork and a sugary concoction that I will choke down at 9 a.m. to see if I'm on the road to Gestational Diabetes (not worried).
~Baby shower at Diane's on Nov 7th. I'll be at it sans the Mister bc the Army has other plans for him that week. His birthday also falls that week so it will be the 4th one out of the 6 he's had in the Army that we will be apart for. I'm going to head to AR on the 2nd or 3rd and hang out there til the following Monday. I don't know if I'll make it up to the NW corner or not so if you are going to be in the LR area that week or weekend, let me know!
~Final ultrasound at 4dPeek! This one will give us a glimpse into what Andrew will look like when he arrives bc his face will be pretty filled out and he'll have put on some weight. I'll get some really cool pictures out of it, too. I need to schedule that.
~Turkey Day! My side of the family is coming up to spend the holiday with us. I'll get to see my brother for the first time since......umm.....when did I see him last? October of 2007? Maybe it was Christmas 2007. WOW. I didn't realize it had been that long.

The Nursery

IT'S DONE, IT'S DONE, IT'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I did it all by myself with the exception of putting the crib and changing table together (Sam helped me do that but not the dresser, that was all me) so be kind if you hate it. I designed it and painted it all on my own - even painted the things on the shelves since I couldn't find any frames or blocks in the right colors. Every detail of the room has been thought out and created to match if I could not find what I wanted in a store. For those of you who have been in my house before, that's the sage green recliner we've had for a few years, I just slipcovered it so it would match. So anyway, here it is!

The only picture I have from "before" is of the color scheme Gran and I first painted the guest room. Before:

And here's a 360 degree tour of the room with some close-ups in "after" mode (and if you want to see it even larger, just click on a picture):

Kitty has already decided the changing mat is really just her new bed. That'll change REAL quick once Tot poops on it.

I love it! Like walk in the room and see it all and squeal and clap my hands, love it.

I still have some little things to do (like stick the Diaper Genie in the corner next to the changing table - didn't want it in the picture - and I still have to put pictures in the frames) and the closet is pretty bare (he's not going to be here for 3ish more months, Lord willing) and I'm sure I'll tweak it here and there, but YAY!
