a papaya

How far along: twenty two+ weeks
How big is baby: around 20.8 ounces
Total weight gain: not available.
Maternity clothes: yes! i was so excited when i scored two, TWO, dresses at goodwill last night that will be maternity and cross over for after!
Sleep: good...i think. interrupted, but i feel pretty rested.
Best moment this week: getting started on baby boy's "world traveler" room
Gender: boy! boy! boy!
Craving: cotton candy, and i indulged at the coast this last week!
Movement: lots and i love it
Labor Signs: none, thankfully! this baby has a while to bake still.
Belly Button in or out: out, very out.
Stretch marks: hate them with a passion.
What I miss: being able to shave my own bikini line.
What I am looking forward to: our baby-q in september!
Milestones: i think we are closer to a name!

it is getting harder and harder to bend over and help toddlers into their little summer shorts but i am not complaining - this pregnancy is flying by and that is one thing this impatient mama appreciates, ha! we had our first home birth/ midwife appointment last week and i am super excited to work with this team - even though my nerves are bubbling up again :( they gave me some new tips to fight the acid reflux and heartburn that are already helping a lot!

i started on his nursery this week - ordering a few things here and there and a we made a quick stop in portland to pick up some furniture pieces tax free! we are going with a sort of vintage world traveler theme and i ordered a HUGE world map that will be the center piece of it all. after a quick Facebook poll i agree that we can totally survive without a real changing table - his room is upstairs anyway and i can't imagine i will sprint up the stairs every diaper change, the ottoman and a nice travel pad will do just fine!

speaking of diapers...i ordered a huge new stash this week too! we sold off almost our whole pocket stash we used with stella and traded in for refolds, covers and woolies. of course i ordered a handful of bum genius aio for those moments when i don't want to deal with folding and will be great for night!

i say this every time but i can't believe we are here at, well now, almost twenty three weeks! this baby could potentially be here in fourteen weeks and that is crazy talk. any bets on a due date? my estimated one is one day after me and tim's birthday, on november 8th. i guess we shall see!

ps, no official name yet - this has been a real struggle for us but i think we are almost there!
i swear to god i own more shirts then this! i just have bad timing on always wearing them when i remember to snap a weekly photo, ha!

Oh my goodness, you are making me feel very bad and disorganised. I'm nearly 30 weeks pregnant with number 2 and have only just really realised that I am actually having a baby, and that I do actually need to start organising myself and getting things ready. So well done you for working on the nursery already, the theme sounds awesome. Can't wait to hear what you're going to call the little guy. Will you reveal it on here? Or make us wait til he's born? X

Too cute. I haven't put on the shirt lately because now I'm at the point of not wanting to stretch it out so I can keep wearing it after she is born :)

I love the nursery theme- sounds like it will be so cute. I am 32 weeks and we still have yet to finalize a name.
