The snow's been coming down all day today. Because it's winter and I work from home, I've been spending plenty of time inside our condo. But now that I'm feeling better, I can eat like I normally would, I've ventured out to a few yoga classes, and I'm getting items checked off my "prep for baby" list.
The new rug for the nursery arrived last week—we're going with a navy, turquoise, and white theme. Our second bedroom is about 8x14 feet and used to contain a twin bed, my jewelry armoire, my desk, a dresser and the printer. We've had to think about what's staying and what's going.
In my excitement to see the rug in its new home, I folded up the bedding and dragged the twin mattress, box spring, and jewelry armoire out of the room. Scott and I rolled out the 6x9 rug once he got home from work and then used our new vacuum on it. Next up: cleaning out the desk and moving it out. I usually work from the dining room table or couch, and the extra space will be much-needed once the baby gear arrives.
I got Scott tickets to a Blackhawks game for his birthday, so we went on Friday night. So exciting to watch them play live, especially with the current streak! We grabbed a quick dinner at Elephant & Castle before, and I got fish and chips, something I definitely wouldn't have been able to eat a couple of weeks ago.
On Saturday, we cooked fajitas for dinner (chicken is finally sounding okay again!) and watched Argo (so good!). I've been trying to eat healthier without going crazy about it, meaning more fruits and veggies, yogurt, cereal, and other yummy food. Don't worry though—cookies, mac and cheese, and pizza are still making an appearance on my plate.
Yesterday's doctor's appointment went well. Everything is on track so far. It's so funny how hearing the heartbeat was almost surprising. I know there's a baby growing in there, but it's still hard to believe sometimes! I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow... wow.
