31 weeks- WHAT!?!

I seriously cannot believe I only have 9 weeks until my due date. Time has flown by. On Monday I had to go in for the 3 hour glucose tolerance test. My regular appt was scheduled for today, but I figured since I was there for 3 hours I would see if I could get my appt then. They squeezed me in luckily.  Baby's heart rate is still good, as well as everything else.  I've gained 29 lbs so far... I think I'll be over the recommended 25-35 lbs.  With Marley I gained 37 total.  Here's my belly.

Yah I took this myself which is why I have no head. Oh well. I'm sure I'm not "glowing" anymore anyways. 

95% done

We are so close to being done with moving Marley upstairs, us downstairs, and creating a little office upstairs too.  Marley's room just needs trim around the bottom, door and window. Our room just needs clothes put away, and the baby stuff set up.  The office still needs all it's drywall done, flooring done, and some major organization.  So far Marley seems to really like her room. She has almost all of her toys up there (which I love!)  Her bed is a reversible loft bed. When she was downstairs she slept on the bottom. We switched up when we moved her upstairs. She freaked out at bed time as asked us to flip it back over. We did and she was fine after that.  The next day she asked us to flip it back over so she's on top again... We did, and so far so good. Here's the picture timeline of the whole progress.

Marley's old room downstairs- AAHH It's a mess! 

Bye bye pink paint...

Priming upstairs. 

New paint. Marley said she wanted blue. Mike picked this out. She said she didn't like it, it's not blue it's green were her exact words. 

CARPET! I have this weird pregnancy thing where I LOVE to vacuum. I'm not going to lie, I've vacuumed her room 4 times already...

It's done! 

Our room downstairs. 

Our headboard is about 3 inches too long for that wall so it extends into the closet. Baby Corn's crib will also be in this closet (not the one with the door haha)

So there it is. It took us about 8 days so far. Like I said all that's left is little touch up stuff.  I love not having toys in the living room and I think Marley loves having her own little space upstairs.

Movin' on up...

Remember this post here about us moving Marley's room upstairs? Well we've finally started working on that. However, things changed a little.

See in this picture the room in the top left corner? That was originally going to be the nursery. We've since decided to make that Marley's room, and have the baby downstairs with us for at least the first month or so.

Mike's been working for only about 2 days and he's made some great progress so far. All the "fun" stuff is done, and now it's time to mud and sand all the drywall. That is definitely not fun, and it's very messy.

Here's our progress so far...

This is the upstairs from the stop of the stairs looking into the room. This was taken the day we bought our house. 

Now it looks like this! The hallway on the right leads to the bathroom. The jut out on the left is the closet in the room. 
Here's the view looking back from inside her room. Closet on the right. Not sure what kind of door we're going to get on there. It's about 3 feet smaller than her room now, but for some reason it seems bigger.  
She decided she wants her room painted brown. A few days before she decided on brown she said she wanted blue, so we'll see what we finally end up with. We should have it all done in a few weeks. Just need to finish all the drywall up, paint, carpet, put up trim and then switch all her stuff up here and the rest of our stuff down stairs (most of our stuff is out of this room, either on the other side of the wall or in our dining room).  We'll also have to paint downstairs since her current room is pink and I don't think Mike likes the idea of having a pink bedroom.  We also put in a new window up here and a new fan (it's so cute) I have pictures on my other camera of it so I'll share that in the next update (which will hopefully be once we're finished!)

30 weeks

Since we started doing house work I have been slacking on the belly pictures and time has been flying by. At the most I only have 12 weeks left- that's crazy!!  I now have to go to the dr. every two weeks until the last month then it's every week. I have gained 24 lbs so far which is right on track.  Everything is still good. I have a lot of rib pain but it's just from constant kicking- little brat!
