28 Weeks - The Beginning of the End

Today marks the 28th week of this pregnancy and the beginning of the third trimester. I wish I could say it feels like it's gone by really fast but it feels like I have been pregnant forever! Considering the short amount of time between delivering Izabel and getting pregnant with Tanner I have been pregnant for 13 out of the last 24 months and I still have a little more than 2 months to go. The countdown now is 10 more weeks since we will schedule a c-section. This pregnancy has been much more difficult than Izabel was but at least Tanner is healthy and so far everything has gone smoothly. I am very thankful for that.
Izabel defintely doesn't understand that a new baby is coming but she knows that Tanner is in my tummy and she'll run up and wave to my stomach or give me kisses. She gets to excited when we talk about him. Hopefully some of that excitement will transfer to the actual baby when he is taking up lots of mommies time with feedings!
For now I am trying to stay focused on work. It is a very busy time of year for me and I have a lot of things to accomplish before maternity leave starts (April 2nd!) We also still have a lot to do here to get ready for Tanner's arrival so these last 10 weeks should go by pretty quickly! They'd go by even faster if I could manage to get some sleep!!! I guess I'll hope for that again one day!

A Little Progress!

We pretty much spent most of this weekend at home. On Friday night Noah went with his Aunt and Laurie to the hockey game and then over to his friend Ryan's house to hang out while Izabel and I went to bed early!
Saturday morning Noah managed to get up with Izabel so I got to sleep in a little and then his Aunt Ann came over to help him move furniture and paint Tanner's room! This was news to me and I already had plans to see a movie with Courtney. I was going to cancel my plans but they told me to go. Courtney and I saw Bride Wars and it was really cute. We decided to start going to chick flicks together every other weekend just to get out of the house and enjoy some girl time!

Finally getting some work done!

When I came home Tanner's room was painted and I was excited. We started talking about possibly laying wall-to-wall carpet in both bedrooms. Right now they are laminate floors which is pretty but cold and not so fun to play on. Since we are trying to make Izabel's room more like a playroom it makes more sense to have carpet. We went and got some samples from Lowes but then we ran into the question of whether or not we can lay carpet over laminate. Anyone know? I keep getting conflicting responses!
Noah got us subs for dinner and we watched Righteous Kill after Izabel went to bed. Sunday morning I got up with Izabel (of course she woke up early for me!) Noah's Aunt came over again as we were going to go out looking for carpet and do some comparison pricing. The problem with the laminate came up again so right now we don't know what we are going to do! When we got home they put the border up in Tanner's room and it came out so cute! I'm so excited to have that part done and I can't wait to get the furniture in there and start decorating! Then we got ready for bed and a new work week! Hope everyone is doing well!
