We found out he was a boy at 20 weeks in mid-December.  Look at that little profile and that round belly! He was breech at the time and everything looked perfect.26 weeksAt 21 weeks I visited Wisconsin again and had a great family Xmas at my aunt’s (my first since we moved to Texas 6 years ago)..and it was freezing.IMG_9988Still just wearing baggy clothes because I feel big but not hugely pregnant yet..
IMG_9986And almost through the second trimester! Time is really flying by now whereas for the first 5 months it seemed so slow.  I think once I started feeling him kick and move every day (at 20 weeks on the day) makes it feel like he’s really real and this is happening.  Really starting to see the baby bump for what it is now..25weekbumpIMG_0031(Above: 26 weeks) We got another ultrasound at 26 weeks because the first one we got was not at a medically licensed facility (a pregnancy spa) so we didn’t get the full medical report, even though the sonographer did show us that everything was developing and looked great. We chose to get another just to be sure things were still going well and to get the medical report to our midwife.

Look how much bigger he is already! according to the machines measurements Baby R is growing perfectly and is at about 2 pounds, his femur bone is almost 5 cm long and his head is about 24 cm around.  He was taking a few swallows of fluid in this picture and stretched for us a bit.  A few times he elbowed me on screen and I could feel it too.  I’m so super attached to this  little guy and can’t quite believe we’ll meet him in 13 weeks!

My nursery ideas


I did a ton of looking on interest and Project nursery once I found out we were pregnant for nursery ideas.  I would describe my taste as funky, bright, colorful, vintage, modern and eclectic.  The extra room we are using for him is pretty small, about 12×12 but it’s got a bright window and it’s a blank slate, down to the builder’s beige-white walls I haven’t touched in the 5 years we’ve lived here.

I love a bright white room with the white crib and the added color in accessories and toys.. 

Love this color combo..

like this mint and orange, black/grey and white room..

I adore this cloud wall..what if I painted them in gold or black  on a neutral wall?

as well as this polka dot wall..I could paint them in minty aqua or clementine orange..

I also luv the light aqua stripes here..maybe in gray on one wall..

So far we have the crib, Jenny lind in white as in the above pic, change table, and white painted hutch, and crib sheets/bumper/skirt in white/grey chevron and polka dots, super cute, and a closet storage cube.  My dad saved the wooden rocking chair from my childhood and plans to bring it down.  The room will probably have a vintage/modern feel and I love that mix.  I’m trying to use/reuse what’s already in our home and DIY what I can.  I have about 16 more weeks and I’d love to have the room done well in advance of baby R’s arrival so I’ll try to keep this updated as an ongoing (fun!) project for now.
