Baby Bound - Week 29


Nursery Progress: The furniture arrived this week and the nursery is starting to look like a nursery.  The bedding and curtains should be here next week!  AND, I finished the mobile!  I'm so excited how it turned out!

How are you feeling?  So tired this week!  I can’t keep my eyes open, and if I’m not in bed by 8:30 then I’m passed out on the couch.   She must be having a growth spurt.

Stretch marks?  Pffffff

Best moment of the week?  As I stated above, the nursery furniture arrived this week and OH. My. GOSH!  It looks SO good!  It’s a tad larger than I had expected but it still works in the room really well!  (I’m not a measurer.  I rely on my eye and most of the time it works out okay.   Pictures to come later).  We will have to find a new home in the house for the wagon but we need a toy box for downstairs too, right?  I don’t know if its because I’m exhausted this week or if its because its calming, but the minute I walk into the nursery I feel a sense of tranquility.  Its wonderful!  I can’t wait until its complete!

Sleep?  Delightful and much needed!

Discomforts?  Did you know that Restless Leg Syndrome is a real thing?!?!  I’ve always wondered what the heck that is?!?!  So you can’t help but wiggle your legs?  Yep, precisely!  You can’t help but wiggle your legs because the heavy, achy, tingly pain makes it so you can’t sit still. Its been less than stellar and I’d be okay if it didn’t last long.

Cravings?  Same ole stuff but you can add Red Vines to the list this week.

Miss anything?  Cold turkey sandwiches!

Movement?  She’s having more quiet days followed by more and more rowdy nights.  This little night owl is going to be just like her dad.  AND, speaking of her dad.  He’s been reading to us every night and she’s starting to react to his voice.  The minute he started reading last night, she started having a dance party.  When he would stop, then she would stop.  It was so cool!

Belly button in or out?  Still flat, but on its way out.

Wedding rings on or off?  Off.

Current mood?   Happy, happy, happy!  And feeling a bit crafty.  I can’t wait to start on my next nursery project!


  1. Oh man...Jacob has restless leg syndrom. No thank you!

  2. Looks great Emily :) Can't wait to see it all together. We just finished painting we also did the two colors with trim :) Makes the room seem so much bigger.
