Whelp, I am now 25 weeks pregnant! Some of you have asked to see the bump, so here it is!
Yep, still growing! I think I've gained about 15lbs so far, which is apparently right on track (though, it freaked me out a little at the doctors when she kept having to move the little weight farther down.. haha). I'm currently in the 'honeymoon' phase of my pregnancy, which means there's not much to complain about. I'm feeling pretty good and eating a lot of ice cream and chocolate :) I've been keeping up w/exercising (long walks w/Gibson every day and EA Sports Active 2 three-four times a week) and trying to maintain a healthy diet (besides the ice cream and chocolate). The bump is starting to get in the way (how exactly am I supposed to cut my toenails??), but it's manageable :)
The nursery is slowly coming along. I bought a super cute lamp and made a diy crib skirt last weekend, w/help from Young House Love. Pictures soon, I promise ;)
Ben and I have our 'babymoon' coming up, which we are exited about. Just a short trip out of town, which I will tell you more about when we get back! Gibson gets a little vacation out of the deal too!
Speaking of Gibson.. A lot of you have asked if we have been preparing him for the baby. Nope, not really yet! I think he's noticing my belly getting bigger and me slowing down, but we haven't done any real preparation yet. We plan on bringing home a blanket from the hospital for him to get used to her smell ahead of time.. and bringing him a toy when we bring her home... but not really sure what else we are supposed to do! Any advice veteran corgi + baby moms? :)
And finally, yes, we've picked a name. We actually had a girls name picked out before I was pregnant. I think I'll keep it a secret on the blog til the end if you don't mind... but for now, let's just call her 'Baby H'. Do w/that what you'd like ;) (but please don't spoil it if you already know.. geez! ;) )
