Well, I am officially in week 26, with just 98 days left to go! Although people have been telling my they wouldn't be surprised if I delivery early because I am so petite. Only time will tell. I have been feeling really good up until now, but I am starting to get a little uncomfortable. This past weekend I constantly felt full, and could barely eat anything on July 4th. It feels like someone is blowing up a balloon inside of me and it is pushing on all my insides. Like I might just split open. Luckily I am feeling better today and I am actually looking forward to dinner tonight.
Week 25 went smoothly, and I signed Baby Girl Cox up for childcare. I am trying to come up with a better word for daycare. It sounds so terrible. We chose a Kids R Kids franchise in our neighborhood, with a 4 to 1 ratio, great hours, friendly staff and a chef for when she starts eating solid food! I am very fortunate that The Husband completely supports my need to return to work. I know it can be a controversial topic, but I feel like it is the right decision for me for a number of reasons.
I am also making good progress on the nursery, but I am not ready to show you guys any pictures yet. I have a few more things to get done, and in 2 weeks my parents are coming to visit to help us finish up some projects. Till then you will just have to wait! But I promise it is looking good. I keep going in there to admire the wall I painted - I am so happy with how it turned out. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to make my mental vision come to life but so far so good!
Tonight I am off to get a haircut. I have been trying to grow it out but it grows SO slowly and I want to get rid of some of the layers I have. So I will probably have to cut some off. To which I am sure The Husband will say, "I thought you were trying to grow it out?" Contrary to what everyone says, pregnancy has not made my hair grow or look thicker. I already had SUPER thick hair to begin with and my efforts to grow it out longer (to make my face look less fat!) have not been successful!
