Starting to nest

I bought my very first article of clothing for baby. It was a sleeper from Costco, not a huge purchase but still a very important one. I am starting to connect with this baby. I am getting more and more excited as the days tick by and I am getting more and more ready for a little tiny newborn. I haven't opened the door to the nursery in months and I am now ready to go in and dust off all the baby items we are going to need.

A couple of days ago while I was waiting to get my lovely heartburn medication refilled at superstore I began browsing through the baby section. I couldn't help but pull all the car seats off the shelf and do the one-two inspection of them. Will this work for baby? Will this not? How heavy is this one compared to the other etc. I rushed home to tell Blair all about the things we need to do/get for this baby. We are now down to less that 3 months and with talk of induction due to the cord being around B2's neck (only a few weeks early) the months are getting shorter. I might get my Halloween baby after all!

Pregnancy Update:
How far along? 27 weeks and a bit
Total weight gain: 20 pounds (don't judge me!)
Stretch Marks? Same old ones, no new ones, no expansions yet either. Yay
Sleep? What's that?! Between Kaiya, my hips and the heat I am lucky to get 2 hours in a row.
Best moment this week: Our very first B2 purchase.
Movement? It's an acrobat in there, already taking after it's sister.
Food Cravings? None that I can tell, just loving food in general right now.
Gender? This week I think it might be a boy. I am feeling very aggressive ;)
Labour sign? Holy Braxton Hicks Batman!
Belly button in or out? Out. Almost a full cabbage patch nubbin now. You can see it through my clothes.
What I miss? being able to move quickly. Everything is in slow motion now. Getting up, sitting down. I feel 90.
What I am looking forward to? Buying the new car seat, hopefully this weekend.
Weekly Wisdom? Don't leave sandwiches unattended on the kitchen counter. It might just disappear.
Milestone: Passing my Gestational Diabetes test. Dino-sours here I come.
