26 weeks

Yes, I'm still completely behind on my pregnancy board updates here, I know! I promised to get better and then the renovation, visitor, party and moving rooms up and down adventure started. My To-do list is still really long but we are finally getting somewhere. We switched office and bedroom locations over the last two weekends and this means disassembling everything in each room and re-assembling it again. While we are at it, we also switched the bathrooms and I fell into a major nesting phase - meaning I re-organized everything and added plastic boxes and shelves etc. I think we are both nesting....

The baby preparation class was interesting for sure. Most couples were ahead of  us at the time when we took the class and the amount of information is somewhat overwhelming. It helps to feel more prepared even though I'm not sure that I'll remember any of it when the time comes.

I have to say that the second trimester in retrospect definitely was the most comfortable one. The nausea was   lighter and the exhaustion had left. I'm not (at 34 weeks) back in full fledged exhaustion, not to mention all the parts of my body that hurt in some way or another. I am certainly slowing down now and expect to spend the majority of my time at home in the coming weeks while 'getting ready' physically and mentally. :) Still a lot of books to read to prepare.

If you haven't heard from me in a while - I truly apologize. I'm growing a baby and it takes more energy and effort of preparation than I had anticipated.

As for the coming weeks - we are just continuing to get ready. Nothing special happening around here lately - just full blown nesting mode.
