Oh baby...

I don't know if I have ever been as miserable in my whole life as I was yesterday. Not only was it at least 100,000 degrees in my apartment, but I have a horrid headcold and can't breathe, and on top of it all, I'm 6 months pregnant! I haven't whined so much since I had morning sickness...

As my belly seems to be expanding exponentially overnight, it also seems to be getting lower and lower, and the kicks are lower and lower. How on earth am I supposed to "drop" when the time comes?! This kid will be falling out! (Gross visual, I know, but that's how I feel!) All of this is now giving Justin reason to believe it's a boy, since I now seem to be carrying low. We'll see.

In addition to those kicks that feel so odd, like popcorn popping in my belly, I'm also getting some nice sharp elbow jabs. I don't so much like those.

In other news, the baby's room is almost entirely empty and ready to start transforming into a nursery! Just a couple more things to pack up and haul out, and I can get started on the fun part! My rocker will be coming up shortly, and once it goes on sale, my parents will buy our crib and we can get set up! Until then, I can start on the little things, like curtains, baskets for the bookshelf, and little decorations. I'm pretty pumped! And, we're planning on buying the carseat next week with garage sale money. It's getting closer! Yay!!

SO excited friend--for you, for Justin, to see pictures of the nursery, to see your preggo belly (hopefully soon) and, of course, for your baby! :)
