Week 19

IMG_2714

Happy week 19 everybody!

Life has been amazing and crazy busy since I last posted. What’s going on? On Sunday Ben and I went to a bunch of open houses. We figured that after all of the rain that we had the day before (2″) we would be able to take out the houses with wet basements (because who wants to deal with a wet basement as a first time homebuyer? not us) and we crossed a couple houses out because of that. We did find a house that we completely fell in LOVE with. So much so we put in an offer on the house. Once we know for sure we will let you all know. But how exciting is that? It is completely updated  (with a dry basement) and is totally amazing. :)

Yesterday we had our monthly appointment. We heard Baby B’s heartbeat. Its going strong at 154. Next week we find out if we are having a boy or girl, or one of both. (Hey I’m keeping an open mind. Just because we only hear one heart beat and feel one baby doesn’t mean another one can’t be hiding in there and the heartbeats cant be in sync, so thats that…)

Every now and then I feel a big kick (usually when I am driving so I cant stop what im doing and feel for some more… sassy baby)
Also, baby seems to like rock music. Whenever Thousand Foot Krutch – Courtesy Call comes on baby kicks more than normal this happened today… (for those who are curious, this is the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRPIInfuSCM .)

Last Friday we went to Babies R Us and we spent about an hour and a half looking at strollers and car seats. If anyone has any recommendations please feel free to share them. We are looking for a jogging stroller because of all the camping we do it would be nice to take the stroller with when the time comes.

Maternity clothes? Most of my work pants don’t work anymore, so I need to stock up on some skirts and dresses.

Sleep: Sleep has been amazing, although waking up every now and then to roll over or go to the bathroom is crazy…

Best moment this week:  Hearing the heartbeat again!

Welcome to week 18! Only 2 weeks until we find out if we are having a boy or girl.

Last week we spoke with a mortgage lender and we were pre-approved to buy a house. So last weekend we went to a few open houses. There were a few hits and a lot of misses. Tonight Ben and I met with a real estate agent and began actually looking at houses. We liked a few, but we would like to keep looking to see what is out there.

The weather lately has been AMAZING! We have been talking walks like its our job. Ruby has really been loving this weather as well! Along with this nice weather comes allergies and they have hit me hard today. no bueno…

Ben and I have also had some cookie dough sitting in the fridge from Papa Murphy’s. He told me that he would make make the cookies, but didn’t. SO I made them.
