I don't think there is a more wonderful feeling in the world than your baby moving. I wish there was a way to bottle it and remember it forever. I know once she is out I will never be able to truly remember what it feels like. It reminds me of when you get to the top of a hill on a roller coaster, or how I imagine I would feel if I was a lava lamp. I wish there was a way for the husband to get how neat this is. My baby girl definitely had a lull in activity for awhile there, but she is making up for it tenfold. She has been staging a revolt for days now and I can feel her on both side of my stomach. I imagine she has inherited my husbands long legs and is trying to stretch out in there. I am starting to definately see shapes jutting out and can tell when she is balled up on one side of my belly. I wish hubby found it as enthralling as I do, he doesn't have the patience to keep his hand there for very long. I am 31 weeks today. I will take an updated pic. I really need to get the video camera out and try and capture some of this belly movement.
Gary finished painting the nursery last night. It is the greatest shade of purple ever, it's called Lupin if you want to see it at the store! It't not a pastel purple, it's deeper than that without being dark. I also found some great potterybarn crib bedding on craigslist and I picked it up last night and it matches perfectly and is in good shape. Score! I can't wait to put the crib and changing table together. But I think I will wait for next weekend. My sister is coming up specifically to help me get the nursery in order and we'll need things to do. Plus Gary still has to pain the closet in the nursery, so its not 100% ready to go. He keeps his clothes in this room and I think we will keep it that way and just keep baby's stuff in the dresser. So much to organize.
I am mostly feeling better. I think I will do my excercise DVD tonight b/c I need to go to target too and don't want to be away from the house all night. Have to spend some time with my boys.
