    Everyone’s nurserys look great!  We are finished with the painting in ours and just built the crib. We are going to be re-painting dressers this weekend and then starting to put the Pooh wall decals up on Monday.  Once Quinn’s name decal comes we will put it up right away 🙂

    I turned 19 weeks yesterday and last night I started feeling really strong kicks for the first time. I was sooo excited! lol I’ve felt flutters for a few weeks but nothing like this. I even put my hand on my belly and felt a kick from the outside for the first time today.

    @ames12708:  Aww…I’m sure they were just trying to make you feel better even though it had the opposite effect. I’m having the opposite problem. I’ve had people asking me if I’m sure my dates are right because I look big for how far along I am. I’ve also been asked if I’m sure that I’m not having twins. It’s making me a bit paranoid that I’m getting too big too fast!

    @Lyndzo:  Your room is looking great! I had a winnie the pooh themed nursery when I was a baby but it definitely wasn’t this bright and colourful.

    @ScottishMrs:  Thank you! I hope moving is as stress free for you as it possibly can be. We recenty had our hardwood floors refinished so we had to move every single thing off the main level to the basemennt. That was no fun.

    @lroetheli:  Happy shopping! 🙂 I went to target about a week ago and they had a bunch of cute clothes on clearance,, Of course, I couldn’t resist the urge to get a few things.

    @As_You_Wish:  Thanks!

    Isn’t it so exciting when you can feel them from the outside?  I am ready to welcome the painful kicks just to have a reminder that my little one is in there.

    I have to say…

    Planning for a baby/nursery is SO much harder than planning for a wedding.  I wish I could just give birth and have the nursery pop out along with it LOL

    @ScottishMrs:  Nope, not fun at all! I told myself that if we ever sell our house and decide to buy another, the floors better be done how we want them or we better be getting them done prior to moving in. I’m not going through this process again.

    I certainly hope so. Or, you could have someone watch baby while you’re busy packing/moving.

    Anyone else experiencing zero appetite? I have to force myself to eat. I don’t feel sick or anything I just never get hungry. Last night was our mini gender reveal…just a few friends getting together, mostly talking and watching football but we also shared the gender nothing major, but we had all this yummy food and I ended up throwing most of mine away and I had barely eaten all day or the day before. I’m getting worried that I’m not getting enough nutrients and I know there is no way I am getting enough protien. 

    Can anyone relate?

    @ames12708:  I have the opposite problem…I’m hungry all the time! I kind of wish that I wasn’t this way because I’m going to look like a whale by January. As long as you’re not skipping meals I’m sure your baby is getting all of the nutrition they need.

    I had zero appetite until a few weeks ago. Then it was normal but I still ate much less.  The last 3 days I’ve been SO hungry and I’m trying not to over eat.

     

    Does anyone else have a baby that likes to sit on their spine?  At my 3D ultrasound she was on my spine, the lady had my flip onto my belly for 5 minutes to get her to flip around. Just now at home with the doppler I could barely hear her, realized she was on my spine again, flipped over and sure enough I feel wiggles and taps as she flips over.
