I have been feeling great! I really had it easy for the first trimester and try not to complain very much. I am still working part time at Blackbear Diner and that leaves me feeling super beat after work, but I'm only working around 25 hours a week. However, I am on my feet for 5-6 hours without a break...so that is rough. The couch and I have become great friends.
When I was having my two week "rough patch" I lost 6 pounds. I'm not sure if I've gained all that back yet since my scale's battery conveniently pooped out. It's a special battery, so we'll see when I get around to replacing it. I have been playing around with some maternity pants and shirts. I don't really need the pants yet but they are suuuper comfy. The problem with wearing them is that I have to wear a maternity shirt with it to be long enough to cover the stretchy-belly part.
Erin is out of town right now, so naturally I went shopping. Yesterday I bought our stroller!! YAY! I had been thinking about getting a BOB for a while and knew we would only be using one stroller and it might as well be a jogging stroller. We received some Christmas money from Erin's mom and put it towards the BOB. I am tempted to open it up and put it together, but it will just sit collecting dust until June. We'll see how long I hold off ;) Also, I had pizza for dinner. Don't tell Erin.

We plan on using our back bedroom as the nursery. Currently it has our guest bed, dresser, and some bookcases in there. We can move the bed into our craft room/office and store some books in the basement. The nursery will need to be gender neutral! However, it will not be full of yellow and green. It will be cute! I don't even need to paint because the color is fine. It's like a grey/blue/pastel color.
I've been painting a dresser/changing table a friend gave me with antique white chalk paint for the nursery. I like this crib. A lot! (Not really the mattress cover)
This is an old picture of the back bedroom but this is the color we will be keeping.
