Third Trimester Recap:

I can't believe I am finally 40 WEEKS!!! I am so ready to meet my little guy. I really hope he decides to make his grand entrance sooner rather than later :) 
Written at 40 Weeks
Any changes from the 2nd trimester?
My arthritis flared up around 30 weeks and never let up, so it put an end to needlepointing and yoga :( However, I have been able to do a lot of walking to keep in shape!
My bump has also gotten insanely big. I am shakin in ma boots to see how big #minimfb is at birth! 
Total weight gain?
40 lbs
Rings on or off? 
I haven't been able to wear my rings since about 28 weeks :( I can't wait to be able to wear them again sometime soon! 
First drink/meal post baby?
Champagne (and I also planned to have sushi, but later learned I can't go there until I'm done in about 6 months I will have champs and sushi!) 
Coming home outfit? 
Grammy purchased this one in newborn and I'm also bringing a back up onesie in size 3-6mos in case he doesn't fit in newborn, which is looking pretty likely! 
The car seat is installed and ready to go! We just can't wait to take our little guy home!

#Minimfb's Nursery!!!

The nursery is complete! It came out better than I could have ever imagined. It is seriously the happiest and coziest room I've ever seen :) I can't wait to bring our little man home to such an amazing room. Here is what we did: 

1) We live in a 1 bedroom with a dining alcove, so the first step was converting the dining alcove into a separate room since it was open to the kitchen and living room. We used Manhattan Pressurized Walls and they did a great job:

2) Then we had the room painted a beautiful shade of blue:
 3) Next, MFB went to work on his mural. I was a tad nervous about this idea, but MFB shocked us all with his hidden artistic talent! He found this stencil kit from My Wonderful Walls and did a fabulous job!

4) Then it was time to decorate! The bookshelf was something I bought at Linens N Things circa 2005 and the changing table was a hand-me-down from MFB's brother's fam. The crib, rocker, rug, blackout shades, mobile, elephant lamp and bedding are all Pottery Barn Baby. The giraffe head is from Serena and Lily
