Weeks 27 & 28

Welcome to the 3rd trimester!  I've been here for about a week or two, depending on how you divide 40 weeks into trimesters.

In the last couple of weeks, we have purchased/ordered our nursery furniture (I had no idea how long it would take to get it... kind of frustrating!), started registering, purchased a changing table for the nursery, started the process of having our rocking chair reupholstered, and finished buying our living room furniture.

Here's the furniture we ordered. We got the crib and the dresser/hutch combo.  We opted for the combo because we can use it for bookshelf space, as well as a dresser.  This, of course, means that we wouldn't be able to use the top of the dresser as a changing table, so we got a separate one that we think will match really well!  Here it is:

Here's another shot:

Gibbs & Changing table

Gibbs wanted to hang out in the nursery while we were taking our weekly picture! Ziva was there, too, but Gibbs was actively posing for a photo-op.

Registering has been a bit overwhelming!  Thankfully, my awesome sister-in-law came with me on my day off to help me at Babies 'R' Us.  She's already got two kids, with one more on the way, so it was really nice to have someone with experience there to help and to look at what she was going to get, too!  I am hoping to be finished in the next week or so.

As for the rocker... we inherited this rocker from my brother and sister-in-law.

Rocking Chair

I actually got it before we were married, and we've used it as a regular armchair since we got married.  I did a bit of research and got some bids from a few different upholsterers in town.  We decided on one company, purchased upholstery fabric--to coordinate with the nursery bedding, and I dropped off the chair this morning.  It will be ready in a couple of weeks!

We ordered the last of our living room furniture yesterday.  We are thinking that everything will be ready to take some pictures of our house for the blog in about a month!

In the meantime, here's the pictures from week 27 and week 28!

Week 28

The picture of week 28 was from this morning... I have on no make-up, nor did I do my hair.  Yesterday, after our doctor's appointment, Jared and I went to PF Chang's for lunch.  I have no idea what it was about lunch, but something seriously disagreed with me.  I do NOT think it was food poisoning-I would have been much sicker.  But I did end up getting rather ill yesterday, especially right before bed.  I have had less than positive Chinese food experiences lately, but I thought it was because I was eating too much.  Now, I am just vowing not to eat Chinese until this baby comes out.  I don't care if I'm craving it: it's not going to happen!

Anyway, I am hoping to post more later on things like our Dallas trip and other things.  Stay tuned!

  2. I like the hutch/dresser combo. Can't wait to see all the new furniture. It's so much fun to get new furniture! And you look so cute preggers, Alina! Smile, breathe, and enjoy it!
