I thought since I'm (maybe? almost? kinda?) officially entering that "any day" stage, I should really bring all of you wonderful people up to speed on this 3rd pregnancy of mind. I've been glad I took the time to write down details of my pregnancies and births on my blog, and last night I spent awhile looking through the last few weeks leading up to the births of my girls - and I didn't want to miss the opportunity to at least record a little info this time around too. First, a little recap:
DEC 2012: One night I nearly gagged when Dan prepped his morning coffee, and I KNEW that feeling...so I promptly took a pregnancy test the next morning. I'll be honest, it was a bit of a shock this time around. We wanted more children, but the timing wasn't exactly what we had in mind :) Christmas and New Years were spent sharing our news (albeit a bit early) with family, and trying not to smell any of the delicious cooking going on.

Then she was even more amazing and patient with me, and she spent nearly a whole day shopping for said room (and dealing with my indecisiveness when it comes to decorating). After they left, my nesting really kicked into high gear! Having the room nearly ready gave me the boost to start organizing, washing, gathering, and taking inventory of what we have and what we need for little mister. I also tackled sewing my own black-out curtains (which I finished yesterday - yay!), and a few other little sewing projects that I have had fun with. I think my nesting has been encouraged by frequent Braxton Hicks contractions, frequent trips to the doctor, and other such signs that the end is in sight!

I will try and keep you posted in these next days and weeks as the arrival of our son draws near. If you made it to the end of this post (Mom & Kels), thanks for muddling through :)
