11 days OVERDUE! eeek!

So, I know that I said I would update more often, but It takes longer than you think.

I didn't have a lot of time to do these pictures this time cause I am trying to have a baby!! But here is a progress picture and you can see how much i dropped! The pics range from 32 weeks to 39 weeks. I will post some overdue pics later. Just hopefully not 2 months later! haha.

I am currently 11 days OVERDUE.. just praying he will come on his own before Wednesday which is when I will get induced.
I had a sono today and they said he is approximately 10lbs 1oz. Large little man.

We have the room finished.. I am hoping to post pics soon. I may do that tomorrow! I am loving the way it turned out! Thank you to everyone who came to my showers! I got so much great stuff. I have very creative friends too that made me some really neat things!

Nathan's mom Tammy made my bedding for the nursery and I love it more than anything I saw in the stores. It is perfect and so cute. She did such an awesome job! Thank you so much!

Also, Nathan has set up a website for our little Abram! So go check it out.

Thats all for now. Time to go walk!!!

more progress

24 weeks

25 weeks

I am missing week 26 because we were on vacation. But soon i will upload the beach pictures we took. :)

27 weeks

28 weeks

29 weeks

30 weeks

This is the fabric that is going to be used to make Abrams bedding! I can not wait to see how it turns out!

This is going to be the changing table and the dresser at the same time. I bought one blue bin and I registered for 3 more! Sorry it's all a little messy right now, there is still alot that we need to do.

Here is an old sailboat that we will put in his room somewhere, I am hoping to find some more cute ones too.

Then of course I had to post some cute things I found. There is a lot more cute stuff I have but these shoes I just love!! I can just picture his little feet in there.

I found these awesome sunglasses at H&M and I had to get them! Daddy wears sunglasses all the time. And of course Abram wants to be just like daddy! <3
The fabric underneath them, I found on ebay and I am hoping to make a blanket out of it somehow.

There are still plenty of things we need to buy, like the crib and matress and hopefully we get alot of our stuff from our registry. We changed our mind about the crib. I think we are going to go with this one..

As of today I have 9 weeks and 4 days left. It is just going so fast! I wonder how I am going to feel about that in 5 weeks. haha.
I will keep everyone posted on how the dr. appts go and how I am feeling. So keep checking back.

There is nothing greater in life than growing our little baby in MY belly! There is NOT one thing that I could complain about being pregnant! Not being sick (a little) in the beginning.. not the weight gain, not the swelling, the zits, not being able to wear my ring! I love it all! I love having this belly that I can just rub and talk to our little Abram!

I can not wait to meet him, but I am sad that my belly will go away! Maybe we will just have to get pregnant again right away! hehe just kidding!

But really, I just want you all to know that this is so fun and I LOVE being pregnant! Besides.. its a good excuse to eat a lot of yummy food! <3

Update on the nursery.. we got the divider hung and I think the IKEA lady told me to get the wrong thing.. so we are going to keep it up for a bit and see if we like it. Tamara my mother in law was here this weekend celebrating Nathan's Birthday and Tammy and I got to chat a bit about the making of our nursery bedding that she will be making for us! I am so excited and Thank you SOOOO much Tammy! I can not wait. Our colors so far are going to be DARK Navy, White, Gray, Black, and Mustard!! :) we picked out some fabric and got some swatches to start planning! I also think we found the crib.

Well thats all for now, we have to leave for Nate's softball game now. GO LGC TEAM!!

I really think things on my blog are going to start picking up more. I am over half way and more things start happening now, like getting our nursery ready, which today I am going to put together my first nursery item which is a bookcase from IKEA that I will be putting on its side to make a changing table! I am so excited. And my baby showers are going to start getting planned. I can not wait. I will be posting more pictures as the nursery progresses and from my showers and stuff. So hopefully no more long wait between my blogs! :)

Nate and I are also celebrating 2 years of marriage today! This has truely been the best two years of my life! We have had so much fun and now especially with a baby on the way! Life if just moving right along for us!
In about 2.5 weeks, we are going to be going on vacation with Nate's family. We are treating that as an anniversary gift. I will also have Nate take ocean belly pictures of my belly! :) Then I will post those too! :)

Until next time fellow bloggers..

13 weeks!

Here is our most recent sonogram. Baby is 12 weeks here.

Every Thursday is when my weeks switch over, so this past Thursday I turned to 13 weeks. I am feeling pretty good. Still tired but good. On Tuesday, I did not feel good all day which ended in bowing to the bowl. But I am hoping that it was a last hurrah! :) I am feeling some ligament stretching, which can be a little uncomfortable at times. But its totally fine and worth it!
Nate has been taking growing pictures of my belly so when I am ready, I will post them. I have popped out pretty quick, so I am just trying to get past that just feeling fat stage.

Nothing else is really going on. Nate is with his family in Yorkville visiting and when he got there, he got a horrible earache! :( I feel so bad that I couldn't be there with him. HI EVERYONE IN YORKVILLE!! LOVE YOU! :)
The reason I didn't got to Yorkville is because I am heading out of town with some girls for a hairshow. We won't be back until Monday night! It should be fun though.

I have added a ticker at the top of my page, so check back often to see what the baby is doing! :) I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Guess What?!

Nathan and I are going to be Parents!

We started trying to have a baby at the beginning of the new year.. and to our amazement, it worked on the first try! :) I tell you, charting temperatures works! I have been off of birth control since November 07.. and have been charting since.. and right when we started trying, it worked on the first try! :) Baby Roberts is due September 17, 2009.

We are so excited to meet our baby! Yes, we are going to find out what it is going to be.

I found out that we were pregnant, only 10 days after i ovulated! I took a lot of pregnancy test. We just couldn't believe it. I have known for about 4 weeks now, and we kept it secret for awhile just to make sure everything was going to be okay! We told our family at at about 5 weeks and our close friends at about 6 weeks and everyone else at 8 weeks.. today I am 9 weeks and 3 days. I can't believe how fast it is already going!

Our first trip to the Dr. was so fun! I was really nervous to get my blood drawn since I had never had that done. It wasn't that bad at all.. I just can't look at the needle! We heard and saw the babies heartbeat! It was absolutely amazing. I have dreamed of this moment for so long! The heartbeat was 130 and it was strong! Some say.. BOY! haha. we will just have to wait and see!

I have been feeling really good. I just have moments where I have to stop and eat! If I don't, my stomach gets a little quesy. I hope it doesn't get any worse!

I am so excited to share our journey with all of you! This will definitely be something to blog about! So check back more often now! :)

I Feel the Need to Update!

So today is Thursday..

I have Thursdays off work and I always spend the day with my mom and sister (and her adorable kiddies). We used to go shopping and spend lots of money and eat out for lunch (that we could never decide on), most likely we would get a "fretzel" how Macy used to pronounce Pretzel when she was younger, and sometimes a coffee type of drink!

Well this year, is the year of change. My mom had a great idea to take each Thursday and spend it at one of our houses and whatever project we are working on at that time, everyone helps! This Thursday was my moms day. She is in the process of finishing their basement, so we went through some of our old stuff and helped mom get rid of it.. several times, she stuck her hand back in the garbage.. "wait, i think that nick wore that necklace alllll the time" haha.. my sister is good at helping get rid of things. I say.. if you dont know what is in there, then you haven't missed it, so throw it away. Last week, we were at my sisters helping her organize her storage closet. And the week before, we were at my house putting together an organizing system so i have somewhere to put all of my stuff. I do have a confession to make though.. My mom and sis are better at the organizing things .. so i usually feed the baby, rock the baby, talk and play with avery and evan, get them more chocy milk.. walk around, make more of a mess. Hopefully the more we do this.. the better i will get at actually helping clean and organize. What is my problem!?

Someday I will learn!

Well tomorrow my mom goes to chicago for surgery! :( she has a little issue with her eye! it crosses ;) so, she is getting if fixed! please say a prayer for my mom that she would not be scared and that she won't feel sick like they say she might. and that the dr. does an awesome job!

Thats all for now, sorry its been boring around here lately, it should pick up here soon.. when i get MORE MOTIVATED! Sorry no picture update either.

Bye Bye for now!
