23 Weeks

How far along?  23 Weeks.. Almost 24
Total weight gain/loss: about 16 lbs so far..

 Maternity clothes? A few maternity shirts here and there. Jeans are no longer comfy. So I think I am going to stick to my leggings, maternity shorts, and dresses until she comes.

Stretch marks? Nope, crossing my fingers that I can make it without any till the end!

Best moment this week: Buying a few more outfits for her.  Chris and his sister are finishing up the room tonight. My dad and Chris put up the wall for her room, and now the room just needs to be painted.

Miss anything: I miss being comfortable honestly.  I know everyone says I haven't even begun to hit the uncomfortable stage, but I think I am just in the beginning of it.  

Movement: Lots and her kicks are getting harder and stronger!

  Food cravings: Sweet and Salty foods.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I have felt really queasy today and not sure why.  But in general no sickness or queasiness.

Have you started to show yet: Yep, I think I should take this question out because there won't be a time from this point on that this question will ever say no haha!

  Gender: Girl!

Labor Signs: Nope!
  Belly Button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time! Some days I am so over being pregnant and really want to meet her and then other days I get really nervous for labor!

Looking forward to: Finishing her room and decorating it for her arrival.

the nursery

My hubby is finishing the drywall and painting everything this week after he gets off work, so Im def in the planning stages of Chloes' nursery.  I'm loving all of these Pinterest.  

Love the dresser with the changing pad on top of it. No need for a separate changing table when it doesn't always get used.

I LOVE everything everything about this picture. Baby on the cloth toy chest.  The name.  The white furniture. The rocker. The rug.

I want do have a organizational system for her closet.

Monogram everything is a MUST.

This is such a cute mobile.

The white night stand next to the glider with owls and a light.

Poms poms. Tree. Glider. Perfect color scheme.

And I Love this one too.  The Pom Poms.  White shelves.

I'm gettings so many ideas from Pinterest. I LOVE it.  We have picked out the crib and dresser so far, haven't found a rocker or night stand yet though.  I can't wait to get started on this project. :)

Birch Box February & March

February Birchbox

I didn't feel like this one was so great:
Ghiradelli Chocolate 
Perfume Sample
Nart - BB Cream
Green Nail Polish Sample
and Leave in conditioner and detangler

I haven't tried the nail polish yet.  The BB Cream was way to dark for me to use unfortunately.  But the leave in conditioner and detangler was great! It did make my hair super shiny and healthy looking.

March Birchbox

Now I did LOVE this one...
Nail Polish Strips
Pink hair band
Blueberry scented shaving cream
Nail file
Acne serum

Nail polish strips were a super cute color. Baby blue. The shaving cream smells good and makes your legs super soft.  I haven't used the hair band.  The acne serum works very well.  I have had acne problems since I got pregnant back in November.  So  this stuff you can actually use while pregnant (I was so happy!) It does dry your skin out so you have to use a good lotion at night with it.

Bark Box

The babies got their second Bark Box in the mail this month. Not quite a good as the first one, but it was still good stuff.

2 Toys
1 Bag of Bones
2 Small boxes of treats

A treat ball, which the little one loves the play with.  You put treats inside and this keeps her entertained for hours and hours.

The beige kangaroo toy.  Kangaroo on a rope.  Our big dog, Hurley, is a dogzilla when it comes to rope toys and toys with stuffing so this one didn't last very long.  Only about 1 week.

Get Naked Bones - Make of carrots and natural ingredients.  They really liked these ones.

Wet Noses Treats - Good samples size of about 5 treats each. These are also all natural.  The babies aren't too fond of these ones.
