We're Moving!

Well, everything has gone through with the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new house in Victoria!

We will officially be in Victoria on March 20th! We're both so totally excited :) At that point I will be almost 33 weeks along in my pregnancy. I sure hope the baby holds out until at least 38 weeks! Over the last week I have been packing up a storm and feeling so relieved that my husband and I had gone through all of our drawers and storage items over the last few months, making it very easy to pack things up.

The baby has been kicking up a storm lately so much so that I can watch my belly bop and bounce around for 30 minutes or so at a time, it's awesome! Jeff and I are trying to narrow down our choices on names, but it's pretty scary knowing that we are deciding a name for our unborn child .. we hope we pick a good one! We're going to keep our choices a secret until the little one is born.

Anywho, I'm zonked and should lie down and rest. Take care, and thanks for reading!

And I thought I was stressed before!

Well, it has been quite an interesting weekend. As my husband Jeff left for China last week I have been experiencing quite a whirlwind of house crazyness. We ended up officially selling our condo this past Wednesday, so that was great. We had our home inspection on Friday for the house we are hoping to buy and since then, things have been getting difficult. It doesn't help that I have all of these crazy hormones going through my body right now - causing some nice meltdowns.

It's so exciting, buying a new house and all, but the headaches that come with it sure are annoying! Trying to find out if the property is insurable, making sure the things on the home inspection aren't too major, trying to ask our family and friends for their input, trying to contact a home insurance company on the weekend in Victoria (impossible!), and trying to communicate with Jeff in China.. On top of the house headaches my lovely mom accidentally hit the front of our car yesterday morning and it's all banged up and will need to visit the shop.

I hate to be miss complainer - but I just need to vent! I've been having these wonderful ligament pains - I think i've had 3 now, and it feels like i'm going to get another one any moment. Picture the worse muscle cramp you have ever had, it's happening in your lower abdomen/hip flexor area, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. During all three of my lovely pains I have been yelling and rolling around on the floor. On the positive side, maybe it will help me prep for the real thing? hehe. I guess what happens during pregnancy is that your ligaments around your belly stretch from the length of your finger nail to the length of your forearm, so.. it's a little painful.

The other downside of the weekend was finding out that I will not be able to re-paint the nursery furniture we were given in white. Well, we could.. but it would take about a gazillion hours of sanding tiny spindles. :( So.. we are making the thrifty decision to just leave it as it is and try to make the room work with it. (I really had my heart set on a fabulous nursery, but we just don't have the money for a 300$ crib and a 300$ dresser and moving, but really, who does?! ) Oh, on the upside - i stopped by in Sumas, WA on Friday to pick up the new crib bedding :) The quality is great and I'm very happy with how it looks :) Cannot wait to see it in action!

A positive thing from the weekend is that I went swimming this morning with my mom. I tried to do some underwater flips to see if the baby would flip as well. I'm not too sure if it did, but I didn't feel it. I'm thinking it probably got motion sickness and was throwing up hehe.. Anywho, it sure was a nice feeling being in the water. I felt so light and flexible :)

Thanks for reading my horrible writing and all of my complaints :) I just had to get it out!
