Baby K's Nursery

Last summer, the nursery was an office space that we never used. This is what it looked like:

It's kind of embarrassing how empty and undecorated it was. But when I say we never used it, we NEVER used it. Our laptop was always either in the living room or the rec room and that's what we use 99.9% of the time.

This is what the office space looks like now as the nursery for our baby girl:

Baby K's room isn't quite finished. We are still looking for some blue accents, we need to get a changing pad to put on the dresser, we want to add some wall art with her name and I'm still deciding what I want to do for bedding. I love bumpers but I'm not sure if I want to spend the money on bumpers that will just be there for looks. If I get them, I'm not planning on using them in the crib until she's older. I'm also contemplating whether or not to get  a crib skirt. The crib really looks unfinished without the bumper and skirt. Oh the choices...
I'm really happy that the room is just about complete!

33 Weeks 2 days

I can't believe I'm already 33 weeks! Time is really flying but at the same time I'm ready to be done. I'm lucky to still be sleeping alright at night but I am so, so tired during the day trying to keep up with my preschoolers. Thank God I'm on April vacation this week!
Baby K is looking great. I've been having weekly non-stress tests to monitor contractions that I've been having since 28 weeks. My doctors believe that the contractions are being caused by dehydration but I'm literally drinking as much as I can. It has been much better since being home this week. It's difficult to drink constantly in the classroom since I can't run to the bathroom whenever I need to.
When I last updated, Baby K was measuring big, by about a week, for her gestational age. At my last growth scan at 32 weeks, she was measuring right on track.
I had my first baby shower last Saturday. I got so many awesome things from my family and I am so thankful for my mom and sister for hosting! One of my favorite gifts was from my friend, a cloth diapering mama! She gave me a Bumgenius freestyle and and Itti-bitti tutto but the best part was she MADE me a bunch of super cute diaper covers! They are adorable and a few of them even had ruffles on the butts! I will have to post pics of them soon. They are so cute I can't wait to use them on Baby K!
