Waddle Waddle Waddle

Well, we're all moved in to the new house!!  Sort of... we still have boxes of books and pictures... things that aren't very urgent.  But the kitchen is all moved in.  It's so nice to have furniture again.  Ahhhhhh. 

It's been an adventure owning a house instead of just renting.  The gutter leaks, so who you gonna call?  Nobody!  Haha.  One of the toilet leaks (from the tank to the bowl) and we've replaced the chain, and then the flapper (which came with a chain), and then the tube thingy (which came with a chain and flapper).... and it's still running.  Hmmmmm.  Ian was thinking he'd just caulk the life out of it, and see if that works.

In other news, I'm at 30 weeks!!  I'm feeling pretty good.  It's been a weird experience with my hips and lower back being all loosy-goosy.  I found some free prenatal pilates/yoga podcasts, so after doing that for a bit, I'll let you know if it helps.  I've also been having some Braxton Hicks contractions!  My midwife said that it's all good, and it's just my body practicing.  Yay!  It makes me glad that we're starting birth classes at the end of the month, though.  It'll be nice to have our baby girl in front of me instead of inside me! 

I'm feeling rather unprepared in general... we don't have anything set up in the nursery yet, haven't narrowed down our names past the top 4, and don't have a car seat to bring her home in.  I know we still have 2 months... but for me it's feeling a bit urgent.  Just in case she comes early, it would be good to have a name picked out, and also be able to bring her home!  But, it's all coming together.  Perhaps I'm just nesting.

Me at 29 weeks!
