7 Quick Takes: Pregnancy Edition

This is my first time participating in the 7 Quick Takes link up from Conversion Diary, and I'm pretty excited! This edition will be dedicated to some random pregnancy thoughts and observations. Please forgive the lack of photographs!
I think I'm already over the nesting stage and boy was it short lived! For those who know me, I'm a major procrastinator, so this probably isn't much of a surprise. Or I might just be lazy too. We did some deep cleaning right around Christmas and I was getting really excited about organizing the baby room. Jeremy's parents got us a bookcase with doors on the lower half which helped so so much with storage. Now to just go through the other %75 of baby gear.
Discovery: When you are short on storage; use your car. Wow, that probably sounds like the worst idea ever! But seriously, when you live in an apartment with two bedrooms, no attic or basement, and suddenly have mounds of baby stuff (that kid already has more than we do!), it's a good place to stick stuff in a pinch. Like when you get two car seats and are too lazy to install them right away- just shove them in the back seat of one car ;)
Putting on socks and shoes and most other things becomes quite difficult after 33 weeks. Also cutting your toenails. No explanation needed there...
Suddenly becoming large greatly decreases the options in your closet. On the flip side, choosing outfits becomes way easier since there are only five things in the closet that fit you!
Make sure you have married a man who lets you snuggle on the couch all night and read an entire book. I finished A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson last night. Extra points for the guy who doesn't criticize you for not doing the dishes instead and super bonus points for the one that does them ;)

My sewing machine arrived today! I had just enough time to pull it out of its box and drool over it. Now to finish all the projects in the four weeks I have left! Wish me luck!

  1. Yep, that clothing options thing. It simultaneously drove me crazy and made me wish I ALWAYS only had 5 outfits. :)
    I have a Brother sewing machine, too, and I love it! I can't wait to see what you make!
