One Less Spare Bedroom

The house is done, well almost done, minus the millions of small jobs everywhere that I feel we will continue to work on as long as we live there :-) We built a house to have 3 spare bedrooms, plenty of room for friends and family to come visit. We love to have visitors :-) It seems we love visitors so much that we decided to have a permanent visitor, an addition to our family. We will have a new arrival, a bundle of joy around April 27th. If you have not already guessed, I will help you along, we are expecting a beautiful baby, April 27th!! I am 15 weeks along and had no idea how much work pregnancy was.

This is the baby at 11 weeks. The one at 6 weeks looks like just a ball or dot so I didn't show it.

Here is a little update on the the pregnancy so far to get everyone up to speed. The first 12 weeks were full of alot of miserable excitement. And by excitement, I mean a trip to the E.R. and several doctor's visits in a matter of a week. Morning sickness has a whole new meaning and it is anything but morning, it is I can't get out of bed and throw up all day long. The days I did feel good, I just thought to myself, no one explains pregnancy the way I feel, which was anything but good. But thankfully that has passed and now I only have mild discomfort and manageable nausea but thankfully rarely throwing up. Right now the baby is the size of an orange. My last doctor's visit, probably due to "morning sickness" I had only gained 1 pound, thankfully!! I feel there is a little visible bump but usually I am the only one that notices it. We have purchased a changing table, because we found a great deal and now on the look out for a crib and rocking chair. We have a white room waiting to find out if our baby will be a boy or a girl to decorate.
We are thankfull there will be some time in between the house getting done and our new arrival to prepare and get ready.
Here is an update on the house. We have been staying in the house since Saturday. I have been unpacking and cleaning and wiping walls, trim, doors, and floors to get rid of the dust but I do believe it will be an ongoing problem for a little while. I am going to take on the task of cleaning the garage to get rid of the dust in there. Matthew is out of town so he can not say too much but he hates when I move his tools around!!
We have some furniture, enough to get by but will slowly buy the rest. On piece at a time. Right now, we are in the market for end tables, coffee table, bar stools, and bedroom furniture. Matthew is going to build my huge closet with shelves and organizers but right now it is an empty room. So thankful for my handyman. I will post pictures of the house soon.
