so im trying to be better at blogging. thinking about changing the layout again and also plotting on how to decorate her room. we wanted to paint, but ive also seen “renters” wallpaper, heard of a method of starching fabric on the walls for decorations, and i have looked into wall decals. i think a nice tree in there somewhere would look pretty, ive noticed trees are pretty popular in nurseries? anyway my moms friend a couple of years ago made this beautiful tree on a wall using brown paper so it was 3D too. ive been toying with that idea.
babycenter app says: my uterus now reaches up under my rib cage [thats how she kicks me in the ribs !] and is crowding my other organs [ my bladder maybe? i feel like im peeing a lot] if we could see inside, it would show theres more baby than amniotic fluid, which should mean she isn’t doing somersaults and stuff, but i think she is still, at least it feels that way. her kidneys are fully developed, and her liver can process some waste products. her main job now is to put on weight. which in turn means i will be putting on weight.
