Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! Not at all!

What I've done this week to prepare for Baby Martz: Did I mention that I am in full nesting mode!?!? Well I am! I bought Kellen a crib/toddler bed and a dresser. So, Grayson will be able to use Kellen's crib and changing table/dresser since they are still in perfect condition. Kellen was really good and didn't chew on his crib like a lot of teething babies do. Kellen's dresser is now set up in his room, and Grayson's changing table is in his room. When I change Kellen, I just do it on the floor instead of having to lift him up now. I packed all of Grayson's clothes into our hospital bag, his newborn clothes are washed, folded and put in his dresser. We moved the super heavy filing cabinet out of the nursery (ok, Evan did, its way to heavy for me!). Now all I have to do is get rid of that Queen size bed, and 2 TV's and its all ready! This weekend I have 3 art projects I want to start so I can begin decorating the nursery! I will share pics once they are done, and let you all know that I am going to start selling them. I hope they turn out as cute as I see them in my head!
Happy or Moody most of the time? I am still overwhelmed and stressed out. I just feel like there is so much to do and I am just having a hard time getting it done.
Looking forward to: I am really excited about this weekend! I have a play date with my friends on Thursday, then on Saturday a really good friend of mine and her 5 month old and husband is coming to visit us, then Sunday is MOTHER'S DAY!!! I LOVE MOTHER'S DAY!!!!! I really want to get the supplies for my art projects! And, I want to try and get more stuff done around the house.
I didn't take a picture this past weekend to mark my 30 week belly, but I hope to do that soon, I am getting bigger and bigger!
This is what Grayson is up to this week:
-Your belly’s increasing size is a definite clue that your baby is
getting bigger every day, weighing in at over three pounds now (he’ll be
packing on the weight at a rate of half a pound per week for the next
seven weeks). Also growing daily is his brain, which is actually
starting to look like the real thing with those characteristic grooves
and wrinkles. And now that your little genius can regulate his own body
temperature and turn up the heat, he'll start shedding lanugo, the downy
body hair that's been keeping him warm up until now.
