Bump Update Week 24

Week 24
Week 24 STATS:

Size: Baby is the size of a grapefruit, and a little over 1 lb.

Maternity Clothes: Depends on the day! If it is a dress or a shirt, maternity clothes are not necessary at this point, although they are much more flattering than pre-maternity clothes. When it comes to pants...maternity all the way!

Weight gain: Depends on the day, but about 7-8 lbs

Stretch Marks: Not yet, but i think it is bound to happen...90% of women get them!

Gender: BOY

Food Cravings: I don't really crave anything more than I normally would. But I did hear my mom talking about a "Philly cheese steak sandwich" and I couldn't stop thinking about it...

What I miss: drinking a glass of wine with dinner

Symptoms: a growing bump, slow digestive system, baby movements

Best moment of the week: Nursery Painting!!

Baby room in the makin'

The nursery process has begun and I couldn't be happier! Having the crib set up is surely making this "we're having a baby" much more real! I struggled between white and espresso furniture and I'm so happy we went with espresso! Now that the baby room colors have been decided, it is a time for paintin'! I know that I want gray... But what shade of gray? I do not know! Also above the crib we have three little windows.. Not quite sure what to do with them..
1. Three small curtains
2. One wide valance
3. Two larger curtains that I can pull closed
What do we think? Any ideas?

Nursery Colors

Anyone who knows me personally can tell you I am a very indecisive person... Which makes the fact that I have set nursery colors, well, almost a miracle! Gray and white chevron with a hint of aqua/blue it will be!

African Safari

If it was up to the hubster the nursery would be full of African safari animals. He found some paper mâché safari animals from anthropoligie! Of course they are pretty expensive, so if we do go this route we will be doing DIY safari animals!

Nursery inspiration

Ever since I found out we were expecting I was dying to find out if this little bebe was a girl or boy. I wanted to pick nursery colors, buy some cute outfits, pick a name etc. of course now that it is time to do all these things... I realize how indecisive I really am! Here are some pictures of the inspiration so far.
