28 weeks!

Third. Trimester.

Now that Christmas is over, Charlee prepping has commenced. Her room already looks better because the holiday is over. It was Christmas Central up in there between presents, wrapping paper, and décor. That just means I need to find another solution for next year.

Onto the bumpdate.

 Baby size: Chinese cabbage. Seriously, where does this app come up with these comparisons?
Any symptoms?  Heartburn. My hips had shooting pains in them yesterday. All the emotions. Round ligament pain.
Favorite part this week? Mama got to open some presents for Charlee
Least favorite part this week? Having the stomach flu AGAIN!
Boy or Girl? GIRL!
Names? Charlee Danielle

Friday morning shortly after breakfast I started feeling a little nauseous. No big deal. I just ate breakfast, had my progesterone shot about 14 hours prior, and it's just par for the course at this point that I feel like I'm going to throw up. I still scheduled a lunch date for my mom with Tucker and me since I wasn't working that day and didn't want to be cooped up in the house all day. Plus if it was just nausea I could eat through it and I would feel better. Buffalo Wild Wings was probably not the brightest choice, but if I can't eat B-dub's then we have a real issue. Well, we had an issue. I texted Danny's sister (Danny was at work until 5ish) to see if I could bring Tucker over when we got back into town until I either felt better or Danny got home. Thankfully she said yes because about 7 minutes I dropped him off, my 2nd round of the stomach flu this month began. I was miserable until about 5:30 the next day. It literally took me hours again to determine if I was sick or just nauseous.

The good news is it was short lived, but I am back to being just nauseous. I'll take it.

As for Charlee prepping... the first order of business is to get a few projects around the house done.
1. Some DIY photo ledges that I talked about last April. I've had the materials since early 2016. Danny is taking them to work on Friday so that he can cut the boards down and I can start staining soon.
2. Get the mudroom into a high functioning state. We hung the coat rack yesterday and I'll be on the hunt for command center materials this week.
3. Finish moving Tucker's décor to his new room. I took his curtains down the other day, but he has a picture and some tractors left in his old room. I decided we need shelves for his room to display his tractors. Danny decided I won't be happy until we have a house made of shelves.

Once those 3 things are done, which I'm hoping will be over this stretch of days off for Danny or the next stretch, it's time to get Charlee's room done. Which includes refinishing a dresser. That is still in my brother's barn. And I only have a vague idea of what I want to do. It's fine. If she's like her brother she will arrive in less than 2 months, but its fine.

Tomorrow I will recap our 4 Christmases we had over the weekend.
