Another Appointment...

I had my first twice a month midwife appointment today! It does make me feel a little better to stand on the scale and only see a 3 lb weight gain!! (I don't think my brain wants to admit that 3 lbs in 2 weeks is the same as 6 lbs in 4 weeks!!) So now I weigh 138.. Woo hoo! Everything else is looking good- I had Rich come with me today because he is on spring break, and it was fun to have him there to hear the heartbeat again. *He has only ever gone to my appointments when I have an ultrasound- the monthly ones really just aren't that exciting!* I did find out my blood type today!! B positive. Rich was bummed that we can't share blood (he's A positive), but I was excited to FINALLY know what my type is!! I had my blood test done back in November, but then I switched midwives, and had to transfer the results over to my new girl, and I never remembered to ask what it was!

So that is about it on the baby front. I completely forgot to bring a camera to California, so no pictures from my trip there. But it was a ton of fun going to the garment district with my mom and Lindsay, going to Kenzie's wedding, hanging out with Fackrells, and going to church at my home ward!! (Even though it has changed SO MUCH!! I don't know half the people there anymore!!). Now that I have finished all my projects for Camryn, I probably won't post until my crib arrives! So look for new pictures around the first two weeks of April! XOXO

Stuff I made for Camryn

So apparently my "conscience" aka my MOM has been wanting to post these pictures for quite awhile now. I thought I wanted to wait until my crib arrives (should be early April) so that I could do a post with a finished nursery.... but apparently I was wrong. So here are all of the things I have made for Camryn (or her room) so far:

The color is a bit off in this picture, but this is a picture frame I made for the top of her dresser. I bought the frame at Heartland Paper (aka my favorite place EVER), covered it in a brown and white polka dot scrapbook paper, and covered a tiny C in cream scrapbook paper. Then I played around with some ink pads I got for distressing... I am pretty happy with the result!!! I think I am going to put her foot prints in the picture section... we'll see.

For this C, I covered a cardboard C that I got (again) at Heartland, and distressed with a more tan ink pad.

This is a close up view of the "flower tree" I made. My super crafty friend Aymee helped me cut the flowers with her cricut, and showed me what technique to do. Basically I layered two different flowers on top of each other, slightly curled the top flower, and pinned it to a big Styrofoam ball. Then we got a stick from her backyard, stuck it in the bottom, and put that in a green foam pad inside a pot. Then we covered it with moss.

Here are all three things together!

This is the entire top of the dresser. Rich's grandparents gave us the carosel for Christmas this year, and I bought the pink goose (or duck.. but I call it a goose) at Real Deals (another one of my favorite places!). I LOVE how all of this came together!

These are the letters I made to hang over her crib. We need to make a magnet board, and then we'll hang the letters from knobs that I painted white, orange, and brown, and glued magnets to the back of... Cute, right??

I made these burp cloths with Lindsay while she was here last month. She was nice enough to share the cute colored burp cloths that she bought with me!

These are the 0-3m onesies I made Camryn. The argyle goes with a plaid skirt I bought her over Christmas, and the fish goes with some fish shorts I got her.

These are the newborn oneseies. She MIGHT wear one of these home.... not sure which one yet.. But I am in love with all of them!!

I even learned how to make hooded towels!!

I bought these PJ pants for 99 cents at Old Navy with Lindsay when we went outlet shopping in Park City. They were missing a shirt, so I just made her one to match!

Flower headbands I made for her! I bought flowers at various craft stores, cut the stems off, and glued them onto clips so that I can switch flowers out as I please!

Last but not least, here are some felt hair clips for the girl. I'm planning on making more after I go to visit my mom (and her new tool that cuts felt!) this weekend.

Well there you have it. I hope my conscience is happy. More pictures next week after I get back from CA!! XOXO

Midwife Appointment

So I went to my last once a month appointment with my midwife today!! Now I get to start going twice a month!! I am actually really excited, because it means we are getting closer and closer to the end of pregnancy... YAY!

I now weigh.... (drum roll please...) 135!?!?!?!?!? That is a seven pound weight gain!! I was totally on board for six pounds a month, but seven??? Hahaha... I don't know about that one!! Everything else looks good. Heartbeat is strong, she is still head down and favoring my right side, and that is about it!

I will post a new gut shot when I hit 30 weeks... so like 2 1/2 weeks til I get to show that off! Woo hoo!! Soon I will post all of the stuff I have made for Camryn! XOXO
