I hope that the next 77 days go really smooth and very quick but slow enough to where I'm able to accomplish everything that I'm supposed to do.

We are slowly getting everything together though. I bought her dresser yesterday on a random trip to Babies "R" Us during my lunch break. It was on clearance since it's being discontinued and I got an extra discount since it's the floor model. I think J and his dad are picking it up either this weekend or next weekend. We are going shopping for more baby stuff on Saturday and we're also going to find a new couch and a dining set.
Friday is my 28-week appointment. I really hope that I pass that stupid diabetes screening! My doctor told me to bring a book or magazine since I have to wait an hour after I take the syrup to get my blood drawn. Thank goodness for Borders coupons I'm going to pick up The Happiest Baby on the Block tomorrow. I've read great reviews about this book and how it was so helpful with newborns that I've been wanting to read it.

I'm officially in the last trimester of my pregnancy! It was 27 weeks yesterday and according to Alpha Mom's website - - - my baby is now the size of a 15 inch teddy bear weighing about 2 pounds.
This has to be the fastest going pregnancy on record not unless this last trimester goes very slow. It's going to be very busy for us from here on out...
- third tri screening next week
- we move Memorial weekend
- take Labor Class at the hospital
- my bff's wedding is in June
- tour labor and delivery facility at the hospital
- shop for the baby
I'm really looking forward to our move and taking off for 11 weeks once the baby is here. It's going to be a fun and exciting summer for me and J.

J and I went to the PB outlet last week in hopes of finding a great deal on a crib set. We came home with 2 super-soft pink sheets and that was it. I figured I'd go the ebay route but couldn't really find anything.
We narrowed it down to Kayla and Katie. Both are pink and very cute until I went to Short Pump yesterday. They had the Sadie skirt in pink marked down from $59 to $19! I had to buy it. The sales lady also helped me locate the bumper that was originally $99 marked down to $29. What a freaking steal! The bumper is coming from a store in MD and it should be here later on this week. I have been stalking the Sadie set online since they've been on sale for a while but the prices are bit higher on the website that the store. I'm all about buying nice things but I refuse to pay retail for anything!

I'm so excited to get her crib assembled and put her bedding together. Gotta wait 'til May 22 though 'cause we're moving. Now I just need to find a dresser that we can use as a changing table and as storage for all her cute clothes that we've been buying.
