A little updatey date date date

Jon has been busy this weekend building a closet for the nursery (see above photo). The closet will open from the nursery, but it extends into our hallway/loft area.

I've been busy growing la bebe. I feel like this week I have considerably popped out, kind of crazy!
I've had crazy weight gain the past four-six weeks, were talking two plus pounds a week. I'm trying to watch what I eat more, and walk everyday, but I feel my self control has gone out the window!!! Ahh well.

Lastly, a huge congratulations to my friend Laine who just had her third baby, Kane on Saturday!! I can't wait to meet the little guy!

God bless-

Weekend Recap

Well, the hubby is finally home from a conference in Oklahoma City. I am SO glad to have him back!  Whenever he's gone on a business trip, I jam pack my days full of stuff so it goes by faster.  This time was no exception, including  a friend spending the night, dinner and shopping with Mariam, grocery shopping, etc.  Yesterday, I spent tailgating and going to the MSU vs. ND game.  My boss gave tickets out to all full-time employees, and we had sweeet seats.  They were on the 50 yard line, in the SHADE (yeahh!), and our seats actually had backs.  I waited the whole game for a darn sno cone and when the guy finally came past our row and I got one, it ended up being a BLOCK of ice that was impossible to eat. So disappointing :) But overall, great game.

Gosh, there's so much more going on but my head hurts and I think it's time for a Sunday afternoon nap.  Have a relaxing Sabbath!

P.S. Thanks to everyone for their caffeine advice.  I am one of those women that was addicted to  coffee every morning- so I think I'm going to take the "everything in moderation" approach.

To caffeine or not to caffeine?

OK, question for all the ladies out there who are currently preggo or have been:

Did you drink caffeine while pregnant/breast feeding? If so, how much? What about diet pop?

I gave caffeine up completely during the first trimester, but I hear it is okay in moderate amounts.

I seriously want your input!

Welp, lots going on. Had our 16th week doctor's appt- everything looks good with me and baby. Jon was a little upset because he has to get his blood drawn to determine his blood type (if it's O+ could be a potential blood disease for the baby). He was complaining away until I asked him if he wanted to compare that with what I have to look forward to. The man passes out every single time, so were hoping our family doctor has this information already.

We also got into a car accident on the way to the doctor's appt. We were at a red light and some dumb kid literally puts his car in reverse, steps on the gas, and backs into us! I jumped out of the car, went up to him and was like, "dude, did you not even look or see us?" I was seriously mad. Anyways, not a big deal, we need to get our bumper replaced, but thankfully a guy in our small group can help us out with that.

Saturday we slept in, Jon re-caulked our old crappy tub, he headed to work and I headed to a co-workers wedding (which was so fun and so absolutely nice). We spent the rest of the weekend watching Baby Mama with David and Erin, planning our baby-moon, and running errands.

Speaking of running, I need to get to work. See ya later!

I caved, I caved. No more au natural' pregnancy for me. I am now on dramamine til I can kick this nauseous. I spent all day on the couch yesterday super sick- and decided- NO MORE!!!

Update from the Ackermans:
-We are going to be having another NIECE!!! John and Kym had their ultrasound yesterday- yay!!!!
-We spent an awesome labor day weekend at the Ackermans beach bungalow Friday-Monday. We went to Hestons, ate at Rememak's (YUM), watched a concert on the beach, hung out with family, played lawn games, walked the pier in St. Joe with my family and swam in Lake Michigan. It was relaxing and great! My family was able to come up on Monday and it was cool to see everyone all together!
-We've been watching both the DNC and RNC speeches- Jon has his mind made up and I am still deciding. Always good to be informed though.
-For the first time ever (Truly), I am really looking forward to the fall. Being hot makes me feel pukey, and I just can't wait for the crisper weather. Not to mention, the leaves, Uncle John's Cider Mill, donuts, and fall decorations!
-On the preggo front- things are looking up (hip hip hooray!). I still am getting nauseous (puked up the breakfast the other day), but it is much more do-able for me. I came home from work after my puking episode the other day and had TWO packages in the mail. I mean, one, one is awesome, but two!! My sister had sent me some maternity clothes from motherhood maternity and some cocoa butter!! And my dearest friends the Heaps sent us a little baby package. THANK YOU GUYS, your timing just really made my day.

Well, that's whats new from our front. Were heading to a bonfire tonight with some couples in our small group and heading home tomorrow night to see Meg and Seth who are home for a family wedding. Happy happy Friday!
