Pregnancy Update: 19 Weeks

13 Nov

Pictures taken in our newly painted nursery! (The first picture is the most accurate representation of the color.) Here’s what the room looked like before:

It’s SO much brighter in there! I love it. We ended up going with this color paint:

It took 3 coats of paint + primer (in one) to cover that aqua color but it’s finally done. In addition to that project, Travis and my dad also replaced the window in that room. While they did that, my mom and I were busy sewing curtains (which I’ll post about once they’re hung up) and shopping for a nursery glider. We had success with both (though the curtains were a close call – luckily, I have an amazing dad who was able to fix my sewing machine after we had almost given up!) Here’s the glider recliner we ended up ordering:


We ordered it in a solid charcoal gray. I had been planning to get a glider with an ottoman because I honestly didn’t know they made glider recliners. But since our nursery is on the smaller side, I thought it’d be nice to not have an ottoman to always get in the way. This chair is also super comfortable and good for tall people (since the back is taller than a lot of other gliders.) It’ll take about 6 weeks to come in so I’m glad we ordered it early! (If you’re in the Denver area, Firefly Furnishings has lots of VERY CUTE stuff.)

On top of all that, we went to Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam show on Saturday night. It was the first time I had been to a Cirque show and it definitely lives up to the hype. It was so impressive what some people can do! It was also very weird and random, but I’m glad we went.


Last week was my best showing workout-wise since I got pregnant:

Su: 1.15 mile walk, 15 minute strength

M: 15 minutes light strength + stretching

T: 1.97 mile walk/jog

W: 1.7 mile walk

Th: 1.15 mile walk

Sa: 1.15 mile walk

Too bad I cancelled it out with unhealthy dinners. ;(


Cravings: I’m loving cheese in, on and with everything, and froyo sounds amazing but overall, my cravings are back to normal

Weight gain: 12 lbs total

Baby-related activities: Painted the nursery, sewed curtains and signed up for childbirth/breastfeeding/newborn care classes

Baby-related purchases: Crib, mattress, curtain + crib skirt fabric, changing table, futon for office (kind of baby-related)


Last but not least, my wonderful sister-in-law sent a giant bag of maternity clothes with my parents so now I have lots of things to wear! (The red sweater above is one of the things she loaned me). Thanks Jen!

    Great progress on the nursery, love the color!

    That is so true about Cirque shows, they are all a little weird, but amazing 🙂
