22 Weeks and the Final Countdown

Here's my baby bump at 22 weeks!

Not much as changed as far as the pregnancy goes. My headaches have decreased, sleep is getting better, I haven't had any bouts of morning sickness and I'm starting to feel baby girl move more and more! Our living room is jam packed with boxes of baby stuff as we picked up her nursery furniture this weekend. I can't wait to move and set it all up!

And onto the deployment! We are in the home stretch. Thank god. I have never been so ready for the hubs to come home. I have my to do list all written and plan on getting a lot done this weekend

My list is as follows
1. Wax- very important as a pregnant belly has decreased my shaving abilities.

2. Nails- Im def getting a pedicure and still debating if I'm going to get tips put on. There not a necessity but they sure make me feel pretty

3. Transportation briefing- my husband told me all along that when it came time to move all he had to do was head to the transportation office and sign us up! WRONG! Good thing I talked to one of my good friends who happens to be the captains wife and frg leader. I have to attend a briefing, sign the hubs in, register us on some online site, schedule a counseling session and then we get a move date. I've heard counseling sessions take three weeks to get which is cutting things close since we plan on moving the first week of May. So tomm I go for the briefing.
Also how many have you did a partial dity move compared to a full. I know on the full you can make money but by the time we move I'll be 27 weeks pregnant and useless in regards to lifting things. Any advice would be helpful

4. Cleaning- I plan on deep cleaning the house this weekend. I tool apart out vacuum and washed out all the pieces, I plan on cleaning out the fridge and giving the rest of our house a massive cleaning

5. Spray tan- I have a couple of sessions left from a package I purchased and plan on going this weekend for my final session. That way I'll be nice and tan for the hubs

Hopefully these things will keep m'e busy till the hubs comes home. I'm so ready to hear my phone ring and to get news I can go pick up my husband. But in reality who knows when exactly that will be!

  1. Your belly is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Cute bump! We did a dity move when I was 36 weeks pregnant. I still don't know how we did it. We had help from friends in both locations and my Dad flew to help us with the driving. Good luck! Once it's over there you won't even remember a thing!

  3. Dity moves are not what they are cracked up to be! We only do partial dity now & let the Army pack all the big items. With you being pregnant I would do that- you really don't make as much money as the work you put into it.

  4. I haven't commented in a while but I just had to leave you a little message to tell you that your bump is just PRECIOUS!!! I'm glad your feeling good.
    Your cracking me up with all your self beautifying things your doing. Wow, I feel like such a gross mama. I can't reach my legs or ankles so I only shave like once every week or two. My poor hubs. I don't get waxed either. I should I'm just too lazy. :/

  5. If PCSing was only so easy as going and signing up ha. Everyone is going to give you a different responce to the moving part. We did a dity and I hated every second of it! And on top of it we didn't even get much money out of it. At least not compared to as much as some people had gotten. It really comes down to what you feel comfortable doing.

  6. Cute bump! Yay for the final countdown :)

  7. You look great! So happy for you that your hubby will be home soon.

  8. You're going to look soo cute :)

  9. We always do partial DITY. We just get the stuff in our personal cars weighed. It really is easy to set up. Also, if they don't give you a counseling date early enough, you can sometimes get it bumped up if you pitch a fit. That's what we had to do when we PCSed from Bragg because they wanted to move us AFTER his report date.

  10. You look great! So glad to hear the hubs will be home soon!

  11. so excited for you. I have never heard of going to counceling before a move. I am so excited for you

  12. Hooray for being in the homestretch of the deployment. We are too :-) It's good to see Spring!!! you look great by the way!
