I was trying to keep posts coming each week or two on the pregnancy, but with the news surrounding the Boston Marathon I’ve been preoccupied keeping tabs on everything going on than working on my blog. I’m relieved to see that in the matter of days the men involved have been killed and captured. I know this is the beginning of many investigations and this is long from over. Plus, the capture doesn’t mean there isn’t grief for the families affected by this horrific event. Yet, I’m happy to see Boston and the surrounding towns get some relief after such a crazy week. They truly are Boston Strong!
So backing up three weeks, here are some highlights from my pregnancy.

My workouts have varied around work and how I feel that day. I’m still cycling on the trainer, doing prenatal yoga, and getting outside for walks when the weather has been nice. I take Coco and then drop her back at the house so I can go for a walk on my own. Although this day, apparently Coco wasn’t into walking so she stayed home.
In baby news my friends Lisa and JuLee threw me a Tiffany themed baby shower. It was so beautiful! We had a brunch and they made the most amazing food!
I’ve been working on getting our bags packed for the hospital. I have my lists about half done and I still plan to post about what we’ve packed when I have it done (or close to done).
Between the baby shower, gifts from friends and family we are feeling pretty close to well stocked in all the baby items we will be needing when we get home. Feeling more prepared has really relieved stress around these final weeks.
The nursery has had quite a bit of progress too! Here are some of the latest updates.
