Apparently I'm gonna give birth to a toddler...

...according to my latest doctors appointment yesterday. I'm 32 weeks and my belly measurement has gone from 31cm to 36cm in just two weeks time. Add to that a 4 pound weight gain (yikes) and it's official -- Quinn will be entering into this world in the midst of his terrible two's!

I posted about this in my online "due date club" of girls I chat with, and here are some of the funny responses I got:

Oh my gracious! The twos are easy... it's the threes that kill you
true, true, and when they hit're basically dead...
well I'll have my fingers crossed he comes out potty trained too then!!!

This made me really laugh. You will be fine girly. At least you know your woman parts are safe:) (referring to the fact that I'm having a c-section)

At any rate, the doctor is pleased and says things could not be more perfect. How wonderful it is to hear him say that! Only 52 more days to go (I really cannot wait to meet this little-big guy)!

On another note... I was hoping to get some scrapping done today, but last weekend our hot water tank busted and we had water all over our basement. For the most part it has almost all dried -- but not quite -- and with the recent humidity added on top of an already damp basement, it's kinda getting stinky down here. We've got the de-humidifiers running full blast and hubby is coming home this weekend and gonna do some more clean-up. So my scrappy time is just gonna have to wait a few more days.

What are your plans for the weekend? I know for my American friends it's Memorial Day weekend. Got anything special going on? We're hitting up some yard sales tomorrow to get some more goodies for Quinn. Here is a pic of just some of the recent deals we've gotten on toys (all from $1-$3 each)!!! Do you like to go to yard sales? What kind of treasures do you look for?

Full of mojo in a stinky studio so I cannot scrap,


  1. I LOVE yard sales!! I have 4 to go to this afternoon!!!

  2. You always crack me up! I am picturing the delivery room now, with your newly birthed toddler standing there!

    I am big fan of the yard sales! I collect cobalt blue glass, vintage jewelry, old books I can use for papercrafting....

  3. Big babies are the best! :) Love me a good yard sale!

  4. Hi Catherine,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. It was really nice to hear from you. Now I know I'm only about 30 weeks too late, but...CONGRATULATIONS !!! It's obviously been a while, and I am just so happy for you and your DH to be expecting !!! Sounds like all is progressing well, and you're on the downhill run ! I hope the rest of the pregnancy is smooth sailing, and I look forward to the good news of your DS's birth. Take care of yourself, and make the most of your free time while you can !!! Cheers x
