31 weeks

I'm 31 weeks. I go for my 32 week check-up next week. This was the check-up with Little E that they did not hear a heartbeat. It's so hard to believe that its been 9 months since I had him. In about 9 weeks I'll be going to the same hospital but this time I'll be leaving with my baby girl in my arms. So far everything is going great! She is soooooooo active! We've been going for monthly ultrasounds and dopplers, which have all been perfect. After next week I start going every week for non-stress testing. As of right now she is weighing about 3.5lbs, which is about 78th percentile for her age. That's great considering I was told that I would probably have a very small baby. If she continues at this rate she should be around 8-9 lbs.
I still have so much to do! I have one more trip to VA before she gets here, for a baby shower that my girlfriends are throwing for me! I can't wait to see them all!
Here are the pictures of the nursery and things that I've been making for it!
This is me and Lillie at 31 weeks!

An applique banner that I made for the nursery using my embroidery machine!

 Baby quilt that a made using Bliss charm packs by Bonnie and Camille for Moda!
I know it looks small, but I had so many other things going on that I didn't want to get too involved and not be able to get it done!


The back!

The slipcover that I made for the chair that will be in the nursery and it has a matching ottoman.

My first try at smocking in 13 years! I just adore little smocked dresses!

The fabric was purchased in Montreal when we went back in the fall.

And this is the tree that I painted on the wall behind her crib. I really wanted a tree on her wall, but some of the vinyl ones were more than I wanted to spend. So I went to Hobby Lobby (LOVE that place!) and purchased a set of alphabet stencils and some paint. I stenciled the alphabet and numbers and then free handed the rest. I'm not a painter at all! So I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out, I think its kinda cute!
I've still got more to do! Hopefully more pictures by the end of the weekend!

I'm linking up with Under The Table and Dreaming.

I'm so glad that all is going well with this pregnancy. You look so healthy and happy.
