pregnancy woes and painting

So I had my 6 month checkup today, with the gluecose test. That test always makes me feel ucky. But I did it, and I am on the borderline, but they are letting it go anyway. Yea!!!! I can still enjoy my occasional sweet, or more than occasional. Baby is doing good, his growth has slown down a bit, so the dr is keeping a close eye on him. but so far pretty good. And I figured I don't have any pics of me pregnant with my other kids so I thought I should start taking some pics :) I know im not that big yet, I have what I call a spine hugger, I am totally uncomfortable because he is hugging my spine all the time. And there is not all that much room to eat! I take 4 bites of dinner and I get full, sometimes I wish my belly would just pop out so I could eat, lol.

 Another lovely aspect of my pregancy is I needed to get reading glasses. The dr is sure my perfect eyesight will come back after baby is born, hopefully! we shall see.
 Ok, here are my ugly house pics, this is the poop brown color that was in my laundry room and bathroom, pretty gross huh.
 laundry room
 bathroom. I know they are out of order, I am brain dead today, the after pics of bathroom and laundry room are down below.
 the boys painting their room. Needless to say, they did one wall, and I finished the room! Crazy boys.
 Jason decided he wanted to help the big brothers.
 After :) Not too bad huh. the blue is so relaxing. This is zachs little corner.
 and this is joeys corner. thank goodness I have a picture, cause it has never been this clean again.

 My kitchen, I painted it the same yellow as my old house hoping I will like the kitchen a bit more if the color was the same.
 Bathroom after pics. so clean and fresh!!!
 laundry room, I had to leave the poop brown color because I couldn't move out the washer and dryer, in fact to get them in we had to take out a door frame, so I painted the top half and added the border, it helps soooooo much!
 And finally alli's room, yes the green is as bright as it looks, maybe even brighter! It is such a happy room.
So far that is it, I still have to paint abby and jasons room, my room the family room, the movie room, and the living room, plus 2 more bathrooms. but all that overwhelmes me, so one at a time right. if anyone feels like painting, feel free to give me a call, lol. I take any and all volunteers, well except teenage boys.

No fun doing it alone :( miss u too. Can't hardly believe its almost november, I am sooooo on the countdown! My back it killing and I have been getting charlie horses in my legs all night, the thrills of pregnancy :)
