New Home!

By Cedar | March 28, 2011

The past week has been a bit of a whirlwind for me. It has been both stressful and rewarding.

In my last post I mentioned my itchy legs. Well, that mild irritating itch turned into a full blown rash starting at my ankles and going just past my knees. I ended up going into the doctor Friday to have it checked where they pretty much told me that it probably wouldn’t disappear until after baby arrives. She did however prescribe me some mild topical cream to help relieve the pain. After a few days worth of applications I am happy to report that it appears to be fading, and the itch isn’t nearly as bad as it was last week. I really am not looking forward to have hairy legs until after the baby is born, so hopefully it keeps improving!

On top of that small nuisance, we have been driving around non stop looking at apartments. Toward the end of last week we viewed a condo for rent that we fell in love with, and we are going in to sign the lease for it this afternoon. It is bigger, more luxurious, and more beautiful than any of the homes we have lived in to date. Most importantly it has all the amenities that we wanted and more. We are thrilled and excited to get into our new home, though the list of things to do before baby arrives just grew exponentially!

I started packing this morning even though it may be another week or two until we are able to move in. I am trying to get as much done now as I can. In two very short weeks I will be considered full term, and though I doubt she will come that early, baby really could come at any time!

If things continue to be a bit slow around here for the coming weeks, I apologize. I really am beyond busy, but I do still plan on getting a few posts in a week.

    I can’t wait to see your new home AND your new baby. Hopefully the home and set up will happen BEFORE the baby, but as you said, they have their own time table. Congratulations. We have been considering a location change as well, but are still in the planning stages.

    You will love renting a condo! That’s what we did. It is only six years old and is just so nice. Have a smooth move!

    My comment didn’t seem to make it through cyberspace. You sure are going to have a busy time of it. Hope all goes well!
