I had asked Paul the night before how long he thought it would take my dad to paint (I was trying to plan the day, woudl I have time to run some errands or would it be an all day thing). Paul said "If I was doing it , it would take a week. But I guess you dad figures he can get it all done in a day since that's all he took off from work." In actuality it took about 3 hours, arrival to clean-up. The picture below is the after shot. Yes, it is a fake shot. But Paul complained that I didn't have any pictures of the daddy-to-be on the blog, so here he is pretending to paint her room.

Week 1 Finishing the last of the hormone shots
Week 2 Embryo transfer
week 3 Waiting to take a blood pregnancy test at the doctor's and debating about just buying one at the pharmacy and doing it early
Week 4 Pregnancy test with the doctor twice in 3 days for confirmation
Week 5 Trying not to tell everyone and their dog (and not really succeeding). Starting feeling nauseous all day long.
Week 6 First sonogram and heard the heartbeat. I also had some bleeding after the sonogram, so had my first freak out. Doctor told me to take it easy the rest of the day, hubby Paul put me on bed rest for the week. Also got wonderful medication for the all day morning sickness.
Week 7 Because of the bleeding, had an earlier exam just to make sure everything was still fine. Second sonogram, love the new 3D machines.
Week 8 Feeling much better with the meds, but extremely tired all the time. Paul teases me about going to bed so early.
Week 9 Last appointment with the fertility clinic. No more oral hormone meds.
Week 10 Make appointment with regular OB, find out I'll probably only have 2 more sonograms. I've already had 3 and now they are cutting me off?
Week 11 Counting the days to the doctor appointment.
Week 12 First appointment with the OB. She did do a sonogram (her standard procedure for 12 weeks). I don't think the front desk knew what to do with me since I had already been seeing a doctor.
Week 13 Pants don't fit and haven't for a while. Of course most people don't notice my expanding waist.
Week 14 Paul's birthday, having a baby is a pretty good present don't you think?
Week 15 Researching genetic testing.
Week 16 Doctor's visit. My mom went with me and talked the doctor into doing a sonogram for her. Nurse thinks it might be a boy.
Week 17 Paul calls me several times at work to gush about having a son.
Week 18 Doctor's appointment, official sonogram with the tech. Find out it's a girl not a boy. Paul accuses me of lying to him.
Week 19 The spoiling of this baby begins as there are Christmas presents from everyone.
Week 20 Paul keeps asking me if I can feel her kicking. I've been saying yes for a couple of weeks, but now I know it is what I'm feeling.
Less than 20 weeks to go and I am sure they will go by even faster than the first 20.

Please note that up until a couple of days ago this closet was full of other stuff like games and toys for bigger kids. When the neices and nephews come over the first place they go is MIC's room (or the closet more accurately) where all the toys were kept. I've moved the toys to the hall closet and the games to the office closet. The nursery also housed 20 large, wrapped boxes (the size of a computer paper box). These boxes contain stuff we've bought, found, or been given for MIC in the last 2 years. Those boxes are now in the guest room closet and our master bedroom closet. There's just a few more items in the room to clear out and then we can really start to make it a nursery.
