Remodeling & Checkups

Another prenatal appointment down. My Mom came up Wednesday night so we could leave early and get errands ran too. We spent them morning wandering around Menards getting ideas and prices for remodeling the main bathroom. I was mopping and the vinyl floor ripped and revealed the water damage we suspected was way worse than we realized. Currently half the floor is tore up. We are going to have to replace everything including the subfloor. 

Current debate is my husband wants to put up a surround and I want to tile the surround. I never want to deal with water getting behind the surround again and I loved the tile shower surround we had in our rental apartment when we wer first married. We have leftover flooring from our kitchen project and found a narrow vanity that will give us more floor space. A soaker tub for under $300, and we will have a few more debates discussions on a medicine cabinet. The plastic tiles will come off the rest of the walls. I would like to do shiplap or wainscoting after but agreed to just a coat of paint.

As far as the babies' appointment everything looked good. They moved up from the 20th percentile to the 50th and are each about 1 pound 10 ounces. I passed my glucose screening, which I was expecting to fail. I celebrated with ice cream on the way home. Usually in a twin pregnancy appointments get closer together after 20 weeks, but my doctor said she was comfortable with just scheduling for another 4 weeks and growth scan at the same time. Provided I called her if anything changed and what to be on the lookout for. I am measuring 34-35 weeks in a singleton pregnancy. So it's not my imagination that I am about as big as I was at the end of my other pregnancies and I don't feel so bad about already waddling now. Produce comparison for 25 weeks varies according to website but the popular choices are acorn squash and cauliflower.

Switching topics again - what features would want if you were remodeling a bathroom?


  1. I would do a pre made surround, baker water and tile in bathtub/shower are not easy to keep clean, we replaced with pre-made surround, just wish I would have picked one with less shelves. Aunt Brenda

    1. oh and wish I had bigger vanity!

    2. Oh no. I was hoping the tile would be easier. All the surrounds have so many shelves and nooks and crannies. We are thinking 12x12 tile so they are big and not as much grout to keep up on.
