Random Purchases

So we went shopping yesterday. I decided to try to stock up on some random items that I probably wouldn’t get at my shower. We bought some wall decals, a baby bottle scrubber, extra nipples for the bottles we registered for, Mylicon, infant colic tablets, diaper rash cream, a 4 pack of burp cloths, and 2 outfits. Check out this ADORABLE freaking overall set.

And I nearly died when I found this outfit, it’s like a little mini golfer! So preppy and precious.


I’m happy with our purchases. Next up on our list is more decorative items for the nursery. I need to buy the rug, lamp, and wall hangings to complete our nursery set. We put them on our registry, but I’d rather purchase those ourselves and let people buy us things we need, like the pack n play, bouncer, swing, etc. 🙂

I’m also past 28 weeks, obviously. I can’t believe how quickly time is flying!

Milestones: 3rd trimester, people starting to talk about baby shower, belly button popping out, first rib kicks… time is flying!

Everything Is A-OK

Had check up today. My OB was sick, so I didn’t get our ultrasound. I did get to hear his heartbeat with the doppler though, which I’ve never done before. Usually we just hear it during the ultrasound. He is doing fine, I’m doing fine. His heartbeat was 155 at first, but bumped up to 163 while he was moving around. He kept kicking the wand and it made the worst noise!

Next appointment is scheduled for 9/23/2009. Another month! Hard to believe that after this next appointment our appointments will go to every 2 weeks. Insane how time flies!

My entire stomach is moving around right now, he’s punching me in the ribs. I say punch because apparently he is breech. I guess at my next appointment we will see if he’s flipped around. She seemed more concerned about him being breech than I am, I figure he has plenty of time to flip. Oh well. 😛

Total weight gain/loss: +19 total

Stretch marks? No new ones!

Food cravings: It varies so much.

What I am looking forward to: OB appt on Wednesday! I hope he has turned around so we can get a 3D shot of his face!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep sleep sleep. Oh, and ask people about diapers BEFORE you go to the store. I always knew there was 15 different brands, but actually being there made it super hard to make a decision.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!

Okay, freakout over.

I’m in the double digits people!! And to celebrate, I shall go shopping this weekend, which I do every weekend, but this weekend will be even more special because I’m getting so close! Time to start stocking up on diapers, creams, wipes, and things. My friend started at the beginning of 3rd trimester and she didn’t have to buy any diapers, wipes, creams, or clothes until her daughter was almost a year old! That’s my kind of idea. I heard I need to be careful with the wipes though, and some brands dry out I guess? I need to look into that further. 😉

I’m so incredibly excited, I FINALLY feel like I’m progressing. 3rd trimester will be amazing I hope!
