@wifegoodman: so this might be a really stupid question, but I was looking at the crib you said you’re getting (you did say the Nurseryworks Uptown, right?) – gorgeous, btw! – but I was wondering if the mattress has adjustable levels?  I am wondering because the crib I am currently obsessed with is this one: http://www.franklinandben.com/products/mason-4-in-1-convertible-crib/ and DH pointed out to me that the mattress looked really low, and I have enough back issues as it is and so we got concerned that bending over to put the baby in and out of the crib might be more difficult.  I plan to go look in person once we get our whole move settled and whatnot, but it seemed from the pics that the Uptown crib had a similarly placed low mattress, so was just curious if you had any thoughts…. random question, I know =)

@katlovesjames:  sooo sorry you are still struggling with this, but glad to hear that your LO’s heartbeat is going strong and he/she seems to be doing well in there!

I guess I am an odd ball. I dont plan on getting a crib. I figure (and with my sister’s advice) that a  pack and play would work.  The pack and play has a bassinet that is adjustable levels, it also has a little attachment for newborn sleeping. Am I insane? Are there reasons to choose to have a crib?

this is the one I am looking at http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11959537

@mojoh:  I am sorry that you’re feeling so shitty still! I have def cried a couple of times staring down food and knowing that eating it was going to be torture!

@katlovesjames:  Thanks for the new thread!

I am going on a daycare waitlist now for daycare in February of next year, I think! The only problem is that you have to put a month’s deposit down to go on the waitlist, and a month is $1200! So that will be a bit of a squeeze right after the holidays. It’s an expensive daycare but it’s the nicest one in the city, it has webcams to watch the baby on all day long, and it happens to be right across from my work so I can still breastfeed easily! I have a really flexible workplace so I will def not go back full time right away.

Also, our nursery is totally going to be grey and yellow! Steel grey and a light yellow. This is my inspiration pic:

My NT scan went fine. Not what I expected, but fine. 

First of all, baby was not cooperating with me. Before leaving I told baby that they better show me their goods, and this little one would NOT move. Haha. The specialist was pressing on my stomach to get the baby to turn over so that he could look at the neck, and 20 minutes later, baby finally did and the specialist turned off the machine because he ha already done the other things. My heart sank.

Baby! Why did you do this to me? Lol. And I only got two pictures. 

But it was amazing to see the baby and know that everything is alright, and that I have such a low chance of having problems. Baby’s heart was 161!

@katlovesjames:  thank you for doing that list dear! and thanks for stopping in. i hope all things go well. continue to update us when you can :)  

@Mrs.JA:  hi! the crib you linked to is LOVELY. i love the tone of it. were trying to get a crib that we can put in the middle of the room so im avoiding the taller backs but i loooove that soft color. oh my. it is VERY low tho. im trying to make sure our crib has adjustable levels too :) as for the uptown crib, it has 3 adjustable mattress levels!

@MsKeee:  i have that nursery pinned as well. it is SO amazing. i spent forever trying to find more details and sources for the things she found, lol. i love how the crib and shelves fit so snug!

@Mrs-Sunflower:  it took forever to get the measurements of our baby too! he was moving SO much though. basically showed us everything and wouldnt rest long enough for the lady to snap a pic of the neck. she had me moving from left to right and was pushing around. so happy that you got to see little one moving around though!

@Mrs.JA:  I love the drawer at the bottom of the crib. So classy! And convenient for storing possibly toys. Haha

@wifegoodman:  Love that crib! But I’m going to wait a bit to become obsessed with nurseries. Of course, I want to decorate the room, but I’m a bit overwhelmed. Once I pick a theme or colors I will go crazy! I would love to do an under the sea theme or winnie the pooh for a boy or alice in wonderland for a girl.

@Mrs-Sunflower:  i am such a planner and since im a SAHW i have a lot of time on my hands during the day. lol. there are so many options and i want to explore them ALL. ridiculously obsessed. i think overall im just going to go with a white airy calm room with whites tan beiges. that way i can incorporate any pop of color where i want, the white ceramic elephant end table i love, the white rocker, the super light tan striped walls, rope baskets & rope clock etc! i love the alice in wonderland themed idea! not common!

@Mrs.JA:  (am on vacation so posting from my phone and it wouldn’t let me pm you) but want to hear something crazy? Was on facebook on my phone and a wicked cute photo of a couple in front of their tree with a baby announcement tag on hr waist was on my newsfeed! My friend who just had a baby commented on it and I clicked on the adorable photo to get a closer look… And it said she changed her cover photo- to my surprise I KNEW i had seen the cover photo with the sandals!! talk about two degrees of separation! Liz is my college friend/sorority sister from Georgia Tech :)

wroting from my phone takes Forever but I’ll be back Tuesday (family Chrismas in New England)… Wife goodman there is a land of nod on north ave in Chicago if there isn’t one by your home :) will be back soon!
