So I fell off the face of the earth for a while lol =] glad to see everyone is doing well. I had my shower on Nov 16th, it went quite well. Unfortunately we only got 2 items off our registry and everything else was clothing. So we still have about $400+ to spend on things that we feel we absolutely need now. We already decided to postpone/do without many items to cut costs. My Dh’s family is doing a christmas party/mini shower this saturday but nothing has come off the registries so I am guess it will be primarily clothing again. Not to complain I love the clothes…but we really need some actual baby items.Owell we will simply buy them ourselves, the sad thing is even with all these clothes coming in I still don’t feel she truly has enough clothing. =/. On a happy note our nursery is finished even the monitor (we just got a wifi camera instead of one of the outrageous monitors) We can pull it up on our phones easily plus it has password protection and it has two way sound color video and night vision I am EXTREMELY pleased with it! And it only cost $50 yay!
I realized I never posted pictures of the nursing pillow with a ruler for sizing…and I still haven’t even taken those pictures! Pityful!
So I still haven’t had any leaking either and boobs have grown but I haven’t had to go up a bra size…just in the past few weeks I’m feeling a bigger bra would be much more pleasant but it’s not required yet lol.
the bee doesn’t like my trying to go back and forth and replying to everyone sooo I’m just going from memory and linking any usernames sorry =[
sarap LOVE those pics!!!
lyndzo what a cute little face! I want another US so bad…i might get one but who knows.
My mom is convinced this baby is coming in December, because of how I am carrying (way low for weeks now) but I really dont think thats a good indicator lol. I think she is just getting impatient I try to remind her we don’t want a premie baby but she’s always been sure I was farther along than I was IDK why.
Let’s see I’m freaking out a bit because at my last appointment last thursday my bump was measuring at 37 weeks!!! AH! That’s 4 weeks ahead…I’m afraid she’s getting giant in there, I passed my glucose test when I had it. I’m only up 5 total lbs the whole pregnancy. Midwife didn’t seem extremely concerned but she did say she did not want me going past my due date at all. I have also noticed a gradual decrease in movement I guess I shouldn’t be too worried but it does worry me. It’s been over the course of several weeks which I guess she has taken a big growth spurt lately. I quit doing my kick counts bc everytime in the past I would get 10 kicks in under 5 minutes almost everytime so I was like well I think we’re good. Now it’s more like 10 kicks in 30-40 minutes should I be concerned? Midwife wasn’t but I still feel worried about it. She was just so outrageously active for quite a while anytime I was still she was going nutty in there but now it’s I guess less predictable? IDK they are very strong movements though.
Uhm on a happy note I think we finally named this little lady…we have decided not to tell anyone because we really don’t want their opinions bc we don’t think our families will like the name much but we do. But I’m excited about it so I can blab on the bee!! =]
i think we decided on Bailey Grace, Bailey was not one of the names we had it narrowed down to at all. We’ve had it between Allison and Leah for months and we just couldn’t settle on one..so the other day I was like well let’s pick middle names for those two and go from there…and we spent hours and only came up with Bailey every other middle name we came up with we were both like but I like Bailey better than that…so we decided Bailey was the middle name…
A few days later I was like ok we have a middle name…which first name and at the same time we were kind of like…if we like Bailey that much…why not just use it and Grace came very quickly after that and for the first time it just feels right so I think we have it =] although who knows we may take one look at her and go with someone else but I’m really feeling this is it =]
Well that was longer than expected…oh my goodness ladies we’re getting SOO CLOSE!!!
