Have you ladies been thinking about Pediatricians yet?
Have you ladies been thinking about Pediatricians yet?
Gender: Team Blue
Weight gain: Around 20 lbs… it sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?
Stretch marks: Nada.
Belly Button: More and more shallow every day!
Sleep: I peed 7 times last night! I’m so ready to get back to my own bed- FRIDAY IS MOVING DAY!
Movement: Finally! Baby is kicking up a storm and DH can finally feel it too=)
Cravings: Chocolate chocolate chocolate! Trying not to eat too much. I’m still on a fruit kick too so it’s my sweet tooth for sure.
Symptoms: Having a hard time feeling really full- like through my chest if that makes sense. My back has been aching too, but I think that has more to do with this terrible bed that is in our temporary house.
What I’m looking forward to: Seeing my DH”s whole family at Christmas- they’re so excited about the baby and this will be the first “grand baby” so they’re excited to feel my tummy and the baby kick and everything.
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly, WINE, sushi!
Emotions: Pretty under control. A little cranky at times, but otherwise not bad.
Weekly wisdom: Our bodies were designed to hold this life- it might feel like we’re “out of room” at 20-odd-weeks, but our bodies will adapt and be the safe space for our little ones for a while longer =)

Anyone up for sharing their plans/progress for their LO’s nursery? Right now, DH is at home patching a wall and hopefully we’ll paint this week. We’re also planning on getting all new carpet within the next month. A crib bedding set has been ordered, same with a crib and change table. I can’t wait to get this room ready for our little guy.
After that it’s going to be a matter of figuring out what decorations we want up on the wall. DH also has his eyes on a Flor rug.
Speaking of bedding…are you guys doing bumpers? I’ve heard they’re a no-no?
On my way to go do my glucose test. I was so good yesterday and kept the carbs to a minimum (only had granola with yogurt), but then I had hot tea at night and remembered that honey is good for sore throats. Sigh. So I had a spoonful of sugar (honey). Oh well. Crossing my fingers I pass.
Her nursery is going to have grey walls with white border. It’s going to be mix and match black and white prints (damask, toille, stripes, chevron, etc) with bright solid accents.
There has been np painting done yet. Hubby doesn’t see the point and of course I can’t do it. The walls are tan and I’m concerned that it’s going to mess up the whole scheme if they are not changed. What do you think?
I already have a glider (that needs to be painted white and reupholstered), a dresser (needs to be painted white), and a little cubby hole thingy (needs to be spray painted white). I am going to modge podge some printed black and white paper on top of the dresser and change the knobs to either one solid color per drawer or those pretty diamond looking ones.
I already have a crib, but I haven’t seen it in years, so I am not sure if it needs to be repainted or not. She also has a changing table that is good to go the way that it is (already white).
I have started hanging up her clothes, so that i can see what she still needs. it’s kind of hard to tell with them stuffed in drawers. I am anal, so I had to get the dividers with the size (newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, etc) to organize the clothes. Everything is going to be washed later and rehung, but I just need to know how many more sleepers for this month, etc that she needs.
I also have a few things that need to be sewn: I want white ruffle curtains and black patterned black outs. I also want a rainbow tulle bedskirt.
I feel so behind!
We emptied out the room, pretty much and have bought and put together the crib. Painters are coming this Saturday. We ordered curtains and crib skirt and I registered for sheets (No we are not doing bumpers for safety reasons). I bought a wall cubby thing and a print that needs to be framed and we are getting the dresser from DH’s coworker– hopefully this weekend so I can start putting baby clothes in it. Oh and yesterday I ordered the glider. So we don’t need anymore furniture– but I do want to paint a small shelf that I have. It is just waiting for things to come in, arranging and then decorating. I am thining of getting an elephant wall decal for above the crib. The room will be gray and blue– very restoration hardware-ish.
I’m so glad everyone is doing so well!
I’m still taking zofran nearly every day. Other than the nausea/vomiting things are going great here. I’m starting to feel the baby more. It’s weird, but exciting all at the same time. DH still hasn’t felt him yet. Hopefully soon!
So many stories about MILs wanting to help out. I’m so glad that my SIL is pregnant right now too, so she can focus her attention on her! Although, my Mother-In-Law recently went through my baby registry and told me everything was too cheap and there wasn’t enough items! Hmph! Anywho, it kind of makes me wonder what sil is gonna register for.
@jesstagirl We aren’t doing bumpers. Even the mesh ones are a no-no. It’s a SIDS risk because the baby can get wedged between the bumper and mattress and soffocate. Also, all that bedding can prevent good airflow. There’s a few bumper free bedding options out there. We’re registered for this one.
Things are okay here. I’m starting to feel that third trimester slow down as I’m closing the gap here. The past few days I’ve been SO tired and my back is definitely getting achy.
Which leads me to this: My glucose test came back normal (yay!!) but with my iron slightly low (level was 103 where normal is 110). My midwife recommended taking 300 mg of iron daily, 20-30 minutes before eating with vitamin C. She said if my stomach gets upset or if I get constipation then to reduce it down to 100mg/day. I’ve had low iron previously (like really low) and managed to get it back up to normal levels just through dietary changes with more red meat, spinach, and beans. I’m terrified of iron supplements just because of the stories I’ve heard about how rough they are on your digestive system. Anyone have any suggestions or want to commiserate?
And nursery-wise, no progress really. I came up with plans for our master bedroom reno to tide us over while we house hunt (no progress there either, this is not the ideal time of year to house hunt!!), so we’re getting the ball rolling on that. I’m hoping we’ll start the reno in the new year, yay!
Oh and I think we’re going to Bermuda before Christmas for a little babymoon! YAY!!! Okay I had more to talk about than I thought, LOL!
