Just wanted to update about a book I mentioned earlier-
I had said I wasn’t loving “The Baby Whisperer” bc I found it overwhelming with schedules/charts that wouldn’t be applicable for awhile, but that was actually only the first half of the book. The second half was filled with other really interesting things like about disciplining and potty-training, etc. Seems like that is all forever away, but it’s helpful b/c I’m sure we won’t have much time for reading/research after the babies are here, and it will be good to already know *where* to look for answers to questions once it’s time to potty-train, etc. (actually, the book had some really interesting stuff like how you can start even long before they’re a year old, and how – I dont remember the exact numbers – but in the US the average kid isn’t potty trained til like 2.5 years, but in the rest of the world it’s 18 months!)
Hi ladies! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve noticed in the past week or so that even though my uterus is supposed to be around my belly button, I can feel kicks about an inch or two above it. Is this an “echo” of what LO is doing below? Anyone else feel the same kind of thing?
I had a little “holy shit!” moment this weekend when I noticed my belly button is now almost flat! I’m used to having very much an innie! Anybody else no longer recognizing their belly button?!?
Hope everyone had a great weekend! We didn’t do much in the way of baby prep stuff like we have been the past few weekends, but we did order crib bedding! I’m so excited for it to arrive. My husband was ready to kill me since I have known forever what I wanted to get but wouldn’t pull the trigger before I did even more “research” lol. He’s like just press the order button already!

I am jealous of everyone feeling LO kicking. I am 20w3d and still nothing. Maybe I am confusing stomach growls or other stuff for flutters. Who knows. At our sono baby was moving so much but I still dont feel her. Doctor said I should within a week or 2. I can’t wait!
I am finally looking into ideas for her nursery also. I don’t want a theme or character so I have been looking at Etsy. Everything is so expensive though! I plan on doing mint/aqua and corals/pinks (can’t decide). Hopefully we find something soon.
Hope pe everyone is doing well 🙂
We spent the entire day at Buy Buy Baby and Ikea (they are both over an hour away from us), and have narrowed down our stroller choices to either the City Mini GT or the new Bob Motion which is an all-terrain designed for the Britax B-Safe carseat. We went in to test out the Britax B-Ready because I really wanted to take advantage of the amazing Amazon sale, but it is just too heavy and bulky for me to lift into our small SUV and the second seat option is not something we care that much about (plus, that second seat is in a really strange spot). The two strollers we’re looking at are more than I intended to spend, but I like that they will work well whether we’re at the mall or on one of the many bumpy trails or roads in our area.
We also got the dresser for the nursery, Hemnes 8-drawer from Ikea. I think at least one other March mama is using it too. So now we have the crib and dresser/changing table…just need to get the room painted so we can fill it up!
Baby girl has been very active lately. The COOLEST thing was when I pushed in a rhythm on a particular spot on my belly, and after a few times she punched back in that very same spot! Maybe just a fluke, but the thought of her interacting with me was so, so cool.
