So, I've been buying a few baby things lately. It's like once I started I can't stop. Not to mention the Target discount doesn't help.
I think it started because we just finished our registry. By "we" I mean "I," Mike proved a little too overzealous for the scanner gun, and I ended up deleting more than we kept. "No dear, we don't need 13 different types of wipes, but thanks for suggesting it." We now have a registry at Babies 'r' Us and Target, plus one at kellyscloset.com (password is 1234 if you want to check it out) for cloth diaper stuff.
I bought this cute outfit for Mike, it says "Chicks dig scars." If you know him at all, you'll get it.
They also had a serious baby sale at Target. I scored a nice, rocking, wooden bassinet for almost 50 bucks off.
I also got a Graco Snugride car seat and Snap-n-go stroller combination for 75% off (plus discount). I'd kind of been stalking it since we saw it get marked down about a month ago. I didn't think they'd have one left by the time it went to 75% off. It's not the carseat we want, but we'll either sell it for a little bit of money to someone who needs it or give it to my parents to use. The Snap-n-Go stroller goes for $70 at BRU. I couldn't pass the deal up, I got the carseat and the stroller for less than half of what the snap-n-go goes for. Sweet Deal.
This isn't the pattern we got, but it is the set.
I know I've been slacking on the weekly poll, and I promise the next post will be nursery dedicated. :)
Here's me at 21 weeks
How far along? 21 weeks
Weight gain/loss: Last appointment I was up 3, so still down 2 overall, but I think in the last two weeks I've definitely gained. Please see the cravings section and you'll understand why.
Maternity clothes? All the time, and I did squeeze myself into a bikini this weekend. I decided after trying on a few maternity bathing suits that I would be more comfortable bearing the belly.
Stretch marks? Not yet!
Sleep? The peeing is getting really annoying, but otherwise I'm sleeping fine. I do enjoy a good nap, too.
Best moment this week? Shopping!!
Food cravings: Ice cream - like a turn around and go back to Dairy Queen craving. It's insane. (and a little embarrassing)
Gender: Boy! We are most likely going to go with Ezra as the name, too. We've both loved that name for a while.
Belly button in or out? In, and my hot-poker belly button pain seems to have passed. For about 2 weeks I couldn't laugh because it hurt my belly button. Very strange.
Movement? Feels like he's jumping around a lot. Feels like gas/digestion, but much more frequent and noticeable. Usually he's active when I'm not. I'm sure this trend will continue through college.
What I miss? Nothing
What I'm looking forward to: Outside kicks. I can't wait for M to feel him.
Weekly wisdom: Today I am pregnant, and I love my baby.
Milestones: Half baked!!
