Baby Size: A mango (one website said that the baby currently looks like a mango dipped in cheese – not a cute picture, not cute at all)
Countdown to Baby: 21 weeks
Symptoms: Still with the lower back pain and my balance is starting to get a little questionable
Cravings: Still Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans…also pretzels with peanut butter (thanks, Caroline!) and/or NUTELLA
Yes, this even happened…
Weight Gain: 8 lbs. – which probably means 15 or so via MY scale (yikes)
Related Purchases: Let’s see…other than the purchases over the weekend, we bought a print to frame for the nursery from this Etsy shop, a $2.50 tin from Target, and a toy, 2 bibs, and a onesie from Angels and Rascals (a local kids’ consignment shop). Also, we were given a crib mattress, a huge bin of baby toys, about 90 size 1 diapers, and a cute little outfit from Mom and Dad. We are so blessed and this baby is soooo loved already ♥
Sadly, the Charleston Repeats event was a Bust with a capital B for the Trottiers. Not because there wasn’t anything to choose from. I mean, look at this madness (from their Facebook page)…
And that was just some of the toys. It was utter chaos for these parents to-be. There were 1 million big-bellied women filled with angst and anxiety bearing double the amount of hormones. It was scary business. We felt incompetent, overwhelmed, insecure, and ugly. Yes, I said ugly. It just wasn’t for us – plain and simple. 2 more consignment events to go this month, YIKES!
Fear of the Week: 1 more week until our next appointment; I’m still not feeling any movement from this little nugget
Relief of the Week: 1 more week until our next appointment, a week and a half until we starting registering (yes, this is now more of a relief than a fear – yippee!)
Randomness: We have started MISSION: FIND CHILD CARE. Hands down, this has been the least fun part of the “we’re having a baby” process thus far. Gross.
Scott’s Quote of the Week: It’s beer-related, of course…
#1: Scott – “Soooo….when does the secondary beer closet need to become the baby’s closet?”
#2: Sarah – “Um soonish, as it IS in the baby’s room. My condolences.” Don’t worry – we’ve got plenty of closets, love!
Cheers to the beautiful weather, nationwide! Our forecast is out of this world!!!
p.s. A pedi’s in the works with Mom and Gram this weekend – yay!
p.s.s. Don’t worry, picture updates of the nursery are coming soon!!!
