I celebrated my 34th birthday last week and was thinking about when I was a child and being in your 20's seemed old! The 20’s were fun but I have to think my 30’s will be even better, especially since I will be chasing after a child or two. And don’t they say that children keep you young? Or was that they age you really fast? My birthday was low key and quiet, which I enjoyed. I went and had my hair cut and styled and it was the first time my stylist had seen me since getting pregnant. She was so ecstatic…I liked having everyone turn to see what she was fussing about…I felt pretty darn special. And I looked special too, as she always manages to rock out my hair and leaving me looking like a diva. Thanks Brenda!!
As soon as we found out that we were definitely having a boy the top 2 questions we get asked is our nursery theme and if we’ve decided on a name! I can only say that our name list was cut in half and that Hubby and I are still throwing around ideas. And when we finally do get down to THE one, we simply won’t be sharing. We discussed sharing and thought it was nice to have something that was our own to know and admire and we will happily share it on the delivery day. From what I can tell most people feel they have a right to butt in on any name you choose and I think this will keep me from getting rattled or irritated with opinions. In the end the ONLY opinion that matters is our own and I know we will be happy with whatever we choose.
As for a nursery theme, I’ve seen a lot of cute themes but found myself just attracted more to colors than an actual theme. The colors will pretty much look like our blog, blue, white and mocha. Hubby will be putting up some wainscoting in white and I have to find the perfect color of mocha to place on the wall portion above. I believe we have finally found a crib set that we like and need to get around to ordering the crib and a few matching items. Most of the accessories will be in
Had my first pregnancy scare last week! I am use to feeling baby move quite often through the day and I went through one day were I hadn’t felt anything and by the end of the day I was lying in bed in tears about it all. I had a stethoscope and was poking my belly and got nothing. Hubby got the headset and began playing music and still nothing. I didn’t know what to do and so the next morning we thought about heading over to my clinic to see if they could just let me listen to the baby’s heartbeat. I was torn at what to do because part of me felt so silly and the other part was on the verge of totally losing it. It was after reading some thoughtful post for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. I should have known better but thought women were so brave to put their loss out there I had to read and offer my condolences. One post in particular struck me, thus leading to my worry for the day. So before we headed to the clinic, we decided to try music once more. I jostled my belly and spoke to baby and then we played some Elvis Presley…which got him moving. The grin on my face could not have been bigger as I felt my little one poke and prod, actually following the music as we moved it around my belly. It was such a relief. And then Patty let me know it was normal to feel movement and then if I wasn’t lounging around all day, not feel any. Well duh, right? That makes a lot of sense because I hadn’t worked the whole day before and so didn’t have my usual 5 hours on my butt in a chair! I was relieved and even more relieved when later in the day baby gave me three swift, hard kicks! Guess it’s safe to say he already doesn’t like shopping!
So that’s my update and I’m sticking to it. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week and stay tuned...because I will return to posting with pictures soon!
