Nursery Pictures

View as you come in the door of the nursery.

View of the crib (the fabric in the crib will eventually be the crib ruffle.)

Mother Goose Cards hanging above the crib.

Other end of the crib (You can see the closet and the door)

The rocker (with a quilt that I made using my grandma's singer that she got as a wedding gift) and a bookshelf with a few books from my childhood.

The Mother Goose quilt I made over the changing table.

Another view of the changing table with stuff that my sister has given me.

The dresser with nick knack shelves above.

All I have left to do is make the crib ruffle and finish the mother goose cross stitch that I have, which won't be done until after the baby is born because we need birth info.

Overall I am pretty happy with the room and feel very comfortable in it myself. Of course after it is all done, my MIL brings up the fact that it might be overstimulating for the baby. That's what you get when you have a MIL that works for the inner city school district with special needs. Oh well, all I can hope is that the baby and I can enjoy the room together.

How sick am I....

One of my favorite movies... This is what I think of every time the baby moves. How sick am I?

Well, we found out...

It's a boy! Theod.ore Pe.ter (named after SA's grandfather and stepdad). There is no denying that this kid is a boy, so there won't be any surprises later. This kid is big - 1lb 4oz - at 22 weeks. Thank goodness we could talk to my ob right after and know that they won't let him get to terribly big. However, reading on Dr. Goo.gle, there seems to be a lot of error with ultrasound weights, which might be in our favor. She is very emphatic that I not have a c-section because of my weight (and weight loss i.e. extra skin and such) and will do everything she can to get me through natural child birth. The scary thing is that she looks like she is due about the same time as me. So now I am wondering if she will even be around to get me through natural child birth. Why do OB's have to go and get pregnant? LOL, oh well, even if she wasn't due then, she wouldn't necessarily be the one to deliver me anyways. Fun stuff... Guess it could be soooooooooo much worse!

Today we have our 5th Ultrasound...

Our 2nd big one where we can find out gender. Up until recently we have been pretty adamant about not finding out. After this weekend, not so sure. We tried shopping for gender neutral stuff at garage sales and Onc.e Up.on A Chi.ld and it was hard. It's either boy stuff or girl stuff. As SA said, "in the olden days" when no one found out what they were having, it was much easier. So I think we may cave and find out today.

Totally FREAKIN Out....

I read on one of my IF boards or maybe even a blog about the cry technique for the animals. You play a baby crying (like from u.tu.be) and get the animals use to the noise. It did not freak the animals out but it sure freaked me out. Thank goodness I have four more months left of the pregnancy so that I can do the cry technique with me. Please don't get me wrong, this baby is very wanted and very loved but somehow I "forgot" about the crying. Don't ask me how, I was there when BB was born and I was his daycare for his first year, but somehow I "forgot" about the crying. The video literally sent me into a panic. I am going to be 100% (ok with SA too) for this baby's care. I can't send it away when I can't handle the crying anymore, I will be the one waking up in the middle of the night to sooth, comfort, change and feed our baby. I get it and will have to be "ready" whether or not I want to be. But I am truly panicked. How am I going to do this? I didn't get the nickname "Princess" or have personalized plates that said "All About Me" for no reason. Please someone, tell me this is normal, that it is ok for me to be panicked and that it doesn't make me a bad person.

Oh and as a side note, it is freaking SA out that I am freaking out about the crying. Great! Now lets have a household of freaked out people, but the animals are fine. Grreeaaatttt!!!!

I am so angry!!!!

Have any of you heard of D.onna Sim.pson? Go.ogle her... She is attempting to become the worlds fattest mom. Cuurently at 600+lbs, her goal is 1,000!!!!! She has a two children, one of which she had at 500+, and her husband supports her goal 100%. WTF is wrong with these people. What are they going to tell her children when she dies? On top of this, she is doing a radio tour and then hangs up when asked about the irresponsibility of this!?!?! OMG! I am a plus size woman myself and not a small one but would NEVER think about doing this to my family! For Petes sake I had weight loss surgery so that I could be healthy to carry this child!

Nothing new on this front....

The pregnancy is moving along nicely, knock on wood. I like to think I am a positive person, but I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I read so many other blogs where it has and I just can't believe our "luck" so far. Other than migraines which I suffered from before I got pregnant, I really have been healthy and felt "unpregnant." That is until I get a big kick(s) to remind me that I am. I am totally grateful for the lack of events and even feel guilty that we have been this lucky. We got pregnant on our first try and we are 21 weeks with no catastrophes of any sort. I thank God everyday for this chance but still wonder when the shoe is going to drop. All I know is that we have three more weeks and then we are viable. No shoe dropping until then and preferably for 16 weeks after that.

Sorry for the ramblings!
