hi girls! nice to hear such good news!
Tammy- congrats oh the A+ from the docs and a beautiful heart!- and, yes, I feel like we are pg twins! did you do ICSI? sounds like you got a super deal at burlington! I like the modern style furniture as well, however, to be frugal, we're going to use my mom's 76 year old crib -it's pretty cool- simple, small, and on wheels, so I can move it around (with a new mattress, bumper etc- of course!) and for the changing table, we'll use a victorian era chest of drawers with changing pad on top. My family is chocked full of really old stuff, so it seems silly to get new, when we'll have enough other expenses (perhaps I'll give everything a paint job)
oh speaking of paints.. yes there are low VOC paints that we pg ladies can use - i've painted a bit with latex based paint, and while not a great idea, it's just been here and there touchups where we banged into the walls while working on the space.
dh and i painted the room a really intense yellow a couple of years ago as a guest/future little person room. we're not doing it up like a nursery, just making it a bit more baby friendly - mobiles, old school Pooh, and Beatrix Potter, perhaps a small mural? who knows...
Jomae- we did ICSI and are having an 'outdoor plumbing" baby!
I think there is a 50/50 chance in just about any case- do you have a feeling? any premonitions? at about 4 weeks, I had a very vibrant dream that I was having a boy (it was wild, and from then on, I kind of started to get used to the idea that it may not be a girl like i'd always imagined)
actually, I think Campbell would do marvelously for a little girl as well- you could call her Bell for short.
We had 1 name picked out regardless of gender, it was going to make it into our bubs name - an old family last name, Pulman - sort of weird, but I like it- my mom is a genealogist for our family and history is very important to me, so i'm going through our family names -some 1st, mostly last- to find just the one for our bean
anyhow- off to the farmer's market-mmm fresh stuff!
bedrest gals- must you stay at home all of the time, or can you get out at all? is it really "stay in bed 24/7"?
