Hi girls -
Hope all is well. I must admit, that I have been lucky and have been off work since my 1st scan. I can't imagine working f/t with all the tiredness and everything that comes with being pregnant! Thinking of all of you!!
Our hospital tour went well. There were probably about 40 couples there! We were surprised at the turnout...Next, I have to schedule an appt with the midwife and again with the doctor who will do the c-section and get everything squared away.
chriss -- our nursery is really just 1/3 of our bedroom -- so we didn't do anything special with colors or themes. The walls are a very pale blue - I think the color was called mist or something like that when we originally painted it - very serene...We've also put up a wallpaper border of hydrangeas and we bought a changing table and crib in a sage green on ebay from a couple who didn't live too far away from us. Right now, we only have the changing table set up with a cradle we bought (also 2nd hand), which is white - along with the wardrobe, bookcases and rocking chair, which are also white -- As far as bedding goes, I only have sheets for the cradle and I've made a blanket and some other accessories -- We are waiting to see what we are having to buy anything for the crib. I still want to put something up on the walls and get a nice lamp, a mobile or two, you know, the fun stuff --
At some point, the baby will have its own room, but that will take some time, as DH will have to relocate his home office and we just aren't ready for that right now!
What are you guys thinking about? Are you going to find out what you are having? That must be coming up pretty soon, I would guess! Hey, how is your knitting going by the way? If you want any easy patterns for hats or booties, or this blanket I made, let me know!!
In just a few weeks, you will probably start feeling movement - that is really, really the best.
Sabi - enjoy your scan on Monday! When was your last one? I am sure your babies have grown by leaps and bounds!
Anyway, I am off to bed. Am having the hardest time sleeping past 5 or 6am, which wouldn't be so bad if I weren't already such a night owl! I almost always have to nap in the afternoons, which always feels great, but I still have so much to do here in the next 7 weeks!
Looking forward to reading more updates. I like hearing how things are going with all of you. Still thrilled that this has worked for all of us. I had pretty much given up hope that I'd ever get my BFP, and that is exactly when it happened.
