So it has begun! We are still pretty much pinching ourselves daily. This weekend we tried to let it soak it that we are having a baby. Still not sunk in yet. Once we hear the heartbeat Im sure that will change. So I am 5 weeks along this week.
No morning sickness yet. Just very tired. I caught a cold too. I think that is pretty normal since my body is working like double overtime producing so many cells. Im drinking LOTS of OJ to try and kick this cold. Staying away from the meds of course. Getting as much rest as I can. It's so hard to actually have to listen to my body now when it's tired instead of just pushing through to get things done. It's so nice to just nap when I need to. Going to bed early is great. Making sure I get 8 hrs of sleep.
So I am really excited about this... I have always admired Rachel Denbow's quilts that she makes. So I asked her if she could make one for our baby! It will look similar to this, but some of the prints will be solids. Im thinking I'll have between 4-6 Heather Bailey fabrics and some coordinating solids mixed in. Im thinking of the Pop Garden & bijoux collection. It's just gorgeous! The quilt will look similar to this design but w/the Heather Bailey fabrics and some solids. (photos of Rachel's Flickr)
Something else I've been eyeing for a while now is a wrap instead of a carrier. The MetroMamma looks great. Do any of you have experience w/a wrap? I love the idea of NO buckles and annoying straps. This just seems so natural and form-fitting.
We also spent last nite looking for baby names. Our lists are pretty even as far as the amount of names if we have a girl and the amount of names if we have a boy. Im sure that list will just GROW like crazy too the next 8 months. If you have any fun... a lil quiky... unique names, feel free to leave us some suggestions! I love hearing babynames!
I signed up for babycenter. It's incredible! I love that site... Josh loves it too. That is where we have looked for babynames... and lots of other things. He loves looking at what is going on w/our baby this week. It's so cute seeing him so excited like this.
Well, g/g get back to work!
