Where has the time gone? In some ways it’s totally crawling slowly by and we can’t wait to meet this baby! On the other hand it’s going super fast and we so aren’t prepared for this! We’ve been dreaming of this for years and suddenly it’s like we can’t get anything done.
I’m currently 22+ weeks. I can’t believe I’m here! We had an anatomy scan 2 weeks ago and baby looked good. In the 50th percentile for most measurements and weighed about 12 oz. We got to watch on the ultrasound screen for about 45 minutes. Unfortunately they weren’t able to get a good spine measurement so we have to get another anatomy scan in 2 more weeks. Not that I mind, seeing the baby is amazing.
We did find out the sex and we’re having a boy! Cue all the feels. We are very excited but have no clue on a name. We had a girl name already picked out but so far nothing has grabbed our attention boy wise. We’ve got 5 names we think are ok but nothing great. I’m hoping one of them grows on us or we hear a name that we love.
We started our registry last week and that was an eye opener. I had a notebook with what we needed, what brands we wanted and such but once in the store we were shell shocked. We ended up picking out a crib and some diapers and that was about it. I came back home and did some hard core researching.
We then went to another store several days later and I felt better with our choices. We still need to pick a stroller and carseat. I’ve changed my mind several times on those. I also need to compare checklists and make sure we’re registered for everything. I’ve hardly bought anything myself because I still can’t believe this is happening. So far I have a sling for me, a carrier for my husband, a few things of wipes and diapers, and 1 outfit. That’s it. We need a lot more stuff!
Anything you love or hate in the way of baby stuff? Especially stroller and carseat wise? We also need to get moving on the baby’s room. I’ve got two tubs in there and I’m slowly moving stuff out but it’s taking forever. My goal is to have it painted by the end of May and then to have it finished by the end of June. That’ll give us a 2 month buffer and will be after both of my showers.
I’m very excited about my showers. My work one will be in May and my family/friends one will be in June. It’s getting so close! I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready!
