Alright… 28 weeks into this, the suspense is getting to me.
The baby has a room now. We have a baby’s room in our house. With a crib. And a dresser. And a glider.
The baby bedding is officially done and in the crib. Today, the crib mattress arrived.
To top it all off, I had my first baby shower yesterday. So we have baby gear–a pack n play, a bath tub, a bouncer. And tiny pajamas. And itsy bitsy socks. Receiving blankets and hooded towels.
I’ve been going into the nursery just to look at it all. Now that we have all this stuff, I am so extremely anxious to have the little person to use it all.
I want to know if it’s a boy or a girl. I want to know if we have a son or a daughter. I want to know whether we’ll have a closet full of blue or pink. I want to know which name we’re going to put up on the wall.
I want to meet my baby!
28 Weeks Pregnant
I need to exercise patience. Thankfully, we’re keeping very busy, which helps.
The search for daycare is still on. I forgot to mention in my update last week that we went and looked at a daycare center last week. It was perfect. It’s two minutes from where I work, the director of the infant program was amazing, all of the kids seemed happy and engaged, and we were comfortable there. Then, they handed us the price sheet and we realized that this place was just NOT GONNA HAPPEN. It costs more per week than I’ve ever even heard of. I’m pretty damn sure it’s THE most expensive in the area.
And so we continue. We’re interviewing another in-home option tomorrow. I so badly want it to be everything we’re looking for and more. I want it to work out perfectly so we can stop worrying about this and move on with our lives. Please, pretty please oh please, let this work out. Please.
As I mentioned above–after the new carpet was put in on Thursday and Friday and we put the house back together, we moved the nursery furniture into the house on Saturday. We put together the crib, the dresser, and the glider, and I *LOVE* them all. We have everything in its place and it’s so exciting.
Pregnancy-wise, I still have a miserable cold. Baby is active throughout the day, and it’s still amazing to feel and see. Michael felt a couple of really strong kicks last week, which was funny. Baby is over two pounds now and can apparently open/close his/her eyelids.
We signed up for birth preparation classes, which start on July 12, and we also registered for our hospital orientation/tour. Things are getting done!
This week, I go for my last 4-week appointment, then I start going every two weeks. Crazy to think that I’ll be there on Friday and then back again in just TWO WEEKS!
All of this demonstrates to me that we really ARE getting close. So WHY does baby’s birthday still seem SO.FAR.AWAY?! :)
Keep growing in there, Baby, but just know that I can’t wait to see your sweet little face!
