Half Way There!
Hi everyone! I have been counting each week that passes with a sigh of relief. Early on, holding my breath to make sure all was going well and now enjoying every part of this experience.
All is going great! We did opt to have an amnio, skipped the pre-testing, and we were thrilled when we received the call that we have a healthy baby GIRL! So I went SHOPPING!!! I could not help myself! So many cute girl stuff out there!
Not too many issues besides the fact that I shun most raw veggies. Indigestion is NO fun! lol Even a few cooked ones I can no longer eat! I wake up hungry, have a larger lunch than I am use to, and dinner is on the small side. I have been enjoying frozen yogurt on occasion. Hey it's calcium! lol
I still feel like I can’t get enough fruit! lol
I did make a yummy dinner recently that I had never made before! THIS Coq Au Vin recipe from Martha Stewart. It was delicious and I got to use my new Le Creuset!
We have been busy picking out the nursery furniture.
I’ve enjoyed unpacking items that were given to me as a baby! I can’t wait to start decorating!
Baby stuff is taking over the house!
These books are really helpful! The Baby Bargain book helped me decide on so many items! Great rating system and tons of tips!
All is going well with my back so far…I have been keeping up with my pool routine, still attending the aerobics water class too. My doctor was happy that I was able to get to a pool- best exercise for us pregnant peeps!
We are headed to Kauai for a much needed vacation soon! We can’t wait to get our toes in the sand! Anyone have any favorite spots there that we can check out? We loved using Yelp to find tasty places to eat when we went to Maui, but any tips would be helpful for this new island adventure!
I would also love any tips, websites, or items that you all could recommend to me being a first time Mom. I have been trying to work on my registry and also learning basic things like what diapers to buy! Seriously SO many things to learn!
Thanks everyone! Have a fantastic day!
