So I started feeling movement a little over a week ago. I guess closer to two weeks now, since it was last Saturday. I know that’s relatively early to feel it, but there it was, this tiny little buzzing feeling in my uterus. 🙂 I really can’t wait until baby’s movements are enough that Andrew can feel.
One week from today we have our Anatomy Scan. At this point it’s been 5 weeks since we saw baby, and it’ll be 6 weeks for the A/S. But, we heard the heartbeat, and I even got a Doppler so I could hear it at home. And the movement helps remind me that he/she is still there, and presumably ok in there.
I still feel like there’s so much we need to do to get ready for baby. We did a little in the nursery, super early. It’s so cute, though, we couldn’t resist. Waiting to find out the sex to do a little more decorating. But I feel like I haven’t even looked at strollers, or cribs, or… lots and lots of other stuff. We want to cloth diaper, but I any time I look at info about it, I’m incredibly overwhelmed.
And, of course, the house is messy. It usually is. We’re having a summer + “half baked” party in a few weeks, so, stuff needs to get moving in that direction. Of course, as with any time we clean, I say “hopefully we can keep it this way now!” Well, this time it seems extra important. We are not neat people, but I refuse to raise my child in a messy house. Err, a slovenly house that seems like two bachelors live here, I fully expect baby-related mess that I will be trying to stay on top of.
And today Babies R Us has a great coupon for 20% off your entire purchase, only good through Saturday. If I had a crib or stroller or otherwise large purchase picked out, it would be perfect. But I don’t. And I wish it was next weekend, when we should know the sex, and can buy more specific stuff….. First world problems, huh?
Sorry this post has been a mish mosh of random. That’s what’s going through my brain these days.
In other news, I got Andrew this for Father’s Day:
Good thing he doesn’t read my blog! 🙂
