Early on in my pregnancy, my mom bought me a Boppy Body Pillow. I haven’t used it much as I haven’t really been that uncomfortable laying down. As I’ve gotten bigger, I have been waking up more at night to flip around/readjust…but nothing like last night. I couldn’t fall asleep because I couldn’t get comfortable. Well, BBP to the rescue!! Immediately I was totally comfortable and only woke up ONCE in the night. I think I got the best night’s sleep I’ve had in a long, long time. So thank you, Boppy Body Pillow and Mom. I can now fully appreciate the necessity of this – even if I am in my last few weeks.
I had a shower this weekend and was totally spoiled. JT’s aunt’s (4 of them) put it on and there were a total of 25 people there. It was all his side of the family except my mom. I have another ‘my side’ and friends shower in a few weeks. It’s always a little awkward being center of attention, but it was fun. Most importantly, we got some of the basics for Baby T – like a car seat so we can actually bring her home from the hospital. Minor detail ? Baby T also got so many cute outfits!
The nursery is progressing – I think JT will be ready to paint next weekend. We’ve decided on green for the walls but don’t have anything final for the décor. I may have already mentioned that we decided to nix the $170 ‘crib/nursery sets’. They are so darn cute, but not really necessary. First, we won’t use the crib bumper or the quilt (they aren’t ‘safe’ for baby), we don’t need a diaper holder (or do we?), the sheets are fine but I can imagine we’d need a few sets anyway (so why not buy a bunch of cheaper sets?)…so the crib skirt and valance are the only things we’d really use. Instead, I’ll see if I am handy enough to make a crib skirt/valance or recruit someone to do it for me.
For the rest of the décor we’ve been looking at clearance Easter stuff to do a bunny/baby animal “theme”. I use the term “theme” lightly because I don’t want to go overboard with anything.
Otherwise, things are going pretty OK. Baby T isn’t moving as much – but when she does she moves HARD. To the point where I yelp – but I still like it. It’s fun when she turns around and I can feel her adjusting for a while. Alright, if I would have read that 10 months ago I would have been freaked out at the thought of something ‘adjusting’ in my belly. So I’ll stop there.
