15 Weeks

Saturday, July 23, 2011

First of all thank you all for the lovely comments. Makes me feel very special!!

Today marks 15 weeks...I cannot believe that I have been pregnant for 15 weeks or that I am now well and truly in the 2nd trimester. I am still finding it hard to believe that I am growing a little human inside of me right this very second...it's still quite surreal and I suppose it will be until I start feeling him move around inside me!

Today I put some baby things on lay-by. Target was having some sales and I decided it's time to start getting some of the more practical things together. Besides, there is so much to buy that I figure it's better to start now and gather it all bit by bit.

So today's lay-by consisted of:

-muslin wraps
-towels
-face washers
-bath thermometer
-bath seat (so we can bath baby in our big tub rather then having to use a baby bath and lug it to and from the sink to fill and empty)
-nappy bucket

Not a whole lot, but it feels good to be starting to get more of a stash together. I know it will all come together in the end, but I feel like I need to be doing something NOW! When DH is home next we will most likely make some decisions on the furniture for baby's room which will be fun.

I am using the Doppler each day to listen to bub's heartbeat and it's so reassuring. DH thinks it's funny that I need to use the Doppler every day but he isn't a worrier like me! I have felt what I *think* are some flutters...not 100% sure if it was movement or not, but I guess if it starts happening more regularly then I will know for sure that it's our boy moving about. I cannot wait until I can feel him kicking and moving...definitely make this growing a baby thing feel more real!

How fun to be buying baby supplies!!

Also, I'm totally getting a Doppler. After all we've been through...

Oh - where did you get your doppler from? The husband doesn't want me to get one because he imagines I'd use it constantly but I would love to be able to check on things each day. Good on you for getting started with the shopping!
