Tomorrow we have our 20 week anatomy scan at the high risk maternal fetal specialist tomorrow. It will be fun to see how much he has grown! Of course, a wee bit of nervousness will be present - always waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it's getting better. I am starting to feel more like a normal pregnant person.
Yes, headaches are still hanging around, but this week they have not been as severe. the best thing about IVF is all the cloth covered ice packets that came with the medications. They have been the best cold compresses for my head over the last 5 months. So don't throw those things away ladies!
Hiccups! I felt a rhythmic kicking yesterday afternoon whiled doing Circle and Bloom for pregnancy and thought it was funny that he was moving like a metronome. When it started up again at 4 am this morning when I was trying to fall back asleep, I realized that it was hiccups. I woke my DH up to tell him, because I was so excited. He is becoming more real to me everyday!
Officially Obsessed with planning the nursery. I have already put my crib put together! It's a Jenny Lind DaVinci Crib I ordered off Amazon. We also ordered a Sealy foam core soybean mattress from Amazon. It was recommended in the Baby Bargains book (love this publication!). It's not a top of the line crib by any means, but it will do the job. We are not using the wheels. There is no bite bar on the crib, so I am sure this crib with have little teeth marks all over by the time our baby is done with. I can't believe they stay in cribs until they are two! Haven't decied on bedding yet. I ordered some sheets from Carousel. Impulsive late night internet shopping, so don't know if I will be keeping them. Haven't exactly worked out my color scheme. Will not be doing a bumper, so really all I need is a bed skirt and some sheets. I have my eye on a linen bedskirt from Restoration Hardware - I ordered a sample of it for free:)
My other big purchase for the nursery is going to be FLOR carpeting. I ordered a sample of this.
It's defiinitely pricey, but again something that can be used for years and our hardwood floors are freezing! My mom had some leftover carpet that she said I could use, but it's not "green" and I want to try to keep the chemicals to a minimum in the nursery. FLOR is low VOC.
I haven't really come up with a theme for the nursery. I love local MS folk art, so I will be purchasing these prints by Walter Anderson.
