Okay - I'm a little better now. I'm getting used to the idea of a little boy and getting very excited about it. I found some cute bedding/accessories I liked so that has thrilled me! James and I are talking about names and its fun!! My momma is so awesome - the bedding I picked out is a bit pricey for my taste....but I'm justifying spending the extra because all of the big purchases are already made....we have furniture for nursery, swings, bouncers, exersaucers, stroller, car seat....pretty much everything we need (I bought all gender neutral stuff the first time) So all we really need for this BOY is decor, a blue bathtub and a few other things. So I feel okay about spending a little more to make his room adorable! Back to saying my mom is awesome - she is SpLiTtInG the cost of the stuff with me!!!!! AWESOME! Here is a picture:
I think it looks mature and he can grow with it. It shows a lot of accessories in the picture, but I've narrowed it down to ones that I NEED and ones I can DO WITHOUT. We'll probably paint the walls either Tan/Blue or Red/Blue. I'll wait to get the stuff before I decide on paint. I can't wait to get this BOY nursery looking BOY-ish....right now its purple & green.....I just can't picture my boy in there yet!
So my regular dr. appointment after the ultrasound was good. Dr. Boyd said I was on schedule, baby's heartbeat was great and I had only gained 5lbs in my 18 weeks. I like that, since my goal is not to go over 22 lbs this pregnancy. 22 weeks to go.... I hope I stay under my 17 lbs I have left alloted for myself.
It's Friday, although I woke up thinking it was Saturday - what a bummer.
OH - I forgot. James was laid off from his job last Friday and I was a mess. He's reassured me that everything will be okay! We started him an A/C Company about 2 years ago (I say WE b/c he does all the labor work, but I'm basically working a 2nd job keeping up with all his books and paperwork) and he's been doing work on his own in the evenings and weekends - he is very hopeful that he will be successful doing A/C on his own full time. I'm excited to see how it goes...but in the back of my mind I'm super nervous. He is a hard worker and I know he will do whatever it takes to keep us comfortable. If I wasn't pregnant I wouldn't be concerned at all but with all the extra expenses coming up....I'm a bit nervous....especially since I do not have full maternity insurance.
Here is to a good & fast Friday. I need to sleep in tomorrow =)
