Pregnancy is a time of exciting change. Your body is changing and soon your family life will be joyously altered forever. Getting ready for a new baby can be stress-free if you take the time now to plan ahead.
One of the first things that goes through a new parent's head is the need for safety. Baby proofing your home is a major concern -- and rightfully so. Many accidents that happen in the home can be prevented with a few safety precautions.
A baby crib is most likely at the top of your list of things you will need for your new baby. With all of the different styles and features, it can be a daunting task to pick the safest and best crib for your new family member.
If the baby does not cooperate, I'm going to be very annoyed. It does have a tendency to be modest -- at both ultrasounds we've had so far, it's been reluctant to show the goods! So Tim and I have come up with a plan for me to eat a cookie 20 minutes before our appointment.
On the bright side, the baby room is starting to look like a baby room. A big colorful rug, a white dresser, a rocking chair, et cetera. When I opened the dresser and found it full of little clothes, it really hit home. "Wow! Another person is going to be living here."
I made a small (one and a half minutes) video montage of our journey so far to our little miracle! You can watch it here. It was fun seeing my belly progression as I went through the pictures. It's amazing how far this little baby has come!
Hello again, Journal and sweet Journal Readers! I am so sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I guess third trimester has just been catching up to me! So much fatigue, it's incredible. Oh, and a dab of nausea, too -- so much fun!
