Making room for baby

Hospital tour was the other night and it really made things click in the "OMG, this is really happening" way. I wasn't planning on the tour but I'm glad I went because it helped to get a feel for the place and I really like how their policies encourage baby staying with mom as much as possible. I was worried that they would be taking him to the nursery while I was recovering from the surgery but they said that as long as everything is ok he can stay with me.

Oh yeah.... did I mention that baby is a BOY! Even though I had been hoping for a girl in the beginning when they told me that he was a he I was thrilled. I'm still trying to decide on a name because I don't really have any that I just LOVE. It's so much easier to name pets.

I'm feeling pretty good overall even though my guts are starting to feel pretty smooshed and the heartburn is killer.

27 down and 13 to go

27 weeks today and I can't believe how quickly time is flying!
I've finally had some relief from the nausea and throwing up- Woo HOO! I've been taking an acid reducer for the last 3 weeks and it has made all the difference. I even gained a few lbs for the first time at my dr appt. last week.

Baby prep is going a lot slower then I would like but I'm still so undecided on things like car seats, swings, bouncers and diapers. I want to use cloth but I have no idea how to start. I'll be sharing my room with the little one so I have to get my butt moving on clearing out some space. The crib will be here soon and I have some furniture to move around and cleaning to do. Fun stuff!
