Jumbled Thoughts

Here are the late 13 week pics. I still think I just look chunky. Pop, belly, pop!



*I caved and went to Victorias Secret for the first time since becoming pregnant. I had a $10 off coupon and figured a properly fitting bra was needed. As I predicted, I have grown a full cup size in the past few months. I can only imagine what it will be like when the milk comes in.
*My friend brought me over a huge bag of maternity clothes to borrow. She is about the same size as me pre-pregnancy and she had Madison in October, so the seasons correspond. I was expecting a few things, but there is at least 20 shirts, nice pants, comfy pants, nightgowns, and a bathing suit. The only thing I will need very soon is demin..a few pairs of jeans and capris.
*I have been spending some time browsing baby products, both online and in stores. Can I just say, overwhelming!? How will I ever choose?
*I am counting down the seconds until the weekend. We are going to the new cottage to relax and I couldn't be more excited.

Oh yes and, HELLO SECOND TRIMESTER!!!!

Yay for 2nd trimester!!!

As for baby products- talk to other moms who have at least 2 kids or more! They've tested lots of stuff and have lots of wisdom to share. For example, love the Rainforest baby swing by Fisher Price (it plugs in so you don't waste batteries)!

Awesome about the maternity clothes, too. They are expensive to buy!

Stephanie said...

I think your lil belly looks adorable! Believe me..soon enough you will be saying you dont know how much bigger it can get! lol
Good luck with all the decisions..it is overwhelming, but I would just ask friends! THat was what I did and just get different opinions!!
You could always put a q&a on here and get some advice! :)

what a cute baby bump. i love baby bumps!! :0) and ohh yes. i grew a lot with my last pregnancy. in the end i wore a 'bravado' nursing bra. it 'grows' with you and fits a few different sizes. i really liked it. plus i can still wear them after pregnancy with nursing.

Your baby bump is adorable! Believe me, when you pop, YOU WILL POP and it will happen practically overnight. With my first it was at about 20-21 weeks...sooner with the other two :)

As far as baby products are concerned, think about this...what kind of space do you have in your house for big items (i.e. full size swing, high chair)? As first time moms we feel like we need all the "stuff" and my husband and I were no different. The first time he walked into Babies R Us I though he would pass out...hilarious :) We got the big swing and the high chair and the diaper genie and the baby wipe warmer. Well, we moved after baby #1 and when #2 came along we didn't have the room for the full size swing and high chair anymore. We borrowed the swing my mom had that sat lower to the floor and was portable. I fed the baby in a booster seat that reclined and then when she was able to sit better I sat the seat upright. Oh yeah, the baby wipe warmer started drying the wipes out after about 2 months with the first baby and diaper genie was more hindrance then help, we kept a trash can outside and just took them there.
You just need to do what is right for you guys and what works best for the setup you have in your house. Sorry this is so long but I wanted to share what I have learned after having 3 kids. If you can save some money on some of the items not as necessary then you can put more towards the other bigger items. Best of luck and more importantly...HAVE FUN :)
