Sorry that should read we're not doing a nursery lol. We did one for my son when he was about 6mo, but not for #2 and not for this one.

Well I use the term "nursery" quite loosely! It's a huge room so would be silly to have it as just the baby's room (we only have two bedrooms in our house) so i'm going to put a book case in there with a nursing chair/sofa and can use it to chill out myself! Not going to paint it pink or blue, just a nuetral colour so it's not too bright lol!

14 weeks today - yay!

YAY for 14 weeks!!! I can't wait to get there.

This is my first child so I am hoping for a nursery. My hubby and I live in a condo that we bought as our first place 7 years ago. We've since outgrown it and we are in definite need of a bigger place. We have a two bedroom so we're thinking about putting a lot of our workout equipment and collectibles in a storage unit. I do plan on keeping the baby in our room while I am on maternity leave, so we have about a year to do what we want.

I am printing out pictures for ideas and leaving them around the house so my hubby gets the hint lol.

So exciting planning for LO! My daughter has a room (though she hasn't used it yet) that we're converting to a home office for our business so we need to do some house reconfiguration. I think the kiddos might have to share a space until we can get a house with a 4th bedroom, or a separate office space. Also with #3 on the way, we actually need a new car as ours won't fit 2 carseats and an infant seat. So much to think about!

That is how I am feeling about my first. We need a bigger house, I need a bigger car. I drive an 02 Chevy Camero. Those seats don't hold a car seat at all, and when I get bigger I'm not going to be able to reach the clutch.

I am sure there are other things that need to change that I haven't even thought of yet. So much!!!

Yes we were looking at squeezing a third car seat in the back of our Mazda 3 Sport, but unless we get a super-narrow one without a handle there's no way. And the handle on the infant seat is soooooo important lol! But the new house can wait a while - as long as they all have a cozy bed to sleep in I'm happy!

Well we did it. We made our first baby purchase! We found a crib from a lovely couple for 100.00! Total score for a 450.00 crib! I am so happy, this is the crib I've had my eye on, well this one and one other one. But I am a happy girl and I am hoping that this pushes my hubby into fixing up the spare room for the nursery.

ALSO, I bought a vaporizer. I was having problems sleeping because I couldn't breathe. Last night I actually was sleeping comfortably. And I would have slept through the night if it wasn't for my stomach going crazy. I was starving in the middle of the night! Has this happened with any of you in the first trimester? Does it happen often?

I hope everyone is doing well!

Oh, WOO HOOO I am 9 weeks today!

Excellent score for the crib!!!! Amazing!

Also I definitely have woken up hungry in 1st tri. Usually I get up and eat a piece of toast since I find it too distracting to sleep (plus it can make me nauseous if my stomach is empty). But it's nothing compared to breastfeeding! I used to keep a food stash (and water) beside the bad for when I was nursing since I would get so hungry I would feel like I was going to pass out! Maybe keep something small beside the bed?

Thank you for that!!! I plan on breast feeding too, I had no idead that your appetite was still crazy even after giving birth. GREAT! ahahah

I was about to get up last night and nibble on something but I am so tired in the mornings and it's so hard for me to fall back asleep I just got through it. Sleeping on my side helped the pain in my stomach. But, man, I shouldn't make myself suffer. This pregnancy stuff is no joke! WHEW!
