Reggie- Target doesn't have much in the stores, but they have a whole lot online! Also, My hubby hasn't really "freaked out" but he also hasn't taken much initiative when it comes to learning what's going on with baby/my body. It's like pulling teeth. I actually asked my MIL to have my FIL call and talk to him...he didn't get very far...I think it's hard for them because they are not going through this the same way we are. Today, I finally got DH to read a couple of articles about doulas and then he had these questions like, "You expect me to understand medical stuff? I'm supposed to be your labor coach?" I was like yes..."but your medical knowledge is so much better than mine..." I told him I might not be in a rational state of mind and would need him to make decisions...he still thinks my knowledge/understanding would be better than his! I told him, that's why we will go to childbirth classes etc!

I think we just have to be patient with them...

Yeah. It's actually funny, the way my dh and I work is that he looks at one expensive thing and then freaks out for like a month. Meanwhile, I will go look at all the stuff and not stress. Then when we go to buy, I will find things I love but that are really expensive and not buy them because I can't justify the cost in my head. He will have spent the month screaming about how we can't afford to have a child and will go out, like the same thing I did and buy it. I said this to one of the girls I work with on Friday. While showing her a picture of the crib set that I love. And that I wouldn't buy it because we can more things for the same amount if I get cheaper stuff that is just as durable. Then today we went to the store and without me even around him, he came up and was said I found a crib I really like. It was the exact one I was showing her. I said yes, I liked that one too, but it's too expensive. He said eh, it's fine. This from the guy who wanted to buy things used. As far as what is going on in my body, he's pretty ambivalent about it. I get it though, he can't really participate so it's hard to focus. How is everybody feeling?

hahaha, that's funny Reggie! I told DH today that he gets to figure out which baby monitor we register for/buy. He loves to analyze stuff, so I figure, let him do all of that work!

I was thinking...you ladies are awfully quiet...but I have a feeling it's because of how much first trimester takes out of you! I know I was on here A LOT less during my first trimester. I hope you ladies are all feeling well though!

We are only 12 weeks but I think we are going today to register. My husband teaches high school band and I am sure as soon as we tell those kids they are going to want to go buy stuff.

Nice...so what kind of crib did you get if you don't mind my asking?

We are going to get the Baby Cache Montana in driftwood. We think it will go well with boy or girl. It will take a few weeks to get here though, so I'm waiting to order until I put a little more money away. We are still working on getting the rooms moved around so that we can start on the nursery. So I don't want to order the crib and dresser until the nursery is at least ready to be painted. Also, we don't find out what the sex is until May 30 so we are waiting on the registry until then. I figure we will order the crib and do the registry at the same time.

So I have to tell this funny story about DH since I said that he seems ambivalent about the body changes. I am a stomach sleeper and it has recently started to reach a point where that isn't going to work any more. I can still do it with pillows but I toss and turn a lot trying to get comfortable. So yesterday, I walked up to DH while he was on the couch and he put his hands on my belly. I thought, ah he is being sweet and starting to pay attention. Then he said, very seriously, "I am going to get you an innertube to sleep on so that you stop bouncing around the bed." ass. But I laughed. He went through a whole plan of how it was going to work. He's such a dork. But sweet in his own way.

Have any of you girls had to buy maternity clothes yet? I am due November 24th and I bought a long sleeved shirt that I found on the clearance rack at target today. I just wanted to look to see if they carried kacki shorts and I couldn't resist buying something.

Wow this is gorgeous. Nice and sturdy and it looks like it'd be easy to clean. I'll start looking at cribs and strollers soon so at least I have something to compare to.

I haven't bought maternity clothes yet, but I am wearing most of my pants unbuttoned with a belly band. So far, it's still working. My bbs are also still growing and my shirts are starting to get snug in that area. I'll probably need to go shopping soon. I'm 14 weeks...due Nov 1.
