It's a.....

This past Sunday I had a 3D/4D ultrasound done. I was lucky that a friends mom needed to do some training with some of her sonogram tech's. Which means I was lucky enough to find out the sex of Baby #2 early at 16 weeks and for free! Baby was really low, breech and facing my spine which is just like its big sister like to be. In fact Claire was breech and facing my spine when she decided to make her entrance into the world. After a little work to get the baby to show the goods we found out we are having another GIRL! We are so excited!

Now the fun part has begun. I hate all baby girl bedding out there right now as it looks like pink threw up all over it and I can't stand that. So I have decided on custom bedding. We are going with a orange, teal and grey theme. Not sure what I want mobile wise so i'm on the hunt for inspiration for that. I also need to decide on a double stroller that isn't the size of an SUV (I hate big strollers). I'm thinking either a Britax B-Ready with double kit or a Joovy Caboose Too. Those are the big things I am working on. Luckily I have saved everything of Claires and since she has gained weight so slowly she has multiple seasons clothing in every size so I won't need much clothes wise. I really need to make a list of everything I need to get and do. I can't afford to wait to long, we learned that lesson when Claire came before we had done her nursery and Christian ended up painting it while I was in the hospital and I finished it before she was discharged from the NICU.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Oh we also need to work on a name considering Claire didn't have one until 20 minutes before she was born. We are so picky!

This, That & Some Change

The plague of sickness seems to have finally passed. I ended up getting two different colds. It was a rough couple of weeks. Luckily I have a wonderful husband who really helped out with Claire so I could rest up and get better. Its hard being pregnant and sick and not being able to take anything really. Poor Claire also cut three new teeth while she had her cold. She is back to her super happy self now that they are all through. All is well in our household again!

I have been feeling I needed to change it up with my hair for awhile. Its grows so quickly normally and when i'm pregnant it grows like a weed. I decided to chop it off and go with something fun for a bit. I spent the afternoon at the salon yesterday and it turned out great! Slightly shorter than I wanted but in a few weeks it will be perfect.

This week is going to be a good one. Claire has a play date with some friends from our MOPS group, I have a baby appointment on Friday and of course its Valentines Day. Claire has a couple Valentines outfits so i'm looking forward to dressing her up in those. We don't go crazy with Valentines Day but I will do a little something for Christian and will definitely make something special for dinner. Oh and I will be 16 weeks tomorrow. We should find out very soon if Baby #2 is a boy or girl. I can't wait!
