Oh Baby!

This post is supposed to be more baby ranting but I couldn't post something today without mentioning the amazing game last night. I had been looking forward to the Super Bowl for 2 weeks and yesterday my Packers did not disappoint. I am ecstatic that they won and I'm so happy my little girl is coming into a year where her team wins the Super Bowl, because my baby is definitely a Packer's Baby!

So enough of that, now time for some baby ranting.

Today I had a doctors appointment, just a typical check up to hear the baby's heartbeat but we also got to find out if everything was ok from the last ultrasound, regarding the baby's measurements. The doctor said I'm doing great :) and our little girl measured perfectly! Now we're pretty much just riding it out and making sure I'm ok, the doctor said we're pretty much done with blood test for the baby and everything we just need to make sure I'm ok.

I'm about 2 weeks away from entering into the 3rd trimester and I'm ridiculously excited. My belly has gotten bigger, it seems to be growing everyday. Our little girl is the size of a papaya right now and apparently she's taking up a lot of room in my belly. I've been feeling her hiccup a lot and kick every once in a while, it's a crazy feeling but I love it, when she's not moving around I find myself giving my stomach a little shake and asking her to wake up :)

I'm excited in the next few weeks to do some real baby shopping. I really need to go maternity clothes shopping, which I'm excited to do. I'm also really looking forward to buying my diaper bag! It is a Timi & Leslie Baby Jane in black.
I love this diaper bag because it's stylish I can use it as a purse and a diaper bag, instead of having to haul around a purse and a diaper bag, plus I think it's really cute.

I've also been going back and forth about what stroller I want. At first even before we got pregnant I had been looking at the Maclaren strollers and had my heart set on one of these.
However, I have been going back and forth for a while and the other day I was at the mall with my best friend and we were looking at baby clothes and I saw this women with the Quinny Buzz 3 and I all of a sudden really wanted that stroller, I had seen it before online and really liked it but seeing it in person was even better. I know it's different from the traditional stroller and I think that's what I really like about it, it's trendy but still comfortable, it's not bulky which is a big deal for me and it's stylish. It's kind of expensive so It would take a lot of convincing of the husband on my part to be able to get it. For now though I'm really in love with it.

The thing I'm looking forward to the most though is going baby girl clothes shopping!!! I haven't bought any baby clothes yet, we've been trying to hold off but I can't wait much longer so in the following weeks once we make our big move, I'm going to scour the Bay Area for the perfect baby clothes :)

Since I'm no longer in school and I'm also not working at the moment I've been spending a lot of time watching tv and reading pregnancy books, magazines, and spend a substantial amount of time on thebump. One of the things I watch a lot of is Baby Story, it's a show on TLC that documents the last weeks of a woman's pregnancy. I love watching the show but I can't help but get really emotional, I mean I'm already an emotional person (it's my cancer side) but this is out of control, when they show the baby being born, I without fail break down and cry. I know I'm probably just crying out of excitement for wanting to be in that position myself but It makes me feel like a big baby. I don't mind crying though it just sucks because it gives Derek something to make fun of me for. No worries though I know Derek will turn into a big fat baby when he gets to meet our little girl ;)

Well for now that is all I have to report. Hopefully I'll have some more fun news to share soon.
