:: Baby No. 2 ::

:: Well I am officially feeling VERY pregnant - this baby has been so different to Jacob as it's all up & down and Jacob was very wide not up & down ::

:: I shouldn't complain because I am such a healthy pregnant girl, no diabetes, no excessive weight gain, no high blood pressure (it's actually best when I'm pregnant, usually it's a little high), no horrible morning sickness, not much water retention (except for the past few days) - so really I have nothing to complain about, but now I am getting uncomfortable. Since this baby is up & down it makes bending over a chore and I feel like I'm going to blast this baby out and puke at the same time...sorry for the visual! But it's so not fun! ::
:: I am 37 weeks 2 days which means 19 more sleeps to my due date...I want the baby out and yet I don't, I know I will be able to handle the two kids fine by myself but a the current moment I have only one child that needs my attention, so I'm trying to savor that. ::
:: Last week at my 37 week apt the babies heart beat was 155 - which was pretty much the same as Jacob's, so it's any one's guess as to what it's going to be. Due to the fact that this pregnancy has been so different we think it's probably a girl but based on the heartbeat we think it could also be a boy - so who knows! ::
:: Dr. Schuurman sent me in for a stress test at the hospital on Friday as babies movements had slowed considerably and the fundal height of the belly hadn't changed in fact it had gone down a centimeter, but everything looked great and the nurses/doctors at the hospital were not the least bit worried. They did demand though that I do a 2 hour kick count test every day -- Yeah I have time for that!?!? Not! I have been obedient thus far and taken the time to feel the 6 counts they demand I feel in the 2 hour period. ::
:: I have been saying that I would post an official belly shot but I have yet to get one taken - here is a picture of Christy (my SIL) hugging the baby yesterday ::

:: I have been delaying packing my hospital bag - but I really need to get it done today. I have been looking for a new set of pj's/lounge wear to get for the hospital but hadn't found anything till I saw my SIL Jenn on Sunday @ Thanksgiving dinner. She was wearing this super cute lounge wear from Old Navy and said it was really reasonable. So I think I'm going to get this to wear in the hospital after I have the baby - You just feel so much better when you have something fresh and cute to wear. Jenn looked it up on the Old Navy website and it looks like the top is half the price in the States as it is here (surprise surprise) so I'm going to head down maybe tonight to pick it up - Thanks Jenn for letting me steal your cute outfit :) ::

:: I'm getting it in magnum grey so it will be different to Jenn's - she bought cream...I love the cream but my butt won't look good in the pants - I already know that! ::

that outfit looks like a 'must-have'! I think I must go and get one for myself too! So the price was quite a bit ceaper in the USA huh? Hmmm....I think I need to venture across the line soon! Thanks for showing it Shawna!

Jennifer said...

So cute! I always had to have a new nighty to give birth in (I do not like hospital gowns) and a new outfit to go home in. It makes all the difference when you have new clothes!!

Shawna said...

It's so true about the new clothes...I love that you are always smaller when leaving the "baby hotel" as well...that feels so good!

Amanda, This outfit is also good for breast feeding as the top doesn't have to be lifted up - wonderful!!!

Amanda said...

Shawna, do you know the price in USD vs. CDND?

Shawna said...

The bottoms in the US are $24.50 and up here are $19.99 and the top up here is $34.50 and the top down there is $19.99 - so I am buying the pants up here and the top down there for a total of $45.00 (with tax etc.) - Not too bad hey!?!?!

Amanda said...

Nope, I would say that is pretty fantastic!! Do you know if they fit 'small' or 'big'?
I guess I should just go to Guildford and figure it out for myself! haha! Thanks for the help! And here's to being comfy!

I'd like to add that those outfits are cute for all us non-prego mamas too!

I will be buying the top for sure -in cream!

Amanda said...

Tried on the shirt tonight and it didn't work for me. My upper body is too long! Sheesh! I thought it would work....
Also, the bottoms are $24.50 and the shirt is $34.50 so I would pick up both down there!

You will be starting a "grey" theme....the pic in the next post of the three of you a few hours after J was born you are wearing grey as well.

Shawna.............

Make sure the price you pay for having cute clothes from the states doesn't result in the chance of having an AMERICIAN child.

I can hear the Fred Meyers page "clean-up from isle 5 to the exit"
