oh the things that clutter my mind

just a few months ago I would be sitting home and thinking about the pair of shoes I needed to buy, or what curtains I should get, or what vacations Jarrett and I wanted to take next year. Now? Well now I'm consumed by baby purchases. So many choices. So many opinions. And don't get me wrong, I'm quite happy to have these decisions to make.

For those former or current brides, you know how everyone had an opinion about your wedding? Well think that x 1,000,000,000. You get the point. Except now...everyone is an expert. And instead of admitting they made choices and some were right and some were wrong and every baby is different, it's a whole lot of nah, you don't need this and you SIMPLY HAVE to get that. And a lot of stares and judgments about your decisions. Yknow the ones you are making for YOUR baby?

And don't even get me started on the internet! I could get lost with the amount of stores and baby blogs out there. Maybe sometimes less information is more? I know, I'm ranting, but I can't help it. This is hard.

This weeks topic? Bottles. Which freaking bottles do I register for? Nevermind there are tons of brand choices, now they offer some that are better for gassy babies and others for babies having trouble transitioning from breast feeding. There are different nipple sizes... I mean for the love of god... how do I know what this little baby (the size of a lemon, BTW) will need?

So instead of deciding? I'm going upstairs to watch Teen Mom 2. I'll be sure to feel better about this situation after a little bit of that, right?

If anyone is in fact reading this. What did you choose?

...until next time.

There is a baby in my belly

If you are a friend, family member, facebook friend, etc you may already know this. But it's public and my blog is now back to being public since the world can finally know!

I'm starting to feel a little better and get my mojo back. I don't want to curl up and cry due to nausea. But things that I've learned recently:

My due date is now July 5th (not June 28th), so I'm almost 14 weeks.
Our little peanut seems to be healthy and stubborn already based on our first ultrasound.
I was sick for sure-I lost 5 lbs during the first trimester! (ok, maybe the lack of booze also had something to do with it).
My hubby is the cutest and sweetest man alive.
The baby is a medium shrimp.
We found out if it's a girl or boy on February 6th.
and...I still pee constantly

Happy New Years!
