time to plan for the next phase

Now that I am really showing(enough so that people smile at me and Mr. S when we walk by, sometimes) it is finally sinking in that I am still pregnant. I know, that sounds weird. But, after 3 yrs of infertility h.ell, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.

We haven't signed up for a birthing class, we haven't researched baby stuff. I will be 6 months on Sunday. I just looked for birthing classes and most that are nearby/what we are interested in are full. Will have to expand search. We are lucky to be getting many hand-me-downs, so the main search is for carseat/stroller and a cloth diapering system. It is all becoming real.

The baby moves all day long, more movement than not, it seems, and that is also making very physically tangible that this little kicker will be out in the world(knock wood) in less than 4 months.

Here I am, 23 weeks: Photobucket


  1. Well, you are a tiny thing for 23 weeks! :) So glad that things are sinking in.

  2. You look amazing!!!!
    We headed out to Great Beginnings in Gaithersburg over the weekend and it was a fun little field trip. I highly recommend Baby Bargains to help you make some decisions on the gear you do need. We plan to CD too - perhaps we can share research and tips?
    I found some super soft bamboo wipes at BRU yesterday - by Prince Edward or something like that.

  3. thanks everyone!!
    Emily- I've heard we should go to GB. Yes, we should share diaper tips!

  4. You look great, how exciting. I don't think having a baby sunk into my head until they were about 4 months old.

  5. Yes! Let's schedule a time for me to come to work on the nursery with you!

  6. You look fantastic! Definitely a pregnant lady :)
