Nursery Ideas

I am 17 weeks today!!

I had my 16 week appointment with Marsha last week and all is well. The babys heart rate was 148/bmp and my blood pressure was normal. She did say I need to eat more I have only gained one pound since my last appointment. My problem is that I am never hungry until about 2pm so by the time I eat I have missed most the day. So I am trying to get better with my eating.
Our big ultrasound is set for January 28, 2010. I feel like things are speeding I still remember finding out I was pregnant and Now I am 17 weeks...its crazy!

We picked out our crib and are actually going to get it today. Its on sale at Babies R'US so we feel like we should take advantage. Its a convertible crib and when you purchase it before the 21st you get a free changing table which was 200.00 on its own.
Here is the crib:


We also have picked out some bedding. I chose this bedding because it was not in the traditional pastel family and because I didn't think I needed a yellow or green nursery just because we don't know the sex. The bedding is Chocolate Brown and Turquoise. It was described as "boy bedding" on the site but I thought it was soft enough to work for a girl as well. ESPECIALLY because I don't think everything for a girl neeeeds to be pink or purple..... Anywho here is the bedding:

We arent getting this now but its on our wishlist. I think we will do a turqouise accent wall, with brown shelving and wooden letters that spells out babies name above crib. I have a few more ideas for nursery but FIRST my husband must finish putting the floors down.

Back to school

So my lovely two week vacation is over and I am back to work with my kiddies. I was scared they would return high on life and drive me up a wall but it seems that some have actually matured a bit in the two week span and that is a shock! I did kind of miss my kiddies but I loved my break.

The holidays were cool Amir and I went to NY to visit my family and it felt so good to be "home" I haven't been to NY since the summer time and I missed it. I ate so much. One thing I love about NY is food. Whenever I go home I have to make sure I get things that I can't eat anywhere but in NY like a slice of pizza from my favorite pizza shop, Spanish food, and a hero from little Italy. Then of course my nana and aunties cooking! I also got to spend time with my little sister who is growing up so fast. On of the things about having a sibling nearly half my age is I am so over protective and want her to stay my "little" sister forever but she is definitely shifting into a teenager and it blows me. In terms of gifts I received some clothes from a few family members, a necklace from my sister, and one of my favorite gifts from my dad which was the Amazon Kindle. I have wanted one of these for awhile because I am always reading 3 or 4 books at a time and it just makes life so much easier to carry one thing. Amir got me this thing for my car that makes it bluetooth enabled and I can talk on the phone through the car speakers. It is VERY cool and I love it. I bought him DJ Hero which is some game that allows you to mix music and comes with turn tables and all kinds of stuff...he loved it I am clearly in love with a big kid.

In pregnancy news all is well. I have my 16 week appointment tomorrow and my belly is growing. Here is a picture I took this evening at 16 weeks 4 days:


Its a huge change from my christmas pic which was taken a few weeks before at 14 weeks and 5 days:


Hopefully tomorrow I can schedule my 20 week ultrasound. Although we are not finding out the sex I am still anxious to see the baby again this time with it actually looking like a baby and not just a bean :-)
