Four months and counting plus a little baby thrifting

I can’t believe that we are almost to the halfway point with this pregnancy.

At this point I am going to warn you. I had a funny post planned for today. And then I forgot what it was I planned to write about.

And that pretty much describes the general pregnancy brain fog I have been in for the last 3 months.

My husband says the fog makes me less neurotic. So I guess that’s a plus if you live with me.

A negative to this pregnancy thing is that I can’t seem to brush my teeth without throwing up. I have to strategically plan when to brush my teeth so I don’t projectile vomit.

Sometimes my strategy works and sometimes it does not.


In other baby news, I started a baby registry last month, but then quit 10 minutes in because all the unnecessary baby stuff was stressing me out.

We have spent so much time this year de-cluttering our house that imaging all the baby paraphernalia I was going to need was depressing :)

My sister and sister-in-law are going with me this week to finish out the registry. I am hoping the moral support will keep me from having a panic attack with all the options :)

But I have found a few great deals for baby necessities that I could not pass up.

I purchased a white metal crib, the exact mattress I wanted, and a MamaRoo baby swing all on the thrift..

For a grand total of $130. Saved myself several hundred dollars for items that I really wanted.

I may end up painting the crib (with baby-safe paint) but at this point I have no idea.

With all the stress of listing our home to sell, finding a new home and then moving the one thing that I keep looking forward to is decorating a nursery in our new house.

The fun/stressful part is I have no idea what the room will look like because I have no idea what house we will be in.

Which is also why we will be finding out the gender of the baby next month. I can only take so many surprises at once.

Happy Monday!
