I had a doctor appointment today and she checked my cervix for the first time. I have no idea why they check you so early since I was zip, nada, zero, not even close to being dilated yet. She even said her head is still pretty high up. Same story with Cooper who was late. I want her to come a week early but it's a little discouraging when each appointment they tell you are zero. Of course, I can go from zero to active labor in no time, so we will see what happens!
On other news, our church threw us a baby shower for baby Callie which was a huge blessing. We received so many adorable girl clothes, girly things and diapers that were all much needed! It was a co ed shower so Justin and Cooper were able to be there too!
|I love this adorable dress with her name on it!!|
|Such a cute diaper cake!|
It was so fun to receive girl clothes and girly things since I don't have any of that besides the things I have bought from time to time when there are sales. Girl clothes are too much fun!
The nursery is coming along but I still have a loooong way to go! I did want it all completed by the last month, but she won't even sleep in her own room for the first 2-3 months so it really isn't urgent. As of right now, I have the crib, dresser, rocker, and the bedding!
I love the bedding! I still need to hang the curtains, the mobile, and her letters on the wall with her name that I have. I have the lamp shade, just need to get the lamp stand and also a bookshelf to put on one of the walls. I did wash all of her clothes so far and have them put away in the dresser and we also got all the baby stuff out of the attack. Now her room is a mess again filled with baby stuff I need to go through. Thank goodness for the swing and bouncer that we have! I also went through all of Cooper's newborn- 6 month clothes to see if she can wear any of it and washed all those clothes that can be co ed. I would show Justin some clothes and ask him if he thought Callie could wear this and he pretty much said no to almost everything! I thought it was pretty funny that he was not crazy about his daughter wearing boy clothes, but hey put a bow on her head and she will be cute as ever :-)
I really am thankful this pregnancy has gone as smoothly as possible so far. She is active and moves so much more than Cooper, which has been a blessing and I haven't had any complications. I am definitely feeling more tired and get ligament pain from time to time. I'm still able to take Cooper on walks especially with the weather being so nice, but there are some days where I feel like a 2 mile walk was like running a half marathon. I'm also not sleeping as well and wake up every night around 4 or 5am and it takes me about an hour to go back to sleep. I know no idea why! I'm trying to go to bed earlier since I'm not sleeping as well (of course having to take 100 potty breaks in the middle of the night doesn't help either).
We are so excited to have our baby girl so soon! I sure hope taking care of a newborn is like riding a bike and comes back quickly because I have read nothing this go around. Um what are the 5 S's again?? Oh well, I'm sure I'll figure it out just like we did with Cooper. Lets hope this month goes by fast!!
