We have gotten a few items already from my mom for the baby that she surprised us with this past Saturday. Her boss had a couple items that they bought thinking they would be using them for their grandchildren, but only used them a couple of times so they are practically new. We also received from his wife who was very thoughtful to do this, a new car seat. So we already have 2 car seats, a playpen, and a stroller much to our surprise.
She is planning on getting a crib from them as well that changes to a toddler bed. They are buying a new bed for their little girl and then we will be able to pick up the crib. My sister, Heidi, plans on buying a bassinet this summer for the baby as well.
I am 18.5 weeks into my pregnancy, and at the beginning of my 5th month (time is flying here). We have 18 more days until we settle the debate once and for all of boy or girl and we finalize our picks for names. We have a name picked out if we are having a boy, and I am working on a list for possible girl names which may be longer before it gets shorter. I was able to convince my DBF to consider going through a list of names and discussing possible options which he is letting me do (yeah!) so he isn't hellbent on Kachana anymore. For whatever reason, I cannot think of a middle name to compliment Kachana, and it does not speak to me as being a good pick for us on a possible girl's name. So the possibilities here are ongoing...
And one last bit of good news... on Friday night, I felt the baby kick briefly. It was on my lower right side and very light. I haven't felt any more kicks since, so I think the baby isn't quite strong enough yet to really let me have it. Also, I've been doing a lot of running around so it could be I just haven't sat still long enough to make it noticeable too. Also our registry number at Babies 'R' Us is 61933365, but you can also find us using our names, our phone or addresses, or even our parents' information online or in the store. And they do phone orders for in store pickup too just in case that option will work better for you. We are planning on doing a registry through Target as well, but it hasn't been started yet.
