Yeah, I know I'm only 10w4d, but we bought our first big item online yesterday for our future nursery. Kevin found the perfect glider/recliner and it was just too good of a deal to pass up. It was over 50% off for two days only, AND we had a coupon code expiring so we decided to bite the bullet and get it. Remember our nursery inspiration? It will work perfectly! I'm excited because I've been pretty lukewarm about most gliders, but when Kevin saw this one, he knew it would be calling my name. He was right. My heart went pitter-patter when I saw it.
If God-forbid (and I hate even saying this) something happened to this baby, the nursery decor would be the same for any baby that would come to us through any other way. So I have no regrets in getting things for our nursery when I see great deals on them.
Also in baby news, someone gave me a free home doppler! It's a Sonoline B. I tried it out on Friday and within a few minutes, I found baby's beautiful heartbeat! I told my OB that I was getting one, and he warned me about the frequency that women call him freaking out due to not finding the heartbeat at home. I promised him I wouldn't do that, and I am looking at it more like a novelty item. If I can't find it, it's just because baby is hiding or moving around. I tried finding the heartbeat a second time when Kevin was around and it took quite a bit longer. I know it's not an easy feat. Finding it feels like finding a needle in a haystack, so that's reassuring if/when I can't find it. I imagine I'm only going to use it once or twice a week anyway. Thank you to the person who gave it to me. You know who you are! :)
And lastly, I took Oscar to the vet on Saturday because he wasn't getting any better. Turns out he had a bacterial overgrowth infection called Clostridium. The vet reassured me not to worry about it impacting my pregnancy. He's been on antibiotics and seems to be lots better. Hallelujah! Thank goodness that weight has been lifted.
