I am now 11 weeks pregnant. We are very excited here. The girls can hardly wait to meet the new baby. The due date is November 20th, I am usually around 5 days late so we will see baby somewhere near Thanksgiving. I went and had an u/s at 8 week where we say a baby that measured perfectly and had a really strong heartbeat. I have had my times of being worried that something is wrong and I will lose this baby because of my previous two miscarriages in a row. But I am trying really hard to trust the Lord and remember that He loves this baby more than I ever can and He has this little life in His hands. And that is exactly where I want this new life to be.
I have been making out my list of things I will need for baby. Since it’s been a few years and most of our baby stuff was worn out anyway, we need lots. Some things I put on my list I am removing as our finances aren’t up to buying those items and since they are high ticket items (fancy cloth diapers, an Ergo carrier with infant insert etc.) I couldn’t see keeping on the list for others to buy if they wanted. I would feel like it’s too expensive.
So far I have one newborn diaper courtesy of Pampers, lol. I also have two newborn gowns in yellow and 5 receiving blankets. I’m off to a good start eh? Today I ordered fabric and notions to make a second baby blanket and to make 3 nursing covers. One for the car and two for use at home. My babies are big spitters usually so I think I will need a back up for when one is being washed. I picked such pretty fabrics, I hope they turn out nicely.
Well, my morning sickness is coming back yet again so I had better lay down until it goes away again. Have a wonderful day!
