W00T W00T!! V-day baby!

Can I just say how thrilled I am to have made it to this point? What an amazing milestone :)
MH and I went to IKEA today and bought a few things.... I can't for him to put together the dresser, and the flower lamp to go with the lady bug lamp It should hopefully be cute! We didn't want an expensive dresser until we move into our home, so this cheapie should work perfectly! I loaf IKEA :)

Here's me!

A few firsts!

So today was our first 80* weather we've really had all year (I'm hoping this is finally the start of summer) and boy did my body react! Here's a picture of my feet (you can actually press things against my calves and leave an imprint for a good 5 mins) LOL

I have something for you......
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So many emotions run through me on a daily basis still to this day. Yes, I got pregnant, but I'm still not "normal".

I have trouble being totally happy and ok with this pregnancy. For some reason I feel like something will happen and that it will be taken away from me. I guess after all the heartache I endured dealing with infertility, it's difficult to just forget all the aches and pains.

Don't get me wrong, I am forever happy I've made it this far, and can only hope and pray that things go great until delivery, but I don't know if I will ever be one of those people who can just be obliviously happy.

Of course I have my days of being on cloud nine, but those insecurities are still lingering around making it painfully difficult to move forward. Odds are greatly stacked against me that I'll ever get to know what it feels like to be a "oops, it just happened" girl, or "it took little to no effort."

Light at the end of the tunnel- I guess it makes me that much more appreciative of what I have and are working towards. Amelia will never know how much her mom and dad truly went through to see her smile

Baby Nursery- Stage 3 of progress

So it's coming together... we got the crib, glider, swing and bassinet put together yesterday, and took the out bedding to air out (we'll wash it closer to baby's arrival). It feels odd, yet so overly exciting to have it becoming a baby room :) MH kept walking in there yesterday, sitting on the glider and just looking at everything saying how exciting.

We still have a LONG way to go though... I have to put up the wall decor (and buy some, yippee!) then we need to get a dresser and arrange the closet- which by the way still has baby items that my sister donated (besides the swing and bassinet). Once Amelia is here, we'll move the bassinet into our room, and the swing out into the living room- but for now, it goes all into the one room.

Here are some pics we took :)

There's a blanket over the bassinet so that kitties don't climb in, sorry!

You never know where you'll be found!

So, a friend of mine was looking for information about Femara so I went looking for the link for a recent free Femara prescription (like I had placed in my blog a while back) and this is what I found..... Google Link
I know my blog is open now and that it could be found, but I suppose I never thought it would be that easy as to type in a blurb and find me! Yowza! lol

Hopefully if someone clicked to my blog, that it helped them get the free meds!!

The old-new bookshelf

So I spent much of the early morning staining our bookshelf to match the furniture we're getting..... I think I'll have to do a second coat, but we'll see!
