If you ever have to call Babies ‘R’ Us, do NOT under ANY circumstance dial 800 as a prefix to their number instead of 888! Please for the love DO NOT make this mistake or else! Or else! You’ll call a phone sex hotline!!
How do I know? Well, I called the BAD ONE. First-timer. Scariest 5 seconds of my life. Bar none.
That being said, let’s move on. Let’s move on to the COOLEST thing that happened this week, which was the arrival of the most wonderful pregnancy care package of all time: a box from John’s sister Caci which contained no less than TWELVE pairs of maternity pants! HOORAY! PANTS THAT FIT! I am enjoying all the wiggle room in my pants while it lasts … everyone loves to tell me that by the end of my pregnancy everything that is too big will one day fit like second skin. GREAT. Know what this means, though? Since Caci is getting rid of some of her pregnancy clothes … the countdown is on! I’m gonna be an aunt in a few weeks!! WOO HOO!
Oh AND! Lookie who got engaged!!
I’M GETTING A BROTHER!! FINALLY! (Natalie and Amy are unfortunately NOT included in the package, as they belong to Nate and Kara)
OOOh, and look who had a birthday last week!
Funny how I can find the time to make a birthday cake but not to close my kitchen cabinets, huh?
Thanks for all your comments on the gender post. John saw the HUGE response and is already wearing down. Hee. Although a few of you have mentioned that not knowing the baby’s gender has been a BIG helper during labor, so I’m keeping it in mind. Do you have to know your baby’s name the second it’s born, by the way? Is there some chance that they will swap my baby with someone else’s in the nursery if it’s just "Baby Huddle" for a few hours? I figure I want to get to at least MEET the kid and spend a few hours together before we officially name him or her.
Also, any of you have navel piercings? What do you do with that whilst pregnant? I took my ring out already but I’m wondering if I’m going to get some random stretch marks or if there’s a better option. Suggestions please!! I’ve had it forever and I guess I’d kind of like to have it back once the baby’s born (don’t worry I won’t show it to anyone because, OH GOODNESS).
Oh, and WHY THE HECK doesn’t Target stock ANYTHING GOOD for babies available in the store? Why is all the good stuff online only? Is there anywhere else to register other than Babies ‘R’ Us?
What is your opinion on travel systems?
