And the Nestling Will Be Born In. . .

. . . Waco, Texas.  You know, unless something goes quite, quite wrong and Baylor University decides to be a total jerk or the Nestling decides to come rather early, which we're really hoping won't be the case, obviously.

30 Weeks

The past few weekends, we've been hitting up Craigslist and garage sales for some second-hand baby things.  The highlights:

  • the super high-tech Summer Infant Best View Handheld Color Video Monitor for $100
  • a glider-style rocking chair for $30 (It has pink faux-velvet cushions, though.  I'm going to try and make slipcovers)
  • a new-in-package and ridiculously named but well-reviewed "My Brest Friend" Nursing Pillow for $25
  • A changing pad and cover for $15
  • a mess of used clothes, mostly onesies

Check-up earlier this week went fine.  My next one in two weeks will probably be the last one in Madison- we'll be talking about finding a new OB wherever we'll be moving, among other things.  It's one of the sadder parts about the job/moving situation, that we won't be able to stay with the same OB and hospital/health care group (Meriter).  She and they have been really great.

Oh, and I caved and bought some more maternity clothes, from the Motherhood Maternity in the mall and everything.  I had hoped to get by on what I had, or to try and find any additional things second-hand, but it was just so damn hot, I needed more tank tops.  Found another pair of shorts and a breezy tank dress, as well.  This one, in fact, but in a red/white stripe.  I wore it for the Fourth with some big ol' star shaped earrings and my blue blue nail polish.  We went and saw The Avengers.
