Counting down...

The official ultrasound date is one week from Monday. I will be approaching 22 weeks when I have my ultrasound. We are in count down mode. This thing is halfway over at the latest. If this baby make's his/her appearance like Lilly did it has been halfway over for a while.

I'm trying not to panic at how little planning I have done....I mean I have looked at some pictures online but that is it...

Umm...it does help to know that I since I stay at home I won't have to line up child care and I have totes of newborn clothes for both genders. I plan to breastfeed again hopefully if all goes well. Does any of this count as planning and being prepared?

I also realize that when babies are born things do not always go as planned, so I suppose I am jumping the gun anyway!

So I will blissfully await the arrival of this little bundle of joy and try to convince myself I am prepared and ready....and I suppose after we find out what it is on the 22nd I will commence on my most favorite part of readying one's self for a new baby...shopping! Oh yeah and arguing with my delightful husband as to what name we are going to pick...

Perfectly normal....Maggie didn't have a room until several weeks AFTER she was born:)....not that she ever needed one since she's STILL sleeping with us:)

Well as far as a name goes, if it's a girl I think it should be something Elizabeth after her sweetest, most precious, Aunt. (me)

I can not wait for the 22nd!!!

Can't wait until the 22nd, and I can't wait to meet your precious bundle of joy! Hopefully soon Trav will agree on some names that sound good to you...names are such a hard decision!
