Scans and things

We had our anomaly scan yesterday – it’s amazing to see how Parker grew! She is quite cute as well.

Stubborn – beyond belief! We were hoping to get final confirmation on the gender, but she kept her legs crossed the whole time. The doc also tried to give us a 3D photo of her face, but then she proceeded to put her arm in front of her face.
The pictures that we did get of these are quite hilarious.

So, now we have a follow up appointment in 4 weeks where we will hopefully find out what the gender is for sure – after that I think that it might be too late to return all the pink anyways!

I have to admit that thinking about how much time is left before baby arrives (about 18 weeks), I feel a bit nervousabout getting everything done.
Logically I know that it is still a while, but it just sounds so close! I’m thinking that I want to start buying all the toiletries etc. which off course raises the question of what to buy!

In terms of bigger items, I think the main things we still need is a bath (our sink won’t work all that well) and a cradle to fix the car seat to (that one is probably quite important).

Other than that…do we need much more than a cot (with changing table) and a stroller?

Seriously looking at buying a Fisher Price Sleeper – seems like it really helps with the sleeping initially.

How important is a nursing chair? I’m thinking of initially just using the sleeper couch to sit on or the office chair which are both in the nursery/guest room/study.

Excitement! 18 weeks until I can hold our little Parker in my arms 🙂

    So exciting! Girls do tend to be shyer on the scans. On my must have list, other than basic clothes and toiletries, is a baby swing and bouncy seat. My daughter had to be constantly moving to be happy (that changes when they hit their tweens!), so we had both so I could stay sane and get basic things done (cooking, showering, etc..) I think any chair would be good for nursing as long as it’s comfortable.
