This week I did two fun things on my pregnancy check list: I registered at Babies R Us and toured the Maternity Center at Evergreen Hospital.
Registering was pretty fun. Babies R Us is full of cute stuff. The tough part is figuring out what I want. And what I really NEED. As we don't have much space in our apartment or much money, we have to choose wisely. The worst part of registering is that after picking out tons of fun stuff, I came home and wanted to play with all my new stuff, but didn't have any yet.
Then tonight I took my hospital tour. Aside from the all the pain involved, I can't wait to go there to meet my little sweetie. I love that you are in the same room for everything....labor, delivery, recovery, and post-partum. It's so nice that you don't have to move. Each room has a big couch for Daddy to sleep on, a rocking chair, a table, refrigerator, a sink designed for baby's first bath, a bathroom with whirpool, and a flat-screen TV with DVD and CD player (gotta remember to bring movies and music!). I also found it interesting that from the time you are in active labor until about two hours after delivery you have a nurse assigned only to you. It's nice to know that my nurse will not be busy with other patients when I need her. Anyway, it looks like a nice place...I may not want to go home. :)
In other news, I am now feeling Baby moving around pretty regularly, which is SO fun. I know it will not be quite so much fun in a few months when the kicks get harder and more painful, but right now it is just fun.
I am now 5 months pregnant. 4 to go!!!
