Newborn Stuff

Today was my consultation with Sia's potential pediatrician, she seemed nice and gave us information about vaccinations. She also informed us that since the clinic is affiliated with the hospital they have a policy that they don't turn any sick children away. I like that they do that but as she said she and the other doctor's have to notify parents of this because we might see children come in that are in wheel chairs, with oxygen tanks, etc. As I said I like the idea of no child being turned away, I would hate to have a child with those issues and a doctor's office turn me away because it might upset other parents. There are 6 pediatricians that work in the clinic so if Sia has a emergency and her doctor is not there one of the other doctor's will see her. So far it seems good but we are going to meet with some other doctors but I like that this clinic is affiliated with the hospital that I'm delivering at so one of the 6 doctor's will see her once she's born.

Today was also my third ultra sound. It was basically a check up which went well, I have no pics to post cuz this girl was hiding her face. All she would let the doctor see was the top of her head, legs, fingers and back (they checked her organs). What am I gonna do with this girl? The great news besides her being healthy is that she's in head down position so she is getting ready to make her debut.

After all of this the FI and I went to Babies R Us to buy a few things for Sia. Next Sunday is our baby shower so we didn't want to buy any big things yet. So we bought wipes, newborn long sleeve undershirts, a wipe warmer and newborn pampers. Can we talk about newborn pampers for a minute? How cute are they? And so tiny, I was already nervous about taking care of Sia but seeing those pampers did not help the situation. Don't get me wrong I'm used to being around babies and I have certainly changed pampers but not newborns!!! I just mastered how to swaddle a baby now I have to wrap my head around how small she will be. I'm sure I'll be fine, in the mean time check out this cute lil newborn pamper it fits right in the palm of my hand :-)

Although most of my thoughts are on little Sia's debut I've also been thinking about my hair. It has grown out so much and so thick. I can barley put it in a bun, so most of the time I wear it out (did I mention that I wear my hair natural) which I'm not crazy about because I love to wear protective styles.

Lately, I've been thinking about how I'm going to wear my hair for the baby shower and after. I think I'm going to get my hair blown out for the shower and in braids until after my delivery. Idk, I've developed a hair crush on Corrine Bailey Rae's hair. Have you seen her new video? I love how full and healthy her hair looks. I'm working on mines to be that length by sometime this summer...or fall

Sleepy Days

I've been such a bad blogger, there are times when I have so much I want to say and then I get in front the computer and it all goes. Ugh, these past few weeks I've been so tired and sore especially when I know I have to go to work. Welcome to the third trimester!!! All I want to do is rest and my commute to and from work doesn't make it easier on me. People in NYC are so mean, I've been pushed, damn near run over cuz I walk too slow and have had to stand on subway/train and bus rides. I really can't wait until I go on maternity leave so I can relax a little before Miss Sia comes (pronounced See-ah).

I must confess I feel like I'm a bad mother to be because I don't get mushy when I see baby clothes or toys. Ok I did let out a big "aaawww" when I saw these because they are too cute. But other than these nothing has got me excited, am I weird. My mother keeps telling me I'm normal while my sister shops like crazy. Were slowly getting things together for her I feel like there is so much to do in such little time. We have to get her bassinet first and then once she's here her room will get worked on. Other than that I can't wait for my baby shower, to see all my family & friends that I haven't seen in a while. Most of them have not seen me during this pregnancy so that will be nice.

This weekend I start going to the doctor every week...the end is drawing near!!!!! Also, I have a consultation with a pediatrician next week and I have my third sonogram that same day. I'm excited to see how much she's grown.

Things that I'm nervous about
-Water breaking on subway/train
-Being by myself when my water breaks
-Giving her a bath
-Being home alone with her
-Cutting her nails

Oh I have to put some new belly pics up, I've grown since the last pic. Idk if I'll show skin cuz I have stretch marks on the right side of my tummy, I guess that's her comfort zone...oh well as long as she's healthy and happy.

PS - this girl has hiccups all the cute
