I am officially a free woman! The semester (a rough one at that) is finally over! The last month has been nothing but craziness so I am glad to be a part of the real world once again!

I got a really cool surprise a few weeks ago! A friend dropped by and brought us a brand new swing, and a high chair. Apparently her momma was at Baby's R' US and they were getting rid of the floor models. The most unexpected, yet much appreciated gift! I can't wait to use them!
I have a review with a fun little giveaway coming soon!

Went to the doc today for my 16 week visit and I scheduled the BIG ultrasound! June 15th is the big day! Blake wanted to go after work so he is forcing me to go ALL damn day.....ah. I can't wait!
Heard the heartbeat again today beating strong at 154. It was kind of hard to hear because the placenta is in front of the baby (my last ultrasound at 61/2 weeks showed it was developing in front of the baby) which means I might feel the baby later on than most. Booo!

Trying to find some inspiration for the nursery. Any good places to look?

Blake and I have compromised on a name for a girl, not so much on the boy. He wants to name the boy after him. I'm hoping it's a girl.

After a conversation with him, he really has no clue about babies. "I know they cry a lot, they poop, they eat a lot, and they cry a lot. I know that when they get bigger they move around and walk......" Oh boy, we are in for some trouble!

We toured both of the hospitals my OB delivers at and decided on Missouri Baptist. I had a mini-freak out after visiting the first one. It all sunk in that this is real and that a bowling ball will be coming out of my pickachu. I don't know if I am ready for all that. Just knock me out and wake me when the kid is out.

The first hospital kind of smelled and reminded me of a hospital. I hate hospitals. HATE them. MoBap had a somewhat more homey feel to me (and had a ton of other things I liked better...like the baby is with you the whole time and not whisked away to be cleaned, or checked out, it's all done in YOUR room!)

I took a belly pic last week but it wasn't very good so I am going to take one on wends. for week 16, and I'll post them both for your satisfaction!

The best place I found for nursery inspiration was HGTV's website, Rate my Space. Click on the nursery tab and they have tons of pictures to look at. Good luck.
