20 weeks!

We're mixing things up around these parts, probably for the remainder of my pregnancy. I've been wanting to switch my Bumpdates to Thursdays for a while now so I can participate in the 5 Things link up, but something has always come up. Now I have a chance to move things around and I'm doin it!

Baby size: Banana
Any symptoms?  back pain, but that's just going to be there because of my back issues
Cravings? donuts... good thing a few jumped in the car on my way home from dinner with friends last night
Favorite part this week? going to BuyBuy Baby with Danny
Least favorite part this week? I felt kind of Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Not sure if it was from dinner or what
Boy or Girl? BOY!! :)
Names? Since yesterday we've been calling him one name in particular, but Danny isn't ready to commit just yet.

For our anniversary on Monday, we decided to head to Indy and get dinner then go to Buy Buy Baby so Danny could look at baby things. I thought it was a great idea since I felt kind of overwhelmed when I went in with a friend. We started out easy in the clothes then just made our way around. I ran into a sorority sister who just found out that day that she is having a boy too, and she just so happens to be due a week before me. How awesome! While I was talking to her and her mom, I think Danny was just staring at everything and starting to hypervenilate because when I asked him if he was ready to keep moving he sounded a little paniced(that spelling just does not look right by the way). We started looking at cribs and all was okay... except all cribs at Buy Buy Baby cost what seems like a fortune.
Danny test drove a stroller and we found a travel system we like. We get a free carseat from the hospital that we are delivering at, but we didn't see any strollers that went with that brand. At least not at Buy Buy Baby. Isn't he cute though? :)

On Sunday I am going nursery shopping with my mom. We were all set to order a crib and dresser from Target, but then they didn't have the dresser in the right color of wood. Soooo, I'll have to see them all in person and probably buy pieces from different sets, if not stores.
Now that we know there is a little boy on the way, its time to get our butts in gear and get his room going. We have time, but the next 3 weekends are jam packed and we're going to be gone for 5 days in September... soooooo yeah.
Hope you all have a good Thursday! The weekend is almost heeere!!


  1. Hi! I'm a new follower. I'm not even sure how I found you, maybe through Meredith?
    Anyyyyway...I love your blog. It is so fun to read pregnancy updates (my daughter is almost 2). I found that literally everything at Buy Buy Baby was way more expensive than anywhere else. Happy shopping!

  2. Wish I could sport some shorts like you have on....I have been in just jeans forever now and my legs want to breathe! you get a free carseat?? i've never heard of that! that's awesome! also, just an FYI that I never thought of until someone informed me...they have really cute cribs (and other furniture) on Amazon and you can get free shipping on a lot of it. That's where I ordered my crib from! :)

  3. I cant tell you how much I love all things chicco!! Ive used my stroller car seat combo for both my girls, and it will get used this time around for our third little girl. Everything is still fabulous!

    you look sooo great! Have fun getting all your baby essentials:)
