Ok, so Saturday I went to Babies R Us. mainly, so I could see in person the Windsor line from Graco. and it is every bit as gorgeous as it looks online. but I still am all quandaried.

ok, so. I really like the green toile stuff. I want the green toile bedding from target. then I worry if its too girly. the bedroom is already yellow, with a hunter green carpet, so I think sage stuff will be best. and oh, coincidence, happens to be the color of choice for gender neutral! enter toile. katie LOVES toile. I would rather blue toile, but recall the green carpet? even though i won't have green carpet forever, but still. i have it now, and that is important. is it ok to put a boy in sage toile and gingham? no ruffles. just simple toile and gingham. can I do the windsor pattern? or ought I settle for the blue/yellow plaid, which is also up my alley?

Updating: we had our first preg work-up on June 2. My poor husband got to witness his first pap smear, breast exam, and even a rectal. which was just ew! I also got poked with a TB test. peed in a cup. and had 20 vials of blood drawn. We also were sent back down for an ultrasound. Baby has little wiggly arms and legs! and a wee brain! and Andy swears he saw a giant penis. I saw it too, but we know that isn't it. everything looked good, and I was measuring right on target. the dr. thought I felt smaller than I should at 9 weeks, and with the bleeding the week before, he wanted to make sure. turns out, I am just not your ideal perfect shaped uterus owner! then we got a folder full of pamphlets, a book, and a little package from target. oh, and gave my medical history, but not andy's which seems weird. especially since, yes, he does have relatives with heart disorders and genetic disorders. ok, his sisters twins, but still, significant, yes? oh well. next time, we will mention it. next time is June 27, with Dr. Saycheck. who hopefully doesn't remember the time that my mother, andy and I were all misbehaving during Christmas Eve service, and she and her family were sitting right behind us :)

So far, no weight gain. I started the Stuart DuetDHA Rx pills last Wednesday, and they made me feel gross, so I switched to taking them at night, before bed. I am not sick at all from them anymore. SO other than those two times, and from the pills, no sickness. no boobies hurting, no cramping.

I got a giant box of maternity clothes from my SIL. they look so big. but I tried the shorts on, and there really isn't that much room to grow! eep!

I like Windsor Toile a lot. I think it would work with some of the Amy Coe sprout green colored things at Target. And the only reason I know this is because it's what my aunt registered for, for her boy. His room is sage and bright purple.

i had to go look, but yeah. she is mixing and matching that stuff, she got the crib ruffle and sheets from that set, but she is not going all out.

oh, you might want to check out patchwork blue too. it might be a little too country, but you'd get your blue and green :)

I don't know what's up with them, they are this prenatal vitamin pill and then also a omega-3 pill. they just made me feel icky and burpy, and the burps tasted so nasty, I wanted to hurl from that!

I loves me the baby updates! your so cute! what do you mean your uterus isnt shaped perfectly? is that why you were bleeding?

it had nothing to do with the bleeding, I just mean that it isn't the perfect way he wanted to feel, so he went omg! ultrasound! when really, it was nothing.

my friend has the CP toile for her son, she was deciding between that and the sage. I love me some toile, definitely very classy. though, I do like the blue and yellow as I'm partial to those colors....glad I'm not having to decide!!

Love the Toile line! It's so unisex. We're not findint out the sex, so a Sage color might work for us.

this is only our first, and we're not going to find out either. I figure I better get something to last through three kids!

Hello Mod (January 2007),

Mind if I add you as a friend? My LJ is mostly friends only, but you can also check out my pregnancy LJ over at letthelove_grow.

I love your 'Its a Surprise!' icon. Where'd you get it?

sure!! my regular journal is iamsuperkate so feel free to add that, too!

I think I got my surprise icon in family_icons... maybe it was made my cru5h? if so, its credited in my icon list. otherwise I stole it fair and square, and you can too!
