Baby Mania

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

I am about to fall asleep at 8:35 on a Friday night, but for some reason I felt like I needed to write something.

Somehow in the last 24 hours, I have acquired for the baby a swing, stroller, bouncy seat, and promise of a carseat, Boppy, and exersaucer. Holy cow. And Mr. V and I are probably buying a crib tomorrow at the consignment sale at church. I feel a little insane. 1. We don’t have room for this stuff! AHHH! 2. I am only 10 weeks pregnant and so in a way I am scared. There are all sorts of tales about not buying until you are done with the first trimester. In some places they don’t buy anything until the baby is actually born. So you don’t jinx anything. The doctor made me feel very positive that everything was fine and I had no reason to be worried, but of course I am worried anyway. As long as I am sick, it actually makes me feel better because I know something is going on.

Amanda recently posted about how having a baby is a great picture of faith. During this time when I am not showing and can’t feel the baby, I just have to believe it’s hanging out in there, getting bigger like it should, its little heart beating happily. A great thought.

OK, now I’m really exhausted. YAWN!

  1. Pah, don’t let those superstitions get to you. What will be will be and I think you’ll be just fine.

    For some reason, there are people out there who enjoy putting worry in the minds of newly pregnant women. It’s like hazing in college.

    This is a wonderful time in your life and you should just soak up every moment and revel in the glory of impending motherhood. Pregnancy provided me with some of the best months of my life, even when I felt like doo-doo.

    You’ll be fine!

  2. Hey! I just realized I don’t have you bloglined! I’m doing it now…

    Anyway, I just wanted to share a verse with you that I CLUNG to while I was pregnant with Lydia.

    It’s Exodus 23:25-26…
    Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and NONE WILL MISCARRY or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.

    At my first ultrasound (with Lydia) they told me I miscarried. It was HORRIBLE. I blogged about it…let’s see…here it is:

    I’m rambling and realizing this post is from like 2 weeks ago, but just wanted you to know that God is already intimately acquainted with your baby!
