On Sunday Nate and I got up early and went out for a little brunch date at First Watch. It’s so simple but this is one of my favorite things to do with him. It makes a weekend day feel so much longer and I always love our random conversations. Plus we really love breakfast food – especially right now! We split an order of Cinnabon pancakes and I swear I died of pregnant lady happiness. After brunch we ran over to Target with all of our gift cards from the baby shower and did a little shopping for baby boy!! We got our crib mattress, a changing pad, a cute cover for the changing pad, and the little plush blooming bath tub I’ve been wanting. The crib mattress was really the last BIG item that we needed! We got it all set up in the nursery when we got home and I felt the instant relief of having another item checked off the list. Not too long after we got home my parents stopped by to bring us another gift! My Step-Dad’s parents bought us the bedside bassinet we registered for! I had originally planned to just use the pack n play in our room for a while but this little bassinet is going to make things so much easier. We’ll be able to leave the pack n play downstairs permanently and the bassinet can stay by the bed! Ahh, I can’t believe how everything is coming together. It’s very surreal!!
We went to our third natural birth class yesterday evening. We went over the different types of interventions that there are – basically all of the things I’m trying to avoid by having a natural birth. But I love that we’re going over all of the possibilities because you just never know what will happen! I feel confident that if things did go differently than what I “planned” that I would understand exactly what my options were and exactly what was happening based on my decisions. I think honestly the scariest part of giving birth is the unknown, right? Or the idea that things are going to be done TO you vs. knowing that you actually have options.
I’m so excited for next weekend! Baby shower #2 with all of our friends, UK plays in the Final 4, and we’ll have another birth class!
