19th Mommy Mondays

What do these things have in common?

this one would match our bedding

Full Futon

Changing Table in Cherry

Combi Pod Bouncer

 Graco Infant Carseat

1.  All of these things you can buy from CSN Stores! I'll be doing another review for them next month. Right now you can enter my CSN Giveaway over at my Scrappy Gifts site!
2. All the things we need because we're having Baby #2!
  • The headboard is needed because we just bought a mattress (we used to sleep on the floor or air bed) - a pregnant woman needs a mattress! We also need to get a frame for the mattress still.
  • I would like a futon for my toddler son. (Right now he's in a toddler bed that was converted from his crib) The style of this one is great because it kinda looks like a crib still. He moves around a lot too so I like the full size. Plus this can be converted to a sitting area when we have play group in his bedroom where all the toys are.
  • I'd like a changing table. We have a changing pad that I've put on a bookshelf, but it hangs over slightly so it's probably not as safe. The cherry color would match the crib.
  • This bouncer would be great to keep the baby in sometimes, and it looks comfy.
  • Friends gave us our last infant car seat that expired in December 2009 plus my son outgrew it fast so my MIL gave us a bigger carseat when he was 4 months that converts to a forward facing/toddler seat. It has to be Graco so it fits in our Graco Stroller.

Our son is super excited! He's understanding about the baby too. He knows that I have a baby, but he and Daddy don't have one. I made this shirt so we could share the news with people.

To see a picture of me pregnant, check out my Fashionable Fridays post. In the post, I'm 12 weeks, but currently today I'm 13.5 weeks.

6-10 weeks: nausea basically every day and throwing up once a day 3-4x a week
10-12 weeks: nausea when I have to throw up, throwing up once a day 2x a week

Lettuce seems to be a problem again for me - I can eat a little, but salads are out! Orange juice is also out. It tasted fine, but later wasn't cool. These were the same when I was pregnant with my first.
Brushing my teeth is another problem especially at night. I usually eat within a hour before going to bed so if brush my teeth at night I end up throwing up my dinner. I try to wait longer before going to bed after eating, but usually it doesn't work. Sometimes if I brush my teeth really fast, I could make it. I can't brush my tongue at all - I always gag and throw up then.
I always brush my teeth in the morning before eating though and usually am fine. About twice a week though I end up dry heaving which is worse than throwing up, but I have to brush my teeth right and at least I'm not losing any nutrients.
New this pregnancy, I can't even floss with mint floss...I can only floss with unflavored floss. For some reason the mint flavor sometimes makes me throw up if I'm flossing for a long time. Glad I have one little thing of unflavored floss. I better start looking for some more since all we have is mint.
Anyone else have problems like this when pregnant?
I know a lot of women have it way worse than me, but it seems all the people I know don't even throw up that much during their pregnancies. I'm grateful that I'm sick though because it's a good sign that the baby is doing well; I'd probably get all worried if I wasn't sick.
We're excited to have another. I was so scared about having another, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant all that worry went away for now. My husband is even more attached to this pregnancy earlier on than with our first; it's wonderful to see. He didn't get attached to the first until after he saw the gender ultrasound and later could feel the baby move.
I swear that I've been feeling this baby move, but I'm not sure if it's my imagination thinking how it felt when I felt my first moving or am I just a lot more gassy this time. The doctor assistant said the earliest people can feel a baby move is 12 weeks. I felt my first at 17 so we'll see.

I had trouble with the teeth brushing during my first pregnancy, but not with my second. I almost always threw up brushing my teeth for the first few months.

Dry heaves are just nasty and painful.... so many bad memories coming up! haha

Hope you and the new baby continue to do great. Congrats again!!

I wouls pick this headboard.

I like the color & the classic look, but would also put a more mdern sheet set and accents with it. I like to mix things up.
