i had my first doctor’s appointment today! we did an ultrasound and found out i am officially 7 weeks, which is a week earlier than I thought–I think this will put my due date around June 22nd! i should’ve figured i was 7 weeks and not 8 though–morning sickness just hit this week, and it hit me at 7 weeks last time too (though harder last time–so maybe it won’t be so bad this time?).
also, i am not having twins, and Baby’s heartbeat is strong. it is amazing how tiny they are at this stage–tiny as a blueberry!
the night before the first doctor’s appointment, i had the compulsion to rearrange zu’s room. now this compulsion has been growing in the back of my mind all week–i have been daydreaming about creating a to-consignment pile, for new-baby pile and to-good-will pile.
well i couldn’t wait any more and just had to do it last night! zu’s room is rearranged so it can be used as a playroom as well as her bedroom–her room is the largest in the house so that was not hard to do. all the large toys her grammie brings her now have a better home than our living room.
we do believe though that our children do not necessarily need to be regulated to their one room in the house–we want them to be comfortable in the common areas with us, it is their house too!–so i left her simple white toybox and a basket of books in the living room and a small basket of toys in the den. the majority of her toys are going to live in her room, and whatever she has outgrown will go in a bin at the bottom of her closet.
Ah, it feels so good to have organized! it was hard to go to work today when all i can think about is organizing and cleaning. bryan tells me its far too early for nesting–but looking back (way back!) from when i was 7 weeks with zuzu, what was i doing? NESTING!
