17w3d

Oops, a day behind on the belly shot for this week. Today I'm 17w3d. Although time seems to be crawling by, I really can't believe I'm at 17 weeks already. Especially when I look at our ever-growing to-do list of things that have to get done before Apple and Banana arrive.

Here's where we're at. We've decided on and ordered two cribs and a dresser/changing table combo. The furniture came in this week, but we haven't set up pick up or delivery yet. I think we've decided on the crib bedding/nursery decor, but we haven't purchased anything yet. Now that we've decided on the bedding, I think we're ready to start looking at paint colors. I don't want to give anything away as I'd rather post pictures when it's done.

I think we've decided to go with the double snap 'n go for now and we will get a regular stroller later when Apple and Banana are old enough to sit up in the stroller.

We've decided on the hospital and pre-registered online. We still need to look into and pick a pediatrician. We also still need to decide on daycare/nanny options, find a doula, sign up and take various classes at the hospital, get a will put together, decide on car seats, put a registry together, and set up the nursery (which requires cleaning out the room, painting, and putting together furniture, etc.). Those are just the baby related to-do's. There are other things around the house that I would like to get done before the babies arrive because I'm afraid if we wait until after, they'll never get done.

Oh, and the results of my quad screen came back normal last week. I wasn't anticipating anything different, but it is still a relief.

Here's my 17w3d belly shot.

Your to-do-list will get done and what doesn't won't matter after you have your apple and banana at home! Can't wait to hear about your nursery. And your belly is looking especially cute this week!

Ooooh! You are getting organized! I was like that early on too b/c you may not feel like it in your last trimester...very smart! Just know that everything will get done and it will be great. Even if it's not perfect, are the babies really going to remember? NO! That's the best part. You're looking good too!

Denise, I'm so thrilled for you - about everything. I loved your post about telling the grandparents the sex of the twins. And wow, you are having boy/girl twins - as somone aptly said, it truly is the best of both worlds. Sorry I haven't been commenting, but I have been reading faithfully. I'm so happy for you!

Holy cow! I can't believe you're already at 17 weeks either! Beautiful belly, btw.

You are so productive!!! I feel like such a slacker! :) Can't wait to see pics of the nursery when it's all done!

It does feel like it is flying by and dragging by all at the same time, doesn't it?

nancy said...

Good call on the double snap n go. I revised my thinking. I wish I would have done that while the babies were in infant seats and then went with a side by side. Oh well. We just got a Chicco Trevi Twin that is seriously AWESOME, its really the perfect stroller for the point they are out of carseat buckets. Love the belly pic!

Oh my goodness. Your bump is so cute. So do you feel the squirming around yet?
