State of the uterus, and first baby purchase!

I'm officially into my fourth week and there are not enough words to describe my emotions.  On one hand, I'm thrilled, hopeful, and in full on baby plan mode.  On the other hand, I'm nervous, worried, and afraid that something bad will happen.  It's like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Life is just about perfect right now and I feel like I'm too blessed.  I keep reminding myself that it's all up to God, and to trust in his plan- whether it's what I want or not.  I think I have prayed more in the last week than I ever have in my life.

Physically, sometimes I feel pregnant, other times I could almost forget I am.  I haven't had any morning sickness yet, just a few "uggh, my tummy doesn't feel so well" when I go too long without eating.  I never used to be a big breakfast person- the extra sleep was worth more, but now I HAVE to eat something.  We went to the store yesterday and stocked up on pregnancy friendly food- spinach, cucumbers, pears, bananas, lean protein, berries, yogurt, eggs- we even bought a new blender so I can make smoothies.  My boobs are sore (tmi?) and not just when I poke them (definitely tmi haha).

I also think I'm developing pregnancy brain, as I forget things much faster than I ever did before.  I've not put on any weight yet, but at times I feel like I'm already getting a pooch.  Maybe it's just bloating, but my pants seem to fit tighter.  When I tell Husband this, he sweetly tells me it's too early to be getting a belly.  I sweetly tell him maybe it's twins.  Seems to shut him up haha.

We bought our first baby furniture yesterday too!  We're not going to open it for quite awhile yet but it was actually the dresser I had in mind (and I've been looking at baby furniture for months) AND it was $100 off.  We can always return it (I heart Walmart), and we couldn't pass up that good of a deal.  Here tis:

We plan to put the changing pad on top and have it be our changer as well.  I love the dark wood, and you can choose to have the drawers, or keep them open.  I think we might keep the top one open and put in a basket for easy to reach stuff.  What was your first baby purchase? Did any of you see a baby belly start to show this early or am I crazy?


  1. I've bought a baby gro (girly, I'm banking on a girl.) and I talked my sweet Hubs into buying some bottles over the weekend :) I'm 16 weeks btw! Congrats!!

  2. The first thing I bought was a Train Nightlight at Pottery Barn Kids - the day I found out it was a boy. :)
    My pants got "uncomfortable" pretty fast...

  3. Love that dresser! I am impressed... I haven't bought a single thing yet :)

  4. My first purchase was a crib. It was difficult to choose from a lot of design, materials, and budget as well.
