How am I supposed to prepare for a baby, when I do not know a thing about the lil critters?

We ventured to the big city and registered at THE baby store. It was a challenge to say the least. Who knows, except seasoned parents, what is the right gear to get. Guess I'll have to rely on the "trial and error" method. Something I don't like to rely on. I'd rather (wouldn't everyone) be prepared. But I've found out that this venture is something that I can or couldn't ever prepare for.

All my anxieties on the table, this has been amazingly uneventful. I go to the dr when I'm supposed to. I haven't been too obsessive over my internet searching and book reading. I've found great comfort and peace with the funnier types of preggo books and articles. I've learned thus far that I'm not in control of this ride, its all in God's hands. I just have to learn to hold on to Him tighter!

Its also funny that Angel is nesting and preparing more than I am. He is all about the gear, room, etc. Got to get it DONE, NOW!! I'm more like, Ummm it will happen, whenever! And if it doesn't, oh well. Maybe my instincts haven't kicked in yet?

I haven't written much, truthfully, its been really uneventful. I'm getting bigger around the waist, but as of 27 weeks and 5 days, I've gained 20 pounds. The drs seem to be pleased. Lets see if I can squeak this one out with minimal weight gain. I had some sleepless nights awhile back, I couldn't sleep past 3am. I just take every day as it comes. Thanking the Lord for our wonderful miracle. I had my 2nd 1 hr GTT last week. I go on Thursday for my appointment to see how that went and after that, I start going every 2 weeks! CRAZY! None of my symptoms have been horrible. I've got that figity leg thing, that they show all the commercials for on tv. It starts about 8pm. Mainly, I just walk or stand and it subsides when I calm down to go to sleep. I can't believe I'm on the brink of being in the third trimester. It feels like yesterday that Angel and I were wheeling into the "transfer room".

Oh, I am so happy that things are uneventful! Sounds like you are doing great as far as weight gain. I, too, share the anxiety of getting everything "ready." I have no clue what I am doing!

Good to hear from you!! ((HUGS))

Wow, time is flying by. 27 weeks already - too cool. I'm glad your weight gain is in check, and you are slowly getting ready. I'd have no idea what to buy either. You'll figure it out as you go along!

P.S. - I just did get wheeled out of the transfer room last week!

You sound very is overwhelming to bring a baby into your life. The thing to remember is that the baby is going to be overwhelmed too. Its kinda neat, because you are on a learning curve to be a parent, and they are on a learning curve to being a human being!

As for gear, you really don't need too much...just a place for baby to sleep, food for the baby, diapers/wipes and a few clothes and a car seat. All the rest can wait--even the nursery!

You'll do fine!

Happy 27 weeks!
