Tuesday Tidbits ~ Lucy Style

It's a huge week around the Layman household, we're counting down the hours until we find out whether precious Lucy is indeed a sweet little girl or a precious little boy! So a few quick baby tidbits while we all wait not-so-patiently...

~The OB's office nearly gave me my first pregnancy heart attack! My cell phone rang this morning at work and recognizing the dr.'s number, I quickly stepped out to answer. The receptionist on the other line proceeded to inform me that their ultrasound tech was going to be out of the office on Wednesday (cue 5 second freakout) but could I come in on Wednesday morning (cue deep exhale)! Thankfully we'll be having our ultrasound at 8:45 am which will actually give the baker more time to finish the cake...talk about a quick panic attack!

~Jennifer, my dear friend and mother of two, was incredibly generous and before heading off to a consignment store offered me some like-new baby needs!

First up, the Snoogle Body Pillow...she only used it for the last bit of her last pregnancy and it's in practically perfect condition. And she's one of my best friends, so I'm definitely not worried about using her pillow! ha! I know I'm going to get a ton of use out of this further along in pregnancy, I keep waking up in the night paranoid that I've been sleeping on my back...not to mention the slight back pains that have been appearing recently!
Next up is the Baby Einstein Activity Gym. This seriously looks like it just came off the shelf and I know it will be perfect for Baby Layman during tummy time for some great stimulation! I'm so thankful for generous friends...I got both of these things at a fraction of the cost they would have been brand new!

~I also thought I would go ahead and share the invites we sent for our gender reveal party tomorrow. We ordered them from tinyprints and I LOVE them!!! I think it's made everyone so excited for the big reveal! We're decorating in pink & blue of course & buying pizza for everyone to have a quick meal before the star of the party...the cake! We've got a few things planned but you can bet the highlight will definitely be when Nick & I cut into the cake.

~And because I just couldn't wait until the pregnancy update this week...I felt the baby move!!! Woohoo! We were driving home from dinner on Friday night and I made Nick be quiet because I felt the most indescribable feeling in my stomach! I can't even describe it to you...but there is no doubt in mind. It was such a random time but I am confident that I felt Baby Layman kick for the first time. I've felt movements a few other times in the past few days, but nothing so pronounced as Friday night...maybe it was the ice cream I had for dessert! ha!

T-Minus 12 hours until the ultrasound!!!
