Shopping and Waiting

It's possible I am a slight shopaholic. I love to shop for new clothes, decorations for the house, books, anything. Needless to say, I'm so ready to start shopping for baby!! I can't tell you how many hours I've already spent browsing amazon and babies r us and pottery barn kids, haha. Still, it's just simply to early to start a registry or go out and buy anything substantial.

I'm optimistically hopeful that we'll see a strong heartbeat at the ultrasound in two weeks. I'm definitely looking forward to knowing for sure that everything is alright and our baby is growing strong and healthy inside. Tomorrow, I'll be six weeks pregnant so the little heart should definitely be beating already!

I spend a lot of time daydreaming. Is it a boy or a girl? What will it be like to have a sweet little baby in my arms? Will he/she look like me or like George? How should I decorate the nursery? Should we buy a bigger car? It's fun to day dream, and it leads to much happier thoughts than when I start to worry about whether everything is okay or not.

Yesterday, I went in to Toys R Us to get a gift card for a friend's little boy and literally spent an hour browsing on the Babies R Us side of the store. They have so many pretty cribs and cute bedding. I stared at all the little blankets and pacifiers. I even smiled at the bottles, lol. I was like a kid in a candy store. I can't wait to start buying all those things and getting the house ready for a little one.

I think once the ultrasound is here and we see a heartbeat, I will feel a little more comfortable starting to pick things out. Please, oh please let everything be okay in there! I've definitely got the symptoms to prove it, ha! Nausea 24/7, ick. But I'll gladly take it if it's just part of growing a healthy baby. Just 12 more days until we get to see our little bean. I can't wait!


  1. I think daydreaming is way better than stressing. Can't wait to read your experience of hearing the baby's heartbeat for the first time. So exciting! Very happy for you Sarra!

  2. Very excited to hear how things go! I'd probably feel the same way you do about shopping. I'd have a hard time staying out of stores!

  3. Baby shopping is soooo much fun :) And daydreaming is better than stressing. Can't wait to hear about your little bean.

  4. Shopping for baby is going to be so much fun! I'm kind of waiting to buy to see if we have boys or girls, but come November/December I am going to be a shopoholic! Already thinking a lot about what I want...
    And nausea...ick. Sorry that is happening, although it is a good sign!
    That's great you've only got 12 more days until the ultrasound...

  5. I am waiting but I have been browsing for a very long time - this is something I totally fell in love with:

    how can i say no... I'm holding off till after the first trimester before I purchase anything, but I can window shop and dream, and knit in the meantime :D

  6. Sarra, you are an amazingly strong woman! I love to read all of your heartfelt posts and I laugh and cry with them. You are such an awesome person and God blessed you and picked you for a reason. There is a reason for everything, and there is a reason for Him picking you now. You deserve this and it is part of His plan. :) I still get a surge of glee when I think about you being pregnant! It's the most amazing feeling when in about 10-13 weeks when you'll feel that little bean kicking you!! :) A feeling I can't WAIT for you to feel! 12 days and I just know God will bless you again with the sound of a strong heartbeat...again, something that I can't WAIT for you to experience. It's amazing. I love you SO much and I'm SO glad this is happening to you and George!
