New Beginnings

Well, today is a new day and I'm thankful for it. It's only 3:47 but I have not been nauseous all day so far. Praise the Lord! Maybe it's gone??? I will be 10 weeks on Wednesday so it could be going away, please God! So speaking of 10 weeks take a look at this picture...the baby is getting bigger which is exciting!

I'm hoping to soon love being pregnant. I know the last 4 weeks have been really tough but it will all be worth it when that sweet baby comes along.

Anyway, I have some things I'd love your help with. Over the next month, Gregory and I will start registering. I wanted to see what you think are the essentials. Please leave a comment and give me your opinion. Even if I don't know you, I'd love and value your advice.

Thanks so much in advance :)

Here is my two cents:
Cotton mittens
Take & toss spoons, bowls, cups
Plastic bibs
Video monitor
Boppy pillow
Medela breast pump
Bouncy seat and/or swing
Exersaucer and/or jump & go
Infant car seat (Graco or Chico)
Click & go stroller

Let me know if you want me to help you register. By the way, I will have some things you can borrow.

Love you!

Oh my, I would LOVE to help you register. I spent a ridiculous amount of time researching before I had Garrett and then have lived through 2 very different babies. Here are some (what I consider) essentials:
Snap & go stroller (you can borrow mine)
Don't bother with a travel system-just get an umbrella stroller for after they outgrow the infant seat.
Bumbo (with tray)
loved the high chair that fit into a chair (more like a booster seat) Plus Fisher Price makes a portable one that's fantastic!
Lansinoh nipple cream (if you plan to nurse)
Medela steamer bags (to sterilize)
bottle drying rack
Everything that Karin said!

Hey Rach - I have a crazy list that a friend gave me and I will send it to your e-mail. We haven't registered yet - but I am going to take it with me when we do! Glad you're feeling better! Just wait till that little peanut starts moving around! It's incredible!

I will echo what the others said:

Video Monitor (for sure!)

Medela Pump-in-Style breast pump

Boppy Pillow

Cotton Pads for the changing table/crib. (These are great so you don't have to keep changing bedding)

Ultimate Crib Sheet

Sleepers with zippers, not snaps.

Lansinoh breast pads (If you plan to nurse)

Bottle drying rack

Bouncy Seat
