I can't believe we are at 20 weeks and halfway through the pregnancy! Last night we made our first purchase with a Graco Lauren crib (on sale for $140 including shipping, woot!) and I've started doing a lot of work in the nursery. Today has been lots of cleaning and sorting and throwing and donating, whew! I have the closet almost completely cleaned out though and managed to free up 4 containers that we can now use for useful items instead of the random stuff that they were holding. I also have a huge box of stuff to give away/donate and am trying to convince myself to get rid of even more. I'm a super packrat and I find it really hard to get rid of stuff, so the big box is a huge step for me. Items either have an emotional attachment (like the mirror my first bf gave me, why am I keeping that again? It went in the box today!) or goes into the "I'll use it one day category" (like the endless pairs of size 5 pants that were just waiting for me to use the fabric, they also went into the box to be given to a quilting group).
My awesome husband called and arranged for us to be registered in our childbirth class so we should get confirmation for that tomorrow, and then I just need to register for the nursing class as well. I asked Scott if he really wanted to go to the nursing one because I know that's not exactly comfortable for guys and could just take my mom. He goes, "I want to know everything you are going through, emotionally and physically. I want to be able to help you in any way possible so I will be there." Awww. I've got such a good husband.
I also scored some awesomeeee clothes deals at Motherhood Maternity. They had a "buy one get one free deal" on any item on clearance, which was about 70% of the store! I managed to walk out with 2 pairs of dress pants (originally $40 each) and 2 gorgeous shirts (originally $30 each) for a grand total of $40. I also got a pair of jeans and an every day shirt at Gabriel Brother's for just $9.00. Sweeeet!
