Almost half way and I think we found our crib

4 months... I am still in disbelief that we have made it this far... it's starting to finally feel real. This past weekend I made 15 weeks, 15 weeks!!! Our next goal is to make it to 25 weeks. We are taking baby steps. I have been feeling really good, no more evening nausea, luckily I was only hurled over the toilet once since the beginning of this pregnancy. And I think I felt the little on yesterday, but its too early to know for sure.

At our two last appointments the both doctor's told us that it looks like a boy but they were not able to get a good enough shot because he was moving to much. Here are a few u/s pics from our last appointment
The first one is a but shot from his back -

And the second one is a profile pic.. but do you see that little thing poking out???

I have started putting ideas together for the nursery and think I have finally found the crib that I am in love with..I have been searching for cribs since the day we saw a heart beat knowing it was not going to be an easy task. I have an idea on what I want but I knew it was either not going to be available in the color that I wanted or it was going to be $1k - $2k, which is WAY over our budget. All the baby store's and department store's that we have gone to we have not been able to find anything that we like... either the bed looks too big and bulky, or it looks like a thrown for a king... just not our style. I want something clean lines and does not have a backboard that looks like an adults bed. And we are not interested in the convertible options, hopefully in 2-3 years we will have our second child and we will be able to recycle this crib. So with out Further audei let me introduce the crib that I ***hope*** we can buy... The Sparrow Crib made by Oeuf (found here). We would go with the white option

It is a little.. ok ok A LOT over our price range but I'm thinking long term... It is so so so beautiful. I saw it in person and fell in love. For the rest of the room I am going to really really stick to my budget and savage other items from the house. I am eliminating the changing table (not a fan of so much furniture in a room) and will buy the Hemned Ikea Dresser and use it as a changing table as well (ha already saving some money!).

Since we live in South Florida and are boaters, what better idea that a nautical theme nursery for our little boy. Here is a design board that I have created to have an idea of how the room will go together:

Happy Friday! Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

Love the crib, and especially love the changing-table-on-the-dresser idea. We have that same dresser....just watch out for the bottom of the drawers bending....I've had two drawers that had to be superglued back in place because the clothes got too heavy. And what cute ultrasound pics! :)

Thank you! Silver Rose thank you for your input. I'm going to make sure i try not to put too many heavy things towards the bottom drawers so that they last as long as possible. Maybe when we install the dresser we can add some adhesive so that we do not have that problem in the future. thank you!

I am so excited for you!!! I've been thinking about you a ton because I haven't seen you posting. I'm so glad things are going well. Little boys are a blast!
