I know this update is going to seem like it came on the heels of last week’s update since I waited until my mid-week sonogram, but hey, 20 weeks is something to celebrate!
20 weeks always sort of sneaks up on me, but it is such a wonderful surprise! Like I said last week, I begin to finally feel like planning for baby’s arrival at 20 weeks. It’s all downhill from here, and often it goes really fast (at least it does until maybe the last month ). So, you’ll probably see me pinning things to my Pregnancy & Baby Pinterest board:
You’ll hopefully find me in my sewing room too! I always like to make a little something handmade for the new baby. Sometimes it is a simple quilt or some cute little cloth diapers, but whatever it is, it is specifically for the new baby – never owned/worn/used by another child in the household.
I also got a nursing pillow through NursingPillow.com:
The code on the graphic above gives you one for FREE (you’ll have to pay shipping, but it was so worth it!). I’ve never had a “real” nursing pillow, so I’m looking forward to trying it out!
By the way, August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. While I’ve never had any issues with being able to nurse in public, I know people who have. Honestly, breastfeeding my babies is one of my favorite parts of having a new baby, and I count it as a privilege and a blessing to do so. (If you’ve never read my article about breastfeeding Emily, I’d encourage you to do so. I’ve also written about my Breastfeeding Journey in a series of posts HERE, but it could use an update since it ended with Baby #7).
What’s your favorite part of having a new baby? I’d love to hear what things about that newborn stage are precious to you!
