Ugh, who knew that a baby could possibly be so fussy. No, she isn't here yet. But I've been forewarned that babies often don't like the bottle you buy. So I purchased three different bottles all meant to help prevent colic. I was a colicky baby and my mother thought she'd go nuts with trying to feed me.
From what I've read, even though I'm going to attempt to breastfeed, I'll need about 6 to 8 four ounce or 250 ml bottles. I have the Avent gift set I received at my shower. For me it is my preferred brand but who knows what baby Hiccup will like. Today I ordered the Dr. Brown gift set and a single 250 ml Comotomo bottle. I did put more bottles on my Amazon registry but I'll not know what she prefers for a bit. I'm going to try to hold off on bottle feeding the breast milk until about week three. But that all depends on when my milk comes in and the amount that does come in. Still if I can't breast feed for some reason the bottles won't go to waste. I'll be needing them for sure.
J managed to get the infant car seat, Britax B, installed correctly and inspected over the weekend. The fire department did tell him that he has too many potential projectiles in the car. I've been telling him that very thing for years! I guess it takes someone besides a family member for him to finally listen?
I've lost more weight. Ugh, is it so hard to keep weight on? I keep see-sawing about a two pound weight loss and regain and today again it is a weight loss. I'm within a pound of my pre-FET weight right now.
Tomorrow I go to see the Perinatologist in Savannah. Thursday I see the OB at Winn Army Medical here at Ft. Stewart.
Thursday morning Balfour Beatty workmen will finally be showing up to start the closet project. I might just be having two decent closets in less than two weeks if all goes well. I'm not going to hold my breath as I'm still waiting on the new bathroom vanity door to show up and it has been a month since those were ordered!!!
Yes, they know I'm pregnant and that I want to get the nursery organized soon. They know I'm high risk and can't live with the paint fumes. But honestly they don't care. They get their rent money and they have to be called daily to keep on their asses about the work orders or so I've been told by numerous residents.
Oh and I talk to the neighbors while doing yard sales. This weekend I picked up a Johnny Jump Up for only 25 cents. It just needed to be washed and it looks practically new. If I see any bottles at the yard sales I'll be sure to get them but so far no luck. I've only been able to pick up a sterilizer. However I did get 12 nice pieces of baby clothing including jackets for only $8. I thought for sure with the holiday weekend there would be more yard sales but I guess this installation doesn't want to bother with them. Babies grow too darn fast to buy everything brand new for them.
