Peanut butter & apricot jelly sandwich
Instead of looking at this and saying "These are things I want but can't eat!", I'm trying to take the more optimistic road by saying "I look forward to eating these in July / August".
We've narrowed it down to two crib / dresser sets, in which our family has graciously offered to pay for. This makes things tremendously easier on us - especially with our champagne tastes. Our original plan was that we would buy the crib, dresser, and glider with a portion of our tax refund. Well, with two of those three taken care of, the glider was the only thing left. I've had a difficult time finding a glider on the babies 'r us website that didn't have several negative reviews claiming that "I'm really short and I can't rest my head on this!!! meh!!", so I expanded my search elsewhere. I asked our neighbors who had a baby boy in May where their glider was from (I'd seen it before and knew it was the exact style and color I wanted), and they said Burlington Coat Factory. Burlington Coat Factory of all places!!! I've never shopped at this store in my life. Long story short - after visiting one store then calling all over the state of Maryland, we finally found 1 store with 1 of this specific glider. My husband went to pick it up, and while it was already a good price comparatively at $350 (included ottoman), the cashier gave him a 20% off coupon! Yay us! :) And with some tickets we've sold recently and a football pool my husband partakes in, our profits more than paid for the chair.
At this point, we're 12 weeks and 3 days and I'm starting to feel better for the most part in regards to nausea and food aversions. I do still tire easily and it's difficult to get out of bed in the morning. My body tends to ache which is inconvenient. My belly is starting to get a little bigger. Today my jeans are unbuttoned and held together with a hair tie. They could be buttoned and be fine - but I have been more wary of tight pants recently.
