I have been too exhausted to do anything but browse the Internet. I haven’t been visiting or commenting on blogs… Or writing in my own for that matter. I’ve been one big fat blog slacker. Oh but I have an excuse… (Not that I really need one, but I kind of do so I don’t feel so bad) I’ve been SICK. Oh yes, and it’s weird being sick while being pregnant cause I’m not sure if I’m puking cause of morning sickness or cause of a stomach bug.
For the amount of puke I’ve witnessed spewing from my mouth I’m guessing it’s a stomach bug. I was worried I’d puke Spawnie up with my dinner. Then I woke up sweating like crazy, then the next moment I was freezing. I should have taken my temperature but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I imagine it’s not too bad, and I’m trying to stay hydrated. I hit 12 weeks on Friday… A milestone which now means I have around a 2% chance of miscarriage. Can I get a big WOOP!!?
We have another appointment on Tuesday and they’ll check to hear Spawnie’s heart beat for the first time. I can’t wait! And I hope all it well. I think after this next appointment I’ll be able to let out a huge sigh of relief, make an official announcement at my job, etc. I’m just praying it all goes well.
In order to calm my nerves about all of the ickyness I’m feeling I started shopping around for crib bedding I like. I first checked out Etsy and saw a few adorable designs for 4pc sets for under $200. With the skirt, blanket, sheets, bumper or whatever. But then a few friends on Twitter turned me on to JoJo Designs. I guess the are good-quality for a great price. Now I’m pretty much obsessed! I found a bunch of brand new 9 piece sets on eBay for $50.
I know some people say they won’t use it/ care/ etc. But I’ve been waiting to decorate a nursery like my whole life, so I’m gonna enjoy this! We won’t paint the room or anything so the lamps, diaper stackers, and decorations will have to add the full effect. We also have a queen bed in that room too, but it just has a white down comforter, so I need to try to get something that doesn’t clash with that.
Here’s what I love for if Spawnie is a boy (which apparently, most of you think it is):This one is by Jo Jo designs and it’s in a 9pc set for a great price! It’s my favorite I think. I think frogs are so cute for little boys.
Since a lion is my favorite animal I fell in love with this. It’s by Kidsline. The 4pc set is $99.
Penguins are my second favorite animal. A friend showed me this design and I think it’s so cute! This is by Cottontail Designs and it’s $100-$150 depending where you buy (Amazon is cheaper!)
Now for the girl designs I love! I must say I still am not TOTALLY sold on any of these like I am the frog one, but they are all pretty and very different from each other! I’m not as big on animals and teddy bears for little girls as I am for boys. All of these are JoJo Designs.
I like the bumblebee cause it’s simple and classy. But I’m feeling it’s lacking pink (my favorite color)! I love love this one!! It’s so different and I could just picture my little princess surrounded by this. While it’s original, once again, it’s lacking pink! I do love that it could grow with a toddler and kid though.This design reminds me of the way I decorated my bedroom when I was a teenager… To the T! And I STILL love it! I love that it’s girlie yet somehow a little chic at the same time.
This rose design I think is cute and classy, but I wonder if it’s too plain. I think it’s really pretty though and fit for a little princess!
And because a couple of commenter mentioned Target and Walmart I decided to add a few designs I like from those stores too!
And once again I find the frogs I like. Then Walmart:And last but not least:
So what do you think? Which one of these is your favorite? (spare me bumper debates!) Have other nursery or bedding designers you like? Please share. I’m all for affordable but if you know of a great one that’s on the pricey side still let me know, and maybe I’ll win the lotto between now and then!
