I ordered our baby crib yesterday! Is that serious business or what!? We should be getting it in 7-14 business days and I am so excited!
We ended up ordering the Storkcraft Tuscany 4-in-1 in Oak. It’s kind of funny because I did a lot of research on different cribs and had another one picked out. Then, one day, I went to a Babies R Us and LOVED the way this one looked. I decided right then and there that it’s the one I wanted. (I did go home and research this specific crib (DUH!) and I was so excited to see that it had great reviews across the board.) Woohoo! Does that ever happen to you? You’re making a big purchase and you do your research and you think you know which one you’re getting and then all of a sudden your mind changes and you go with something completely different? It happens to me ALL THE TIME.
This is the crib I was originally going to get:
It’s the Da Vinci Parker Crib that I had originally seen on Wayfair.com but is apparently not sold anymore. I love wood tones so I knew I didn’t want a black or white crib. I loved the dark wood on this crib and the curvy front and back. It even came with a little rolling drawer that you can kind of see underneath the crib. I read reviews that the drawer was a bit flimsy but that didn’t bother me too much. I liked the way the crib looked and that it had good reviews.
Instead we went with the light crib with the sleigh back and I really love it. Let’s look at it again:
Love! I didn’t want to pay more than $200 for a crib and this crib was $230, so not too bad. I think all cribs convert to full sized beds nowadays, but you have to get the conversion rails. I haven’t gotten those yet but I’m contemplating it.
Any suggestions/advice on that?
In other news:
Today, 10/31 (yes, Halloween), I had my thirty week pregnancy appointment!
I got a shot in both arms. =[ Random fact about me – I don’t know why but I’m terrified of needles! I was getting myself so worked up over having to get the flu shot that I was hot and sweaty. I was seriously ready to cry! Needles freak.me.out. When I got called back I told the nurse that I was scared and that I’m a baby and that if I cried just don’t laugh at me – lol! She did my flu shot so easily and it didn’t hurt at all! I asked her if my TDAPP (whooping cough) shot would feel like that and she said, “If I do it it will” so I said, “Do it now!” (I was going to wait until my next appointment to get the TDAPP because TWO SHOTS IN ONE DAY!?!?) Since she did my flu shot so well I signed the TDAPP paper and got it over with. When I told my SIL she said, “Now you’re going to be sore in both arms.”. Oops, didn’t think about that. Oh well. =]
According to the doctor, Peanut is measuring on time and his heart beat is nice and strong! Now I have to go to the doctor every two weeks – opposed to every four! Delivery is coming soon!! Someone hold me.
After my appointment I decided I was going to treat myself to Starbucks for being such a big girl about getting my shots and not crying. I went through the drive thru and when I got to the window to pay the lady told me “it was on them” and to have a good day! SWEEEEET!

Ewwww…shots. I hate those. I’m skipping the flu shot, but the doctor said I should expect the Rhogam shot soon.
Woohoo for free Starbucks!
I don’t normally get the flu shot, I haven’t gotten it in YEARS. But since it was recommended and is for baby, I got it. I’m just glad it didn’t hurt! I think I built it up too much in my head which is kind of a good thing. =]
Free Starbucks is the best Starbucks!
I wouldn’t worry about your arms hurting. The only shots that have left me with a sore arm were tetanus.
Good to know! I remember getting my tetanus shot when I was living there before I started school. It did hurt the next day!
