In an attempt to cheer Shazam and I up on Friday night we went to BRU to order our crib. It was not the uplifting experience we were hoping for. Online the crib is listed as in store only. Not a problem...or so we thought. The nice young man in the furniture department couldn't even find a item number to look it up. It seemed that there was no it.ali s.candi to be found in the area. No problem we thought. A crib road trip could be fun plus Shazam has time to do it now. Alas my search this morning found that the crib can not be found from NJ to Maine. Of course the crib is exclusive to BRU so we can not get it anywhere else. It has even disappeared from the manufacturer's website. I am pretty sure it is going to be a no go with that crib so we are looking at some different options. It seems that all the cribs I like are either out of stock or discontinued. We are very frustrated. The front runner currently is the Da.vinci Baby Miro Mercer two tone. It is not drop sided but I think I am just going to have to let that go. The one thing that I am a little bummed about is that the dresser is not a long one. I think it will be fine and there is a tall dresser so if we find we need more storage we can buy that later. With the built in storage in the room I think we will be fine. Of course it is not available at BRU right now (surprise, surprise). It is also not in stock on several other sites. I think aAm.azon has it in stock so perhaps we will order it this week.

We are starting week 23 tomorrow and I am happy to be moving through the second trimester. In a few weeks we will be on the home stretch which is pretty surreal to me. Baby G is moving around more and more and there have been several alien moments where my belly is jumping all around. I am feeling good but very hungry this weekend. I need to slow down on my sweets. I have done such a good job with eating so far but I have fallen off the wagon a bit. I am cut off from excess sugar for the next week. I had a major cake craving today and my wonderful wife got me some. Now I am all sugared up and ready for my healthy lunches and dinners for the week. I promise Shazam I will be a good healthy pregnant lady!

In addition to my healthy eating I am happy to say that I will be able to get into prenatal yoga twice this week. I go to free classes at De.stination Ma.ternity and the Saturday class was always overbooked. I could only get in every other week. Now many of the woman in the class have delivered their babies so there are not as many ladies trying to get into class. They also added a class on Tuesday evenings. So I got to go twice last week and I will go twice this week. I really feel the difference when I get to go to yoga and I know from experience that going more than once a week really makes a difference in your practice. So if I can make time to also take a few long walks this week I should be feeling a bit more fit and healthy.

Here is the current crib of choice.

Sorry about the crib hassle. I like this choice though--very contemporary and chic--just like Baby G's mamas.

Good luck on the crib hunt.. I went to my first prenatal yoga class last Saturday, and LOVED it! I had to drive 35 minutes to get there, but I'm going to try to commit to once a week. My little girl kept moving around after the class so I think she liked it as well!

Only a few days left of school! Thank goodness b/c it is getting harder to keep up with the kids.
