Babyice is definitely…

…a BOY! I might add that the gynae also mentioned that he is quite well endowed *giggle* He must get that from my side of the family. Kidding. Seriously.  Babyice is not a shy one, the gynae was able to tell in 30 seconds flat. He also encircled our boy’s bits on the scan, wrote ‘SEUN’ (Afrikaans word for ‘Boy’) and initialled next to it. He says he’s so sure, he’ll sign for it. The doctor also said that my placenta and amniotic fluid is looking great and that Babyice has a perfect environment to grow in. Babyice is currently between 13 and 14 centimetres (that’s almost half a ruler!) and weighs approximately 150 grams. Now I can start taking the labels off the blue stuff I’ve bought. The only person with access to a scanner in our building will only be in on Friday, so I’ll post scan pics then.
I’ve been stressing about all the big ticket purchases that are required and getting the room sorted out to some degree. If you saw how the room looked you might understand why I’m so freaked out about it. I should take a picture. Basically we’ve stacked everything that would normally be put in a garage into this room. From Christmas decorations to a huge model boat that my grandfather passed on to Rudi (which he has barely touched) to old books, tools and all sorts of odds and ends. I haven’t gone through my clothes in ages and really need to get rid of any excess that I might be hoarding to make space for Babyice. Even the few things I have now don’t really have a proper place as the shelf that I started storing Babyice’s things in is filled from corner to corner.
The nightmare room aside, I finally got my bum into gear and registered with Discovery. After work today we’re going to go and pick up my goodie bag and discount vouchers. Once we’ve determined what we can get discount on we’ll be looking specifically at a car seat. Nellie has already scoped out an awesome pram at a very good price for me and she also helped me find our camp cot. I ordered it yesterday from Baby and Company and am just waiting for it to be delivered. How cute is this?

Like Leebeesa, Nellie has a great eye for bargains and since she has recently had a baby of her own her memory is still fresh about where she found her best buys. Now my biggest worry really is getting a car to put my car seat in!  For those who don’t know, this is what I drive:

My car is just a different colour. See why it won’t work? A pram will never fit in the boot and the car has no back doors! It’s already difficult getting in and out the back yourself, I can’t imagine having to haul a baby in and out the back. I’m just hoping that I’ll be able to trade my car in. It’s in pretty decent shape and only has 56 000km on the clock, even though it is 3 years old. Wish me luck, ok?
Sorry about the spacing on my blog. It seems to be broken again. Will get someone to check it out.
