The last time I was pregnant was eight years ago. I gave birth to my eldest in 2004. In the eight years since my last turn at planning for a baby, baby gear has come a long way and I am totally smitten with much of it….
I had a feeling this little one was a girl, turns out I was correct. We had a LONG wait to find out her gender because here in Italy (our military medical insurance) doesn’t cover the early gender tests via blood sample. I did have an anxious month as some blood work for genetic abnormalities came back as being at risk for Down Syndrome. Thankfully, her scan showed no soft markers, though in circumstances such ask this, the only way to know for sure she doesn’t have Down Syndrome, would be to have an amniocentesis. I decided against having an amnio preformed because regardless of what that test would reveal I wouldn’t abort this pregnancy….
I can’t express enough just how much I like BabyLegs – which is why I feel the need to tell you all about Feisty, Frugal, and Fabulous’ BabyLegs giveaway!
Baby legwarmers not your cup of tea? Get on over there and enter anyway – if you win, I’ll be more than happy to take them off of your hands!
Here’s Copper when he was just a wee little newborn wearing his first pair of BabyLegs! The great thing is – at six month’s he’s still wearing them, and will be wearing them in a year from now too!
Here’s Mo, pretending to be a monkey.
