Boring news is good news

All has been quiet on the home front. THANK GOD!

I was released from the hospital on Sunday afternoon after a fun two day stay on monitors, I got used to hearing his heartbeat 24/7. It's amazing how a hospital admission lowers my blood pressure, it must be because I feel I am in the safest place for this lil one. Although, I don't think Chris would have gone for another night in the ever so popular fold out Dad bed.
So since being home, CC has really perked up again and has slowly been getting back to his normal self. I had a follow up BPP ultrasound (4th ultrasound in 6 days) and he checked out perfect. My fluids are still hanging at a lower normal, but he passed the rest with flying colors.
Talk about a sigh of relief.

Chris and I started to organize the nursery, lets say it's my attempt to nest. We have found out we won't be in the new home by Dec 10th so he will for sure come home to this house for a few weeks. We sat on the floor in the tornado of baby stuff in amazement of how much we have, how much we don't know and how insane it is to feel like this is really happening.
24 more days!
Chris is going to go pick up the big dresser this week and spend the next few days setting everything up for real. The nursery at this house will keep a lot of Nolan's decor since it's there and I haven't really found anything I am looking for in the train dept. I have ideas, but can't seem to settle. So it will be fun really setting up the new nursery at the new house when that time comes.

The next 3 weeks are going to go by SO fast! I have weekly ultrasounds, appointments, NST's and MFM appointments and before we know it, CC will be here. Now if we can only settle on what we will "call" him when he arrives. We will just figure it out when we meet him, I'm sure it will be a no brainer.

Have you thought about having someone make you a quilt? I'm a huge quilter myself so that is what I would do if I couldn't find something that I liked. :) Let me know if you need some help!

The hospital has the opposite effect on me! My BP seems to always run higher there :/

I'm in the same boat with the name so I wish you guys luck with that! I can't beleive how hard its been!

Hoping these few weeks left go by quickly & you are holding your precious baby in your arms safe & sound.
