Preparing For Baby - My First Box of Goodies

It's hard to believe I am currently into my 17th week of pregnancy; boy does the time sure go by fast!  I am finally starting to look it more each day (depending on the shirt that I wear) but to be honest I am still getting used to the idea that I will be holding a baby in little less than five months.  I feel like I have had an extremely easy pregnancy so far (I’m currently knocking on some wood) and the 12-13 week mark I started to get my energy back. I also began to experience this deep, deep hunger (along with the need to pee every 10 min) that I have never felt before. 

Although we have not made any purchases on baby items yet, I have already been able to collect a few practical items thanks to my sister and nearby cousin.  My sister sent along a cute ‘pregnancy must have’ box that contains the items above, and my cousin has gifted me with numerous items that her little baby can no longer fit in.  I am very thankful for the lovely gifts that have been given to me so far as I know that a baby will require many more items in the nearby future.

    Those ball massagers are awesome, I've got one that I picked up that helps when my shoulders and back get tense.

    And, while I've never been pregnant and haven't used the mama bee belly butter I do know that Burt's Bees is an awesome company. I buy a lot of foot cremes and chapstick from them!

    Looks like a good start to the baby stuff. Just wait a few more months and the urge to pee will be even worse, LOL.

    Belly butter!! That's so cute I can't take it. I want some for my belly too! :)

    That shirt looks so comfortable! What's that diaper rash cream at Target with the funny name?

    Have you been picking out names yet?!
