21 weeks and Nursery Furniture

This week has been pretty exciting, I got to order the new furniture for the nursery. I guess for me, that makes it start feeling even more real! We have started cleaning out the nursery (the Old Office) and have picked out paint colors for the room. We are going to do the walls sage green, and the wall right behind the crib chocolate brown. I am so excited. Here is the furniture we bought for the new baby's room. These pictures are from the website. Both pieces will be cherry (the color of the crib in the picture below). I scored a GREAT deal on both of these, one I couldn't pass up. I got both of the pieces for 50% off during a sale (actually during a company misprint, that they honored). YAY!!

We decided to start the nursery with gender neutral bedding. We will keep this bedding for awhile until we decide to go with a more gender specific bedding. The bedding we picked out is super cute, this is the comforter (which we didn't get), but the bumper looks just like it. The crib skirt is sage and chocolate brown dots...super cute. Below are a couple of options we have picked out if it's a girl and one if it's a boy. I think both are adorable! :)

And that brings me to the infamous belly pictures. First of all, on a good note, I lost 2 pounds this week. So I am thinking the scale was off last week. That means I am only up 1 pound from 2 weeks ago, putting my total weight gain so far at 2 pounds. I am pretty excited about that. I have been feeling movement a little bit, since my placenta is anterior (in front) it is harder to feel, but I am starting to feel it more and more. Everytime I feel this baby move I remember how blessed I am to be carrying this child.

And here is the bare belly picture, I feel like I may have finally popped out! :)

One final stick with our surprise theme, Josh and I have decided on names. We are set on our boy's name, and have our girl's name narrowed down to two. We are super excited. We decided to keep our names a secret for a couple of reasons:
1) We don't want to hear any feedback on our choices
2) We aren't sure which girl name we want to use yet, so if it's a girl, we want to wait to see our little girl before we name her.

So...come May, there will be LOTS of surprises! :)

Also check out the header of my blog and take a guess on who this little baby is.

I love the minty-ish green/black set you have picked out! Love it!

We did the same thing with the name thing. No one knew his name until he was born! However, we did know he was a boy :)

Cute stuff!! I think it's great that you're keeping the names a secret. I HATE it when people feel the need to given their opinion on a parent's name choice. I'm sure your choices are beautiful!
