The Pregnancy and Baby Fantasy List

Well, I am 6 and 1/2 months pregnant now and visibly pregnant and will be this way for the next little while. In the meantime I have conjured up some baby and pregnancy fantasies. If I had the money and means I would love to have these items and Charlotte and Harriet might enjoy them as well. So I thought I would share.

An Old-Fashioned Pram:

It just looks pretty!

Books from my Doula Reading List to Keep me Busy:

My Reading List books to complete include:
Overcoming Postpardum Depression and Anxiety: Sebastien
The Birth Book: Sears
Nurturing the Family: The Guide for Postpardum Doulas

The Infant Insert for the Ergo:
Due to the size of Harriet we will require an insert for the Ergo Sling we have.

Retails for about $18.00 and can be found at Extraordinary Baby Shoppe.

The Yoga Mat and Unlimited Yoga Classes:
During my 4th month of pregnancy I attended a yoga class at Rama Lotus Yoga Centre on Gladstone. I had held back on attending yoga for two reasons: 1) my mind races so quickly with so many thoughts, I didn't think it would ever be calm 2) yoga is so trendy now and I didn't want to follow the craze. Well, I went and LOVED IT! I fell asleep during the class!

Allen had purchased me 5 classes from the studio and I would love to get a mat to carry around. I also have a Postpardum video which I intend on using after Harriet's birth and a mat would be ideal for the new apartment. A mat with a cute organic or buddhist design would be awesome.

Mat Retails for $20. Classes Retail for Too Expensive!

The Belly Cast:
With Charlotte's pregnancy we thought about the belly cast, but just never got around to it. This time I definitely do not want this opportunity to pass me by. Whether we buy a do-it-yourself kit or get it professionally done by Julie Keon from Ottawa Belly Casts (http://www.ottawabellycasts.com/), we are getting it done. I envision a beautiful cast (no hands or arms visible) with bike parts around the womb. Could be cute!
Do-it-yourself kit Retails for $50.00
Custom Made for $195 without artistic design.

Play Tent:
This lovely design was found on etsy.com made in one of my fave places - Amsterdam. The design is simple, precious, and sweet with vintage fabrics. I can so picture Harriet and Charlotte having a blast in their fort together. Ah..sisterly love!!

Retails for $215 USD.

The Bummis Training Pant:
When Harriet arrives it would be great to have Charlotte potty trained. We would like to continue using cloth diapers and these Bummis pull-up training pants are exactly what we are looking for. The producct is tried and true in our home. We can't live without them (but we could live without poopy diapers).
The M Coat:
This is a 3 in one coat for the winter to last through pregnancy, post-pregnancy and to carry a slung baby in the winter. Ideal for Canadian mamas. Green colour is a bit puky...I'd go for black. Retails for approx. $398 (Uh...are you kidding?)
