In true project management fashion (I have started thinking of the whole pregnancy as a project), here is a status update

  • We are a mango this week, today at 18 W and 5D (last week we were a sweet potato)
  • The hubby has purchased a portable AC (for us to be comfy in NYC’s Heatpocalypse) and track lighting – he has installed the AC, the track lighting is waiting for the weekend.  I am so happy to be married to a guy who knows his way around home repairs/installs – add to that he’s gorgeous too :p  Anyways, buba and I now sleep very well on our sleep number bed with 4ooTC sheets, silk pillowcases (made by my mom, thanks mom!), and perfect 74degree temperature.
  • We find out in 5 days what buba will be 🙂 – The hubby has always said that it looks like it will be a girl, because I am getting prettier by the day.  I am not quite sure that’s true, but I am sure that he is the sweetest guy in the world and I am the luckiest woman I know :).  Also, yesterday, one of my colleagues said that she is predicting I am having a girl (she’s had two babies, and got the gender right both times).  So if I am having a girl, buba when you read this someday, I am making a conscious effort to dress her in neutral colors, or blue and whites stripes, or red and white stripes, anything with stripes really, yellows, greens, but NOT bubblegum pink.  Definitely NOT.  If buba turns out to be a boy, then no issues 🙂
  • Incidentally, I am wearing bright pink today.  Uncharacteristically colorful for me.  Come to think of it, I have worn a lot of reds this week.  Perhaps its on account of my comfy red flats, or the red coral bracelets that my mom sent me (to wear for good health), or the halfway present that the hubby got me, which is the brooch with a dangling red heart in the photo above.  Also, on the bus this morning, I was looking at the various designer collections on the app (which, since getting the iPhone 4 has  become my favorite app), and found myself again uncharacteristically drawn to the colorful and quite floral Fall 2010 Couture Collection from Dior (below are some pics).  So now I think, perhaps buba is a girl, with my current odd attraction to feminine styles and colors.  Hmmm, five more days.
