post #2 of 75
I went to bed around 11 last night and woke up to pee just after midnight. I did a little happy dance : on my way back from the bathroom, because it's *June* now and that means I'll be having a baby NEXT MONTH!!! Or maybe even this month. Crazy exciting!

and all I can think is, "oh crud, it's June!!" Sure I'm really over being pregnant at this point. But my dd is freakin out about all the changes (end of school year, new sibling), 2 year old ds is into everything. . he's even figured out how to open the back storm door. How am I ever going to juggle everything that I need to now while taking care of a new little one. YIKES!

Yeah, I have been pretty calm all this pg, but all of a sudden, the idea that I am having a baby next month is kinda freaking me out. For some reason it hit me when I turned 32 weeks also... Yikes! My kitchen floor is sparkling. I got down on my hands and knees with a scrub brush and gave it a good scrubbing, that it soooo desperately needed....

Whoo hooo! I'm so glad June is here!

This morning DD asked me if baby brother was coming out today. I explained that today was the first day of June, and baby brother comes out in July, which comes after June.

Busy, busy month for us!
Birthdays, anniversary, work conferences, reunions
Hopefully all the busyness will make the last few weeks go faster.
I am praying and hoping for a June baby actually.
If this baby is born on, or immediately before the EDD, we will have a huge pickle when it comes to childcare for the other kids, and DH even being able to attend the birth!
If not June, than after July 13, when my sister will be here - but it would suck to be pregnant that long...

Bemommy, I am feeling the same way!!! Just overwhelmed. My son's out of preschool, I have to throw a big jack and jill bridal shower for my friend. I already told the other bridesmaids they will have to do the bachelorette party, b/c I may or may not be able to go depending on where it is and when the baby arrives. The baby room still looks like a wreck, although I DO have all of my baby stuff, it is all physically IN this house. I just need to clean stuff and organize it... that is the problem, b/c I am so low on energy. I *thought* my n/v was finally starting to go away, haven't taken my zofran for a few days, but today I'm feeling nauseous again. UGH, I'm just miserably pregnant, been that way the entire time, but now it's worse, just due to it being close to the end and I'm just bigger, kwim? The peeing is crazy, sometimes I think I should just call it a day and wear a diaper...

Hi everyone! I am feeling beyond exhausted lately. I have also started to have heartburn....something that I NEVER had in my life (not even the pregnancy with my son). UGH! The baby is also moving but now it is seriously painful! I'm glad to feel her or him move though. I can't believe I could be holding my little one in about a month. CRAZY!

Well, I am technically due June 30th, but joined the July DDC because I figured I would probably have a July baby.. however.. I will be "legal" to have a baby in one week and one day.. when I will be 37 weeks.. I would welcome that, really, I would.

I also have a 2 year old and am overwhelmed with the thought of newborn and a 2 year old : DH works out of town 4-5 days a week, on top of it.
post #11 of 75
I am actually excited for June because it is a busy month for us and hopefully that will make time pass quickly. I still can't believe that I will be 36 weeks on Thursday.

Ds has been sick/teething for the last week and a half and he has now passed his cold onto me which has not been fun. I really hope he is the downward slide with his cold because he has been so miserable. I know those 2 year molars could take awhile to come in though. I just hope he is done with all of this before the baby is born.

Btdt and as rough as it was the time passed so quickly. DD1 was 22 months when dd2 was born and my dh is a carpenter and works 40 hours at his regular job, but works almost every night on sidejobs as well. Most of the time he gets in after the girls are in bed, but I am able to stay home because of it. Now that dd1 is 3.5 she is a big help and dd2 follows her lead so I don't feel as stressed as I did at the prospect of 2.

I suddenly have to get into overdrive! because of the recent events I will be having a baby a lot sooner than I thought, which means we have a lot of stuff to go to get ready!
Wednesday we have our appointment at the birth center, I will be having them refer me to an OB. I will have to meet with the new OB once and set an induction date (so much for forming some kind of relationship with the person to deliver my baby!). So in approximately 2 weeks or so I will have a new LO. I will know more details on Wed. of course, but this is what I am assuming the chain of events will be.
I can't wait to meet my baby, although I wish I could have the birth that I wanted. At least we will be in good hands

I know how you feel! I actually picked up a package of "Poise" pads at the store but got them back on the shelf before anyone could see me!

We are finally able to move our stuff around as the construction in our house is just about done! Yeah! That means that I can start getting the baby's room ready and the birth area set up. I am going to hit the garage sales this weekend to try and find some dressers or cabinets that we can use in our new spaces. I have a huge sewing project to finish and now that I have a dedicated area for my sewing stuff I am hoping to pound it out over the weekend.

I got my birth pool and hose/connector in the mail today! I just need a liner and some post partum stuff and we will be good to go. I can't believe it is so close already... I am 33 weeks but my midwife thinks I may go a week or two early because I never had a period between babies so we are relying on possible date of conception and the ultrasound. I am not counting on it, though, because I know anything can happen!

So is anyone preparing some meals to freeze and have ready for after the baby comes? Any good ideas for vegetarian casseroles or something else I could make? I am not much of a cook but I would like to get at least a few things made so we don't have to think too much about what to eat.

I am also starting to freak out a little bit about having 2 children under the age of 2. How the heck do you get through a day? Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed with Ds, I just can't imaging having a newborn to take care of, too. I am hoping for lots of help from friends and family. I am not opposed to begging.

Yeah June!

I have no idea, but at least we can go through it together Lolli was born 09.23.07, so you and I are in the same boat!

This is my second set of kids who are very close in age.
I actually think it was easier than with a bigger gap!
So don't worry

We are starting to make food! We have a pressure cooker and we canned about 7 cans of pinto beans that we made the other day, we are also going to make some different soups to can. Soup is easy, and my husband can make a big batch of rice that we can eat with the beans and some frozen veggies.

I think we are also going to make a big batch of veggie chili and can that.

For frozen stuff we were going to make a frozen lasagna, macaroni and cheese, some loaves of bread, a veggie "meat"loaf or two, some veggie burgers. I am still trying to think of other ideas, maybe some stuffed peppers.

There's a couple recipes here: http://www.momsbudget.com/freezerrec...anfreezer.html
Here is the veggie meatloaf: http://busycooks.about.com/od/meatle...iemeatloaf.htm

I really should.. last time I depended on others too much, and although I've had about 7 friends sign up to bring me a pp meal, I don't want to depend on them either.

If you post in the veg section, there are lots of great ideas for vegetarian meals to freeze.. plus The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook has a great selection of tasty casseroles too (and the author is an MDC mama).

And I am totally with you gals on the pee-thing. It is an emergency most of the time, and half the time I don't always make it in time

I was thinking last night I am about ready for a catheter. LOL! If I could give myself one and not have to get up at all during the night how heavenly would THAT be? LOL!

I just started today. I am making 2 casserole double recipes a week... freezing one and having the other for supper. If I do that for the next 6-8 weeks we'll have a lot of frozen meals I am using an OLD La Leche League cookbook... one from the '60s. It has some pretty darn good casserole recipes, I have to say!

Wow you all are so organized! I've also had two sets of close kids (both were about 15 months apart). It was a pretty easy transition and not at all as hard as i thought. With my first set though i had to eliminate my toddler's naps because he was so much to deal with when he woke up. Very grumpy and he cried more then the baby. Instead we did early bedtime which worked out better in the end. This time i currently have a 4 year old and a 2 1/2 year old and then a new babe so this should be interesting.

I'm trying to get ready but still too busy to do so. Also exhausted, all the time. Maybe i'll get some energy soon.
