I had my birth kit by 32 weeks... But I was nuts and had a feeling the baby would come early... And now I'm term (36 weeks) tomorrow and facing high BP/possible pre-e so it's possible I may be urging baby along... LOL. I keep telling the baby that they can come on Thursday. I'm on bedrest now though for the BP and so my house is NOT ready... I have a list... Just need family to help me with said list... LOL. I'm doing some time up doing some light stuff but mostly sitting and laying down... Sigh.
We ran out test run on the pool Friday after my MW put me on bed rest and said baby can now come and be born at home (and I'm measuring HUGE too so we think baby is likely big). The birth supplies are set and ready... Just my house needs to be cleaned...
Ha! just realized I sound totally non-AP (swing, stroller, co-sleeper), but I washed my slings first and we have never actually used our co-sleeper except to keep a baby from rolling out of our bed onto the floor. That is why it needs to be washed- its all dusty.
Also wanted to add that my mom will pick up my kids when I go into labor, although I have explained the process to them just in case I have a quick labor or it goes so smoothly we keep them here. I don't think my oldest would handle it very well and I am not really interested in trying to maintain control just for his sake.
