I *finally* got them yesterday. I took one out and it looks pretty cool. Kinda like the old Adiri nursers I have in a way, but the nipple part is softer. I don't know if we'll even ever actually use them, but they're there just in case.

Ugh, I've updated my list but I still have a long way to go. Yikes.

I have heard those binders or wraps are bad for prolapse does anyone know if that is true? My cervix was a bit prolapsed after my last baby so now that it is back to being high, I am hoping to have no prolapse at all after this birth.

I have a mild prolapse, though not cervical. There is a recent belly binding thread with instructions on how to properly bind so as to support the pelvic organs to actually prevent prolapse in general. That is what I will be doing.

Actually the Tupler technique is good for prolapse. Lose Your Mummy Tummy.. I forget the name of the website.

With my daughter I felt like wrapping my belly in an ace bandage... I had never heard of binding before this pregnancy, lol. It would have helped. I really want to get one of the Tupler wraps and a binder.

I'm really not impressed by the Glamourmom Transition tank I got. The medium seems too small for me. I always wear a small or medium in clothes. My boobs are squished tight so it almost looks like I'm flat (they're D's!) and the shirt part just barely covers most of my stomach. Plus the nursing bra latch keeps coming undone by itself. That could be bad...

I rearranged (most) of the furniture, put up the new furniture, cleaned baby clothes and diapers and put them away, added some things to the birth box, packed up an emergency car birth kit minus a couple things I still need, worked on my birth binder, cut out the fabric for the baby wipes and an upcycled wool sleep dress, dealt with fall clothes, and sanitized the baby bouncy seat.

I did not get everything on my to-do list done this weekend, but swelling takes precedence. *sigh*

I made a huge list of things to get done in the next 8 weeks. Huge! And so far I made a curtain for the nursery out of a quilt, made DD a jacket, made curtains for out bedroom, and cut down sheets for DD. Did I mention how random and huge my list is? But I need to also make some wool sleep sacks for the little one. Our upstairs is freezing cold. But I need to order the wool since my fav knitting shop closed down and I just don't love the other nearly as much.

I bought the birth pool, a few more birth supplies, new binder, a few shirts and pants for post-baby me, baby socks, diaper pail, baby soap, all the etc. stuff.

I also organized (almost done!) my birth binder, got the car kit set up minus cord clamps I'm waiting on, and did a bunch more stuff I can't remember now.

I'm working on all the things that need sewn and realized time was short, so I ordered a diaper bag (from LL Bean-just a zippered tote).

You've been productive, eh?

Not as much as I need to be! I'm waaaay behind on my big to do list (not all the stuff is on here-mostly household stuff). Just trying to get it done before 36 weeks in case my edd is off like the u/s said (though I don't trust them much).
post #133 of 144
OK. Please don't tell me I am the only one with a huge list that gets longer by the day. I have stalled on collecting birth kit stuff. I mean I have the kit just not the other 70,000 things on a separate list.

I am also nesting- and by nesting I mean I am trying to get my wreck of a house in order. I finally have struck inspiration for the living area and so I am going to paint and decorate- finally. But before I can do that I need to finish painting the trimwork in my kitchen and scrub it all with a brillo pad. Then paint the cupboards in the pantry (flat white and finger prints- an ugly combo). I caulked my windows and have about half of them covered in plastic and I have the liners for my new curtains made- but now think painting is in order before finishing the curtains. Oh and I need to make a wall quilt for this horrid wall inbetween the dining and living room.

And this is just the new stuff. My mom even scolded me telling me just to wait until she can come help. Hello. Hormones tell me to get it done now. you can't argue with that.

OK- back to painting. Anyone else up to no good?

The first car seat I was going to borrow fell through... I haven't spoken to that friend in a few months, I'm tired of begging for things. So a friend of my cousin's who had a baby in July (right around the time I was due with the pregnancy I miscarried) had a brand new extra car seat just sitting around. YAY!! Another friend that was trying to be helpful gave me an old Britax but it was more expired than my other seat, lol. Now I have 2 expired seats that I need to figure out what to do with.

I also was just gifted a very nice bouncy seat. Made me smile. Those were two pieces of gear that I had needed/wanted. I'd live w/o the bouncy seat but it sure makes things easier.

I have all my home birth stuff ready to go and neatly tucked away in the closet. Yay! My list is getting shorter and shorter but I still have a lot of 'dream on' items, like shampoo the rugs and fall clean the entire house. A girl can dream. The important thing is I have all the baby stuff and that my house stays half-ways tidy.

You'd think that, after a week+ of this business, I'd have gotten around to things like 1 and 10 myself. Maybe I'll lay down the wool blanket and a towel under my side of the bed today for at least some basic protection (bed got soaked the last two times, which didn't matter because we spent the next several days at the hospital, and it had a chance to dry. But it does matter this time, and apparently we don't learn well from past mistakes).

Picked up a NB Halo Sleepsack at a thrift store the other day. Now maybe I can get around to making a slightly larger one out of wool, as I've been intending to do for a while now. The one I had for using as a pattern was just too huge - it's labeled 0-9 months, but I can't imagine it actually being safe to until at least 3ish months. Now, between the two sleepsacks and a normal gown, I should be able to come up with some sort of reasonable pattern for a slightly larger baby.

Kitty, #14 is so yucky...and is the only one ive got to do as well-

otherwise I am done with everything...sooooo- I had to make up something new to keep me occupied. I decided to have the dining room painted from white to a warm cream (pregnancy induced interior decorating urges urgh)-we shall start off the week with this. And then right after I am so totally treating myself to a cleaning lady!!! Ive been keeping the place pretty clean and have even re-organized stuff like the insides of all closets and other forgotten corners (yay!) but I need someone to come in here and do some deep hardcore scrubbing, I just cannot physically do that now. I dream of someone scrubbing the shower and bathtub...wiping all surfaces...getting into crevices...L.O.L.

Ok. All I really have left to do is to make/buy a diaper bag (the one I bought is too small!), make a tote basket, knit some stuff up, cook some freezer meals, and try to keep this house clean. I also need to buy a tarp. Otherwise I'm done!
post #140 of 144
Packing the diaper bag I just made. . Trying to remember what to fill it with. I have some dipes, wipes in a case (sposie for now), nail file, hair tie, receiving blankets, hat, extra outfit for baby, wet bag, nursing pads, and crayons/paper/undies/pullup for the toddler.

I finished more on my list but will have to mark it later- I can't figure out how to do that easily on the iPod.

I have some cranberry muffins and apple bread in the freezer, but no other meals yet. Saturday I'm going to try to get some cookie dough, chili, shepherd's pie, and chicken pot pie together to freeze. Should I freeze the pies before cooking? Then cook frozen or let thaw first?
