Re: Getting readyI haven't really done anything.
Well...that's not exactly true. We're having hardwood floors installed in our house and our motivation to do it was to get rid of the nasty carpets before the baby comes...so I guess that counts as something.
Right now we're sleeping in the "baby's room" and slowly putting our room back together. DH wants to just move everything back in there but I really want to purge first. BUT since my idea of helping lately has been laying on the couch and telling him exactly how I want it done : I doubt it's going to get done.
We have a hand-me-down co-sleeper that I can't wait to set up and I have boxes of hand-me-down baby clothes/diapers that I will be able to wash and put into drawers (as soon as we're out of the baby's room and we move the dresser int there).
As for strollers...I registered for the peg perego (I think it's the P3 or something like that). I love it. Like you Cieli, I have long drooled over the European pram/strollers. I was SOOOO trying to justify why I needed one. But the reality is for me...I live in a rural area so I really need to be able to pop the stroller in my trunk (small trunk - toyota corolla) and take it with me for walks and the pram/strollers are not very portable.
I also registered for a jog stroller...found one that folds up pretty nicely AND is tall enough for my DH (6'3") to push it comfortably.
DH picked out some plaid "manly" fabric for his sling and I made that a couple of weeks ago.
I guess I've done more then I thought! :LOL
This morning I can feel a REALLY hard spot on my right side...not sure if it's her head or butt but it feels so cool. This is the first time I've had any inkling about her position (and I'm still not sure which end I'm feeling).
Hope you all have a great day!
