I'm thinking of those of you who are feeling frustrated and/or dealing with depression, as well as those in labor!
We just got back from dropping off a bunch of de-cluttered donations at Goodwill and picking up the birth tub. I hope we end up using it, so that it's money well spent. We'll try setting it up at some point this week (then break it down again so our cat can't puncture it!). It felt good to cross that off my to-do list Tomorrow I think I'll head to the laundromat with all our 0-3 month and NB clothes to wash them. And I got information on a woman who may be able to come and clean our apartment so that it can be extra-clean when I go into labor.
My midwife also emailed me last night to say that my GBS test came back negative (yay)! And I got a nursing tank and 2 bras in the mail (I didn't spend much, in case my size changes when my mature milk comes in). Then, if I can make it to the grocery store for a bunch of "labor and post-partum" supplies, I'll feel pretty much all set to go into labor -- once my midwife is back in town, that is! ;)
I'm trying to decide if I should stop working before I go into labor, or just work until the very end. My first 5 days of maternity leave aren't paid (I can use vacation, but I'm not going to), but I'm still hesitant to lose time that I could be spending with a new baby later. But I'm definitely getting tired of going in to work, even if I technically have enough energy to get my job done.
