Oh my gosh - I feel like I have sooo much to do and can't get anything done. I decided tonight that I just need to start a list and slowly work through it. We moved 6 weeks ago and the house is still not completely unpacked/organized. I want to decorate a little for fall/halloween and I need to sew a "trick or treat" bag/basket for DS. I want to start cooking and freezing. I have a couple baby shower/new baby gifts to sew ASAP. I want to sew a new ring sling, diaper bag, a few swaddlers.... We really have no specific place for all the baby stuff. The baby will sleep with us, but we don't have a dresser or anywhere to store the cloth diapers, clothes, etc. I started emptying my dresser drawers and putting stuff in there, but then I need to find a place for my clothes. This is so different from when we had DS - he had to most organized, lovely decorated room with matching furniture, etc...although he slept with us....it was really nice to have a place for everything. This house just doesn't have an extra room. Oh, and I really need to go get some maternitiy clothes because nothing fits! All my old maternity clothes are summer clothes. I need to find a hypnobirthing class, sign up, and start. Just trying to get normal everyday stuff - cleaning, paying bills, etc - is hard to get done. All these things, plus a million little things, just run through my head everyday and it's overwhelming.
That baby is doing well. Very active and kicking up a storm. I'm starting to get uncomfortable and not sleep well...oh yeah, I also need to sew a maternity pillow thing to try to make sleeping more comfortable. I go to the chiro every 2 weeks which helps, but it's still frustrating to be so restless at night. The nausea and vomiting are still present but seem to be improving this past week.
We still are no where close to a name....boy names are so hard! We've always had a girl name and even have a variation of this name for boy #4 if we ever get there. (We want 4 kids, so if we never have a girl...)
This past week DS has been a bit of a terror. Peeing on all the furniture - granted, he's only 28 months and has only been out of diapers for a month, but he did soooo well until now!! He is also getting so whiney/fussy which he rarely did before. Independance is setting in big time and he's one stubborn boy! Our daycare provider - 2 days a week - said she's noticed some classic changes in him which she says she often sees when a new baby is on the way.
Sorry for the crazy ramble...this is how my brain works these days!! Hope everyone else is doing well!
