Is anyone else as excited as I am that the DDC having babies right now is January!?!!?!
You know what that means... we need to get our butts in gear!
Seeing as some of us might be having our LO by the end of this month.
Let's do this, ladies!
Parsley, I know that is obviously not your original wishes or plan, but I am so excited for you. I wonder if you will be the first. I know we have a couple of other ladies that are due late January vs. February.
I think I am speaking for all of us in saying that we will be thinking of you, and wishing you all the best!!!!
Are you ready?
I found out that my baby dropped down really low, and it hit me that I need to get into gear to prepare! I went to Target to pick up a baby bathtub, washcloths, some disposables for the first couple of weeks until we can get rested enough to use our cloth diaper stash, and some yummy apricot baby oil by Burts Bees. I thought I had been preparing well by washing diapers, clothes, blankets, etc, but I forgot about those other little things. It did feel a little surreal buying these items, like this is really happening in a couple of weeks! How is everyone else feeling?
Hey -- been absent for awhile but excited to have the time to rejoin y'all as our DDs approach!
I'm 36 weeks -- will be 37 next Weds. Planning a home birth and my daughter came at 38 weeks, so could be sooner than later. My hubby and I are working like mad to get the house ready for the birth and the new baby! So much to do! Hoping the baby waits 'til its due dat e-- Feb. 1.
I'm due the 11th! And I haven't done a DARN thing. I don't need to buy anything, but I do need to get my booty into the storage room to haul out all the newborn clothes and diapers. And wash them. And a million other things that I don't want to think about. My only consolation is that I tend to drag in the last weeks because I don't have anything to do but watch the calendar...maybe my procrastination will pay off. Or bite me in the butt, whichever. LOL
I'm getting excited, too!! I'm tired and starting to get uncomfortable, so I'm trying to get everything done before 36 weeks. I have clothes, diapers and the crib all ready to go. I think I need a couple things for my birthing kit yet and I need to get the spare room straightened up and the laundry room cleaned so I'm not ashamed of my midwife going in there to do laundry! I am going to look tonight in the garage for some baby toys and the bathtub, and other than that I feel like I'm pretty much set! We have a birthday party for DS later this month and that's been a bit of a distraction. I may have some crunching to do that next week! Coming off the holiday has been hard. Things have been so busy that when DS took his nap today and I had some quiet time alone I almost didn't know what to do with myself!
I'm so looking forward to reading birth stories!!!
