The food conversation is so funny to me. What I can't understand is how I can be famished one minute and repulsed by food the next. For hours I can't stand the thought of food and then all of a sudden I need to eat a huge meal immediately. I had some bad insomnia last night and it was definitely triggered by my stomach growly so loudly as to wake me up!
We're pretty ready to go around here. Everything is washed & sorted. We put up the (symbolic) crib and set up the co-sleeper-- with some improved foam to bring the baby to the same height as the bed to make for super easy nursing and in & outs in the middle of the night in case by some miracle she'll actually sleep in the thing. And, we've done a ton to make DD's part of the room match her tastes and interests. The frustrating thing is that we ordered a new dresser for DD back in Nov from a local store with the idea that she'll get the new smaller dresser and the baby will get the hand-me-down dresser/changing table. But, the dresser still hasn't arrived so I can't actually unpack anything. It's just all still in bags in the closet. So, frustrating!
The only big things left to do are re-pack the hospital bags with things that actually fit and are comfy now (convert from emergency hospital stay bag to definite post-partum bag), pack an activity bag for DD, and wait on that dresser. And, maybe make an enormous pot of chili to freeze... assuming I can find it appetizing long enough to add the ingredients.
It's been a tough few weeks for me. I've been feeling super anxious. It's gotten so bad that the whole house is on a countdown. DD said this morning... ok, 1 week and 2 days left. (until scheduled c-section). Lots of bleeding and spotting last week put us all on super alert. At this point just keeping my fingers crossed (and legs, frankly) that we'll make it another 9 days.
I'm hoping I won't be the first though! Some of you sound like you are actually ready to go!
