Ithappened, wishing you all the best for the birth in a little less than half a day! Had a dream about you and the ddc club last night (see below). Enjoy your rest in the hospital, too, and your new little ones!
Mommamelissa, it sounds like you have a great level of excitement and energy! I think sallyrae has some good suggestions.
Ninetales, if you have little things left to do, that actually sounds good, since they should be manageable! Hope it all goes well.
Sally, seems like we're at the same point and I also have the hospital bag and car seat bases to install, but dh has already practiced. I think I would still like us to take them somewhere to verify that we have done it correctly, though.
Lily, it sounds like you have a great plan for the next few weeks. Sorry about the cramping. I am not getting that as far as I can tell.
Tizzy, hope the timing works out for dh to spend some calm days with you! Good news about the symptoms.
Sarah, sorry about the insomnia. I found that I really need to exhaust myself before going to sleep and that's the best guarantee that I won't wake up with my mind racing a few hours after initially falling asleep.
Lakeruby, hope the appointment goes well. You still have some time for the nesting to kick in!
Rebecca, sounds like you have a fab husband!
Newmum, I hope baby stays put until your dh is back home!
AFM, I had the funniest dream last night that we had a ddc reunion just before ithappened was about to get her c-section, to wish her well. I guess it's not so different from the ddc itself, but it was interesting.
36 weeks today and feeling fine! I do have pressure in my low pelvis when standing and walking sometimes. That is the new symptom from the past week or so. In general the sciatica/hip pain is a little annoying and I have discomfort in my tailbone, but most of it feels like intensification of previous feelings.
In terns of preparation, things are coming together: I finally ordered the replacement mattress for the mini cosleeper and some sheets for it. We spent hours last night looking at nursery decals on etsy and didn't end up choosing any, but it was fun. We may see what Target has in stock, since we have so many gift cards still to use there. We found some cordless blinds there, which dh will install today, but they only had two that would fit our br windows, where the baby will be in the beginning, so we need to investigate further, but at least it's a start. I need to finalize the birth plan, pack the bag, and decide which nursing supplies I need now; and dh has to remove some odds and ends from the nursery/guest room and fix the caulking the the guest bathroom.
