I think I've cut baby nails for *most* of my postpartum doula clients - the first-time ones at least. Sometimes the ones with older kids too, because it doesn't really matter how many kids you've had, it's still not a fun chore. And also, most babies will hold still and look at mom if they're in someone else's arms and mom is right there - it's a good opportunity to do things like that.
chocolatechip - YAY for a functioning kitchen!!! I totally get how important that is. No question. A kitchen HAS to work.
LightForest - I don't know what your feeling are on this, but have you considered a toddler harness for your DD? Appearances aside, it will give her the freedom to explore (within limits) and it would give you peace of mind, as well.
I signed my DD up for swim club even though she didn't want to go because parents get 45 minutes of swimming for $2 at the same time. I'm a dreadful mother (but really, DD *should* have some more swim practice, and she's not nearly as "tired" after school as she thinks she is - she's not averse to swim club per se, merely to doing *anything* after school - but yesterday she went outside and was running around until well after dark so she can't be THAT pooped). I just really like the idea of a guaranteed 45 minute lane swim at least once a week. I've kind of put the weightlifting on hold - it seems to bugger up my pubic bone too much, so I've just been going for longer walks but I need more exercise than that. And while I can use the pool at the Y for "free" (it's included in my membership), they dump SO much chlorine in there that if I go more than once a week my skin starts to suffer (and I'm not a particularly skin-sensitive person). I think I can manage without weight training for another two months or so (plus postpartum recovery time - hopefully I won't still be bleeding at 10 weeks pp like last time...) Oh it will be SO NICE to not have this ginormous belly getting in the way of everything!
