Writermama - Congrats on getting the kitchen! It's funny how your momentum can shift so quickly, but if the energy to get it done is there, how quickly it can happen. The freezer food is starting to become important to me, and I'm sure that'll be my next kick once I finish these other ones!
Strangest nesting urge?
Definately backing up our laptops. I sprung on DH that I wanted to buy an external hard drive NOW! He was a little stunned since it really came out of nowhere. But he was really sweet, and said that was actually something he'd been wanting to do for a year or so.
I dunno what happened. I've just become paranoid about losing all our photos if our laptops die. I also have been working on reimaging each laptop so we can squeeze a bit more life out of it.
What have you done the last week to prepare for baby?
Had a night where I couldn't sleep at 2 am. So what's a pregnant momma to do? Find bulk deals on Toilet paper of course! So yeah, I have toothpaste, toilet paper, peanut butter, Tums, prenatals, and vitamin D supplements on the way. I ALMOST bought an 1800 pack of q-tips, and then I came to my senses. It was a good deal though. Thanks amazon subscribe and save!
What have you done that you were surprised became important to complete?
DH has been doing 80 hour work weeks recently for med school. Normally he takes care of his own appointments, but I asked if he wouldn't mind if I set some things up for him. I felt like a bossy wife, but I was really getting antsy that I take care of him as much as I can before this little lovey comes along. Optomitrist, Life and Disability insurance exams. Whew, nice to have those taken care of!
Any nesting that you found particularly useful?
I really loved doing the birth beads! I was just able to finish mine the other day! I had become a bit more nervous about labor, but I felt much more calm and sense of power after reading all your messages. I love that I have a physical reminder that other women in my position are going into birth confident and excited.
