Hey ladies! Seems like time is moving by really quickly now that I am 22 weeks. How is everyone feeling? I feel good! No issues to speak of but I a feeling LARGE. I am 5 feet tall and I look like I did when I was full term with DD. Up 11 pounds now and I was up a pound or two at this point last time so that may be why.
Anyway, I am in the beginnings of wanting to organize and nest. We will have baby with us probably for the first year and we sleep in the basement. I am thinking of getting a small dresser for downstairs (craigslist? but with a changing pad on top, maybe?) with extra cloth diapers, clothes, pj's but having the majority of her stuff upstairs for day time use.
We have two bedrooms upstairs. One will remain a guest room. My brother just found out he is accepting a great job out here so will be moving across the country, in with us in July. (thats a whole nother story of where I will put inlaws when they will come meet baby in the fall).
The other bedroom is my DD's. She has a small dresser and then a large closet. I can clear out two shelves in the closet for the new babe and have cleared out two large drawers in a dresser upstairs too. SO. My question is: do you think having small labeled cloth bins that can be easily pulled out of the shelves will be a good option to keep 0-3, 3-6, 6-12 clothes? I am just not sure how to organize and I do not really want to buy any more furniture! How are you all doing it?
I hope this post is not too confusing! I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed. I know it will be different this time, having a 3 year old running around, my brother living with us and my husband only taking 2 weeks off. last time, it was so peaceful after the birth. My husband had 7 weeks off and we chose to travel back east with our DD at 4-6 weeks for everyone to meet her. This time, we are asking people to come to us but now that my brother will be living with us, it will just be different. This is my last baby and I just hope I can still find the peace and time to enjoy it all!
