Just sayin. Not to panic anyone or anything.
Ten fingers (or less) and we start meeting our babies.
Not that I'm panicking.
Less than 10 weeks til my due date, likely to go before. Holding out for 38 weeks! Which is like 7-ish weeks to go...
Since these aren't my babies, my to-do list before they come is a little different than the usual. But I'm definitely feeling the need to finish up some projects I started since I have no idea when I will get to them after I'm off bedrest.
This is me also. The other day ago I was laying in bed and it just kind of hit me that I am going to be a Mama soon. I was thinking "Holy sh*it. She's going to be moving around OUTSIDE of me in around 2 months. Crap. That's not that far away.
I then got super panicky about whether or not I am going to be a good parent. Too late to back out of that train though. Then again, I feel like worrying/caring is a good sign. It just reminds me of when I used to watch that Teen Mom garbage.... the ones who were having the most issues were the ones who never thought "hey, I hope I can handle this."
HOLY CRAP what an amazing list and I'm totally impressed with you!!
Our baby is coming in exactly 5 weeks from today!!
We toured the birth center yesterday :) found out where I'll start before the C-section, and after and explained/showed where the nursery is and Special Care nursery is (I'm praying that we don't need the SCN this time!!) and the ONLY reason baby would go to the nursery is *possibly* for the Echo Cardiogram of the hole in his little heart. The nurse did say that sometimes they've come to the room to do it instead of wanting baby to come to them. She suggested they would take him to where ever their section of the hospital is and I didn't want to create a stink before I even get there, BUT they will NOT be taking my brand new baby to a totally different wing of the hospital to do this, they can come to us!!! I also find it very strange that they want me up and walking within the hour after my surgery?! With my last one I was up and walking very soon after but my 4lb newborn was in the SCN and I needed to see her (couldn't hold her though) but the one before that was several hours after. Also, the PP room, was SUPER tiny and I'm not sure that me, DH, baby, and all other 5 kids (not to mention my mom who will need to bring them there (God help us with her driving in downtown Charleston traffic!!) will even fit in the room together?!
List ... FINISH MASTER BEDROOM REMODEL. I'm going to put a before pic here and an after (to where we are now) pic so you can see how far we've come in the last month or so. The picture is of the same wall. Used to be brown, now it's white paneling and we downsized our furniture (got a bigger bed though! to fit baby in with us :) and we have built in dressers and benches. Lots more to do, crown, paint, finish built ins, the attached bath/paint crown and hopefully all before baby comes!! Oh and did I mention DH is working full time and a full time Grad Student EEKKKKK!!!
Whoa! That bedroom looks serene. Good work! And wow - 5 weeks! So exciting!
Love the idea of breaking things down week by week, talldarkeyes. I just love making lists! Just doing that helps me feel productive, lol!
I do have a running list of things to do before the babies, and I am feeling some pressure to get everything crossed off - my goal is to be done everything by June 1st. I don't want to have to do anything or be anywhere or even put anything on the calendar after May, knowing everything is ready to go at the drop of a hat. I want to have time to just be pregnant, the last few weeks of pregnancy are so magical, I think. Probably my favorite part.
I also have a post-babies list - with all the cleaning, organizing, rearranging, purging things I want to do. As well as little day trips, weekend get aways and fun family things I am looking forward to.
