argh...I just started a post and then it erased itself
okay let's see if I can remember
superbeans- If you're in a cold climate you could register for some wool tops, bottoms, hats. That's one of the few things I have to get this time since DS was a spring baby and we have no warm newborn stuff. Nordic Natural Woolens has really nice wool/silk blend baby things. Also, baby creams and shampoos if you plan to use them. I registered for all the Weleda stuff we'd planned to use for my shower before DS. It was awesome to not think about buying diaper cream or any of that stuff for like a year and they make inexpensive gifts. Nursing pads. Arer you guys set for carriers?
serafina- awesome friend to surprise you like that. That's so sweet
Welcome back EMConnell!
afm- After a month of my midwives reminding me I finally made an appointment to pre-register at the maternity unit. So, next Thursday I get to sit down and fill out paperwork for an hour. They say an hour but how much could I honeslty have to fill out. DS wasn't born in a hospital so I kind of have no clue. So, my husband will come with me to finally get to meet at least one of my midwives next week. He came for our 20 week ultrasound but he never made it in to meet the midwife because DS was being rowdy. I'm more concerned with him knowing exactly where the maternity unit is than meeting the midwives though especially since we don't know which one we'll end up with and we could end up with an OB I've never even met if I go into labor when none of them are on call. If I go into labor when he's at work he'll have to meet me there and I want him to know exactly where he's going. Besides, we've met with our doula together every time and that feels more important to me. She's the one who we know will be supporting us through the entire birth. I spent my day alone watching cheesy movies (One for the Money and Runaway Bride) and quilting. It was grand!
