36 weeks 1 day
Yeah about the neg. GSB tests. I find out mine next week. I'm not really worried since I've tested negative both times before.
Oooh to be able to lay down and just go to sleep...
Add me to the group that isn't sleeping well. Mainly because I'm WIDE AWAKE late at night and only want to sleep in the mornings... but I can't do that because the kids are up then. Too bad NEITHER of them are like me and like to sleep in the mornings. :LOL I've been doing the semi-doze for an hour on the couch in the mornings with them. Tori has been really good about not leaving the living room area (which is totally baby/toddler proofed) and going and being destructive somewhere. She's been playing with Jack and they've been having lots of fun.
I was finally able to sit down and repair the bassinet skirt the other night. My mom made a simple muslin skirt to go around the wicker base of my baby bassinet right before Tori was born. She took some of this gorgeous old crocheted lace (about 10 inches long) that my Great Grandmother Dame had made (its about 100 years old) and put it around the bottom of the skirt. Then she threaded some silk ribbon through it. Was very cute. Well about 6 months ago Tori decided to be her usual destructive self and torn a section of the lace up.
I was so upset, it took everything I had to not yell are her for it. Especially since she openly admitted that she did it too me. (Don't want her to stop telling me she's done stuff because she gets in trouble YKWIM?) I took the skirt off of the bassinet base (it was held on with heavyduty staples). Since I don't crochet or knit, I just kind of "tacked" the peices back together onto the muslin underskirt. It isn't great but you don't notice it unless you really look at it that its not quite right. So last night I'm already to re-essemble everything (the kids are asleep). I go out to my toolbox and MY STAPLE GUN IS GONE.
I swear David drives me insane with my toolbox. He mucks in it and NEVER puts things back. So I go through all the drawers, cabinets and toolboxes in the garage trying to find my staple gun. There are various tools and peices scattered around everywhere (BECAUSE AGAIN IT IS TOO HARD TO PUT THINGS BACK!!) I always here the excuse "there's no where to put everything..." Well having going through all the drawers and toolboxes... maybe if he didn't have so much CRAP that doesn't belong in the drawers there would be a place for the tools that are suppose to go in there. Ya think??
I finally find some other staple gun that has no staples in it.
Keep looking and find the staples that work in my gun... but of course they don't work in THIS gun.
So after an hour or so of ransacking the garage I give up. I talked to David later on IM and I mentioned that I couldn't find a staple gun and staples that worked together because my staple gun wasn't in my toolbox and that it was very frustrating. His response... "yeah". Oh don't give me YEAH!
He of course couldn't remember what he did with the staple gun, he remembers he used it at Christmas last year... hmmm wonder if it's still sitting out on the window sill of Tori's windown from when he was hanging christmas lights.
The man drives me crazy with leaving his tools (and worse MY tools) all over the place, I've broken him of the habit IN the house but haven't gotten him to do it in the garage yet. So I now need to add going to Home Depot to my list of things to do. UGH!!
Okay that was a
: and a half. :LOL Sorry about that.
I never really lost any of my mucus plug with either pregnancy. I think David would
if I'd showed him one. :LOL
I'm a list maker too. I've gotten into the habit of putting simple things like feeding the cats,
, vacuuming, etc onto my list. It helps to make you feel productive when all is said and done. :LOL
Savannah- wow your belly cast looks great. I've always wanted to do one... but I have no idea WHERE I'd put it afterwards. :LOL
on having 75+ people over for a party.
Julia- hope your shower is wonderful.
Lazuli- try not to stress.
I remember when I mentioned to my OB (about a week before Tori was born) that at least the nursery was done. He LAUGHED. :LOL He said yeah the nursery is for the parents, not the baby. All the baby needs is a warm spot to sleep (even if it was a dresser drawer), a few clothes (and even then you'd be amazed at how few you really need!) and you. Everything else... not a big deal.
Of course I SAY this as I look at a long list of stuff I want to get done before Radish gets here.
