There's still some organizing that needs to be done (let overs from the Spring cleaning frenzy of last week ). And there's still some HB supplies I need -- like the new garden hose! Not to mention stocking on food & drinks for labor and after. But I won't be able to get to most of this until next Friday when the paychecks come in. So no baby arrival until these loose ends have been taken care of! :LOL
Not to mention that we had a chat and I'm fine with birth happening any time starting with April 19th and after. I'd love to have a Taurus baby, since I'm also a Taurus. I know, silly. A full moon baby around the 24th would be really cool -- I was one.
Qerratsmom- You ask for it now, but just remember how busy you're going to be once it all happens! I know it's hard to wait, but try and take some advantage of these last few days you have (the 10th really isn't that far off!) I'm with wasabi -- my MW leaves internal checks up to me, unless there's a problem. I know me, if I get it checked, then I'll just be consumed with how I'm progressing. It would just be better to not know.
liawbh- My "surprise" baby shower is tomorrow. My cousin's fiancee was trying really hard to make it a surprise, but one of the guests called me to confirm some info. So much for that. But I'm not aware of who's invited or what exactly is going to happen. Not to mention dh is suppose to be there but he's already making excuses that dd will get in the way so he'd better take her out (how about all those other Sundays I ask him to do that? : ) Hopefully it'll all be low key. I also made a registry that no one is actually taking any advantage of. Why didn't I learn from my wedding registry how useless this is?
Oh yes, and then there's work. Why do women from other departments whom I rarely talk to feel compelled to come up to me and ask, "So you really are planning to work until the 15th?" or "Do you really think you'll make it to the 15th?" (My edd is the 17th.) Well, yes and thank you very much for doubting my innate abilities! : Of course, I haven't really told many that I'm planning a waterbirth at home, which would probably just adde to their disbelief of my sanity. I just assumed that with the few who knew it would spread. Anyway, now I feel very compelled to prove to them that just because I'm working so close to the date doesn't mean I'm going to spontaneously crown and birth at work. But if this wants to come sooner, then that's entirely up to her or him. Obviously, I won't be coming to work that day, or if it should happen while at work then I'll be going home.
Anyone else seen these? I'm thinking of getting one if no one gets one for me: www.birthbeads.com. They look so cool!
