I have been a nesting machine. I dont even have to hav eenrgy to nest, it's obsessive and comes from somewhere deep inside, apparently! I have cleaned out and sorted through the office closet, the hall closet, the bathroom closet, the girls chest of drawers, bookcase, under their bed, clothes, my clothes that are appropraite and might fit after baby are stacked in a tote next to my dresser, any maternity that is too small is in a tote to go downstairs now, my shoes have been sorted through and some taken out for donation, and the bags and bags of clothes I have for donation or yardsale have been half sorted, the other half is today. And I cleaned out the minivan too. This has all been in about the last week!
All my nesting is done will Im on my butt, even if it means scooting around on the floor, as I tend to get really bad BHs and contractions for overdoing it even just a little. Overdoing it is 2 hrs at the mall and making supper in the same day. Or sweeping, mopping, vaccuuming, and making dinner all in one day. I dont know why it takes so little for me to overdo it.
I wish I could get down on my hands and knees and do my kitchen floor, its atrocious. But I know the exertion would be bad for me. Someone has to, though. A mop is just not gonna take care of the floor at this point.
I have the 0-6 month clothes in one bin, the diapers and towels and blankets in another, the 6-12 months in another bin, and then one bin for each size on up through 5. I have 2 girls that this baby gets handmedowns from, we have TONS. Clothes are one thing this baby doesnt need.
I still want to get another carseat cover to replace the one we had. My cat had kittens in the infant seat while we had it stored (five feet off the ground, box not taped shut!), and though almost all of the stain is gone, I just cant imagine putting my newborn in the seat the cat had kittens in. I found out to get a new one from Graco costs almost as much as a whole new baby seat!! So Ive been watching ebay for a cover and canopy that's cheaper.
We need to bring up the crib and get it sidecarred (new bed this time, so we will have to mess with the matress heights to get them even), and the dresser/changing table.
