: I will have this baby in my arms two weeks from today, if not sooner! Oh my goodness, I don't know if I'm ready.
Friends are throwing us a shower next Sunday, though it's not really for gifts (though I'm sure people will bring some). I got rid of all dd's newborn to six month clothes after Hurricane Katrina, when I thought I'd never be pregnant again. (Hah!). But yet I don't want to buy much of anything till I know whether it's a boy or a girl. I have dipes and a few gender-neutral things I've picked up at resales, and other than that I will have to rely on mom, my friends, or the Internet to fill in the gap after baby comes.
I'm trying to organize a henna belly gathering but even though I only want a few friends there it's proving more difficult to find a time than I thought. I was really hoping for New Year's Eve but unlike me, most everyone else has plans. Hah!
We are trying to buy a king-sized bed but that's not so easy, either. So there's still enough last-minute stuff to make me a bit anxious. I just need to relax and go with the flow. Everything will work out OK in the end. My dd is a master of calm, at age 3 1/2. Her favorite words, "That's OK, mommy." I need to be zen, like she is. Juls
, I'm worried about you. The blood loss and infection sounded pretty worrisome. I hope that you're not posting simply because you literally have your hands full and not because you're still in the hospital!Vegan
, are you working this week? How is your nausea/fatigue? Congratulations on making it one more week through the first trimester!Jrabbit
, I have no advice vis a vis your mom and the birth. Though if you're still pregnant, your folks must have arrived by now. Good luck with everything!MNSunshine
, how are you holding up?
