I remember the same thing! Or I wanted to lay down and nurse and just fall asleep while we were laying in bed, but I felt like I had to be awake and available for company.
The new plan is that my inlaws are coming over as soon as they get the call (1 1/2 hours away) to come watch Ben at our house and there they will stay while we are in the hospital. That way they can come get baby visits here and there and Ben can come visit me at the hospital too. Then when it is time to come home, they will take Ben home with them for a few days and come back and forth visiting with Ben and whenever I feel comfortable keeping him home again we'll do that. The good news is I get to see Ben and he won't forget who I am. The bad news is I will have houseguests for 2 or 3 days while I'm not there. I am going into a whole new nesting drive. I want the house to have clean towels, sheets, overal guest clean. I was prepared for "baby clean" but "mother in law who is spending the night" clean is kinda different. OH well. I know no matter how hard I try and keep it clean, she will clean it for me when she gets here anyway. (she always does)
I just completed one thing on my "list". I trimmed the cradle bumper. It was not the right dimension for my cradle so I was brave and took out the sewing machine and viola! one checkmark on my list is sooo pretty. I'm proud. Now I need to do about 10 more things.
Polyphany--you poor thing. Falso labor starts are bad enough. False water breaking starts must be so disheartening. Especiall when it took all night to get the result.
Ketilave--you're so sweet for thinking of us late august mamas. I am afraid it is too late. I already feel left out. I told my husband last night that everyone is having their baby but me! That's not true though but it seems like it. You need to go get some sleep! I hope Amelia adjusts soon. I hope YOU adjust soon. That is alot to deal with.
My2girlz-- your baby and girls are soo cute. You'll have to change your name now to my 2 girls +1 boy!
Magemom--you tell your family to chill
--you will have that baby when you are ready whether someone's appointment is missed or shopping gets postponed or whatever. You are pregnant and need a little TLC. I hope you have that baby soon!
bwylde--we're thinking about you and your surgery. maybe the or will be postponed each day and you'll spontaneously go into labor on your own.
All of these baby pictures are adorable! They are soooo small
ABout the haircut thing--I thought I would like the post partum image change and I probably would have if it wasn't the *worst*hair cut in the world ever!
peaceful and wonderful labor vibes to all you mamas who need it...
