I love that! I'm going a little
I'm a crazy knitter, and I'm planning to pick that up if I feel like it early on, maybe. I like the idea of baking something, since standing up and walking around is probably good for getting things going. That chocolate angel food cake sounds YUMMY! Got a favorite recipe?
Also, since I have a two-year-old, and my ILs are going to be staying at our house watching her, I have a feeling I'll be doing a bit of last-minute cleaning and prep work for that. Nothing heavy duty like scrubbing a bathroom or anything. Speaking of the in-laws, I'm having a hard time conveying to my husband JUST HOW important it is that they not show up too early in labor. He wants to let them know the moment we're pretty sure it's for real - which makes sense since they have to clear their schedule and get over here in a reasonable amount of time - they only live 20 minutes away, though, and I swear to G-D I will kill them if they show right up. Really, I will send them right back home. I want to labor here and in privacy for as long as we can, and I know MIL will be following me around the house fawning on me, or at least at the PP said, doing house work or caring for DD in a manner that will be sure to drive me bonkers.
I had a scheduled c-section with my daughter, and I took a pair of socks with me to knit on in case I got bored after the birth, but didn't touch them in the hospital, and not much after we came home for a while either! I did end up having a few minutes to read a cheesy magazine at the hospital, and that was more fun and right for my state of mind at the time than my normal busy-work.
