It's pretty sucky not to be able to do things again.
I'm horribly depressed about it.
Tomorrow I'll have to drive to go to PT, and I'm nervous about that and not looking forward to it at all. I'm probably going to talk to a lawyer tomorrow, because I absolutely *must* put the kids into new carseats and I haven't heard a word from #5's insurance company yet, but it's so totally got to be done, I'm having panic attacks thinking about what might happen....
As to baby preparations... well, I was going to make french toast to freeze on Thursday night, but now the bread is probably starting to go moldy because of course I couldn't stand up on Thursday.
Good lord, that
ought to be paying for the groceries that I wasn't able to use!
I was totally preparing food for after the baby's birth, you know? Mike went shopping and I was waiting for Thursday's PT appointment so that I could confidently cook a whole bunch of stuff for later and now a lot of that food is probably no good and still more will be sketchy.
: Everything is just pissing me off so much...
Anyway, I haven't washed any baby clothing, nor any baby diapers.
They're mostly together... mostly. I think. Probably.
We don't have a ton of baby clothing, but we should be okay on infant diapers. Just prefolds and proraps, nothing special, but they'll do.
What I'd really like to get are some Dritz pins. I can never find them, and they're so unbelievably useful! If I ever manage to build a website selling stuff, I'll totally sell Dritz pins. I found out that they're really cheap to buy in bulk, so I'd probably start out giving a free pair away with a pair of longies or whatever. THey're so, so much nicer than the ones that you buy at k-mart, you know?
Loads of contractions today; Probably BH, but my back is killing me and I've got a splitting headache.
FIL was so funny, he was really surprised when I said I was having too many contractions to be comfortable sitting. "Isn't that a bad thing?" No, not at this stage... it's just something that happens. "But can't you miscarry?" Well, not really, I'm more than 30 weeks along and this baby is big for dates (feels big to me); even if I *was* to go into labor, BellyBean probably wouldn't spend more than 3 weeks in NICU. Not that I'm eager to ever see the inside of NICU again, but 3 weeks I can totally live with.
