The baby's room is ready. So very, very ready. Bassinette there to be wheeled into our room, dresser is full of diapers and clothes... Heck, I even assembled the crib for when she's a bit bigger.

The car seat is installed (hey, i needed to store it somewhere, right?) and I have a hospital bag in the trunk of the car, which I cleaned out and vacuumed on the weekend.

But... the rest of my house is a disaster. We have exactly 1 piece of living room furniture and the rest will be here next week. That one piece is a futon I can't even sit on for fear of never standing up again. I was going to sweep my kitchen floor today, but I can't find the broom. I have about 9 loads of laundry to wash, and for whatever reason, the dishwasher is leaking. Wheeeee!

Pretty much ready here, whew! A week and a half or so ago I was freaking out. There's some things that coud be done but if babe decided "OK mama, I'm a coming," I could deal with not having gotten to those things.

Hmm, maybe I should do that too. I'll have dh dig it out of the closet for me... that way I don't have to mess with it after the baby comes. I'm using my spare FPSE for this baby...

I would be so screwed. I'm thousands of miles away from home with my flight home tomorrow morning. When I return, I have to wash a bunch of stuff, get a few more diaper covers, and sort through all the baby gifts I got from my students on my last day of teaching for the year last Thursday.

I know there's lots of other things I need to do, but I'm so disconnected from real life right now as I sit in my hotel room in San Francisco wondering if the rain will slow down enough to venture outside. I figure I'll have enough time to get the last things ready when I get home!

I am so not ready either. I kept putting off getting thebaby things thinking "Oh I still have time before I really need it." and now I have only 3-6 more weeks and I feel overly rushed. I have about 20 more things to get still and am still trying to make sure I have everything listed.

I'm trying to get things as I go but I feel like I am running out of time now, LOL. I still can't find my NB stash of baby diapers either and I am getting really frustrated with that!!!

I'm with you dharmama. Last time I worked full time until 4 days before ds was born. He was 3 days early and I cannot tell you what a sinking feeling it was to realize that I was birthing with a messy apt. and an empty fridge. We had the baby stuff organized but I'd love to me much more organized this time around.
