A week in a luxury hotel, with a tall pile of books and room service (ideally it would be in walking distance of the Smithsonian Museums, but in that case, I need 2 weeks). Masseuse on call.

 

Then, I will come home to find my house deep cleaned. And the winning lottery ticket.

Hopefully, you've already solved this one, but I'm a big fan of zappos for bathing suits.  I just order a bunch, they come quickly, and you can try them on at home, and put the rest back in the box.  Super fast and easy.  It's also how I've been getting shoes for my LO since there is no good place to shop for kids shoes around here.

This is where I bought mine; it fits mine until almost second trimester usually: http://www.wholesomewear.com  A little pricey but definitely worth it.


May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

Any ideas out there?  Crazy and outrageous (a.k.a. innovative) ideas are welcome. I am at the end of my rope.

 

Make her something with coconut oil! Crunchy gals love coconut oil. Get some essential oils like lavender and make her a belly balm or something. Wrap it up nice with a thoughtful card.

Get her a package of  comfy black cotton underwear.   Because seriously, who wouldn't love a few extra pair of giant black cotton underwear those first few postpartum days (weeks)?

To go into labour. I'm having very mild, sporadic contractions and I need them to firm up and get this child out

Also for my 2 year old to adjust readily to being a big sis. I need that almost as much as I need to get this kid out!!

About a dozen other things but these are the biggies. Labour vibes please :-)
