I feel like I'm ready now! I think this was the last big thing I needed to do. Good thing we already had the minivan! I worried about how/where to put the boys (3 and 5yo) but I finally decided to move them to the back row and put the baby where I've always put the babies, in the middle seat behind the passenger, where I can reach them if need be. I was worried about the boys being all the way in the back because sometimes they antagonize each other but so far they're liking it; they have little secret compartments for toys and cup holders back there

DH just finished his big project for me which was repainting the living room walls that were full of scribbles (with scrubbable satin paint, just to be safe) and I think we pretty much have everything else ready!

The funny thing is I'm not due til April 25 (I'm 34 weeks) but I'm expecting this baby in about 3 weeks due to my history so far!

Congrats!! It's a good thing to feel ready. I think we would be fine if baby came now, but there's a lot of financial paperwork I'd like to take care of first. The baby stuff is mostly done .

I REALLY need to put my carseat in! My goal is this week, as MIL will be here this weekend with the pack n play so if baby were to come we'd have clothes, a way to get her home, diapers and somewhere for her to sleep

We got our car seat installed a good month or so ago by the state police just so that DH knows how to do it correctly (and he taught me now). We put in the car to stay this past weekend!!!! So exciting!!!!:
