Oy, I should definitely think about ordering my birth kit. I am in denial that we are getting closer and closer to July! I am 30 weeks tomorrow, can't believe it.
I am in complete nesting mode, which I have never experienced with my other pregnancies for some reason, but I want everything impeccably organized and I want everything "extra" out. This week alone I have sold or given away a jogging stroller, a regular stroller, tons of baby gear that people gave us that we didn't really use, one arm chair, one rocking chair, and a bunch of plant pots since my toddler has managed to kill most of our house plants in the past year. I feel like I am feeling this urge because I am birthing here....but with my last it didn't seem to matter! I do get more and more neurotic about cleanliness with age for sure! With my first my house was a mess and I was fine with it. Now my house is often messy but it stresses me out!
In our neighborhood parents group on Facebook a woman posted asking if she should call 911 because it sounded like a woman was in labor in a neighboring building. (She said screaming/vocalizations were really loud and coming every five minutes for about a minute.) Of course I commented saying to please let her be, but you would not believe how many people commented suggesting she call 911 immediately, or begin buzzing all of the doorbell buttons in the building until someone let her in to investigate! Now I have a (probably irritational,) fear that someone might call 911 during my birth! Last time with my son it was January, and no one heard me at all....I even asked my neighbors after the fact. This time in July though, I would assume we would want some windows open!
