For those of us who are finding the fact that we're about to be mommies (again?) a little surreal...<br><br>
- Car seats in the car<br>
- Going through the birth kit and seeing cord clamps and realizing they'll be on little bellies soon.<br>
- Realizing that I need to clean out the bassinets soon, since I had been using them to hold papers and my laptop for the last few weeks.<br><br>
Anyone else want to add?

-Stocking the diaper changing basket with cloth diapers, wash cloths and all the accouterments.<br><br>

Um, I bought a minivan and now have a car payment for the first time in over 10 years!<br><br>
We were driving around a 1994 Honda Civic and there was no way 3 carseats were going to fit in the backseat!<br><br>
It's a little scary - I'm a grownup now!<br><br>

Since I'm falling behind on all those other getting ready things, the only thing so far would be the really clear (but not 3 or 4D) U/S of baby's face and seeing how very much he looks like the rest of them. He has the same cheeks!!! Tomorrow is my baby shower and then on Saturday (or is it Sunday?) I'll be 36 weeks so I'm thinking this weekend might be finally the time to set up some stuff and wash the little clothes.

Nothing. Nothing at all. I won't realize it until I am pushing him thru my vagina.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

It is just sort of hitting me that we will have a newborn again and I feel so unprepared since it has been almost 2.5 years since my last one. I'm with Synchro (Laura) I don't think I fully be aware until the birth.

What if nothing makes it feel real?....<br><br>
We have everything ready...even down to carseats installed and hopsita; bags packed and in car....<br><br>
...but even with everything ready and watching and feeling the LO move or listening to his heartbeat - NOTHING makes it real..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I keep telling my hubby that "we are going to have a baby" - it's just such a wierd foreighn concept to me! How can there be an actual person inside of me???? I think it will not be real until he is in my arms! And I can't wait! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Getting to Asheville, 3 children crawling the walls because I guess I didn't pack enough fun stuff for them to do, and not knowing how long it will be until babies come.
