I prepare early. My first was born suddenly at 34 weeks and I had nothing ready at all. Clothes and blankets weren't washed, the bassinet was in a box, no bedding for the bassinet, no diapers, bottles, binkies, no nursing clothes or san pads. Absolutely nothing was ready. He was born on a Sunday night, I was discharged Tues morning, ran home to do a load of laundry and ran to the store for diapers/ bottles/ etc, and then went back to the hospital and he was discharged that afternoon, then my husband was going back to the store for more things that we had forgotten. Not fun!
So, I do prepare early and then spend the end of my pg working on crafts- knitting, sewing, etc.
Anywho, the nursery is set except for washing the bedding and putting up the blinds. I love my nursery! I painted the room tan and blue and it has a Thomas the Train border. I fixed up an old dresser and painted it dark blue and spelled Caleb going down the drawers. The crib, changing table, and blinds are all white. Fun, fun, fun!
The clothes and things are organized and I will start washing them this next week. I have at least a month's supply of diapers set.
I still need to pack our bags, install the carseat, and do the washing. I also need to start stocking up on freezer meals. I will be 34 weeks this week. I definitely don't want to deliver him until at least Nov 1, since I have a class that goes through the beg of Dec and I don't want to miss too much of class, but having things set and ready to go when needed is a relief.
How about you ladies? Any projects you are working on this week?
