You Know it's Your 3rd Baby When...

You realize during the middle of the night that you NEVER preregistered at the hospital, yet with Baby #1 you preregistered at 20 weeks and Baby #2 had the paperwork done around 24 weeks! :)

You completely forgot to schedule a 3D/4D sono for Baby #3 and you are now past the "window of opportunity" (28-32 weeks). Oh well, the nice sono tech gives you about 7 3D pics for a baby book.

Oh...the baby book. You realize that you are 3-weeks until delivery and you still haven't purchased a Baby Keepsake Book...and you never did finish filling out Baby #2s book... :)

You still have not purchased a "coming home" outfit b/c you just finished washing and drying about 4-rubbermaid tubs worth of hand-me-down baby clothing! Probably should get the little guy his own "coming home" outfit!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Those were good ones and so true! Can I add a few more?

... when you know you're not even going to bother setting up the crib that's disassembled in storage... because anyway the baby is going to sleep next to you.

... when you have already "used up" your favorite baby names and have a harder time agreeing with DH on a name for THIS baby.

Hmm, can't think of any more right now.

Oh, Val, how true! I'm glad you still have your sense of humor this close to the big day! I'm pretty sure mine disappeared by about 28 weeks or so with baby #3, LOL! I'm looking forward to your birth announcement -- not much longer now! : ) Hang in there and keep us posted on how you're feeling, etc..

Too funny Val, it's even worse the 7th time around. I just ordered a baby book on Amazon. It will probably arrive after the baby does, but oh well. I have a box of diapers and a few small outfits and some wipes--figure I'm good to go. It's amazing how much you really don't need, unlike w/ baby #1 where you feel like you need everything and then end up not using a lot of it anyway.

I never had to worry about setting up a crib--mine has been up for the last 13 years non-stop. And in use the whole time! And I usually just use the free hospital diaper bag, then switch to a backpack.

I am scheduled for a C, so I guess the hospital knows I am coming!

Not long to go now! 2.5 weeks! Eek.
