Since being put on bedrest at 30 weeks, I have come up with many random ways to keep my kids and I busy and sane! I have been able to completely organize every crevice of my home...something I probably wouldn't have done if I was still working at this point. I set the pack & play with bassinet up and completely disinfected it. I did the same with the infant car seat and the glider we have. The boppy pillow cover is clean and all of her clothes and blankies have been washed and put away as well. My breast pump is clean and in the cupboard ready to go with milk storage bags (I don't use this right away, just wanted it all ready). I purchased 2 new nursing bras (after nursing 2 children both to around 14 months, I decided I could spend some money on a couple *cute* nursing bras). I have diapers in various sizes and wipes. And I also purchased one pack of the brand of pacifier that I like so they are here if needed (neither of my kids really like the paci, so we will see if she even needs them). I vaccuumed out my SUV today and it's all ready for the car seat to simply be installed!! I am SO excited that I feel so ready this time around!!
All I have left is:
*Finish the cornice board for the kids room (all 3 of our kiddos will be sharing a room for a little while because our spare bedroom is downstairs and we won't put any of them down there as young as they are)...I will post pics of their room when it's done...I think it's turned out super cute for a girl~boy~girl shared room!
*Pack my hospital bag (probably do that Thursday when I hit 36 weeks)
*Keep up with the house, weekly Dr. appointments and enjoying the summer with my kiddos!!!
What about everyone else? Do you feel like you are "ready"? Are there certain things that you are weird about having to be done before the baby comes? I'm a little crazy but I always see myself going into labor with a spotless house, bags packed, hair & make-up super cute, a freshly cleaned car and kids sleeping soundly for naptime or bedtime. Has it ever happened this way? Not really!! I went into labor in the middle of the night with DD, looked like heck and could only manage to put on some sweat pants and dirty sweatshirt that were laying on the floor!! With DS I was on my way to church, so I at least felt "cute" but I was so crabby and tired that I didn't care about cleaning the house anymore!! Maybe this time will the one!! Haha...what can I say?! It doesn't help that I've had OCD my entire life either: ) : )
