Thanks all for your well wishes. It has been a crazy few days of me trying to get things together for next Wednesday... Tuesday actually, what with the amnio.
I have been making lists... which keep getting progressively longer. I've been to the store to buy a bunch of trial sized lotions, shampoos, toothpaste, etc. I got new XL pyjamas. They have a draw string, so they can be pulled in a bit if I am a bit smaller than XL in the hospital. I got 6 pairs of socks. Socks are important in the hospital and during the delivery process. I got a few hair clips and a hair band... last thing I need is my long hair getting in the way and aggravating me. Lip balm is always appreciated. I also burned myself a little baby making CD, just in case I do get to have a vaginal delivery.
I've got a bag sort of ready for the baby too. My Mom took charge of getting the little Newborn clothing washed and ready. We've got NB diapers, tiny hats... I am working on this now.
Work... well, that is a bit of an issue and I am doing what I can. What I don't get done is going to have to wait. My Assistant can be in touch after a few days and I can do a bit here and there with my laptop and PDA.
My goodness - this is becoming very, very real to me!
So, to all of you, I just wanted to say how much it has meant to me to have your ear and kindness throughout this pregnancy. I know I should have moved on to another Board, but this is my home and HQ and I am so grateful that you let me stay.
I am going to be going flat out between now and Tuesday, but I will be stopping in to see how you are all doing when I can. I may be unable to post while in the hospital (Wednesday morning - Saturday) as my Tréo is not that good with posting on this site (too many fields and technical difficulties). BUT I can read messages, and I will.
I will certainly post a pic and a story as soon as humanly possible!!
Please keep me and my bean in your P&PT!
You gals are the best!
