Well I made it thru Thanksgiving without going into labor. So I am resting as much as possible and getting last-minute things in order. Every day I have off and on contractions and braxton hicks which is completely normal. At least it’s not active labor for this long. I’m also experiencing other bodily changes that are letting me know baby is almost here.
We have moved a pack n play from upstairs to downstairs. We’ll get the swing down here tomorrow. We finally put “Sweet Dreams Little One” decals up in the baby’s room that I’ve been wanting to put up for months but of course wasn’t going to haul my wobbly butt up a step stool to do. I have most of our Christmas shopping done because I don’t think I’ll be able to do any shopping between when the baby comes and Christmas, unless its online. I’ve made more nursing tops. I’d like to make a few more though if I can fit it in before the end of the week and I am making sure all baby blankets and other items I will be using right away are washed. I need to sterilize my breast pump accessories and well I’m sure I’ll find other things to add to the list.
My bag is mostly packed outside of my toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash etc. I have a semi clean house that I will attempt to stay on top of until baby gets here. I have instructions pending to print out for my mother in law who will watch our two-year old when I’m in the hospital and I’m hoping and praying the little tyke behaves for her. Thankfully she’ll only have to spend one night taking care of the little tike. My husband will be home with him the second night.
So this week I will be waiting, nervously, impatiently waiting….and probably freaking out a little bit. I’ve had three false alarms so far where we were almost ready to head out, then they stopped as soon as I drank water or started to focus my attention on something else.
I have excitedly packed a cute little jumper and Santa cap that I can’t wait to bring baby home in since he is our little Christmas gift from God.
Here’s to waiting and my first cup of coffee after his arrival!
