Too much to do. So little time. My little lovenote will be here in less than a month, and I admit… I am not ready. The baby’s bassinet is still in our garage. We have just one box of diapers in the nursery.
Gotta get more Onezies and booties and bottles – and, it just hit me… I AM 36 WEEKS PREGNANT AND DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M HAVING! What was I thinking? As I type this entry, my tiny trooper is giving me several swift kicks to the uterus as if to say, ‘yeah Pretty Preggie – you need to get on it!’
Time to stop, reset and get it together.
I started last night by going to Target and purchasing just a few items for my hospital bag: deodorant, toothpaste, Vaseline (don’t want Lovenote’s first vision of me to be an ashy mama), bodywash and a plush pair of slippers. It’s not much, but a start.
This weekend, Honeydew and I (well really just Honeydew) will unpack the bedside cradle and start getting our house in order. This week, my doc said, it’s possible I could deliver early because of how I’m measuring. Everyone at work jokes that I look like I could deliver TODAY! (Jeez, am I that big?!). I’ve promised, my baby will NOT be delivered in a TV newsroom. I like my job and my coworkers – but not enough to allow them to be all up in my “business” when it’s time to push the baby out. Hey – I believe in producing the news, not making it.
If you have any more ideas for my hospital bag, let me know. Each time I’ve delivered, I’ve always forgotten to bring something.
Thanks for your help.
