Blogging our first pregnancy and child rearing, all the ups and downs, tears and laughs and overthinking that not only comes with being knocked up and a new Momma, but with just being me.
Getting the nursery set up. It is so close to done and I’m so happy. We built a bookshelf today, by we I mean Matt. I headed to babies r us and buy buy baby this morning and used some coupons at buy buy baby and a g.c. at babies r us to get some items to help make the nursery feel more complete. Things are getting organized and put away and I’m feeling good.
Next step is to organize the diapers. Should I wash them all before we use them? Cloth Diapering mom’s I need you!
I love standing in the door way of the room and thinking, yes this looks right, this feels good. It makes me really happy and even more ready for our babe to get here!
C-Sections (not just for me, but for women in general, honestly.)
And, before the Mom crusade comes at me with the wear them proudly, they’re a sign of something beautiful, etc. I know and realize all that. I’m still not happy that I’ve got some, especially so late in the game when I was so hopeful I wouldn’t. And given all the big things I worry about, and am worried about this is a harmless place to transfer some of my anxiety.
I get bigger everyday it feels like.
My stomach is dropping.
Even though I feel like I have a good grip on how to care for and cloth newborns the Baby Basics Class we went to tonight was a worth the time and money.
Every night we get more and more excited about the birth.
My NY shower was more of a party than a shower, which was great because it wasn’t all about watching us open gifts and I could really make the rounds and chat with people, and all the clothes are washed and folded and put away. YAY. Can’t believe there is still more we need. How much is need and how much is “need”, we may never know.
Walking is getting harder.
I’m thankful very often that we’ve chosen home birth, it just feels right.
More thoughts for all of the above in my head, but for now the list will have to do!
