Thanks Chimmy! I hope it goes smoothly the next time around also. At least that time around, I will have the baby and not be pregnant and can do more and not be so uncomfortable.
So we are getting settled in. We seriously need to go through some of these boxes and unpack a few things so they aren't sitting in our room and in our friends hallway. I am sure they can only handle the boxes throughout their house for so long.
We went through some stuff last night and organized our room a little more. We just need to finish getting out the things we need for the next month, and then we can put the rest of the boxes in the garage. Once we get those out of here, we can finally set up the bassinet. I am anxious to get that done. Then I will feel ready should I go into labor in the next few days, which I am hoping for.
Oh, and this morning I was having a lot of BH contractions for over an hour...but they eventually stopped. Sigh.
I hope baby girl decides to come soon. Not before the bassinet is unpacked, though
With all the unpacking and activity, maybe you'll get things started. If not, walking a bunch in the morning and then a mile and a half every night did the trick for me!
Thanks Beth and Chimmy! I appreciate your comforting words and advice.
Walking hurts quite often...I waddle like a penguin and the pelvic pressure is pretty bad...but if walking will help...I think I will start doing that tomorrow.
We re-organized all of our boxes and stuff in the garage and things look so much better. Now we just need to get the boxes in our room unpacked so we can get them out of here and finally set up the bassinet. Oh, and I still need to get the baby's carseat in the car.
Wow. I hope all this moving energy is coming from nesting. I got tired just reading all of that! You are one brave mama!!! How are you feeling today?

I am feeling tired today. The people we are staying with are super nice but any walking around going on upstairs sounds like elephants down here because the creaking, etc is awful. The floor boards are just bad. When they wake up early in the morning with their 2 year old screaming, not only can we hear him screaming but all of the walking around wakes us up. Both of my kids woke up shortly after 6am and they are usually asleep until 7:30-8:00. So I was not happy that they woke up so early. Now they are going to be crabby today. Plus I woke up earlier than I would have liked to.
Other than that, I am trying like crazy to get our room as organized as possible considering we are living out of boxes. I just have this huge urge to have everything ready because I feel like I could have the baby at any time. I want to get the room as ready as possible so I can finally set the bassinet up. I will be glad when that is done. Hopefully I can rest this afternoon.
Gosh, you have a lot to deal with! I hope you are able to rest (and that the kids aren't too crabby for you!). Those last few weeks are tiring enough without moving and having two kids to take care of. Try and take it easy when you get a chance, Kimia!
I will try to get some rest. It doesn't help that whenever I am standing or walking for too long without sitting down and resting, I get awful sciatica pain in my right thigh/bum area. Ow!
On another note, we are heading to the house we made an offer on tonight to meet with the current owners so that we can ask them questions we have about the house/lawn and neighborhood...as well as take measurements so that we can start looking for furniture sometime soon. I am glad that they are willing to meet with us so that we can ask them our questions directly instead of having to communictate through the realtors.
I hope it goes well.
I still need to finish our room, get caught up on my at home medical transcriptioning job, and go grocery shopping this afternoon. This is going to be a long day!
