Just yesterday it dawned on me how CLOSE we are to having a new family member! Yes, I'm at 34 weeks, and I'm the last of us in terms of due dates, but both my DS arrived early - at 37weeks and 37wk5d. That would mean that Baby could be here in 2.5 weeks! AAAAHHHH!
Am I ready? That's what people keep asking. But really, it's like asking if you are ready for a sudden change in the whole structure of your life, like the results of a minor civil war. How do you know exactly how everything will change, and how can you be "ready" for the unknown.
Do I have clothes for baby? Check
Do I have diapers? Check
Are my home birth supplies in order? Enough
Is the house ready? Um... well, I'm planning to birth in the hot tub but it's been disconnected for 1.5 months... Our neighbour needs to come by and re-wire it to the house!
Do we know who's going to be our support for the kids? Umm... not yet.
In any case, the reality that everything will turn on it's head in somewhere between 2.5 and 5.5 weeks (likely), has just hit me on the head...
How are the rest of you doing?
