Running out of time

It just occurred to me that my due date is creeping up so quickly. October is going to be a busy month, with a bridal shower, a family get-together, and a Fall festival to attend and a vacation at the end of the month. My mom is planning to have my shower the first weekend in November and I just scheduled my childbirth and breastfeeding classes. Then the holidays will be quickly approaching. Is it just me, or does it seem like our due dates will be here in no time?

Yes!! I'm panicking just a little bit because our crib is on backorder and won't ship until Oct. 20. I can't do any wall decor until the crib is in because I want to frame the crib itself with wall decals (6' tree and clouds). Then we bought the six woodblock art prints which I cant do anyting with until I know where the tree ends up. Yikes!! I wanted to have the nursery ready to go by Nov 1 but I guess that's not going to happen.

My baby shower is on the 29th of October too, so if there are necessities we still need after that I feel like there isn't enough time to shop for them all...even though she's not due for another full month :rolleyes: haha, I just want to be ready in plenty of time!!!

I was just telling DH that the next couple of months are going to fly by because we have a bunch going on too and she will be here before we know it. I'm thinking I better get around to buying her carseat and crib soon!

Yes, I feel like with all the busy holidays coming up, it shortens the time until I am due considerably.

Just be prepared- I was due with my son on June 1 and my shower was May 6 - my water broke less than a week later (on May 11); all those shower gifts were still piled up on the bed in our guest room! Wink

Yes, it's crazy!!! I think the worst part is not knowing if this is going to happen tomorrow or on Thanksgiving. I'm definitely not set up or ready for them, but I'm just not going to freak out about it while we keep working on gathering gear. I figure we'll be in the hospital for at least 4 days so that gives someone time to wash the car seats (I do have those) and to pick up a co-sleeper and a box of diapers. I plan on pulling out my pumps tomorrow so I can buy new tubing and everything. I figure boob milk, a place to sleep, and some diapers is all we'll really need initially ... right? A little more organization might be nice though so I just moved up my due date on my registry so that I can take advantage of that completion discount right after the baby shower. Oh did I tell you guys? I can go to my baby shower! It's next weekend.

This is the fastest.pregnancy.ever for me. I seriously cannot believe that I'm closing in on 30 weeks here. And yes I am stressing about being ready. Getting everything ready for the baby is one thing, but getting everything ready for Christmas is entirely another! Seriously, I absolutely must finish the Christmas shopping before Halloween. And then get everything wrapped before the end of November. This weekend we bought the carseat, set up the crib and got a little more set up in the baby room. But there is still such a list of stuff I am wanting to do before this babe comes and I am panicking a little at the countdown. I am preparing for a 37-38 weeker so that leaves me 10 weeks or less....:eek:
