Wow, time is flying!!

Well time is flying isn't it?

In my bigger due date club on a different site, we've had TWO births in the last week. Preemie, but beautiful. And I see Rachael in the ddc above us had her baby. It feels like it's coming so fast!
I'm starting to panic a bit Wink

Definitely. We are now at the time where DD was born, and that is very humbling....... I am trying to get prepared since anytime after now is considered bonus time for us. I even went to trader joes today and got dried fruit snacks to pack in my bag.... I think thats a serious preparation move!!!!!, haha.
I've almost got my hospital bag packed, and I've give DH a serious to-do list. One of which is decide on the name.......
Time is ticking away.

I am putting most things baby off until after christmas too. I'm just so busy and tired and trying not to overwhelm myself.
Both of my babies came a couple hours before my due date, so I'm pretty sure he's stuck for awhile. (not to mention he's shoved up in my ribs, i'm carrying so dang high it isn't funny) He'll drop at some point, but certainly hasn't been yet!

I'm starting to do the worry/panic thing though. From 'what if i don't remember how to do change a diaper?' all the way down to 'what if my baby doesn't like me?' I know it's all irrational and my common sense calms me down, but still they are there in the back of my head. I think it will all disappear when I get my baby to hold!

I am more worried about the actual labor... and whether or not this baby will nurse as well as Lilly did. Foe me breast feeding was so rewarding. I hate the thought of having to use formula plus its was expensive and smelly.
