8 weeks!!!! Checking in~

I was thinking today that I could be meeting this little one in like 8 weeks if she decides to come at 37 weeks like her brother.....That isn't that long at all!!!

I am a little stressed though becuase we are moving in 5 weeks, and I have no idea how that is going to work, since I am guessing I will be pretty useless at that point and I want to have everything set up before she gets here. On the plus side we are moving to a MUCH bigger house which makes me giddy with excitement after being crammed into 800 sq ft for the last year...BLAH!

Also yesterday one of our neighbors asked me if we needed any baby stuff, and I could honestly not think of anything, which makes me feel good that we are prepared in that sense. The only thing I still want to get is a baby sling of some sort but I still need to make a choice on which one.....

Anyway how is everyone else? Anything new and exciting going on? Anyone getting nervous about how close we are getting???

Yay for a bigger house! Moving so close to baby's arrival would seriously stress me out, but it sounds like it's for the better so I'm excited for you. And I can't believe you don't need anything!?! I'm anxious for my shower to get here so I can finally get my hands on some baby stuff! I'm trying really hard not to buy everything NOW so it's ready, just in case.
My doc is taking out my cerclage and taking me off all meds and bed rest at 36 weeks, so LO could be here in 6 weeks! Eek!!
I can't remember, do you have a name yet?

EEEKKKKK!! 6 weeks!! How exciting!! I bet you can't wait to be off of bedrest?! I am a total type A and have been buying things since like 11 weeks lol I couldn't help myself lol. We do have a name Paisley Florianna, (She is named after my DH's late Gma and they will have the same initials and middle name).

Do you have a name locked down yet?

How exciting that we are getting so close!

I was thinking today that I still have 10-12 weeks left (DS came at 37 weeks, c/s will be scheduled for 39), but after watching a friend struggle with pre-e and living in the hospital threatening to deliver any day starting at 24 weeks, I think I will be more grateful this time for every day that I manage to stay pregnant!

Anyway, we're doing well. I unpacked, washed, sorted by size, and hung up all the baby clothes, jammies, swaddles, jammies and blankets from 0-6 months. Still to do: Reassemble crib and changing table, go through one more storage bin, get out big things from garage, and pick a name. I told myself I would wait until after the SSA popularity list is released around Mother's Day before making any decisions. Smile

Amanda - Oh you must be so excited to be thinking about getting off of bed rest. How many weeks have you been on it now?

Carissa - Moving does sound scary, but better now than after the baby, I guess! One of the girls on my other BB moved from the South to Hawaii with a 2 week old! You can definitely do it! Will you have family or friends to help unpack?
