3 weeks

My last 3 weeks of being pregnant. Sigh. Both welcome, and sad.

I'm due in less than 2 weeks, but if he is stubborn and needs to be evicted, it will be 3 weeks from today. So the longest I will be pregnant is 3 more weeks. (Considering my boys were 10 and 11 days late, I'm assuming it really WILL be 3 weeks from today!)

This is making me feel like I need to get stuff done.....set up the bassinet??? Deep clean the bathroom?

On the other hand, even though I could "go" at any time, I'm also pretty confident that he will be late. So I also sort of feel like I have all the time in the world.....LOL!

That's so exciting! It's getting so close! I have 2 weeks and 4 days left from today! And this is my very last pregnancy too! I'm kind of sad like you but also thrilled to meet this new munchkin! Hopefully little boy doesn't arrive late like the others!

Yay, getting so close but I completely understand the feeling that you have time still. I was feeling like it was forever away...still hoping to have a good 3 wks myself.

Watch this one shock you and come early! LOL.

This is our last but I'm not feeling super sad about it, yet. Hubby says I will once baby is out but I'm not so sure. LOL

I'm 37 weeks tomorrow...so really any time. DD was planned c-sect at 38w4d so I *think* I have time...but she was never head down...which is a whole different ball game. I have stuff to do but technically a baby could come home today and we'd have what we need.

I still feel like officially, I have all the time in the world. And some days I feel like I will be pregnant forever and other days I feel like I just might not make it to the end of the day. I have no idea how this will end up! I feel like my nesting urgency has kicked up big time the past 24 hours. I have spent the day doing projects that need to get done that I can do from bed (I stay in bed as much as humanly possible during the week or I just won't make it through e crazy weekends I have had lately). I did a bunch of projects that I've been putting off for months and months... I love that nesting urge.

I feel similar to you Sandra. I know this is my last baby and I'm sad that these are the last little movements I'll feel and I love the last few weeks of anticipation (maybe that's weird...) but I'm also really looking forward to getting my body back, wearing my normal clothes, not having heartburn 24/7 and on and on. But it's suddenly hitting me this baby IS coming soon :eek: My doc isn't a big fan of pushing much past your EDD so I'd bet at most I have ~ 18 days left before he'd induce me.

I feel like I will be twiddling my thumbs for the next 3 weeks or so, even though I still have a bunch of stuff to do (DS's homeschool stuff, birthing class) or wait for (DH has overtime he needs to get through) or whatever. I am ready to be able to sleep comfortably.

Oh, I'd love to sleep on my belly!!!!! Can't wait.

I don't have any diapers yet. I guess I should buy some. It's not time for a Costco diaper trip until the beginning of June though, so I'll likely just wait til then. If anything did happen, diapers aren't hard to come by within 2 minutes of our house. Also I need pads and breast pads and some new pacifiers.....meh.....still got 3 weeks Wink

LOL, I also figure there isn't anything I "have" to have ready before baby gets here. We can make a run to the store on the way home from the hospital. I haven't even washed any baby clothes yet; it'll probably all fit in one load. I can handle a load of laundry after she is born. Wink

I finally bought some diapers and pads a couple days ago. I figure I have around 2-3 weeks still too. It's nice when you've had enough babies to really get a good idea of when the next one will likely come. Wink I will NOT miss being pregnant... not at all!!

I still think I have tons of time...but I'm stressing about getting stuff done at work. So I'm putting due dates at the back of my mind.

I've been in nesting mode for a few weeks, but it has kicked up this past week.

Right now I'm obsessed with getting my car cleaned. Who knows why?

Also, I want our bedroom deep cleaned! Nursery is pretty much done. (I'll post pics) Baby clothes washed and put away. DS is obsessed with going in there all the time. He "checks" on his baby sister's room all the time, lol!

my hospital bag right now is just a bunch of stuff thrown into a destination maternity bag from the store, lol!

I know its early for that, but I wasn't prepared with DS at 35 weeks and want to be more prepared this time around.

Sometime I wish nesting meant 'cleaning' around here. This place is a mess!

Haha! Hospital bag...I should get on that. 37 weeks today!

Nesting has been in full swing for a couple of weeks. But I really haven't needed to do much because we have all hand me down stuff from my other kids. Plus I don't know which gender to wash. So I washed a few things for each gender then I have the boxes marked for which to wash after we find out what the baby is! Everything else is down from the attic and the nursery won't be done until baby comes either cause I have bedding for each gender. But bassinet is ready to go along with the swing and bouncer. But bottles and pacis are washed and ready to go. So now we just wait! 2weeks and 3 days left!!

I wake up each day and think,"could this be the day?". I am ready now. My mom is here, house is clean, can't sleep. I do need to clean my bathroom though!

Oh believe me, I am not naturally a very good housekeeper! The kids surprisingly have been helping me keep their things picked up at the end of the day. It also helps having my mom, because she cleans everything!
