After riding the wave with Shelia to the end (we think)
I am beginning to think about how in the heck am I going to make it to 38 wks, for the already scheduled c-section. I know that is the goal but at almost 30 weeks, egad it seems like an eternity away. At least it is Christmas season right now and that will offer a ton of distraction. but January is when I am most worried about...
When did you all have hospital bags packed? I am starting to think about what to take this time...
Although it feels good that now we are in December, my neighbor asked when they are due I happily said "next month" !!
I packed the babies around 32 weeks..mine..the night before I went in for my induction! You can do it. I made it to 36 and 3 but I know I could I have made it to my original induction date (a week later). Like you said, Christmas will be a distraction, and who knows, maybe they'll come a little earlier (we hope not...but maybe). you're doing awesome Mama, you can make it. I know its hard but just keep thinking, the longer they are in your belly, the less likely they'll be in the NICU.
Hmm.. I think I did not pack (hospital bedrest at 31wks and home bedrest at 28wks), so I just had ppl bring me things as needed, so pack now. lol

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
Well, I was really late about it. I first started gathering a few things at about 32 weeks but then actually got it together at about 36 weeks. Then we decided we needed a new car so we bought that FOUR HOURS before I went into labor and installed the car seats a mere two hours before labor! I'm fairly certain the babies just didn't want to be seen in a 20-year-old car on their first car ride.
