It's September!!!!

Sometimes it felt like Sept would never get here. But now it is! Smile Are any of y'all "ready" for LO to be here as far as having everything ready goes?

We certainly aren't. We need to move the car seats around in the van and install one for LO. It is going to feel so strange having A&A in the rear seat instead of right behind me... We need to set up the PNP in our room to use for the first few months. We have a baby bed, but it's not set up yet. I have clothes ready, but DH isn't done refinishing the dresser that's been in our garage since April.... I only have 1/2 of my toiletries bag packed, and no clothes ready to go to the hospital. I do however have the "big brother"/ "big sister" kits/ gifts ready for A&A. I do need to pack them a bag to take to my mom's too when it's time to head to the hospital. I am behind with laundry, and other bits of housework. We haven't cooked the first meal to put in the freezer...

I didn't show any signs of progression this last week. She says LO is still sitting pretty high. I'd like to get through this week at least if I can. Since I won't be at work, I might actually have a chance to get everything done.

This is my first week off work too and have slowly been getting things done over the weekend. I have half my bag pack and a list of things to pack at the last minute. I have a lot of cleaning to do around the house to finish off. I have to pack a bag for the boys too. I'm freaking out slightly with all these cramps, BH's and contractions I've been having though. I didn't have any of this with either of the boys until around 39 weeks and had them at 40 and 40+2, so I'm hoping that this one stays baking for a bit longer as I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow. Still getting more and more excited though. So close!!!

At this point I am ready even if I wasn't!! I have everything set up already, but I would like to rewash the bassinet again since we have a cat and I a sure there are cat hair in there somewhere. My bag is ready with the exception of a toothbrush, some snacks, and the baby's paci. So bring on the labor I just want to hold my LO!!

BH and pressure was a lot more common for me around 36 weeks this time, too. However, the past week or two they have slowed down a considerable bit. I almost feel like I'm going backward instead of forward.

Been having lots of pressure and at times I feel like I'm leaking fluid. I can't tell if it's pee or fluid because my down there parts are swollen.

So ready! My house is not organized or cleaned like I would like but that is impossible with a five year old and a two year old not to mention the fact my grandparents, mother and moms bf will be staying with the kids at my house and for about at least a week of the babies life. So my house will be a mess anyways with so many people. I have my bag packed, babies packed and am just waiting...
