34 weeks

34 weeks down, 6 to go.

SIX!

Ok, I’m getting excited!

What’s IN:

Contractions:   That’s right:Contractions, not Braxton Hicks.   I’ve been having a few here and there, but they started really coming last night.  I was cooking dinner, and had one.  I just sat on the floor, surprised.  2 min later, another.  5 minutes later, another.  Finally, I got a clue, laid down on the couch and proceeded to chug down a gallon of water.  (better that than IV at the hospital).  Within the hour, they gradually spaced out, and I had a couple every hour or so instead of every few minutes.  Hmmmmm.  I didn’t call the midwife because I knew what she would say:

Lay down

Drink a lot of water.

Call me back in one hour if they don’t slow down.

Yeah, being a Labor and Delivery nurse comes in handy sometimes.

I woke up this morning, and was still having a few, but much better than last night.

Gifts: They are arriving in the mail now! It’s like Christmas!!!!  One of my best and oldest friends sent the changing table I didn’t think I would get.  I LOVE her!!

Pediatrician Search: I know NOTHING about Pediatricians, except to know that I am supposed to interview one.

Lists:  I have a running list of things I still need to go out and get.  Lord, I feel like I will never be ready!!

What’s OUT:

The cold:  I finally got a humidifier, and it worked miracles in terms of me being able to sleep at night.  I didn’t need it last night at all!  The coughing remains occasionally.  I just have a lot of mucous that needs to come out(YUCK!!)

So, my goal right now is to get everything put together and organized in the next two weeks.  I want to be READY by 36 weeks.  I don’t think I am going to deliver  or anything, I just know that i am not going to feel like doing a damn thing by November.  So Halloween is the deadline to:

  • Wash all of those baby clothes and put them away.
  • Finish the nursery(ie, c-Dub needs to put up the changing table, move the glider upstairs and I need to chest of drawers).
  • Pick a pediatrician
  • Get everything else that we need to function when a baby arrives.
  • Pick a name for this child!

Hmmmmm.  At least the pack and play is up in the bedroom……………

    I agree, L&D knowledge can really be a blessing. Also, a curse, depending on your perspective. *sigh* But I also know that being the control freak that I am, I’d rather know than not know. Then I panic.
