Getting closer

It's unfathomable to me how quickly time is passing. We're just about at the end of October which means that we're going to be a family of four within the next 6 weeks. I think I'm officially 36 weeks along give or take a few days but the idea that I could have a new baby NEXT MONTH is crazy.

Still on our to do list:
Attempt to put the infant seat in my car to see if we can hold off a few more months on getting the van

Assemble crib and figure out where in the heck to put it. Buy mattress for crib.

Pack bag for birth center.

Take Bradley refresher class (scheduled for next weekend).

Find breast pump/bag/cords/etc. Order replacement parts.

Wrap up loose ends at work.

Not too much to do, luckily. We have diapers. I have breasts. Everything else is gravy, right?

I had a midwife appointment on Weds. and we discovered that this guy is sunny side up. That certainly explains the back pain I've been having. I have some exercises to help encourage him to flip over - we'll see! I'm just glad he's head down. I'm on the weekly plan as far as appointments go now. There are still 2 midwives I haven't met - I've really liked everyone so far, hopefully these too as well. I got a little mushy at my last appointment talking about labor and nursing a newborn. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this baby.

Glad you're doing well!! I hope this birth goes smoothly. Time has really wizzed by, hasn't it?

Can't believe how quickly the time has whirled by. I'm due in the Spring and can't even fathom THAT, let alone next month! :) Good luck and enjoy the home stretch
