i know the baby will come when she is ready, i have been having little 'warm up' contractions for a little over a week, but seriously-i am ready to lose it right about now. how do i keep my sanity!? her room is ready, i have daipers and wipes up the anty, her bassinet is all set up and cute and pink and stuff, the bags are packed and in the trunk of the car ready to go....
i am so uncomftorble i cant really nap and it is painful to move or walk or even get up from i sitting position-dh is going crazy too. what else is there to do to keep occupied, my house is as clean as it was when we moved in its ridiculous...!!!!

  • take a bath. and tomorrow go "shopping". Walk around for an hour, or more! just enjoy the last week.. or less :) congrats on not being induced though, that's huge for this country. maybe you can make something fro the baby? wal-mart and many craft stores have kits to make bibs, etc, and you could cross stitch something. the pattern is already on it, so you stitch over it! i love doing crafty things like that lol.

  • Try to take your mind off of it :-) You could be me, I'm 9 days past mine. Take a walk, make a cake, read a really good book! Good luck!

  • have a night of raw, hot sex!! If anything it will keep your mind off it all. Besides it could kick you into gear!! Good luck!

  • what to do... what to do...
    You might fill your freezer with meals for postpartum, hire yourself a birth & postpartum doula, get your errands out of the way, design your birth announcements, get on auto billpay, get a massage, take a breastfeeding class, practice coping techniques...
    I could think of more... lol!
