What did you do for your final days?

Being that my baby decided she didn't want to grow anymore and I am due today, I am being induced on Tuesday.

What are some things you guys did on your final days before your baby was here?

  • SLEEP! Recheck hospital bags, make sure cameras batteries where all charged, made or had family members make and freeze meals so no cooking was needed when you & baby come home, dreft wash all baby onsies, wash clothes, bedding etc. had my toenails painted LOL- and most importantly enjoy those last few kicks- You will miss that feeling : )

  • I was also being induced, but really didn't want to be so we had sex for like 3 days straight on and off trying to get me to go into labor....it didn't work. We had fun trying though :)

  • My water broke three weeks before I was due so I didn't have a chance to have those "last" few days without a baby. If I had known, I would have slept. I would have enjoyed being bored. I would have also made sure everything was ready for when he came home. If you can, have someone help you prepare meals for you for your first week home. But really, just enjoy the last few days you have by yourself. You start a whole chapter in your life on Tuesday, so finish this chapter up on a good relaxing note! Congratulations!
