I still have to pack the hospital bags
Pack a bag for ds to go to his grandmas that day/night
Look up relaxing music on computer and put it on my phone
Practice more hynobirthing techniques
Take my 2 hr waterbirth class next week
Find an appropriate outfit to labor in the water
Mail in the registration form (will do this week)
Clean my breastpump tubes and everything
Write up a birth plan and make copies
Install carseat
Pack a bag of drinks n snacks for the hospital



Man that is more than I was expecting. I will start narrowing these down!!
Thankfully all the baby furniture is ready to be used. Stocked up on newborn diapers and wipes and I washed all the clothing. Need to boil the new nuks.

I'm having my baby next Monday (38 weeks 1 day today) and I just need to get diapers and wipes. I packed his clothes for our 4 day stay after my c-section. I will pack my clothes the night before because I have to wear them this week because they are all that fit my belly lol!

I am 36 weeks 3 days. I will be having a c-section on the 17th. I am all set for baby at home and packed for baby and me for hospital. I still have some things I would like to get done at home, Christmas decorations all down and put away. I want my house as clean as possible, clean bedding on all beds, bathrooms clean. But other that I think I'm ready :)

 I may be having mine then too! I'm 38 weeks today, and the doctor and I discussed a C-Section for the 6th. Did they already tell you that you'd be there for 4 days afterwards, or have you been there / done that before and just know from experience?

 I'm pretty much ready. 38 weeks today, so I really just want to go into labor. This is my first, so I am a nervous wreck, to say the least. We have to install the car seat and put the stroller together. Everything's washed though, stocked up on diapers and wipes awhile back. My bag and baby's bag are packed, which I will probably unpack and repack at least a half a dozen times more. I have been cleaning like a fiend. I do have some loose ends to tie up for work. I am a teacher, so I am finished with my substitute plans and have all my materials copied, but I just need to print out my plans and detailed instructions and organize everything. That won't take long though. Otherwise, I want to do vain things like get my eyebrows waxed and my nails done one more time, LOL. Oh, and spend some time with my horses who have really enjoyed some time off as this pregnancy finishes up!

I'll be 39 weeks Thurs. and still have to pack my bag and have DH get together whatever he wants to take. 

Carseat has to be installed too, but that will have to wait I guess. My mom is giving us a ride to and from the hospital and keeping DD for us when I'm in labor. She let me install DD's seat ahead of time, but won't let me install the baby's ahead of time too because "it will take up too much room" even though she is the only one ever in the car besides us..She's weird and has to make everything complicated. lol  I guess I'll be installing a friggin carseat while I'm in early labor.

This is my fourth c-section and I have stayed 4 days every time:-) It's nice to have the 4 days to bond with baby before going home.
