Updated Accountability Thread...

for those of us not lucky enough or far enough along to be holding and snuggling our newbies yet!

Yesterday was my baby shower so I got LOTS of clothes meaning more washing/organizing was in my future.

Here's what I have gotten done today:
Washed all clothes
Reorganized my tubs of clothes (newborn all the way up to toddler sizes)
Cleaned out my messy van ( it was BAAADDD!)
Installed the MyRide for Mason in said van

Here's what I still need to do:
Clean up Nolan's room (poor kid didn't mess it up so he doesn't need to clean it - what's with parents who bring kids to baby showers and then don't make them CLEAN up after themselves???)
Reorganize the changing table/dresser so the clothes AND diapers can share
Clean out and reorganize my closet (so the clothes that hang can fit!)
Buy a hanging closet organizer for baby's stuff

Re: Updated Accountability Thread...

I think I'm mostly ready. I have a list of things to do, but its mostly just to keep myself busy. I need to:

Keep taking prenatals, fish oil pill, RRL tea (2xs a day now), and EPO pills.

Drink plenty of water. I got a new 32 oz bottle that I need to fill up and use 2xs a day.

We aren't really settled on names yet! Eek!

I don't have a swing yet, but might get one as a baby gift, so idk if I'll order that or not.

I could do more organizing around the house, it just depends on if the bug to do that hits me again or not.

This week I'm going to try and focus on keeping the dishes and laundry done and just rest as much as I can and enjoy some quality time with my three girls at home. We need to get through another full week of homeschooling and maybe work ahead a bit.

What am I forgetting???!

Re: Updated Accountability Thread...

Here's what I need to do-
Put the infant carseat together. I washed the cover and stuff but I have no idea how to get it back on, lol. It might not get done until after he's born.

Pack a bag just in case we have to transport. yeah right I'm probably not going to do that. We live 5 minutes from the hospital anyway.

Finish my bathing suit top for the birth. I've been procrastinating because my sewing machine is packed up and difficult to get to.

Clean/bleach the tub. I generally don't use bleach, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to give it a really good cleaning before the birth but not RIGHT before.

Do thank you cards!!!! This is one of the biggest things on my list. I am terrible at them.

Fix up the sheets with a clean layer underneath the mattress protector. So not looking forward to this because the bed is up against the wall...

What I have gotten done-
Bought everything on the birth supply list and organized it for the midwife
washed diapers and washclothes
made a few freezer meals and stocked up on meat, broth, and a few easy things for my husband/mom to make

Re: Updated Accountability Thread...

OOOh I forgot

Finish packing my labor/hospital bag!!!
Do my thank you cards

I didn't get the closet organized yet and I didn't buy the hanging organizer - so those are to do yet... otherwise everything is done.

However, DS1 got a concussion last night so I'm home with him today so I might get it done today!

Re: Updated Accountability Thread...

DH wants me to take it easy until our c/s. We tried walking for 2 hrs yesterday morning and I was in such pain afterwards, my left leg locked up in the socket. So I am couch-bound today with maybe some laundry-folding thrown in to keep things interesting. Still to do before my c/s:
prep diapers
sew a pail liner (might take 15 min total)
pack my bag- I will probably do this the day before I go in
I don't see going into labor before my c/s. I was a week overdue with DD and have had absolutely no signs of labor besides the random painful b/h.
