Re: When to....

I have my baby clothes washed, but wasn't planning to pack my bags yet. I'm still at 30 weeks though, so I feel like I have some time.

Re: When to....

I am 32 weeks today, so I should at least order my homebirth supplies, lol, and the tub liner. I think everything else would be okay.

Re: When to....

Baby clothes were washed the other day. My girls (7 & 10) were quite eager to wash and fold them & put them in the drawers, lol..
I haven't packed yet, but will in the next couple weeks.

I think March will be my main "get ready" month. I have already washed clothes, but that was because I was crazy nesting a couple of weeks ago. I hope to have nursery ready to go by the end of this month and then spend March cleaning, organizing, and cooking. I am going to need to stock our freezer because I know that meal prep is going to be difficult with 3 little ones.

My EDD isn't till the very end of April and I was 41 weeks with both my other two, so I figure I still have plenty of time.

Re: When to....

well.. I wanted to wash a pair of jeans, but there wasn't enough for a load... so...... baby clothes are in the washer lol

I am somewhat obsessed with my hospital bag at the moment, so I think I'm going to start really packing it. Just to get it off my mind. Still plenty of time and no worries.. but man, the fewer things I have to obsess about in the middle of the night? the better!

I am really really resisting getting out the swing and such.. but I know that the next time I need to wash a pair of jeans.... prolly gonna have to go get those things so I can wash the paddings. I just don't want anything additional to mop and vacuum around, you know?

I guess there's a benefit to having a favorite pair of maternity jeans and wearing them so much

I've already started washing baby clothes. I have a lot so I am really glad I started early. I am just doing a little at a time and enjoying it. I'm not sure when I will pack my hospital bag. Washing diapers is going to be another huge task.

Re: When to....

Just today I washed up all the bassinet sheets, changing table cover, and new blankets.

Trying not to go overboard with getting everything ready right now.

Re: When to....

I'm desperately waiting for my brother to finish cleaning out the dresser he's giving us on 'long term loan' so I can start washing and organizing and getting ready! After my shower at work I'm ready to go this weekend and get the rest of the goodies to get my nursery set up!

Re: When to....

okay, well, since my update earlier, I went to the store and pretty much the mom part of my hospital bag is packed.

once I pull the baby clothes out of the dryer, that part should get done too.

33 weeks and happy to not be thinking/obsessing about it anymore. Just want to ride out the rest of the pregnancy and enjoy it.

I'm a hair over 32 weeks, and everything is washed and packed. Finished it last week.
