Re: Procrastinators Unite Part 2

Well, I only have about 2-3wks left, so my list is short.

wash baby's diapers
call about birth tub (J is bugging me about this.. at this point, I'm fine with saving the $150 rental fee)
make sure my friend sends me the rest of my newborn clothing
put car seat back in van
get glider up to bedroom
shop for 'birth supplies' (that will have to wait until this weekend)

Re: Procrastinators Unite Part 2

I'm kind of scared to see exactly what my list looks like! I need to get on it though, I've only got about 2 weeks left.


Finish washing and sorting baby clothes
Put all NB/small clothes in dresser
Finish sewing the crib set
Get cosleeper set up
Buy some nursing bras and nursing pads
Hem up some flannel wipes
Wash covers to bouncy and carseat and put both back together
Wash NB stash
Finish organizing closets and craft room
Install carseat
Pack hospital bag
Make some freezer meals, or at very least a detailed menu/shopping list for DH
Gently remind DH to shampoo upstairs carpets, esp the nursery
Make baby announcement list
Make backup babysitter arrangements for toddler
Pack toddler's overnight bag

That's all I can think of for now, although I'm sure I'll come up with more before the week is out.

Re: Procrastinators Unite Part 2

I still have ten weeks to go, but I'm so ready to be done! I have enough crossed off my list now that I almost don't care about the rest. But these are my biggest to-do's:

Make arrangements for older kids during delivery
Pack hospital bag
Install car seat in van

Umm, that might be it. I've got the baby clothes sorted out and a few outfits washed and put away. The car seat is ready, but needs to be installed. It's mostly just house projects like making a few extra meals and keeping up on the laundry now. The next ten weeks can't go by fast enough for my taste!

Re: Procrastinators Unite Part 2

get Breastfeeding stuff (warm/cool gel pack, plug for pump)
get boppy cover
get Lana's coming home outfit
get some socks, hats, etc
pack hospital bag
decide on a hospital
pay doula
get a babysitter for DD#1
AVOID DHs family asking where we will have baby and what the sex is so they CANT show up.
Move or decide if we are before or after Lana comes
get more wool and CD extras (doublers, fleece liners, MF towels)
get sheets
get changing table

and i think thats all.

Re: Procrastinators Unite Part 2

I have a ton to do!

-Get the contractor over here to build a bedroom in unfinished space in basement. We only have 3 small bedrooms. No room in any of them to add a baby and their things!
-paint and decorate said room
-paint the kids rooms cause they are white and everyone will be shuffled around to make room for baby anyway!
-buy a dresser for baby
-buy a radian carseat for one of the older kids, trying to fit all 5 in current minivan. Everyone still uses a carseat of some kind.
-install infant seat in van
-wash baby clothes and put in dresser
-finish nb/sm stash
-buy a moby wrap and beco or babyhawk with insert ( might ask for this for christmas)
- buy a few more blankets.
I'm sure there is more I am forgetting!

I'd have to agree, sex is definitely high in the priority list at this point!!
