Ok, parents, grandparents, observant people... HELP!
Last night I was reading the 3rd trimester chapter in one of my pregnancy books and I about fell out of bed when I read "Enjoy the last few weeks of your pregnancy". WHAT? When did that happen? Now, I have 77 days left, that's what the ticker at the top of this blog says. That's 10 weeks (phew, easy math!) ... (correction: 11 weeks. OH MY- I NEED HELP!) RELIEF. But WAIT...heart beat increasing... rapidly racing... what if #2 follows suit and arrives 5 weeks early? OH MY GOODNESS! Where did my pregnancy go? Did I sign up for this? Am I SANE?
Ok, seriously. I've done NOTHING to prepare for this peanut. WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE FOR #2? I didn't let my sister throw me a baby shower, 'cause I have lots of itty bitty girly stuff. Can I simply pull out my rubbermaid of newborn clothes, set-up the bassinet pack-n-play, buy a pack of newborn disposables and call it a day?
And as for nesting, oh my. Husband has been rubbing elbows with farmers for the past few days at a conference and he might not want to come home. I'm BURSTING with inexpensive ideas of things that need to be done NOW! I spent quite awhile googling "how to paint kitchen cabinets" last night (this is your fault Starr Family Blog!). I won't go into details until it's done because there are 2 fathers in my life who are very anti-painting wood. But I have outdated cabinets and I'M NESTING!
So really, what do you do the 2nd time around? Should I buy a few new things for the babe? Should I have a gift registry somewhere? Should I ... ?
