The To-Do List


39 weeks, 3 days. Is this my last post before baby arrives? Who knows! I’m not feeling very labor-y, but I suppose that doesn’t mean anything. I do have a nasty cold and I feel like crap. I’ve heard flu-like symptoms can be a sign of labor, but I’m not sure about cold-like symptoms. I’ll keep you updated if they are!

We do still need to hang a few pictures up in the baby’s room. And I don’t have a car seat installed in my car yet (for shame!) But the car seat’s been in my husband’s car, and I don’t foresee a situation where we’re not coming home from the hospital in any car other than his. So that’s not a big issue right now.

I DID write a birth plan…I didn’t print it, but…details, details. Kent’ll print it tomorrow at work.

So, yeah, there’s a few things I need to do. When the hell’s that nesting stuff supposed to happen, anyway?
