I can't believe I am only 7 or so weeks away from Levi. It has flown by. I'm just now *really* thinking about it. I don't worry about stuff til what comes before it is over. So, when I first got pregnant I just thought about everything going on at the time. Then came summer, so I concentrated on the summer... then starting off the school year. Well, the next "big thing" is baby. I'm checking things off my list. I ordered my diapers. I'm washing baby clothes, making sure I have what I need. I still have to get downtown and get a permit to finish the bonus room. *what a pain* The electrician can't get his until I get mine (didn't know I had to get one) and we can't move to the next step (drywall) until the electricity is inspected... and you need the permit for that. I said I was going to make myself go this week, but I just couldn't. I really don't want to drag Elijah there b/c I have no idea how long it will take or what is involved and I didn't have time to go when he was at preschool. bleh. If it wasn't all the way downtown it wouldn't be so bad.
I typed up my birth preferences today... Don't cut the cord til it stops pulsating, evaluate baby on my chest, no hep B shot, and no eye drops. I also want to be able to drink fluids during labor (not just eat ice). Fluids with CALORIES. No episiotomy, no pacifiers... stuff like that. I requested the nurse I had last time. She was AWESOME. She may not be working, but if she is, I want her! I won't hesitate to be induced either b/c my doc is incredible and I want him (though I wouldn't be induced if this was my first).
Just got my Instahangers in. I'm hoping to get them installed tonight, just in time for the big load to finish drying :) and the one waiting to wash... but I'll have to manage a drill and an Elijah. We'll see how that goes.
