We made it to full term. Hallelujah! Technically I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow but I am being optimistic that she'll make her big debut a little earlier than her due date. Don't laugh. Maybe I will be right! And then maybe I'll be the one laughing when she does come early. We'll see.
In other news, I did eight loads of laundry yesterday. Eight! You see, the diapers I am using (more on that in a later post) need to be washed three times prior to using them to get the hemp fibers in their most absorbent state. And then I washed all of the wee-one's clothes. And folded them. And I caught myself smiling at the thought of actually meeting her. She'll be here so soon! If you think about it, though... she's already here. She just lives inside my belly! Soon enough, she'll come out. And I can hardly wait.
I know that looks like A LOT of stuff. Did you have a ton of clothes for your baby? I have bought a handful of things. One of my co-workers didn't find out the sex of her baby so she had a TON of gender-neutral and more girly stuff that she never used with her little boy.... so she gave it all to me. Onesies, pajamas, and swaddling blankets galore!

yay! congrats love! i think i have about 8 loads of laundry waiting at home for me, none including diapers though. snaps to you for using those!ReplyDelete
I am so excited for you! And it must be soon now, because I specifically remember doing ALL the laundry in the house just days before each of my babies was born. It's amazing how a mama prepares and somehow just knows!ReplyDelete
And yes, we had a ton of clothes, but you really do need them. The first few months there is so much spit-up and other bodily fluids, you will be changing her outfit at least three times per day (if she is anything like mine)!
Good luck! I can't wait to hear all about it!
I am SO excited for you!!! We had tons of clothes for Dylan, AND for Adriana... we just had many of them for the wrong season, so I didn't use tons of them. I can't believe you are all ready 37 weeks, and hope for your sake this little lady comes early! :)ReplyDelete
