38 weeks 2 days, C section scheduled for 39 weeks 4 days. At least I finally got all my diapers prepped (enough) and bag packed with 1/2 the newborn diapers ready to review. So tired of hearing are you ready. No. I’m not. I already have 3 kids. Let’s be real, this is going to rock our worlds. I’ll be down and out for at least 6 weeks. No matter how much I love this little stinker, we’re going to have a huge adjustment coming and it’s overwhelming to think about sometimes.
I only have a week of lesson plans done and hope my hubby can take over after that with my suggestions because it’s exhausting to write everything out, since I do it all by hand. I’ll have weeks worth of things to record on his memory AFTER I recover.
I’ve cleaned the kitchen counters and cabinets, the pantry/laundry/mudroom, have the Christmas tree up (hubby did that), working on small projects and clutter that have been put off for 2 years–when last baby was born, garage got everything tidied up, nursery is ready except for making up the crib… not even nesting, this is how I roll every little while when I get energy (this has taken weeks, not hours, ya’ll), and I’m not sleeping well because the toddler isn’t sleeping well. My attitude depends a lot on how deprived I feel (darn you gestational diabetes)… I roll between manic energy and exhaustion. But I know any day now it will be pure exhaustion. I can’t just brightly say ‘yes I’m so ready’… because I’m not.
