Today I'm 27 weeks-- that's like one week away from the LAST trimester. Woohoo! March 13th is our official due date, but at our last ultrasound they said they think he will come before then at the rate he is growing. Before??? I mentally need to prepare myself for going into labor any day in March. March is like less than 3 months away. Errmerrgerrd.
This is what my current state looks like:
(PS thanks everyone for all your nice comments on FB!! You know how to make a girl feel loved.)
I promise to be better about pics over these last few months :)
Now everyone has been telling me to get as much done as possible before the last trimester because it flies by. And I believe them. We have all of our baby classes scheduled and ready to go. We have a general plan for labor and delivery. But...again....the nursery hasn't even BEGUN. And here comes the huge wave of anxiety I get just thinking about it. Are we way behind on this? Is this normal? All advice and reassurance welcome.
Here's the reason for the delay: We have 100 things to sell before we can even begin on it and Craigslist isn't cutting it. I mean nothing is selling y'all. Thus, a garage sale might have to be the answer. On top of that, the nursery is where all of our dogs' stuff lives (kennels etc) and they need to be moved which also isn't possible until more stuff sells. Then we are waiting until Christmas to see what Santa brings (aka my mom has hinted about a crib coming down the chimney). Finally, it needs to be painted and that can't happen until I am out of town and away from the fumes. And then I think about the little things like, we don't even have baby hangers to put his clothes on!!! Or....there are a million jackets where his clothes are supposed to be!!! Then I vent on my blog apparently and I feel much better. So thanks for listening to meeeeee.
Hopefully I will have a post later today telling everyone I have calmed down. And how good the Chik-fil-A I just ate was. Mmmm waffle fries.
