I am officially a stay-at-home-mom right now.
There’s a lot I could say about this, but in a nutshell, it came into place because I’ve been having lots of contractions and other pre-birth symptoms for the last month and my midwife said “enough” at our last appointment. So I’m technically on disability leave until after the baby comes.
With this bittersweet turn of events in my life (THRILLED because I get to be with my 18-month-old daughter, but also nervous because I think I’m going to have an early baby and my house is currently torn apart due to remodeling, I have nothing ready for a baby, and by golly, I want him to be able to breathe when he’s born, so I’d really appreciate it if he waited until we were 37 weeks along so that I don’t have to visit him in the NICU and so that we can have our water birth!), also comes the distressing news that I don’t currently have Internet access at my house. You know what that means–things will be delayed!
Because you’re all awesome, though, I know you’ll hang in there until I get the Internet at my house (advertisers, anyone?). 🙂 I won’t be able to draw the winners of any of the Baby-Mama Shower contests today, so feel free to keep entering until I announce on here that they are closed (see? aren’t you glad you read this post now?). Piece by piece, I’ll continue to post the rest of the Baby-Mama Shower reviews and giveaways and I also have some other REEEEEEEEEAAALLY exciting things planned for the upcoming months!
So that’s that until I have more time to write (I’m at the library right now and only have 36 remaining minutes until my time online is up, lol).
hope you have some time to enjoy your 18 month old before that baby comes!! Take it easy~!
Good luck staying out of the NICU I know how scary/worrisome that can be!
Take it easy, Mama. You're in my thoughts.
My last baby came 3wks early (and I was a scheduled c-section), 5 days after we moved into a new home! The baby's bed was still at our old house and we had to pick it up on our way to the hospital! I had to tell a friend who was watching our kids while I delivered what box to find the baby clothes in and to wash them please. It was crazy!! But all came together. The same will be for you 🙂
