Is it Time Yet?

So I’m on the home stretch. Sort of. I mean I realize next month will be the ACTUAL actual home stretch, but I think with 2 months to go I can claim this as the home stretch too, right?

Anyways, I have a list of things I want to do or to have done and I’m not sure what is too soon to do since while I feel like HOME STRETCH there are actually TWO whole months left. Mostly I’m afraid if I do these things now then I’ll run out of things to do in the last month and I’m thinking if my nesting instincts are so strong right now, what will they be doing in a month?

So far my list consists of:

  • Sterilizing bottles/nipples/pacifiers/breast pump stuff
  • Washing baby clothes (which I want desperately to do because THEY’RE SO CUTE but as Jack is still living in the nursery I kind of have no place to put them).
  • Get out bassinet/boppy/carseat/anything else tiny person related.
  • BUY MORE STUFF (I’m not entirely sure what stuff yet, but I know that I would definitely like to buy it).
  • Pack hospital bag.
  • Umm…

You know, this list really seemed longer in my head. So I don’t really remember last time when we started really doing all that stuff, but I feel like it may still be a tad early.

Oh well, if there was more I’m sure I’ll think of it later. Like later tonight while I’m in bed staring at the ceiling unable to sleep due to crazy hormone induced insomnia and sore hips and attempting to sleep propped up to avoid said sore hips. All of this leading up to me being SO GLAD to start only getting 2 hours of sleep at a time because AT LEAST IT WILL BE SLEEP and not just me laying in bed wishing it was sleep, and also all of this pregnancy fun stuff with be a fond memory of “oh it wasn’t so bad” because it’s easy to say that when it’s over.
