100 Days


Well, well, well I have a mere 100 days until my due date. Tomorrow I head down into the double digits. I can't believe how quickly this is happening and how loong it seems to take all at the same time. I have so much to do before she gets here, but I also feel so ready to meet her. So far here is what I know of motherhood and pregnancy:
  • I have had it easy. I thought pregnancy would be really hard on me, but it's been easy. I feel bad for my pregnant friends who have been put through it all.
  • Sometimes I love to just sit and watch my belly move as she kicks around. It is really kind of freakish, but it's so comforting as well.
  • It's getting ridiculous to get up from the floor, lots of awkward rolling and rocking before I can heave myself up. The first time this happened I was sitting on the floor when the phone rang. I tried to hop up and go to the phone, but end up rolling and flopping about, making myself laugh hysterically. My stomach muscles seem to have abandoned me for the rest of the pregnancy.
  • I have no idea what baby things I actually need.
  • I love this little girl so much.

Who is throwing u a shower? I am sure they will cover the essentials..Since u are having a girl I can imagine all the cute things u will buy/get... I do know what saved me was my baby sling... Its literally a sling and it enabled me to do housework and took a load off of my back.. I still have it as a memento...

Lots of ONESIES! I can't tell you how many of those I would go through in a day when I was taking care of my niece.

Here is the checklist I used as a guide when getting ready for Grace:

http://www.todaysparent.com/pregnancybirth/youandnewborn/article.jsp?content=20030605_132958_3736&page=1

An item that would be great to borrow until you know if your baby will like it is a swing. Some babies do, some don't.

Things I would not get is a baby wipe warmer. Grace only knew cold wipes and has never had an issue. What else? Those fancy diaper genies, a garbage can with a closeable lid is just as good.

Hope that gets you started ;) Congrats on 100 days! She'll be here before you know it :)

wow your pregnancy really has gone quick, 100 days is nothing!! i love the mystery of pregnancy, there is still so much that is unknown, what will she look like, what will her birthday actually be, who will she take after - it's all so exciting.

what you need . . .

yes, lots of onsies and little sleepers or gowns. and lots of little receiving blankets. (if your baby is small - in the 7 lb range or smaller, she will soak through all of it often because the newborn diapers will be too big . . . her little legs won't fill out the leg openings and you'll have leaks . . . yes, i know this from experience . . . )

tiny, tiny, itty bitty socks. (these work as mittens, too!)

a nursing pillow - even if you bottle feed - it puts that little person in a much more comfortable position for you to hold. even though she'll be tiny, she'll still get heavy after a while . . .

and lots of love - which you already have. :) babies just need lots of holdin' and lovin' . . .

i'm really happy for you, that you've had an easy pregnancy! i hope it continues to go well for you!

You probably need so much less than you think. Unless you're planning on having lots more, then it's good to have some extras because some things do get stained.
Are you doing cloth diapers or disposables? I would suggest getting more cloth diapers than you think you need, I don't remember how many we started with, but I remember ordering more than the suggested amount, and I was glad I did!

What a sweet photo and list about your pregnancy!

Every pregnancy I needed different things...
the first: a crib, rocking chair, car seat
the second: the double stroller and boy clothes were great
the third: I loved the sling I made, because both my hands were already full :)
Here is the free pattern I used:

Enjoy all your preparations!
