Just a little list.

I attempted to nap with Joaquin today and ended up laying there going over thing after thing that I need to get done, but have no energy to actually do. I asked myself, "if I got up right now, what would I actually do?" My answer to myself was, "all I want to do is sleep". But obviously that was not happening.

I think I'm officially hitting **freak out mode**. I'll be 35 weeks tomorrow. That means full term in 2 weeks and the official due date in 5. This baby can be here very very soon and I have diddly squat ready for her. It just all feels so overwhelming, I don't even know where to start!

My plan is to make a list, I need a list to figure out what needs to be done and hopefully from there I can start taking care of things. I know this is not the most exciting post in the world...but please, this is the only way this baby will get a diaper on her bum!

THE List.
* pull out all newborn diapers
* wash & dry them
* pull out & divide all hand-me-downs
* wash them
* soak all stained stuff
* wash all new stuff
* clean out the kid's room
* get rid of old toys
* pull out baby toys
* organize diaper/dresser area
* put away all of the clothes and diapers
* pull out the swing
* clean it
* pull out changing pad & cover
* find the brest friend & clean it
* listen to hypnobabies every night
* start packing hospital bag
* find a "going home" outfit
* get car super duper deep cleaned
* clean carseat
* install carseat
* find hospital night gown/robe/clothes
* get "recovery" supplies
* get a "gift from baby" for Joaquin
* name the baby

OK, there is so much more, but I'm kind of freaking myself out by this list and am getting contractions. I think I need to go lay down again. Holy crap.

I feel what you are talking about! I will be full term next week and I am FREAKING out! I thought I had everything ready but then I remember something we still need to do and the list gets bigger! Still no name for baby girl? What about Esmeralda or Camila? Sorry I know it's not my buisness just suggestions cuz I love those names but my DH wouldn't go for them if we had a girl.

I'm curious about these "recovery supplies". What are you getting? I would love your advice :)

All you need is a warm pair of arms, a couple of boobs, and a few dipes. You are going to get everything done that needs to be done. If you think about it enough your list could be never ending.
Once you see her you'll know her name, and if not just take your time and get to know her a bit. hugs.

Reading your list brings back all of the memories. How lucky you will be in a few weeks to kiss your new little girl :)
