Emily is now 39 weeks pregnant and is officially on maternity leave, which means the baby could arrive any day, although I’m guessing we’ve got another week or two to wait. Just in case, we’re making sure we’re ready to go now.
We’ve started filling our freezer with leftovers and easy to heat up meals. Our friends from our prenatal class keep running into each other in the Wendy’s drive-thru, and we don’t want to fall into that trap (although I hear they have a good baked potato).
The baby room is all set up with a crib, bassinet, and changing table. We have a stack of cloth diapers provided by Saucy Bottoms (we’re going with a service because we don’t have in-suite laundry), plus a dresser full of hand-me down clothes.
We’ve added a few shelves to the baby room to hold all the books Emily got from her baby shower.
Now, we we’re ready to grab our hospital bags and head out the door when the time comes. (Hopefully it doesn’t look like this.)
We still haven’t figured out transportation. Depending on when labour starts, it will either be a car sharing vehicle from Evo or Modo, or a taxi. Emily has vetoed riding to the hospital in a bike trailer.
Won’t be long now. Emily looks great. Maybe just in time for Father’s Day. Wouldn’t that be the perfect gift for you!
I’m hoping for a baby this weekend. That would be a perfect Father’s Day gift. But I’ll be happy whenever she arrives.
Emily, you really do look great. Happy Labour Day 🙂
Yes she is looking great. I’ve been really impressed with how well she’s handled the pregnancy. Part luck I’m sure and part good habits on her part. Emily was walking to work and biking until she went of maternity leave last week, and she’s been doing yoga regularly.
What, doesn’t want to be towed to hospital on a bike trailer, while in labour? Women, eh!
Seriously, all the very best to you two (soon to be three); I wish you great joy with your baby.
