Oh man, not working is throwing off my planning! It took me til noon to realize it was Monday! That doesn't make for effective planning, or a good dinner on Monday night!
So, I've finally hit that point in my pregnancy (38 1/2 Weeks) where I am ready to not be pregnant anymore. I am so ready for this little guy to make an appearance, and I don't want to be sore, achy and a pee-machine anymore!
We had my parents over for dinner last night, and my mom kept telling me that I should get a video of me walking right now. It must be pretty entertaining to watch me maneuver around the house with sore hips and a huge belly.
It also helps me feel ready for Baby Boy to arrive since I finished the cooking that I wanted to do. I wanted to be sure to freeze some meals for the Hubby and I for after the arrival. I also hit up Costco and M&M Meatshops, so our freezer is full!
Well, here is our menu this week:
Monday: Kraft Dinner (thats what late menu planning got me)
Tuesday: Teriyaki Beef Stirfry
Wednesday: Spaghetti Bolognese (going to make a double batch of the sauce and freeze the rest)
Thursday: BBQ'd Hot Dogs (because thats what this momma wants!)
As always, I'll be linking up with OrgJunkie (albeit a wee bit late!)
I've hit the 37 Week mark! Ack! The end is near! I'm getting super excited. Sooner than later, I will get to meet my son. Insanity. I almost can't even wrap my mind around it.
What I was able to wrap my mind around this week (now that I'm done working!!!) was packing my hospital bag.
I perused the internets incessantly over the last few months at a ton of hospital bag checklists. Some of them were insanely comprehensive and included the kitchen sink. That was a little intense for me, so I took all the things that I thought I would need and compiled my own list.
Here is what went in my bag:
Top Left going clockwise: Going home outfit for mom, hairbrush & elastic band, toiletry bag, toothbrush for dad, toothbrush for mom, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant, toothbrush, chap stick, headband, bobby pins, gum, earphones, video camera & charger, flip flops, makeup bag.
Top left going clockwise: babies going home outfit, receiving blanket, baby hat, two sleepers for baby, nightgown for mom (so I don't have to wear the hospital gowns), nursing bra, sports bra, underwear, iPhone, camera & charger, iPhone charger, iPad, socks.
Items not pictured: spare t-shirt for dad, swim trunks for dad.
Not all things pictured can stay waiting in the bag for labour to arrive, so... I made a list of 'Last Minute Items For Hospital Bag':
I stuck one of the lists to the fridge:
And one to the hospital bag in our closet:
Here are the items in more of a 'Checklist' format:
