Today is December 13th, which means that we’re a month away from Baby’s due date. I need to check with my practice tomorrow to find out how long they let you go past your due date if Baby doesn’t come on their own. If they let me go up to two weeks past, that means we’re at most 45 days away from having a baby as of today. Holy crap!
Surprisingly, I’m not feeling too crazed about baby preparations. There are still things to buy and things to do, but I’m sure whatever needs to get done will get done, and anything else will come in time. It’s kind of nice to have Christmas fall right in the middle of this 9th month. It gives me something else to focus on and prepare for and I think that’s what’s helping me not get too torqued up over Baby prep. We’ve had the house decorated for a good two weeks already and our Christmas cards are already in the mail (which has to be a record for me). Shopping is about 75% complete at this point and there are some sewing projects still to be done, but they should all come together quickly. I’m actually hoping to get the bulk of my sewing done tomorrow after work and to finalize my shopping on Saturday.
It’s a good thing that I’m not feeling compelled to do any major shopping or projects right now because I’m so tired at night that I pass out not long after dinner and really don’t have time to get anything done in the evening before I’m asleep for the night! Like, right now it’s only 8:30 and I’m really struggling to stay awake. People tell me to enjoy the sleep while I can get it now, but I’d also like to be able to enjoy doing whatever I want right now before I’ll have a little needy baby to attend to! I also feel bad that all of my quality time with Alex is spent with me snoring next to him on the couch. He doesn’t seem to mind, though – he’s getting a lot of video game time in lol!
