Well, my bedrest restrictions are not very strict now and I have been taking full advantage. My house has been cleaned from top to bottom - I even managed to wash the walls and baseboards I am 100% ready for Christmas with the exception of just a handful of gifts left to wrap. Jax's room is pretty much ready and so is all his stuff. I still need to wash the cover in the cosleeper and swings but other than that I'm ready - I even have his hospital bag packed (still need to pack mine) I've just been doing things as I can tolerate them...it took 2 weeks to get the house clean like I wanted it so it wasn't an overnight cleaning frenzy that did it. Maintaining it has been a bit of a struggle because after I proved I could indeed get up and do stuff no one has wanted to lift a finger around here - grrrrrr!!!
Anyway, that's where I am with things. How's everyone else?

well I have everything imaginable for this baby, her nursery has been done for like ages now I have not had to be in the hospital on mag for quite a while I have 2 more p17 shots o go and bed rest is history I see the dr weekly I just saw him this morning to tell him I was pretty sure my Depression was creeping back into my life so I am back on My Anti_D/ANxiety med I was hoping to not have to but I know I need it befor eit gets really bad and out of control. I weighed 143.2 not muh of a gain I have been lingering around this weiht for three weeks he still thinks I will go on my own at 36 or 37 weeks I don't think so but I guess we will find out pretty soon and bed rest sucks (I have been doing this for a long time since month3)
We are totally ready for baby! The nursery is like 95% done with the exception of hanging his name letters and attaching the door to his changing table. The manufacturer sent a wrong hinge so I had to call and have them ship us a new hinge Being done with that feels SOOOO good after procrastinating so long! As for Xmas, we are just about ready. I still have gifts to get for both of my SIL's which will probably be gift cards and I have to wrap some other stuff once it's delivered. All I need to really do at this point before Major gets here is clean the floors and bathrooms. Can you tell I am doing well with bed rest? haha. I am just so excited to meet our son! I will schedule my induction at my appt on Monday
Not really ready for the baby, but I have diapers and the co-sleeper and 3 or 4 outfits, so I should be OK for a while. There will be time to get things ready once the baby comes, and I plan on the baby sleeping in our room for the first 4 or 5 months anyway.
Christmas will be very low-key this year for us. DH does not have the time to do much to get ready between his job and all the extra work my being on bedrest has caused. We have the tree up, and a few presents I got before I got put on bedrest. Family and friends will make sure the kids have plenty of presents without us having to do a whole lot.
The house is not very clean, but it is not a complete disaster either.
