All I really have left to do is pack our bags for the hospital and get all of the baby gear out of storage, like carseat and swing and such.

I have so much to do as far as setting the baby's room up still, but I can't really do it until I have me baby shower. The shower is not until the 20th, so once that happens I can get everything done

Just packed the bags today. (mostly)
Already bought pretty much everything I need.. except baby bath tub.
Haven't installed car seat yet.
I still need to do some organizing for baby's room...
I am trying at this point to keep up with the deep cleaning/cleaning so whenever he decides to come, my house isn't trashed!
I would like to freeze some meals and buy some paper plates/cups/utensils still to help with less dishes (therefore less work) while baby is a NB.
Other than that I am set.

I'm so jealous. I think that's what makes me the most depressed about being on bedrest. My photo session was supposed to be on a day I was in the hospital so we postponed them and now I can't do them at all and they don't give refunds. The guy did say I could transfer it to a different type of session though, so I might just wait a month or so after birth and do some family photos with it. I would use it for newborn photos but I think DH really wants to do those.

- Finish my crazy nesting cleaning so the house is ready for him
- write about a million thank you notes
- have baby

That's pretty much it. I finished most of the things for him last week and after Melissa had Grady my husband made me pack our bags , just in case
I am feeling completely ready and completely unprepared all at once!

Got nursing bras today! Woohoo!
Got some more baby clothes today, too, thanks to my mom.
So I need to:

Wash my new stuff and baby's stuff so it's ready to use.
Wash and sterilize my breast pump and baby bottles.
Iron my K'Tan baby carrier, if I get around to it.
I'd like to organize our bedroom better, if I get around to that.
Re-check my hospital bag and Ethan's overnight bag and pack a few more things/rearrange.

I need to:

-schedule and get maternity pics done
-install car seat base (if I get around to it)
-register with the hospital
-pack my bags/make a list of what to throw in at last minute
-print off a copy of my basic birth plan and my placent release form
-get out/set up equipment from the attic (swing, bouncer, pack-n-play)

But a lot is not totally essential. I could do it in labor or when we got home.
