I'll start RRLT after 30 weeks and EPO around 37 weeks. I use the EPO vaginally, at night, start off with 500mg and work my way up to 2000mg if I remember correctly.I'm going part time in about a month or so (THANK GOD!) so I can focus on relaxing before baby comes and making sure the house is in order with nesting and what not because hubby drives me nuts with his (LACK OF) organizational skills.
I'm not sure if I'll use RRLT or EPO yet. Someone will have to bring it back up when the time comes closer.
I'm working on the getting the older children to stop destroying the house! One day we'll get a house without a pedestal sink. The kids end up leaning on it, even with a stool to stand on, and pull the sink away from the wall. We'll have to see if DH can fix it.
DH got out the box springs and frame from the twin beds out of the house. The twins got bunk beds. Tomorrow he and his brothers are picking up bedroom furniture (for us) from his dad. Once we get that set up I'll sand and paint the dumpy dresser we've been using and give it to baby.
The dresser with mirror I used as a child - adulthood is still at my mom's house. It's large, wouldn't fit in our other house so we never moved it. It's also a little complicated to get off the mirror to transport it. But, at some point DH will get it and then the twins will have a dresser.
Last weekend DH brought over the piano!!! The baby doesn't need that but it was important to me (and DH). It makes the house feel more like home.

we're moving to a house. Our apartment is just too small. That's the job for April. Along with figuring out our wills and stuff.Next month will be starting Hypnobabies course. Buying some initial baby stuff in case I go into labor early and packing hospital bags June.... I don't know. lol That's too far ahead.
after the deep cleaning/decluttering this week I feel better/more ready for baby. I want to shampoo the kids carpets (maybe tomorrow) and have to finish the baby's bedding and crib skirt, paint my living room wall red and paint my son's room. Those are the things I absolutely have to get done, there are a ton of little things in my "it would be nice to do list" but I'm not going to panic if they don't get done.

DH has to get the basement finished so I have somewhere to put the junk that's in the nursery. Then we still have to paint the nursery, and put all the baby stuff (currently in the guest room) in there. There's no way we have enough time. Sigh.

I did a ton of stuff last month which I am now thankful that I did since the surgery wouldn't have allowed me to get it done for at least another month. I moved around dd's room, set up her new bed, set up the baby's side with his crib, dresser, etc. I also found homes for most things out of the way (everything was in our bedroom making me crazy). This next month I can't even vacuum (it's making me certifiably crazy by the way) so I have to lay low and not do much for prepping. I'm considering just using the time to continue working on his blanket I am crocheting. In May I am having a Sprinkle and then I'll have more organizing to do afterwords. In June I will be washing everything since I haven't done any of that. Early July I will pack my hospital bag!
