Well I suppose so. Someone would have to go on a run to get me some lady products but other than that, we're good.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy

I have my bag half way packed... My older kiddos bags are already at my MIL's and I have a small list of last minute stuff to go with them to her house when it's time. We also need to install the car seat base yet in the truck. So I'm kind of ready.

The house is definitely not as clean as I'd like and we don't have the carseat installed, but otherwise yes!

No way! We would obviously work it out but I'd like a couple more weeks to prepare. I mainly want my bathroom remodel to be done before baby comes home. I have nothing packed at all.

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

No way! I mean, we would make due. But I am not "ready" by any stretch of the imagination. We still need a car seat for one... My baby shower is this Friday. after that I can start finishing things up.

i dont think i'm mental 'ready' but who is for their first let alone their first being twins.

as far as stuff goes, i think we are good. i'm waiting on a nursing bra in the mail but otherwise we are ok. i have the lists and all we need to do is throw last min stuff into my hospital bag like spare charger for phone ect.

i would prefer them to wait though.

The bassinet still has to be set up & moved into my room but none of these things make me nervous because I figure it can be done while I'm in the hospital.
I haven't gone through the 'clothes' and picked out NB sizes yet or coming home outfit.
Mostly I'm worried about 2 big things:
#1) I'm still working full time until next Friday and I haven't packed up any of my things yet.
#2) My daughter is having her big 5th Birthday Party this weekend and I want to be there for her since I'm planning it. I intentionally put it early so I could be there (Im due July 5--her birthday is July 9) but I'll be 38 weeks so anything can happen! LOL

That being said, if baby decided to show tonight--DH and I would make it work. If I was a FTM, I would be more panicked. The baby will be fine. She just needs me (for milk) and some onesies and she'll have all she needs

Lol! I had some people being kind of nasty to me about having whatever I need for Isabelle when I was pregnant with her, and so I rudely responded "well, of course I do! What do you need, really? A working boob, some onesies and maybe a blanket or two. I guess you're right, we're all set, thanks. "
Our little number two, Leonardo, was born July 26, 2013. Welcome baby Leo!

Eh, ready enough. I'd rather have more of the house stuff complete. It would be awkward if the insulation people came tomorrow and I was in labor, ya know? I haven't packed bags, but figured I'd do it while in labor anyway. I just hope it happens at some point when the fridge is stocked and the laundry is pretty well caught up and the bathroom is reasonably clean. I'd hate for my mom to enter a disaster zone to take care of my kid! Tonight would be middle-of-the-road in that respect.

Yes and no. First off I would prefer DH not to be away for work when I go into labor. Trying to get him home mmight not be possible or a big PITA. Most things are ready. We need to install the car seat and I need to pack my bag. I have most stuff gathered, just need to pack actually. I would also love to get some meals in the freezer. Other than that, I'm pretty sure we're good... I think.

Yep we're ready! Everything is set up, washed and the carseat base is installed. My oldest keeps asking when she'll be born so I guess he's ready too!

NOO. I really can't handle going anything before July 8th. My sister, brother in law, nephew (6 months old), and brother will all be coming to visit from July 3-7th. Luckily my mom will be here July 6th and she will clean my house from top to bottom after everyone leaves and before I come home from the hospital. LOL
