For our mamas on bed rest... how are you doing? Is everything squared away for baby? The nursery finished? Are you ready for the holidays? Any 'end in sight?' ... what's new with you girls?

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?

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.
