The 21 Day Countdown

3 weeks... 21 days... 504 hours...30,240 minutes... Until we are no longer a family of four, but a family of five... and the children sleeping through the night ceases to happen in our house.

I have a laundry list of things that still need to get done before Little Miss A joins our family, and thinking about it now... I want to do a tailspin of panic.

On a positive note this week, I got the full results of the amnio finally, it seems like I have been waiting forever for the results to come in, and the genetics are 100% normal, there is no infection, and they are thinking that she just may be a little girl. I mean, lets face it... it is not like the boys are giants.

What do we still need to do?

  • Install the car seat
  • Finish the nursery
  • Get the co-sleeper out of the attic and wash the bedding
  • Build the swing
  • Build the bouncer
  • Build the cubical storage unit for her bedroom
  • Buy more newborn diapers (because I will not be washing diapers while recovering from a c-section... I cant handle the added laundry and the stairs)
  • Finish my bedroom nesting/cleaning project
  • Find a maid for one day a week
  • Pack my bags
  • Pack the boys bags
Um... Yeah... Panic now!

Try Merry Maids. They can send someone weekly, they have a good reputation and good references.

Good luck with everything.

It's getting so close! You need to brake that list down into days and start getting it done (you will feel so much better)!
