The last day of September
I can’t believe September is over.. Time is flying by so unbelievably quickly. I can’t believe my baby is due this month. I’m so excited for him.
I used the last day of September to get a lot of stuff done. I finally did the last load of baby’s laundry. I also packed our bags for the birth center. Just about everything we’ll need is in there, and I’ll make a list of things for us to grab on the way out the door before we head to the birth center.
I also made little cards with a list of phone numbers to call on the way there, the address of the birth center, and the police phone numbers for the 3 counties we will be passing through incase we decide we need an escort or there’s an emergency. I put the cards in both bags, my wallet, his wallet, on the fridge and in the car. I don’t want us to be running around looking for any of this info before we leave.
I put a big waterproof pad under the sheets on my side of the bed. I’m hoping it will protect the mattress incase my water breaks while I’m sleeping. We have a tempurpedic and apparently it can’t get wet. There are also towels in the car to protect the leather seats on the way there.
Pretty much all we have to do now is get the car seat installed. We’re planning on doing that tomorrow. I also need to print my birth plan. I have a birth center version and a much more detailed hospital version incase I have to be transferred for whatever reason.
Besides that, there’s nothing to do besides wait for our little boy to decide he’s ready for his debut. I’m 37 weeks, so it could really be any time in the next few weeks. I’m still contracting pretty regularly though so I honestly don’t think it will take 3 more weeks. Regardless, I just want him to stay put until he’s completely ready.
