Pre-Birth Energy Boost

30 Jan

I remember them telling us at the prenatal classes that just before going in labour (like over the last week), you not only nest like crazy – you get an energy boost. Hmmm, I am guessing I’m there.

Today, I unpacked one of the bookcases that we had bought at Ikea yesterday. I brought it upstairs, 2 items at a time (the whole box was way too heavy). I found the necessary tools, assembled, and installed it in a closet in the nursery and re-arranged all the stuff in the closet. Now I have normal storage – there was so much space wasted!

I moved the crib and glider to allow more space for 2 more cabinets/wardrobes (they have doors, drawers, open shelves… for toys, clothes, books, stuff).

I am currently doing one final laundry load of baby stuff (I got some more after my big laundry day a month ago).

I assembled the bouncer.

I hung the paintings that I painted last week.

I added a few final items to my L&D bag (liquid snacks… jello and such).

Next I will do a laundry load and set the bed for myself in the nursery – and for the baby (well, for him its only a matter of stretching the bedsheet over the mattress ;))

I am sure my hubby will be horrified that I engaged in all this manual labour, but I was super-careful to not lift or push anything too heavy. And I feel so accomplished.

I can put my feet up and watch a movie now. Or maybe I should watch it while bouncing on a yoga ball…

    So soon!!!!!

    The day my water broke with J, I had gone grocery shopping and purchased TONS of food. I then proceeded to carry load after load up to our apartment – 3 stories up! Needless to say, I think this put me into labor @ 39 weeks 5 days.

    Perhaps you’ll jump start labor this way…???

      we have a 3-story townhouse (no basement), so I was also running up and down the stairs, bringing one part at a time 😉 But so far – the baby stays put. Today – spicy thai food! Meeting a friend for lunch 😉

    Oooh! This sounds like an exciting time for you. I definitely vote for bouncing while watching the movie.
