Nesting for 8.
Everything has been handled. I have nested like a champ. Mostly because I have this friend who always asks me, nearly every other day, “So what let’s see what you got ready for the baby.” Or she asks me things like if I have an outfit for after the baby is born…what about this or that. She is like a birth concierge which is super handy for me. Like I have said before.. I am little removed from the concept that an actual baby will be here. I am very well aware of the reality of labor, birth and the recuperation afterward… but that an actual family member will arrive blows my mind.
With my last pregnancy I couldn’t wrap my head around it till , at one point deep in labor, my midwife said very sheepishly, “Where are your baby hats?” I remember having just finished a contraction and furrowing my brow thinking, “why the hell do we need those….Oh! Wait!…we need baby hats for a baby!” Hey, better late than never. So I have a stack of baby hats… they are ready and waiting… but don’t ask me for what.
But they say that “the what” can happen any day…
