Nesting for 8.

June 13, 2013



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…

    Oh I love the little hats and booties and the nesting part. I’m glad you have someone to help you remember all the details. Some of us are better at the nesting than the actual delivery. That is why we only have 3 bio children. I am happy for you. Counting the days.
