Well, its a waiting game at this point. We are as prepared as we can get for this little guy.
1. The nursery is ready- diapers, vaseline, wipes, all lines washed and folded
2. My bag is packed.
3. C-section scheduled, pretesting scheduled, complete with requested anesthesiologist available.
4. Small gifts bought for Jacob and Clara, complete with new big bro/sis t-shirts.
5. Various baby-sitters to occupy Jacob and Clara, entertain them and to help them feel they are still special.
6. FMLA set up, daycare set up, several meals frozen for reheating.
7. I even have all the Christmas presents for the kids wrapped and hidden.
I wish I could say my house is clean from top to bottom, but I didn't want to get too carried away. All we need now is the 20th, or for labor to commence on it's own, which I would be just fine with at this point.
Last night we had our night shift Christmas party. It's always good to hang out with people outside the hospital. We always end up having a lot of fun. People who have gone to other departments, have retired or quit usually come back for the party and it's nice to see old faces and catch up. The girl who hosted the party has this game called Dance, Dance Revolution (I think that's the name). It's a video game where you follow dance moves on the screen and move your feet on a mat in sync. I did not partake, but it was funny to watch grown women gettin' down!
