Nolan Prep

4 Oct

I have been asking Hubby for weeks to please get a dresser out of storage and to rearrange furniture to make a spot for Nolan. Every weekend it was one excuse or another.

Well this morning, after Nolan almost making a grand entrance TWICE in the past few days…Hubby was a nursery prepping maniac. In fact, the whole house seemed to be in nesting mode (my parents started cleaning out closets and Hubby’s parents even stopped by to help him get things out of storage).

I, of course, spent most of the day in a chair with my feet up drinking as much water as humanly possible and trying to keep contractions at bay. Didn’t work. As evening wears on they are back and becoming annoying again – but no where near rhythmic (of course). The L&D paperwork says to come in anytime you have more than 6 per hour for two hours…that is defiantly happening. But we’ve decided not to go in this time until a) they become and stay about 5 min apart, or b) I’m in more pain than I can stand.

So we are going to watch a movie and then try to get some sleep and see what happens this time.

For now, I leave you with Noaln’s pad:

It was particularly cute that Hubby made sure to set up a place for me to pump. =) Notice the chair and nursing cover?

    Good luck! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and am truly amazed at your ability to take these less-than-ideal life situations head on.

    I love the lamp! So cute.

    Is it possible to get the password to read all posts? I’ve asked before, but to no avail.

    I’ve read the past few posts. False labour pains sound as bad as the “real” ones. So, has the wee one made an appearance yet? BTW, Nolan’s spot looks quite tranquil.

    I am reading your tweets on the right column. I wish you patience and good luck with the doctors. Just think positive and just think about Nolan… You will have your sweet son in your arms in couple of weeks.

    Lala! Tell that kid not to tease you like that! I’m glad your husband got his butt in gear – it sounds like Nolan will be there soon! Good luck!
