Full term! I’m 37 weeks along now and mm is expected to come anytime from now. 😀
The past few weeks since I stopped working have been busy, packed yet blissful. I have managed to get lots of things done and am pleased to share that a majority of the KPIs (key performance indicators) set to be completed before mm comes have been settled!
[√] Declutter E’s toys
[√] Spring clean and give away old clothes – we gave ours away to Eletrolux Washington charity project
[√] Spring clean and sell off / give away books, toys, baby stuff and whatever stuff not needed anymore – glad to say that all our giveaways have gone to good homes
[√] Wash mm’s clothes and napkins – the lazy me sent all to the laundry shop 🙂
[√] Go through baby checklist and prepare whatever that is required – mm is inheriting pretty much everything from E, so all we had to buy were some milk bottles, carseat, newborn rompers and some nice-to-haves. I managed to buy some great stuff at discounted prices at the Mothercare sale going on now.
[√] Pack hospital bag – Having had an experience before, my hospital bag is a LOT lighter and simpler this time around.
[√] Catch up with friends – Met up with so many friends over the past few weeks. In fact, I think I’m busier compared to when I was working 🙂
[√] Work on Photobook for 2012 happenings and get it printed – Got it done within three late nights. Waiting patiently for my Photobook to arrive now.
[ ] Return my friend’s prenatal yoga DVD – arranged
[ ] Attend a close friend’s wedding dinner
[ ] Collect my breastpump and confinement food ingredients
[ ] Buy my parents a nice lunch
The last three tasks require me to travel back to my hometown, and I’m a tad worried about popping there. I have been having rather frequent Braxton Hicks lately followed by occasional period-like cramps. The old wives’ tales believe that swollen feet are a good indicator that baby is coming soon but so far, mine have yet to swell. I have also been telling mm to hang in there for a while more and come anytime after this week ends.
What do you think…should I or should I not go back to hometown for a couple of days?
