The Final Countdown

by verdemama on April 27, 2011

What have I been doing to prepare for Baby J’s impending birth? Not much, really. I’m stocking up on cloth diapers, a few pieces of new clothing, and rearranging Orion’s room to eventually fit two little ones. I got a new rug for their room (above) and I’m adding a few other finishing touches. (Pics to follow soon, I promise.) We re-borrowed a co-sleeper from friends that she’ll sleep in for the first few months; it’s the same one Orion snoozed in the first four months of his life. Eventually she’ll move into Orion’s former crib, while he sleeps in his Craigslisted toddler bed.

I’m planning to once again opt for a med-free hospital birth — kind of the best of both worlds, as far as I’m concerned. I get to labor and deliver naturally but with the comfort of medical doctors close at hand in case something goes awry. I’ve been procrastinating in studying my Hypnobabies CDs and workbook I used for Orion’s birth, but considering I’m 35.5 weeks along now, I guess I best be breaking out those bad boys, pronto, before I run out of time.

Other than that, it’s pretty much business as usual. Everything is so different this time around — I’ve hardly had any time to really marinate in the idea that I will soon have a second little person to devote my everything to. Fortunately I know from experience I don’t really need much material stuff to care for a newborn, because all she needs is a place to sleep, warm clothes, unfettered boob access and loving arms to cradle her.

I’m not exactly winging it this time around, but I’m not trying to plan and control every last detail, either. And I’m cool with that.
