99 Days...

I'm due in 99 days! I'm down to double digits! I'm getting a bit excited now!

I was thinking there was nothing to organise really, but there are a number of things to, I just haven't sat down and organised it in my head...

In no particular order...

  • Pay the midwife up to 36 weeks
  • Have a look at nappy stash (both cloth and paper) and determine what is needed, get bamboo prefolds from Jen (thanks Jen)
  • Looking at clothing, wraps, blankets and make sure I've got enough of everything
  • Get bassinet (thanks Pam) and highchair (thanks Mel) into the house
  • Sort out the change table (it needs a thorough scrub down too, it tends to collect dust in tight little corners)
  • Sort out the birthpool and hose and fittings (or decide if I'm just going to use the bath)
  • Contact the water people about getting hot water put on peak all day and night
  • Visit parents in Adelaide for a relaxing weekend sans kids (sorry kids, just need some time with no one asking anything of me)
  • Make sure the house is organised enough that I won't feel like its coming down around my ears in the weeks following bub's birth
  • Order nappy bag
  • Get Mei Tai (thanks Rach)

Well, that's all I can think of for now... None of it is a major undertaking so 99 days should be plenty of time to arrange all of this...

I reckon 99 days sounds long enough for all that LOL! Just remember, my bamboos are *flats* not *prefolds*. Let me know if you don't want them anymore, cause I will make them into boosters for Archie.

Wow! 99 days left-ish! Will not forget Mei Tai :) btw, re: hot water, you need to contact your electricity company about this I am pretty sure?? Trying to dig back into the hidden recesses of my brain from when I worked for them, we had people calling all the time that had switched their hot water onto peak for fulltime use and would ring up cranky at their bills LOL I am pretty sure electricity company or a plumber would be the go. Make sure you get them to show you/tell you how to switch is back to off peak for afterward! :)

Cool, thanks for that Rach, I'll have to give both a call and make sure I have all the bases covered. I was told I had to make sure this was all set in motion at least a month before bubs was due to give them time as well...

Let me know if you need any help with figuring out the water sitch..since I'll be there perhaps I can help out with that. Also anything else I can do besides photography, child minding, and general support :) I say DEF go the birth pool, not just a bath :)

Oooh how exciting! Getting closer :)
