Guess Who This Is

I will give you one guess (because I know who you'll pick)


If any of you guessed Gisele Bundchen, you are...

Wrong.

It's me, but I know it kinda looks like her pregnant body so I don't blame you for guessing her. I seriously get it all the time.

38 weeks and counting...

We have purchased our car seat, snap and go, pack n play (which we are using for the bassinet and changing table to save on space), and we are waiting on a bid for my double electric breast pump. Fun!! I can't wait to hook that thing up :) I need to find a diaper bag. We've got diapers, wipes and tons of cute clothes and great stuff (thanks to my wonderful friends and family that attended my baby showers and sent gifts... Thanks so much!!!)and yet there is still so much to get it seems like! And then there's the question, what to pack in the hospital bag? So far we've got snacks, camera, socks, grant comfy outfits, outfit to bring home baby, a couple receiving blankets, laptop, makeup, shampoo and conditioner, change for the vending machine, uh... am I forgetting anything?!

Probably.

Love the picture! You might want to take your own Tylenol for you and Grant so you're not charged $8 a pill. That was advice I got... And don't forget to make sure the car seat is fully installed before you leave for the hospital. Those things can be frustrating and you don't want to be dealing with that in the hospital parking lot. You might find you even need one of those foam thigns to help it sit horizontal. I know we did with our Accord because of the seat design. And you might want to take a nightgown or robe that you are comfortable in, Calli. One that you're okay with getting messy, but so that you don't have to wear hospital garb, especially after the birth during your recovery stay. And slippers are nice, too. Take some nice smelling body soap, too. It's a nice pick me up for your first shower after the birth. I'm sure I'll think of something else later... Tell Grant to pack a book he can pick up and put down easily. (Men get bored, they can't help it, but you want his attention at a moment's notice).

I am so excited for you! Hopefully you don't have to go past your due date! :) I must say I am so grateful to be done and not still pregnant for another week. I was about to burst! Literally. He was no small child. I can't wait to see your little man. I know he will be adorable. Good luck with everything and just know...when the pain gets to be too much...there is a reward at the end of the tunnel! At least thats what I had to tell myself.

make sure to bring the camera cord that attaches to the laptop so you can empty your memory card onto your laptop and re-fill with more pics!

i would bring a nursing bra too, but that's just me. i wish i would have, instead i walked around braless to and from the NICU. scary!!

i can't believe he's almost here!!!!! you look like a HOT MAMA in that belly shot.
