8 weeks and 5 days until #2 arrives. Well, at least according to my What To Expect When Expecting app (yes, there's an app for that). We all know how babies always come on time so I am not holding onto much hope that Baby will show up on that specific day. But regardless, #2 is coming and time is flying by.
When I was pregnant with Grace, the nursery was done by this time. I had all my major gear items. And her closet was full of outfits to be worn.
Right now -- the crib is still in pieces leaning up against the wall in the nursery. There is a pile of miscellaenous boxes that need to be put in storage but right now, the middle of the nursery floor seems to be a good place for them. And the gear we do have is limited to a new car seat and a new pack n play -- both in their boxes and in the garage.
Everyone told me that being pregnant again would be different. And they were so right. I dont find myself panicing over pregnancy symptoms that forced doctor calls last time around. And I generally know what to expect next. I can more realistically plan for the hospital and what I will want with me there. Most helpful has been knowing what gear and brands I liked and didnt like last time - I feel much more in control of the baby shopping list this time around.
Last week's events have got me thinking though -- what if this baby decides to come early? I am so not ready! There isnt a bottle in my house. Or a diaper either. Wipes -- 1 pack that I found in the back of Grace's closet. Guess its time to start stocking up!!!
