Good morning and TGIF!!! It's been a really great week in the baby baking department. I feel really great overall and continue to truck along. Our nursery is nearing completion and I am SO so excited to share the finished product. Nick has a few little projects he is working on and then everything will be complete. (Decorative stuff).
It looks like we will be ready for baby Noel to arrive any day in March, should he come early. However, I know that the first baby is notoriously late, so I fully expect to still be pregnant come April 10th cause that's how life works.
Anywho, now that we are prepared for baby boy Noel to join us, I'm starting to get myself ready, or as ready as humanly possible, for birth and post partum care.
I realize I haven't talked much about birth since I began documenting my pregnancy. Honestly, it's because I don't really have that many concerns about birth. I know, I'm crazy. I don't have any anxiety or stress about giving birth, the process of giving birth, or anything involved with the medical procedures. I trust my doctor, I have confidence in myself, and I know we will be at the very best hospital in our area should something go wrong. Naturally, I have some preferences in mind, but overall I just want him to arrive safely. That is my singular goal. For my baby to have a safe and healthy delivery. Lawd day I can't wait to see this little boy's face. As long as that happens, I will be one very happy Momma bear.
I am quite aware that this will not be the most glamorous time in my life, and I just want to feel prepared. Here is my question for you experienced Moms, what's on the must have post partum care list?
So far I have the following:
1. Always Infinity Extra Heavy Overnight Pads
2. Tucks med Pads
4. Nursing pads
5. Belly Bandit
6. Depends Underwear
7. Brondell Travel Bidet
8. Nursing Bras
9. Nursing Camis
What am I missing? What's an item you couldn't get by without?
