Due In 15 Days

( Warning: Lots of words in this post)
Little Hannah is on her way!  I am 38 weeks tomorrow and could not be more ready for her to come, ok maybe I could.  It is December 1st and I am sitting in the laundry strewed living room of our new rental.  The hospital bag is almost packed, its just missing a few things like my yoga pants (can't find them) and the toiletries.  Hannah's bag however is ready to go!  Isn't it cute?

I went with a simple grey pleather (wipe able) bag. We have done this twice before with Mia & Jude and I am completely worried confident of my bag packing skills. But here is what I did pack and remember using with my other two.

Easy wipe able diaper bag
Lip balm
My favorite diaper cream
Two pacifiers ( although I will not be using them)
A few new born diapers ( just in case, but the hospital usually provides and sends you home with some)
Warm blanket
3-4 outfits ( 3 simple sleepers, and one going home)
Breast feeding pads
Nursing cover
swaddling blankets
preferred wipes
feeding ointment (lasinoh)
Boppy pillow

Next up is our Super Awesome Find!  The playpen.  
I was really particular about finding something that "did it all" because we are living in a small space. 
I haven't put the changing table, or the napper on since I was still organizing all her things.  This is my favorite buy cause its not huge! 

Its just what we need and it rolls easily from room to room. We got it for a steel off for only $85.00.  Sweet savings. 

Hopefully our next post will be showing a lot of the "two feet" our family will be growing.

Pregnancy update:
How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain: up 2 lbs. (lost weight at the beginning of the pregnancy and have gained all + 2lbs)
Maternity clothes? Yep
Stretch marks? Two small new ones

Sleep: Terrible.  I am sore, and I am posetive its cause she is at a -1 this week.
Best moment this week:
Kid2Kids "Fill A Bag" event...yes im not kidding. Fill a bag to the top for $10.00.  LOVED IT!
Miss Anything?  Walking straight.  I feel like a duck (waddle waddle).  Playing and singing piano.  Its been too hard to sit on my bench. 
Movement: oh yes she is a crazy mover!

Food cravings: Sweets! I know dangerous, but I do I want carrot cake and spiced cupcakes sound so good! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing right now.

Labor Signs:
Yes! I am so excited.  We are at -1, 3cm, 70%.  Also last night I had some contractions I actually had to concentrate breathing threw!
Symptoms: Some contractions, and lots of pain in my hips the last little while.
Belly Button in or out? Flat!
Wedding rings on or off? on.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy & a little moody!

Looking forward to:  D-DAY!  Oh I wish I knew so I could plan around it!
