9 weeks left!

So I had my family shower this past weekend.  So great.  I was a little disappointed because there were so many people invited and only about 18 RSVP'd that they'd be there.  That's how many were there.  I was more disappointed because it would have been nice to see everyone.  I haven't really seen my family since my Dad's funeral, and on Hubby's side there were some I haven't seen in years because we keep missing each other at family events.  But it probably worked out for the better because our car was so loaded down that I couldn't even see out the back window as we were driving home!!!  Not to mention that Puppy only had one seat in the back to sit on.  The rest was chock full! :)  Makes me feel so good to know my LO is loved so much before he even gets here.  And on top of that, we did get a good amount of our bigger items, which I definitely did not expect!  We got our high chair and pack n play.  We actually got two of our high chair and I returned one for store credit.  We're going to use that money to order our crib and mattress.  My brother is so wonderful, when he heard we didn't get our carseat/travel system, he told me he'd buy that as a gift to us.  So that literally just leaves the swing for us to buy.  So amazing.  Aside from the big stuff, we got a good amount of clothes, a lot of bath stuff, and some great little toy items.  I really do feel so grateful that we have such awesome family and friends.  I have a friends shower in a few weeks.

Aside from the shower, I've been feeling pretty good.  The little man is in there kicking and stretching and pushing me around.  I have my appts every 3 weeks right now.  After my next appt in a few weeks I start ever other week.  Then in July it's every week.  Things are getting so close!!  I actually have almost everything I need to pack my diaper bag and my hospital bag.  I only have 4 weeks left until they won't stop my labor if it happens!  It feels so crazy to be this close, and then again I have days where I feel like it's taking forever!  Hubby keeps saying "We still have 2 months before we have to worry about stuff."  He just doesn't get that in 4 weeks if I go into labor, we're having the baby, there's no stopping it. LOL  I think he'll understand once we're closer to then.  I need to get on him about reading the books too.  He's pretty good about it, but I want to make sure he has time to read them and know what's going on in the hospital and when we first get home.  I have a meeting with a pediatrician on July 1st.  It's later than I'd like, but it's the first time they could get us in.  Then I have my breastfeeding class on July 7th.  So much stuff is going on in the next few months!

29 weeks down, 11 to go

I have been going crazy this week.  My hubby, bless his heart, is not getting that I'm going crazy with the nesting stuff, and I'm trying not to nag him too much.  He's getting upset with me about how much I'm nagging him now, but I think what he doesn't realize is that literally all I think about all day is getting the house ready and done so that I can help him with as much as possible before I'm so big that I can't move around.  I mean, he complains now that I can't help him with certain projects because I'm pregnant, it's not going to get any better between now and when the baby is born.  And I'm not going to be able to do these things for about 6 weeks after the baby is born either.  It drives me crazy that my priorities and his are no where near the same.  He's complaining at me to get my scrapbooking stuff organized (we just moved it from the nursery to the basement bedroom), but I don't see that as an immediate issue, I'd much rather spend time working on the floors in the nursery or shampooing the carpet in our living room.  The baby will probably never be downstairs unless he's down there with me while I'm scrapbooking (which I don't really do too much anymore because again, I have other things that need my attention right now).

I guess what's really getting to me is that Hubby doesn't have every weekend off.  I do.  He complains now that he doesn't have people to help him out because it seems like the only time he can do the projects are during the week on days he has off when everyone else is working.  I can't get through to him that he needs to do these projects on the weekends then when people are off and can help him.  I told him earlier this week, if he's going to do the floors in the nursery and he wants help, he needs to call people then and ask them.  You can't wait until Saturday morning to ask people to help you because by then they'll most likely have plans.  It's just annoying that if I try to reason with him, he doesn't listen, but when I bug him to get it done, he complains about why he can't do it because he didn't do the planning earlier when I told him he needed to.
