Saying No To Nesting and instead resting. I felt that way on Wednesday and turned a blind eye to my list of "nesting projects" I had put together weeks prior.
That night, I felt funny all night. I just felt weird. I woke up Thursday morning and realized I had lost my mucus plug. A sign for me, that labor was soon upon me within a matter of days. Anyone else know when they lost their mucus plug by the way? I'm the only one in my circle of friends that has been able to tell with both pregnancies when this happened. Mucus plug, sounds so gross too right?
Anyhow, after we got the kids off to school I had a freak out moment of epic proportions and told Art we were in no way ready for this baby. The house was a mess, the pack n play or crib weren't set up, there were no groceries in the house and my freaking bag wasn't even packed! I was about as hysterical as I get. I decided the only reasonable thing to do was call my mom. She talked me down from the ledge and agreed to come over for a couple of hours in the morning before she went to my sister's house to celebrate her birthday with her.
And so against my previous convictions and statements, I nested the hell out of this house. I cleaned out all of my makeup supplies and toiletries, and tossed what I didn't need or want, including all those samples you collect over the years. I washed my makeup brushes too. I cleaned out my night stand and threw tons of old magazines away, I cleaned out my desk drawer and the freezer, fridge and pantry (with my mom's help), and she helped me tackle the grocery list. I cleaned out my purse and wallet, throwing away or filing old receipts and such. I went through the mail and all the kid's school paperwork and filed accordingly.
I even vacuumed out the tracks for the sliding doors and washed them down with soapy water. They were disgusting. Because you know, clean sliding door tracks are an essential part of bringing a newborn baby home.
So against any desire I had on my own, nature truly took over and made me clean like a freak yesterday. I'm exhausted today, but did manage to gas up the car just in case, and get it washed. Because clean baby must come home in a clean car, right? Nature sure is a trip, ain't it?
Wish me luck guys! I hope this baby comes this weekend, because me and this house are ready to meet our newest member. I'll be sure to fill you guys in on any action that may occur first via Instagram (I'm @fourflights).
Have a great weekend everyone!
