Two months to go...

My due date is Jan. 30, so as of tomorrow, Dec. 5, I have 9 weeks left to my pregnancy. I feel totally unprepared for Natalie to come into this world. I mean yes I'm ready for her emotionally, I think, but nowhere near ready for her physically. As of this moment her room is still a catch-all, she has nowhere to sleep, and I have no changing table (though I can probably use my bed for now). I waned to paint the room, before my birthday, but that didn't happen. I just feel like these past seven month have flown by. The only big ticket item I have is he travel system. So at least I have a car seat to bring her home. I guess I'm just a little worried and nervous that all I want to get done won't get done in time.

Hey, it's gonna be ok! A lot of the stuff we thought we had to have was not necessary. Even though Lizzy had a crib, she did not even sleep in it for a while. She actually slept in her car seat, since she loved it so much. As for a changing table, they are nice, but a blanket on the floor works just as good. You will be surprised at all the things you can live without! And everything will come together, paint or no paint :) And you can do co-sleeping with Natalie between you guys, babies love that kind of thing. And I hear it makes those midnight feedings much easier! We are all here for you guys, too!

I've thought about co-sleeping, but both of us toss and turn way too much. I would be so afraid of smothering her. We are thinking of getting a pack-n-play that has the changing table and a bassanett.
