Hello. My name is Christa.

I live on a largish island,
with my husband and our cat.

My unborn baby boy likes to kick me in the ribs.

I’m happy that you found a good (and less expensive!) doula! I also can relate to you not having a car thing too. When I had Gav my Husband went back and forth by taxi to check on our dogs. Your packing regimen is funny:) all this makes me nostalgic!
My brother is going to come watch our cat once I go to the hospital.
5 days left until the EDD and I still haven’t packed.  I’m starting to find it more hilarious than stressful.  Today is my last day at work so I’m pretty much running out of excuses, haha.  My sister-in-law is visiting from the mainland tonight so unless she wants to help me pack, maybe I’ll do it tomorrow.  You know, maybe.

Could there ever have been a time when Gavin wasn’t a giant ball of adorable baby rolls??

I broke a nail and it took several days to grow out enough for me to trim the broken part off and it was distressing.  Pity me.

Oooooh myyy gossssh the time has flown so much and you’re like RIGHT THERE!! Are ya excited? Are ya nervous!? How’s your doula situation panning out? #7daystillArmandarrives :) yeeeeehaaawww
Very excited.  o.o  And so nervous that I’m in full denial and procrastination swing.  :)  Last night I decided that I should (finally) pack my hospital bags - so I took out a backpack, put in hair elastics, a robe, slippers, flip flops, one nursing tank, and then decided that was good enough for now and stopped packing.  :P

We’ve got a new doula and I think she’s going to be perfect.  She’s going to ride her (electric assist) bike down from a neighbourhood not especially close to ours once I’m in labour and that cracks me up.  And then we’ll all catch a cab to the hospital together, once I’m ready, because we don’t have a car either, haha.  She’s also $250 less than our old doula so I’m $250 more comfortable about the doula cheque and the rent cheque both clearing during the awkward 6 weeks between my last pay cheque and my first mat leave cheque.

I did sort the clothes all out by size though.  One full little dresser of “newborn” and the second little dresser full of “3 month”.  And Yan put together this glorious car seat and stroller.  So we’re not 100% fucked if I go into labour today.

To prove that I’m not joking when I say, “no, the nursery is not set up yet.”
