    Lots and lots of movement from baby Weezie over here!  Not sleeping the best, but feeling pretty awesome.

    Just feeling overwhelmed that nothing is done and I need my husband's help to get stuff done and he's a shitty planner so he's now in his busy season and doesn't have time to get anything done.  At least my kids' activities are starting to wrap up (dance/gymnastics/prep/dek hockey/ice hockey) so maybe we'll start to have more time in the evenings.

    What do you have done for baby, and what do you still need to do?
    Nothing.  We don't really have anything so my SIL will be giving us some of her stuff.  I have a friend that gave us a few things.  Room is not ready at all because DD is still in there.  Her room that she's moving in to hasn't even been started.  DS's room still needs to be finished, although it's livable and he's in it.  I know all a baby needs is somewhere to sleep, a few onesies, and diapers and wipes but I need more than that to feel comfortable bringing another baby home.  Oy!

    DH is being a douche lately.  I don’t feel like hes connected to baby either.  He doesn’t read or talk to her and has no interest feeling her move but yet says he is excited about her coming.  Makes me nervous.  And he still isn’t offering to help me around the house- just being a constant PITA.

    What do you have done for baby, and what do you still need to do?

    Nursery is about 80% done.  I still need a little bookcase, a mirror and to figure out what I am doing with the closet.  DH is renovating our master bath and closet which means my clothes are in the guest room and his are in the babys closet right now so I cant organize all her clothes for another month or so which is frustrating.

    Mostly just getting the remainder of the stuff I need but I wont do that till after the shower in June, so its just a waiting game now.

    30 weeks! Zucchini

    sleeping sucks, I switch sides almost every 30 minutes and wake up with hip/back pain. I miss sleeping on my back.  Constipation has picked up. heart palpitations still steady. sore/swollen feet at the end of the day. so much wiggling from the babe though so it makes it worth it.

    30 week appt tomorrow. I think after that it's every 2 weeks!

    I think this has been asked before, but we let our 2 dogs and cat sleep in our room/bed with us. I keep wanting to start transitioning them to out of the room in their crates at night, but it makes me so sad for now because I'll miss them. Even though they are part of the reason for bad sleeping at night (they are bed/cover hogs) but I know once the babe is here I don't think I'll want them on our bed anymore. Not sure what to do.

    Baby shower is this weekend. I'm pretty excited for it! my mom has put so much time and effort into it. Can't wait to see the results.
    We got a white shag rug for the nursery. My cat decided to piss all over it while we were gone on vacation for the last week. She NEVER goes to the bathroom outside of her litter box. I think she was pissed (literally) that we ditched her for 8 days and blamed the new room/rug on it. My mom and FIL both stopped by alternating days to check on her and feed/clean her box. So now we're torn between just getting a new one (it was about $80) or trying to clean it with pet odor solution. My dad says he has a cleaner we could borrow, but cat urine is super rancid and so hard to fully get the smell out. meh

    What do you have done for baby, and what do you still need to do?
    We got the dresser delivered on Saturday and a bookcase coming today I think. Already have the crib and closet set up. and my mom is getting us a glider. Then that should be about it for the nursery. Excited for the baby shower so we can get things washed and put away.

    I’m sitting in the waiting room of my dentist because I either broke my tooth or lost a filing on saturday I would litetally rather be running down the street naked. Ugh I hate mouthes and teeth and dentists ans everythig to do with it. 
    What do you have done for baby, and what do you still need to do?
    We still have to do everything. We have just about everything (except bottles and diapers) but i still have to do everything. -_- Waiting on DH to finish his room. 
  • @rachelsogo do you plan on bed sharing with baby? It would definitely be MORE dangerous to bed share with baby and pets, but its dangerous on its own. If not, i say let them sleep with you. Are they loud at night and you're afraid of them waking up baby? That would be my problem with my dogs, but i crate them. I have 3 small (<10lb) dogs and i put them all in an x-large dog crate. I put a piece of carpet padding and carpet in there and they have blankets and pillows. They've been crated from the begining though, although they have slept with us before (always crated when we leave the house). 

    Side note- my dogs dont chew stuff up and aren't destructive so i trust them with carpet. If your dogs would chew it i wouldnt put it in there. 
  • @paytonpedro No not planning on bed sharing. We'll have a bassinet for baby. The dogs are loud snorers, but I guess not too worried about the noise either since I know we want babe to learn to sleep through noises. They're both crate trained so they have no problem being in their crates full of blankets and pillows. I guess I'm just thinking I would get better sleep without them on the bed since they do take up a lot of space and sometimes kick/shuffle/scoot around. Our bed is SUPER tall, so we have stairs for them to get up/down..maybe we just take the stairs away and give them their own beds so they can still be in the same room. haha kinda ridiculous to think of how much we cater to our pets, but they were our first kids and I don't want to just shoo them away just because a human child is being added to the mix. Thanks for walking me through that thought process..I know it will make my hubby happy not kicking them completely out of the room.

  • @rachelsogo there you go! That sounds like the perfect compromise! For a while we put a crate in our room for them to sleep in (my dogs are sneaky poopers and will take any opportunity to poop in the house even if they were JUST out  :| ). Sounds like keeping them close will be perfect for all of you!!

  • My dogs are 50 and 80 pounds.  My husband is 6'4".  We all sleep in my Queen sized bed.  The smaller dog is up and down usually, but the older, bigger guy is in it to win it all night long.  Makes for some uncomfortable and interesting positioning on my part.  If I yell at them, they do eventually move though. Husband included in the yelling.  He's the most annoying of all of them!

  • @WorkinWeezel are the dogs staying in your room/bed when the new babe comes home?
