Morebabies, I couldn't believe it took that long to get daycare as well but spots are limited and it is quite competitive around here.
We actually haven't bought too much for baby either, just the crib and dresser and a few other small items (baby on board signs for our cars, two sleepers). I think the only other thing we will buy after finding out the sex of the baby is the bedding set (as I will use colours from that to help design the nursery) and then a few pieces of additional furniture for the nursery. We'll register for everything else we need and see what we get at our baby shower. Plus you get so many items of clothing, etc from people that I would rather wait until later on and then re-evaluate to see if we need, (though I will likely cave and buy some clothes)
The new car is a pretty big purchase but makes sense. Our friends with twin boys got a mini-van and swear that it was by far one of the best decisions that that they made. It apparently makes travelling much easier.
Harrison is still in scbu but is now breathing air, ha antibiotics for infection and will hopefully be out of incubator today and ten in cot in scbu for a week or so and then the LONG awaited home
Fab news! Can't imagine how draining a long hospital stay must be. We were in an ordinary ward for 3 days and I was going stir crazy. The sense of relief walking out that night was immense. Keep us updated, sounds like the little guy is doing great though.
Nimbec that will be so great when you can finally take your little one home! Glad everything is going well tho!
I agree with panda. I can't stand being laid up in the hospital. With my first once I got through the horrible 28 hours of labor I was out of the hospital in under 48 hours due to my constant nagging everyone that walked in the room to go home. With my second labor was 18 hours and again I went right back to bothering everyone to let me go home and again less then 48 hours later I had left. Luckily I had two healthy babies so leaving wasn't an issue. I'm not a bad patient.. I'm just definitely one of those people who just likes to be at home and sleeping in my own bed. A friend of mine who just had a baby actually chose to stay an extra day. I'm also hoping for a much shorter labor this time around.. although its been so many years who knows what will happen!
Nimbec, hope your little Harrisson keeps going from strength to strength!
Well ladies, tonight is my last night at home before we get to meet Ethan!! Tomorrow night after 10 I check into the hospital and then have my section at about 8am the next day. Wow, writing this I've started getting heart palpitations I'm so nervous and excited!!
