Hard to believe we are less than 1 month away from meeting Cruz Adriana! While I am feeling very uncomfortable and big as I write this at 37 weeks, I know I will miss my baby bump/being pregnant. It’s been a beautiful journey!
I also never thought I’d have this much done for her arrival. It was overwhelming when I did my 2 month out checklist, but I am proud to say we have gotten most of our shit done!
1 month out checklist
•Hospital bag & put it in the car ✓ [finally finished this at 37 weeks]
•Buy nursing bras ✓[bought at 35 weeks from Macy’s – it’s a sports bra and super supportive]
•Wash all her clothes and blankets ✓ [did this all at 36 weeks – best feeling ever to have it all done]
•Check up on status of breast pump ✓ [received it at 36 weeks]
•Learn how to work the breast pump & sterilize all parts ✓ [Did this at 38 weeks]
•Install car seat in car ✓ [thank you hubs for doing this]
•Relax [trying my best to do this, but at the same time I like to stay busy]
