It's safe to say the transition into nesting/get everything ready under the sun has begun. It's as if a light switch was turned on in my brain. For so long, pretty much all pregnancy, I haven't felt any urgency to get anything ready. Third kid I guess. Then, all at once I suddenly feel that there's no time and all things should be ready now. For instance, I packed my hospital bag! We have also begun the crazy process of rearranging rooms to accommodate little Popcorn. I think a lot of this has stemmed from the fact that I start work this week and know that a great deal of my time and energy will be spent at school and not folding baby clothes.
Speaking of baby clothes, I sorted all girl and boy clothes and made an even smaller box of gender neutral clothes. From the gender neutral pile, I picked a white kimono and onesie to take to the hospital. I did buy a precious red and white stripe swaddler set because every new baby deserves something that is his/hers.
We had a great vacation. I really slowed down my running while in Alabama. I had a scare of strong and consistent contractions after a 5 mile run. After that happened I stuck to nothing over 2 miles easy.
Now that I'm back home, I'm running up to 3 miles still in the 9 min mile area. Of note, on 4th of July I did a mile time trial and ran a 7:59 mile!!! Not bad for 31 weeks pregnant.
