We're on countdown here, folks.  8 days left as "just us."  I feel like we need to have a "mardi gras" of sorts and do all the things that we're not going to be able to do again for a long time or that will just be different when baby gets here.  What are some things that you guys did in the last days before your baby arrived?  We're planning on going out for one more fancy dinner.  We'll probably get one more movie in.  I have a microdermabrasion appointment and may go ahead and try to get a haircut in since it will probably be a while before I can go to the salon.  A pedicure is also in order, and I should probably go ahead and get an eyebrow wax even though they aren't that bad yet.  Given them a week after baby is born, though, and I'm sure they'll be unruly.  

What else?  I feel like my husband and I need to live it up.  

I could also use some advice from moms who have had c-sections.  What kinds of things should I make sure I've got at home for when I come home?  I'm thinking I should stock up on snacks.  What else?  

8 days.  I can't believe it!


  1. I would sleep. Get lots and lots of sleep. :)

  2. I agree on the sleep. :-). And a movie out. You will probably need lots of movies in ... as you can watch them when you're awake all night. Or hubby can too.
    I was happy to have my house clean before the Luke came, as I didn't want to clean after that.
    In regard to the C section, after having a laparotomy with a similar incision, I enjoyed a recliner as it was easier to get in and out of than a couch.
    And yes .... Snacks & easy to prepare food! Unless your hubby is a good cook.
    8 days ?!?!??? Wow!!!! So excited for you!!!!
    Oh, also, lay around as much as you can. I miss that sometimes.

  3. Yes, sleep, pedicure, date with hubby. :) And do as much nothing as you can.

  4. Haircut and pedicure are on my list too :)
