I'm just waiting now and I am getting very bored. Bad SPD means I cant walk or wander round, I can drive for 15-20 mins max and find sitting in the same place for a while very uncomfortable.
So far I have:
Stocked the freezer and cupboards. Cleaned out every cupboard and the garage. Washed everything from skirting boards to light fittings. Made a list of baby groups. Got some birthday cards and presents for the first few months. Arranged holiday activities for ds. Read book after book. Watched tv (saving the good books and boxsets for when baby arrives). Done the garden. Cleaned out the cars. Sorted out baby room and ds's room. Car seat fitted, pushchair washed and ready to go. Baby toys washed and sorted. Packed hospital bags. Visited family and friends (that I can get to). Meet up with dh for lunch. Sleeping - so much sleeping (possibly sleeping too much)! Eat (sadly). Done my nails (feet and hands). Had a hair cut. I cant sit in the sun anymore as chairs hurt and I boil. Cant get in and out of the bath either. I've even washed ds's bath toys!
I'm trying very hard to enjoy peace and quiet and me time while it lasts but seriously I've had enough now. Any suggestions?
I looked today at the cinema times and I cant get one that fits in with collecting ds from school in time.
We've used up our babysitting time by going to the theatre and having a meal out over the last few weeks.
As i've done this before we know this time is precious but its been the longest week of my life. Except those first few weeks when I will just exist to be a set of boobs, hence the boxset and book saving.
OP not much help here but I am 39 weeks and in awe of how much you have done - and I don't have SPD to deal with! I am finding the days go so fast and I don't even get much extra sleeping in.
So For what it's worth apart from more resting - this is what is still on my to do list ( unlikely to get done though!)
Sort out old paperwork / filing - shred what I don't need. Diarise bills etc that need paying next few months Organise old photos Ironing Reflexology Work out how to use our camera / video camera properly Charity shop some toys Download reading to kindle
cup cake no real ideas but I feel for you and am really impressed by what you have done. I am also suffering with spd (at 33 weeks) and worried that I may not be able to do anything at all by that stage. If you can afford it I would go for nice treats such as massage or reflexology. My dh has offered to pay for a mum to be spa day for me which I am very much looking forward to. I would also have a big freecycle/ebay declutter. Not too physical, you'll get rid of stuff and make money! Dentist is very good idea as it is free for now.
