    Between lack of sleep, peeing all the time, hips and legs in massive pain from my sciatic nerve, swollen feet, keeping up with my 2 year old and the sudden slap of nesting instinct, i am so ready to have this baby. lol i have a scheduled C-section on 11-11-11 but i dono if i wanna go that much longer. i will say the sudden rush of energy was so nice today, but i took off way more then i could chew. now im left with a heaping pile of clean laundry to fold and put away, a floor that desperately needs to be shampooed, a dishwasher full of dishes to put away and several huge bags to go to the second hand store, but i am spent. still need to put the bassinet together too! /sigh and some how i know as soon as my daughter wakes up its all gunna look like a tornado hit the house all over again. sorry for the vent, but i know im not the only one out thee praying for labor to start lol. my bags are packed and everything, come on lets do more then braxton hicks! hehe

    We sounds so much alike lol. I have a 3 yr old & a husband so clean the house from top to bottom but as soon as they wake up or whatever the house is back to being a mess. Makes me sooo angry lol. I dont have my bags packed. I know I should of already done that but I'm sure I have a few more weeks to wait.

    LOL Your life may mirror mine. I have a rambunctious 2 yr old boy who has a terrible ear infection right now and the DH just got sick from his flu shot. Luckily my C-Section date isn't until 11-19-11 so I have some time to go crazy and lose my mind. DS is great at making a mess but he's gotten better with cleaning up after himself, so that REALLY helps. I am exhausted all the time and climbing stairs is a nightmare to me. I take all the help I can get!
    Best of luck on your EDD!

    I'm definately ready to have this baby. I also have an almost 2 year old. I swear I clean my kitchen and living at least 3 times a day. My DH will be leaving me to go to work in another state, I'm grateful because we desperately need the money but the thought of carrying groceries, laundry and daughter up and down our 3 flights of stairs to our apartment, plus doing all the last minute baby preparations and shopping on my own has me a little worried. My back and hips our killing me by the end of the day. I'm tired of going to work and sleeping all day and taking endless bathroom trips and I'm starting to grow out of my maternity clothes but I refuse to by more because I'm so close, sort of...just 6 more weeks.
