36 weeks and a long to-do list

I had my routine 36 weeks doctor's appointment today. The doctor said the baby has stayed head down, so we should have no worries about the baby being breech for delivery. I have gained 2 more pounds, and am steadily gaining a pound a week, which is normal. The nurse today was very nice, going on about how I look like I am all belly and not to worry about my weight and how I should be one of those pregnant models...ok, she was pushing the truth there, but it was still very sweet. I am further dialated now, with my cervix being soft and am 50% effaced. The doctor said she doesnt think I will make it to my due date, and that I will be having this baby early. So I guess my 4 weeks more time frame is out the window...

I do have way to many things to get done before the baby comes, and am hoping by making a list it will help me get focused:
  • wash all the baby's clothes, car seat cover, swing cover, and bed linens ( 1 load in the washer right now!)
  • Set up the baby's crib (this weekend hopefully)
  • buy missing harware pieces for the crib (going to try to do this tomarrow morning)
  • buy a crib mattress
  • Tag and price items for rummage sale I am participating in on the 27th (started a little bit)
  • Install infant car seat base (have an app. for monday morning with a technician)
  • Get a dresser for the baby or figure out some way to store the baby's clothes and blankets
  • Plan my son's birthday party that should be happening at the end of the month
