But I will never be organised enough. I will never be totally prepared so there does need to be a switch off point.
So here's how I'm going to tether the nesting beast within me: by make a few simple pledges to myself for from now until the baby comes.
Pledge 1: I am going to practice my hypnobirthing relaxation exercises regularly to prepare for birth, be in the moment and get perspective.
Pledge 2: I am going to make sure we are doing as many Euna focused activities as possible. Soft play, drawing, zoo trips, park visits etc.
Pledge 3: I am going to make plans for ME. I want my hair done, my nails done and some alone time. Even if it is just a bath. I really struggle with prioritising myself, tell everyone "I'm fiiiiine" and then flip out when it gets too much (and blame everybody else for not being psychic and realising I was heading for said meltdown).
Pledge 4: Get walking. Presuming the cool weather is now settling in, I need not maroon myself indoors anymore. I'm craving crisp air and working up a sweat for a more cardio-centric reason. Feeling sedentary... Must MOVE!
Pledge 5: A date night. Or 2. Babysitters pending. We must must do this.
Not much productive in the above but I need to do them. I need to do the because there's no point in any of this if we're not enjoying the ride right?! Right.
