Administrative Moms-To-Be Day

Went for my latest sonogram yesterday. At 20 weeks and 3 days my babe is 14 oz and looks enormous. No wonder I feel like a parade float already. I was freaking out a little that I can't feel anything yet, but thankfully he was waving and kicking yesterday, so all is well.

The doctor asked me if I've pre-registered for my delivery. When I said no, she looked alarmed and asked me if I got the "purple packet" at my first preggo visit. Well, of course I didn't get it, hence my oblivion about having to register for birth WAY in advance.

Reading the contents of the packet last night scared the bejeezus out of me. Delivery deposits, circumcism decisions, pediatrician. Yikes!

I spent the better part of the day today going through all this crap and getting it sorted out. I do feel much better now. Next up (while I'm on a roll), signing up for various classes and getting our attic fan fixed.

Just call it Administrative Moms-to-be Day!

I didn't know you had to do this either. (I am not pregnant but my sister is). My sister is more than likely having her baby in the city although she lives in the Northern burbs.

I live in Chicago and going to a downtown hospital for the delivery. You should have your sis call her insurance company and ask her doctor. Maybe she didn't get the "purple packet," either!
