First, let me apologize for the eh quality of these photos...no one told me that the last few days of pregnancy would be as draining as they have been, and by the time I got around to shooting these, it was getting dark outside!
I wanted to pop in and share just a quick little craft I threw together over the weekend for our Labor and Delivery nurses when Sawyer (finally) decides to arrive. (P.s...our due date is 2 weeks from today...HOORAY!)
I've never had a baby, obviously, but all I know is that anyone who has to deal with a lady in labor on a regular basis, needs a little pick me up! Hopefully this cheers our nurses up, and encourages them to put a rush on my epidural ;)
I just picked up some cellophane gift bags from Walmart and I loaded them up with:
- Boxes of Craisins (my favorite snack!)
- Belvita Energy Bars
- Hand Sanitizer
- Hand Lotion
I created this little tag in photoshop, printed it out, and tied everything up with a twine bow!
The entire project took less than an hour and I spent around $50.00 on 10 bags. You could certainly spend more/less depending on your budget and how many bags you were making! I've also heard from nurses that a box of donuts, or some cookies to put at the nurses station make an excellent surprise, and it would be even simpler to throw together.
We're in the 14 day countdown to baby S, and I can't tell you how ready I am. 2 weeks seems like an eternity, but it's also a little crazy to think that for the next few days it will be only Jake, Axl, and I for the last time in our lives. I'm trying my best to soak it in, through the misery! The picture above is so hilarious to me. On the left, I am 10 weeks and just sure I have the worlds largest bump. On the right, i'm 37 weeks and you can see...there isn't much more room for little man to grow!
Did you make anything for your L&D nurses? Any last minute tips/tricks i'm forgetting before the big D day?
Thanks so much for reading!
Until Next Time,
