I’m 29 weeks and I also feel like everything I do I end up using it as a countdown till baby. 

My most recent one is doctor appointments.  I’ve just entered the “every two week” phase and at my last appointment, I made all my future appointment from here until due date.  I counted them and I have 7 appointments until my due date! So right now I’m using the doctor appointment countdown Smile

Funny you should say this, I just told my DH we only have 32 more weekends to ourselves, so we really need to be making the most of them!

@iarebridezilla:  due date advent calendars would be AWESOME!! but with chocolate right, as even the christmas ones are only so so without choc inside!

This is hilarious.

I do have an app on my phone…a widget actually. It’s called ‘Days Left’. I put in the date of the event and it will do a countdown right on my phone. It is helpful for things coming up like big concerst, cruises, or the wedding – not sure if you want to know how many days you are from baby though – might be a big number lol

@iarebridezilla:  theres clearly a gap in the market!! i actually really think id buy one. but something with a little bit of educational info too, so its not just an excuse to eat chocolate 😛

at least you only have a few months to go, ive literally just found out im pregnant. waiting for the first scan is killing me!!

@iarebridezilla:  I feel you on the short engagement! We STARTED planning in under 300 days 🙂 but we had 8 mths of planning. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. I can’t  imagine the girls who spend two years of their lives doing this.

Well, good luck on your countdowns!

@KH:  Oh god. It’s scary when you put it like that. 18 weekends left until we’re no longer child-free. That’s gonna go fast.

I was counting in boxes of tea. I have a cup of ginger tea every morning, and there are 20 bags in a box, so I recently told myself that I’m 6 boxes of tea from my baby.

I wonder if anywhere makes custom advent calendars. I’d like to make this a real thing.

@bunnymama:  That is a great idea! Especially if each day of the calendar gives a little sweet surprise. You could sell those on Etsy, I would buy one!

@iarebridezilla:  How about adding a monthly massage?
