I think it's totally irresponsible for the NP I met with two weeks ago to have said, "You'll feel movement any day now." Especially since that window for feeling movement is so varied. I have nightmares about having a dead baby inside me and sometimes when I wake up, I'm totally paranoid and wondering if my pregnancy was my imagination. I know I'm being dramatic, but even though all is going smoothly so far, I'm still really scared deep down.
Other than that, I'm just trying to forge ahead. Went to a colleague's baby shower the other day. She was adorably preggo and cleaned up on gifts. Even though this is #2 for me, with the time that has passed since DS (5+ years -- we have a lot of stuff, but will still need some essentials) and the baby possibly being a different sex, my coworker is already talking about a shower for me. Really surreal, but twould be really fun.
Also trying to line-up a long-term substitute and and job-share partner for the coming school year. Have 2 good candidates. Hope to get things nailed down soon. I'm a planner. Haven't quite gotten to the childcare research part yet, want to give it a bit more time... to be even more real (like after my 20 week u/s).
Really excited to work on the nursery... maybe will do a bit of that over Spring Break... and then a lot over summer vacation.
The big date is March 19 in the late afternoon -- my dr better not reschedule on me! Feeling a combo of excitement with a bit of fear thrown in there...
Positive thoughts, vibes, spirits, etc... How do you guys get yourself to think positively??? SO HARD!
