Have I really slacked off for more than a week? Where does the time go?
For those of you who like to play your music CD's in your CD-ROM drives, especially those in laptops, check your disks from time to time for scratches. I just scratched 3 of my all-time favorite CD's by playing them on my work laptop (IBM Thinkpad). So now I have had to venture over to BMG and replace them.
Tomorrow marks 37 weeks of pregnancy for Gidgit. That means the due date is only 3 weeks away! We both would rather he comes earlier rather than later, as we are ready to get on with this chapter of our lives.
Doctor's visit yesterday. Mom is healthy, baby is healthy, the pregnancy is going by the book so far. Just over 4 weeks till the due date. I am still thinking the baby will be here early.
I had an interesting dream two nights ago. I was out with the baby. The baby was probably 6 months old, and a girl! Each time we have had a sonagram, the evidence points very strongly to the aby being a boy, but you never know. Anyway, I am sure that this is a typical dream of expecting parents who have already learned the baby's sex. If the only "complication" during labor is that the baby is actually a girl...who cares? We will love the baby no matter what.
Tonight we finished our 4 week class on preparing for childbirth. Sitting at home, I feel less prepared than I ever have. Perhaps this feeling is due to the overwhelmingly comprehensive review we had in class...did I sleep through the others?
I am sure that it is nothing, and the feeling will pass. Still, it is odd. I felt so confident, so sure, before. Now I feel a little lost...the pressure and stress are settling in.
It was almost like winter time again, with ashes from the forest fire
dropping all around like snow flakes. The huge cloud of smoke
rose over the mountains just to the west of us...I don't think I've ever been so close...
Time to put the nursery
So we're just over a month away from the due date. Am I nervous? Not really. Should I be? I don't know. I feel like I have been preparing most of my life for this. Growing up, when I was made to do something I didn't want to do, or was told that I couldn't do what I wanted to do, I would look at it from a parent's perspective to determine how I would handle it. Am I ready? Absolutely!
