I am so hormonal. Under normal circumstances the things upsetting me wouldn't matter. I forgot how hard the last bit is mentally as well as physically. I love DH. I love Marsi. I also feel the need to have daycare for the next 4 weeks. I told DH that I wanted him to get some sort of take out for dinner since I am getting frustrated with "bachelor" foods, but alas, bean and cheese burritos will be served. He knows when he says stuff like that I get up and cook. So, I am going to cook something healthy for us tonight even though I have zero desire. I feel like I am failing in a hundred different ways at once. Sorry to vent, yet again. It all stems from my terror of DH being a long plane ride away for 5 days week after next. I don't want to inadvertently cause. Y body to go into labor before or while he is gone. I know logically the chances are slim to none, but I worry a lot about those 5 days.
I'm hormonal too. I was talking with my husband about daycare, and he said something about how many vacations we could take with the amount we'll be paying for infant care- and I burst into tears. We took a long vacation to France in my first trimester of my first pregnancy, and at my appt the day after we returned I found I'd had a missed miscarriage. His comment reminded me of that, as well as of his reservations at trying again after loss. At any rate, I understand how you're feeling. There's just SO MUCH to keep deal with. You're not alone, friend!
I'm sorry you're feeling hormonal. I was a mess toward the end of my 3rd trimester. I was also terrified when my DH would have to leave to go long haul trucking. I was so scared I'd go into labor while he was gone. Turned out, I went 5 days over. And he was able to be there for the birth, so it all worked out. I wouldn't let your DH jerk you around about cooking. You already are cooking 24/7---baking that baby. Pamper yourself if the budget allows.
Hugs. It's so hard being PAL already, plus the last few weeks can be h*ll, we understand. And I totally understand the cooking. I have no interest in cooking most days myself. Sadly I've to often resorted to frozen dinners (I do try to limit them to once or twice a week, but that's more often than normal) or pizza. I just try to remember that it's only a few more weeks, we can do this.
