I was talking with my boss the other day (he was asking about when I was starting leave, which I was like I have plenty of time) and realized that technically, not that I want/nor think my little one will be too early, but realistically those that are due the first week of June (i'm the 8th so I count it as the first week) are seriously at a point where we are less than four months away... like just over 15 weeks and they are considered born at full-term (37 weeks)! Wow... It seemed like I had so long until I looked at it like that!
I know, I was looking at my ticker and realized that in one month I will be in the double digits for the countdown to my due date. This is going by way too quickly, especially since this is my second and DH and I only want to be a family of 4, so this will be my last pregnancy.
We keep putting stuff off, and I've been having the strange realization that yeah, I don't actually have that much time. The nursery still needs painting and organizing and there's so much in there that needs to come out!
I disagree ladies. It sounds like FOREVER to me I feel huge already and when I look at the calendar and go "Oh my gosh I still have 4 months to go" I want to cry. Seriously 4 more months of not sleeping, not breathing well, not walking well, and not eating well. Sheesh. BRING ON THE BABY!!! I want her to stay in there as long as she needs, I just wish time would speed up a little.
Guess I'm the oddball out LOL
mami2three, I feel the same way.....when I think of doing this for another 15-16 weeks....I'm like, "really?" And then when I realize that it's just going to get harder and MORE UNCOMFORTABLE.....yea, I feel like crying. I want healthy babies, don't get me wrong-I will be doing everything I can to keep these girls cooking until mid-May at least....but it feels like it's a LOOOOONG way off.....
This pregnancy is going way faster than my first one did. Maybe it's because this time I was pregnant through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. The holidays really help speed things along; for me, anyway.
Yeah it feels like since I hit the halfway mark I can't believe how close I am. I guess b/c the 1st 20 wks went by so fast probably from the holidays. I just keep thinking of the list of things I have yet to do still!!
