I've had a rough day. I'm still fighting this sick - my doctor's office called today to say my white blood count is elevated and that I probably need an antibiotic. Yay. Work was hard, and I'm behind on a million things that should've been done days ago. I'm overwhelmed by the number of things needing to be done in the next 12 weeks and I don't know how we're going to get them all done because I don't seem to have the energy for anything more challenging than reading the internet once I get home from work each evening.
I have about a thousand other words to write about how I'm feeling tonight, but they can't be written here. Maybe one day, but not today.
dude feel better soon.ReplyDelete
I know things are really overwhelming right now. Just remember that there's a difference in wants and needs for the baby. All she really NEEDs are a carseat and diapers. Everything else will fall into place. If things aren't completely done when she arrives, she'll never know. Take a deep breathe, and enjoy your new computer!ReplyDelete
When I was pregnant with Olivia and we went into L&D 3 weeks early because I was about to die from eclampsia they told me we were going to have to deliver her. The only thing I kept freaking out about was how not ready we were yet. The crib was just barely set up, but I hadn't washed and linens or clothes, there were no decorations in her room. No bottles or pacifiers and definitely not clothes for a 5 pound baby! Ray kept telling me it would be okay. That none of that would matter. My sister went to our house and set the basinette up in our room and washed blankets & sheets and after Olivia was here and my mom was with me in the hospital Ray went to Target & Babies R Us and bought a ton of clothes and bottles and pacifiers and you know what happened? Everything was just fine. Sure we made about 100 unnecessary trips to BRU & Target after she was born those first few weeks, but we were okay. And you will be perfect. I just know it. Didn't I tell you after I got pregnant that you were next? Didn't I tell you that this was your year? And haven't I been right? So I'm telling you that you & Jimi and baby girl will be perfect.ReplyDelete
