Hello AllHello Everyone,
This is my first time joining the weekly chat and I am happy to be here.
My husband and I are expecting our first baby December 19th and are very excited.
The Bad News
This week I am nervous that I haven't felt the baby (not sure what's going on in there) and anxious about my check in appointment tomorrow. Mostly I feel extremely fat, tired, overwhelmed, unprepared, grateful, and hungry.
My husband has tonsillitis and needs a lot of care, we also have a puppy who needs care. Right now I am thanking god that we don't have any other children yet (because I don't think I could take care of one more thing).
The Good News
I've definitely reached the nesting stage, which for me means when I'm not sleeping I'm cleaning, cooking, and organizing like a mad woman. I joined Motivated Moms and am hoping the chore schedule will help me to stay on top of everything.
The Reality Check
I have to say despite the exhaustion and anxiety, after reading Cathy's farewell I was reminded of just how much I have to be grateful for. My heart goes out to you and your family Cathy and I am praying for your healing.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
