Sarah- the 20 week mark is taking me by surprise too! I'm 17wks now and I can't believe we're almost halfway through! A couple nights ago it kind of sunk in that soon we are actually going to have a baby,
that I'm not just going to be pregnant from now on
I've been waiting until ds goes back to school this week to get any real organizing going on.
My dh has restarted working on our bathroom reno this week- we ripped it apart a year ago (!) when I had the intention of recaulking the tub. When I did, I realized how gross the rest of the washroom was, well at least the tub area- there was a 60 yr old steel tub that was yellowing and the finish was coming off, there was a nasty old plastic tub surround that was yellowing and gross, so down it came and out came the tub (via sledgehammer), to find out that there were gross old ceramic tiles CEMENTED to the studs. So basically, half the washroom was gutted
We got a new tub in, dh did the plumbing & got some of the cement board put up. Then spring & summer came & we got too busy to do any more work. This wknd he finished the cement board and we bought tiles so he's gonna start the tiling
My goal is to have a bath in our nice new deep tub before the baby comes!
My ds starts school tomorrow
This is his second year, he's going in to Senior Kindergarten, he's starting a new school though as he's going into French Immersion. He's a bit anxious about the language & not knowing anyone but I know he'll do fine. I'm a bit anxious for him but trying not to show it. We've been talking a lot about it & preparing him for as best we can. Last night he got a bit sad, saying he was going to miss me. He's only in afternoons though so it's just a couple hours each day. I told him he will have lots of fun, he can introduce himself and make new friends. He said "YA! I can tell them I'm Trent, I'm really fast and smart and I have the greatest Mom in the world!`
Chula- my kids are 29 months apart and I love the age gap. Ds was really into helping out with her, now they play together. They fight and bicker all the time too, but they love each other and are growing up well together.
My 3 yr old dd is pretending to be a baby too. I indulge her for now, it`s like a game to her, she just says `I`m a baby, say I`m cute!` and that`s about it
I`m feeling a lot more movement now, which is great and reassuring. I have my next midwife appt tomorrow & we are taking the kids, which they are very excited about. Then I get to find out when I can go for my next ultrasound
