3timesamom -- that is some craziness from your OB's office. I hope you've had your share of craziness and now it will all be over!
cameragirl, sorry about your aunt, and your poor neighbour. I wonder if there are laws about letting adults who can't care for themselves wander like that?
lizsky, I was feeling a lot of anxiety at the beginning of this pregnancy, and for me, with anxiety comes excessive worry about my kids' safety. It was a problem the first month or so after my youngest was born, too. I was having dreams where a kid was in danger and I couldn't help in time, and when I was awake, I would be super edgy about things like walking near or on the stairs with the baby, taking the stairs slowly and not just holding the rail but also leaning on the wall to make sure I didn't fall. I don't have any advice, just commiseration. For me, it just went away on its own; until then, I stayed away from movies or shows or books that were scary or upsetting in any way, and I stopped listening to the news.
I can commiserate about worrying about your dh, too. I tend to get those same kinds of worries, pregnant or not. The man who married us started off with a story he had read about an older couple who were arguing bitterly before he left for work in the morning. The woman yelled something about being happy he was leaving or not wanting to see him again as he left the house. He died at work that day. So the advice he was giving us was always part on happy terms, or something, but all I could think was Arg, this must be an omen of some kind, that's exactly the type of scenario I worry about and now it's being told as a story at my wedding. Sometimes, if dh leaves a message on the machine to say he's coming home late from work, I can't bring myself to delete it before he arrives home, because what if that's the last time I hear his voice, and I just erased it?
About my house -- I'm not meaning to complain about it, it's just all of these renovations. I knew they would take a long time, but I grew up in a similar situation and didn't think it would be a big deal. I don't think the kids care, but I'm feeling more unsettled than I thought I would.
I'm 97% sure I'm feeling the baby move now. I think I won't feel completely sure about it until I can feel it from the outside, though. But I'm getting little nudges that feel very babyish.
