What excites you most about going from a family of three to one of four? What makes you nervous?
The road trip sounds exciting--have fun!!
Baby boy is definitely "quieter" overall than DD was. He usually moves a lot when I first wake up in the morning, not just kicks but rolls or something - big movements. DD would kick all day long, but this little guy seems to rest more...fingers crossed for a good sleeper? Of course, it could be that the difference in my daily routine is messing with how much I notice the movement. I was sitting at a desk all day then, but now I'm chasing DD around, so maybe I'm only noticing his kicks when I get a moment to sit still.
I'm most excited to see the relationship between DD and the baby. She is SO excited to big a big sister, and ive been informed several times that the babyin my belly is not my baby, he's hers. She did say that the baby in her belly is mine, though, and wants me to say hi to "him" all the time. I'm second most excited to see DH as a father to a son.
I'm most nervous about the first couple of months after baby is born. DH has five really intense weeks of school starting September 24, and while we have put the request for help out to family members, we only have a firm commitment for one week of help, so it's mostly going to be all on me. I'm worried about the transition to 'big sister' mostly on my own.
