I've found myself in the last week or so getting so excited, and impatient to meet this baby! A long way to go yet, obviously! I think it's because I'm almost out of the 1st trimester, so feeling some relief that everything is going so well.
Are you impatient, too?
Yes! I have one co-worker that just had a baby a few weeks ago and one that is due in a few weeks. January seems so far away! But just this week I have been feeling the "more than just fluttery" movements and even kicks against my fingers poking my tummy. That familiar feeling of life moving around inside me is soooo amazing! When you are in the throws of first trimester nausea, all you want to do is get through each day. You forget how amazing the second trimester is! I'm really trying to just relish it, rather than wanting to be closer to the end. But, yes, sometimes I find myself wanting to just hold my baby already!
I am impatient to not be pregnant anymore. While I love the kids I've made/am making and think the whole process of making a baby is amazing and exciting, I am not a fan of being pregnant. I don't like how I feel, I don't like the pain or lack of energy or being treated like I'm a delicate flower. With that said, I am not ready to be the parent of three kids just yet.
I'm not quite ready yet either. All I can notice is that the weeks seem to FLY by...like today is August 1st, meaning it is August, so I've got birthdays that run into Thanksgiving which turns immediately into Christmas, then BAM, Baby time! It'll be here so fast, I'm convinced that we'll still have 1234564363534 things to get done December 1st when we're down to 6 weeks or less...
Uhhh... I'll be blunt. Don't hurt me for that. ;) I can't wait for this to be over, not because I want to meet the baby - tbh the baby doesn't feel "real" to me yet, despite hearing the heartbeat, etc. I just haaaaaaate being pregnant. There's no nice way I can say that. I'm nauseated 24/7 (this doesn't end for me until delivery), throw up at least three times a day, have no energy, my house is a mess, I'm as grumpy as a snapping turtle, I'm physically uncomfortable, we are literally thousands off our budget because we just eat processed crap due to my inability to go into the kitchen to cook anything... I hate how many meds I have to take (when non-pregnant I don't take any) and then worrying about said meds affecting the baby. I miss my other kids who I'm shipping off to daycare/school because I can't handle their energy. None of my clothes fit me. Whine, whine, whine. I just hate it. All of it. And even later on - I never like the kicks, the movements. I just don't "bond" with the baby until after he/she is born. You don't even want to KNOW the names I've called my fetuses. It wasn't "little man" or "bean" or "tiny blessing" or whatever. Oh no. A little more mean than those. ;)
I am just Not. A. Little. Ray. Of. Sunshine.
I *try* to be. I just got a massage yesterday and I started up yoga and stuff. I'm TRYING to think on the positive side... But gosh darn it. I just can't wait until this baby is born.
Even SN babies who scream all day (had one of those) and don't let you sleep and/or concerns about delivery don't compare to how much I just dislike the pregnant thing.
Don't get me wrong. I love my kids more than life. I have no concerns I'd bond to this one as well after birth. But the pregnant part? No thanks.
So yes. I'm impatient for January. Could you tell? :)
Nope! I need all the time I can get! We are moving houses, putting ours on the market and purchasing a new one. I packed most of my music and now I have a HUGE audition coming up in September/October that would be AMAZING if I get it - but I have to find some of my music that I already packed. argh. I wasn't expecting to get as far as I have in the audition process. so yes, I need all the time I can get! I also need to finalize how to cope with 3 within 3.5 years of each other.
