First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to Amy Sue and Momtoafireteam!!! Their LOs were born last week, all healthy! We should start a baby picture thread, similar to our belly picture thread to see all the newborns coming in!
Thought I'd start this weeks thread because I absolutely cannot sleep. Regardless, welcome to a new week! I don't know about you guys, but I am extremely thankful for a fresh start. Last week was quite a bit of a hitter for me on the emotional side of things. I've been feeling incredibly edgy and not very fun to be around, I'm afraid. I feel like I just want to go into hiding until this baby comes out. And heck, even for a few weeks after that. It's not physical ailment though- I feel fine. It's just emotional exhaustion and a readiness to start the next part of life. Anyone else feel this way?
I found out last week that my boy's brain is super healthy and the level II u/s was just basically for cautionary measures. I'm glad they found out that he was safe n' sound though... He looks SO chinese on the sonogram pictures, which comes from his father. I have a feeling that they are going to look very similar. I am praying and preparing myself not to be swayed by this... but the fact is, I miss his father very very much. And there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. It's pretty absurd to miss someone that single-handedly ruined my life and wanted to kill our son's... Maybe it's a pregnancy thing. Something emotionally triggering me to want to be in a traditional married relationship welcoming our new baby happily together. ERG. #frustratinglydepressing
On a positive note, it's also almost August! My apartment complex is letting my sister and I terminate our lease early to move into the bigger place in time for the baby. We'll move August 10th and I am extremely excited to start getting set up. Can you believe it's such a short time until our little ones are due?
How's everyone else doing this week?
