Scruff, I hear you.
I have ADD (diagnosed and treated) and the idea of a 40+ week pregnancy always sounded... interminable to me! I am NOT a patient person. Add to that the fact that I had a m/c with my first pregnancy and then immediately got pregnant again, by the time I have this baby, I will have been pregnant for literally a full calendar year (minus 6 weeks in-between pregnancies)! Actually, a little longer than a year.
And I will say that I did want to things to hurry up for the first 12-16 weeks-- but more because I wanted to get to a place in pregnancy where m/c was a lot less likely. Now... I wouldn't say that I am quite freaking out about only having 12-14 weeks to go (I'm almost 28). Buuuuuut... Well, as long as I'm not feeling like death, let's just say I'd rather babe come at 41-42 weeks! And if he/she comes at 39 or less-- yikes!
I feel like I have tons to do, even though I've already done tons. I am not feeling so much rushed in terms of baby stuff (been relatively prepared on that front, considering it's my first and my plans are super-ambitious-- BFing, CDing, ECing, etc.) But-- *gulp*-- DH just gave his 1-month notice at work and he will really, actually, for realz be joining me in my business starting January.
OOH, WOOOO HOOOO!!!! "The Plan" (to be dual/equal WAHP) is coming together!
OTOH, OMFG! There's a lot to prep for! Money (theoretically) shouldn't actually be loads tighter, because his help will earn us more via the business. And his previous income wasn't terribly steady, b/c it was also sales-/commission-based, so it's not like we'll be loads less "secure." But it kinda feels like pressure on me, b/c it's "my" business. Plus, I have to train him! And we're launching another arm of the business, so... It's just a lot!
It is weird, too, to really think of myself as someone's mom. I mean... for example, a couple days ago, I was looking at this kinda glamorous photo of DH and me and thinking of my kid pointing at it and saying, "Mommy?" And me replying, "Yep, that's Mommy!" And it kinda hit me! It's nothing for me to think of Buko calling DH "Daddy" or calling my mom "Grandma" (this is her first grandchild), etc., but me? Mommy? OMG!
