I'm definitely not going crazy yet....I think I'm more in denial of the fact that WE'RE HAVING A BABY IN THE NEXT MONTH. I can't seem to believe that our life will change that much!
You think that over the last 8 1/2 months I would have had plenty of time to let that sink in.
Each time we get together with family or if someone asks me how far along I am, they are shocked when I tell them I"m due in 4 weeks. I've been told that I look somewhere to be between my 6th and 7th month. While that is flattering, it can also be a little discouraging b/c inevitably the follow-up response from them is "Oh, you'll be at least two or three weeks past your due date b/c your'e so small!".
: I just smile politely, nod, and then in the back of my head say "Little Baby, don't listen to any of these people...you come when you're ready to come." And I cringe if someone asks me my due date b/c I'm so tired of hearing all of the negative stories or comments alone the lines of "I remember my last month of pregnancy...I was miserable! Swollen feet! Back pain! No sleep! And that's nothing compared to what life is like when the baby comes....blah blah blah."
So, I guess I"m kind of content to have the little one stick it out a little while longer (I"ll be 37 weeks this weekend, which also is the go ahead time for giving birth at home in NJ). Although, part of me is impatient to meet this little one inside of me!
