I know! DS is 7-1/2. He's asking to drive the car. He's reading chapter books. He gets himself dressed, makes his own snacks, and gets himself ready for bed. And I'm going to have a helpless newborn at age 38?!
OTOH, I want her here now
. I know I've got another 4 weeks and she only weighs 5 pounds right now (according to yesterday's u/s), but I wish she were here. I am sick of being pg. It's been much harder this time, and since we started IVF more than a year ago -- and started thinking about it 2 years ago -- I feel like I have been waiting for way
more than 9 months. I want to see her and get on with raising her.
On the other other hand (yes, I have three hands!), the house is not quite ready. I had a panic the other night at about 4 am over how I have to organize the pantry, clean up my art studio space, organize the bookshelves, and clean out the giant basket of magazines and catalogs that have been sitting there for 2 years! I actually did tackle that basket yesterday, and put most of it in the recycling bin. The rest went into IKEA cardboard magazine files. At least I can cross one thing off the list and maybe sleep now!
