my mind is just not at work. I am known to go through phases with this even when not pg, but now that I am pg it is worse. I hope I won't get fired
All I keep thinking about is baby stuff, or I just can't concentrate, or I just feel tired. I have promiced my boss something is gonna be finished tomorrow, and it is not done yet. So I better get my ass away from MDC and go get some work done.
I have started feeling the baby move just a little over a week ago, but it is quite notisable. I wonder if I just wasn't paying enough attantion earlier. I don't really feel any flutters or butterflies. I feel someone rolling over inside of me, or gentle "kicks". Am I just preoccupied with other stuff and not notice the butteflies etc?
It was nice that on the morning of Dec 31st dh got himself a nice NY present - he had felt the baby move with his hand on my tummy! That was awesome. But for the most part I feel the movements myself, put a hand on my tummy and ... nothing. *lol* As if teh baby doesn't want to be kicking my hand. *lol*
We haven't bought any baby stuff yet. Heck. we haven't even strated thinking of what items we would and would not want/need for the baby (and this is our first). had a smal names chat last night. We both have no real favourites as far as names go and have no clue what we'd want the baby called. That is gonna be real hard.
I have stopped my search for a hb mw for a while, but I am back at it beginning today. It was a combination of the holidays as well as me just not feeling the reality of this pg. I am really hoping to make a decision soon. I'm almost half way there and I need to start seeing someone who will be there for the birth. It frustrated me that several midwives never returned my phone calls at all. Not even to say "unfortunately, I don't take any new clients right now" or anything to that extent. So I have left a couple more messages today, but how long should I wait for them to call me back? is a week enough?
Cristina, I hope everything works out with your dh and also that your problems don't come back.
Serenity, I am lost for words.
AmiBeth, get better soon!
Tish, hoping your MIL situation gets better.
annakiss, that must have been so exciting for your dh. it was for mine!
I also started taking pics every week, but all my 19 week pics suck. ;(
