I'm Freaking Out!

I just finished my appointment with my midwife.  She told me that she wants to see me every two weeks now until the middle of April and then she wants to see me every week.  

I was a completely stunned by this news, seeing as from time to time I still find myself forgetting that I'm even pregnant.  I'm uncomfortable and haven't slept well for weeks, but I just forget sometimes.  I mean, I'm still wearing pre-pregnancy clothes and unless I'm naked, the belly just kind of disappears.  I do have trouble putting on socks sometimes and painting my toes is getting rather difficult, but yet I still forget I have a man-child within my womb.  I've even been having Braxton Hicks for weeks now, daily!!! and still I forget.   Maybe this has something to do with it.  Whatever it is, it's completely downhill from here.  

Do you understand what I'm saying?  I have nothing ready.  We don't have a name or evena list of names that we are considering.  We only have a mental list of ones we hate.  

Oh for crying out loud.  

Babies need so much stuff and while we have everything from the first time around, most of that is pink.  So those things have to be replaced.  Some of our other "gear" is busted and in need of replacement.  (Give me a break--we've been using it for 4 years!)  I have crib bedding--That's about all I have, but since we'll be using the cradle for the first six months or so, there is no satisfaction in having the crib bedding.  

And there's still so much to do!!!!

I am seriously freaking out!


  1. I totally here you on the forgetful thing. I still forget things and my babies will be 3 months old on Saturday. As for the getting everything ready, don't stress it, you'll get it done. Take care.

  2. Thanks for your encouragement Amy! You of all people can relate to this 10 times over! I must sound like such a dork, whining on about this, but for some reason I feel completely overwhelmed by this today. Maybe it's because I've slept a total of 12 hours this last week. Every time I lay my head down to take a nap, my email box fills with urgent messages, or my phone rings, or my daughter needs something, or my husband needs something (which has been the case today). How does Mommy take a Mental Health Day?
