I had another prenatal visit yesterday, and the doc says time is closing in!! 1 cm dialated could mean that baby is very close to making her arrival. I technically have about 3 1/2 weeks until my due date, and I was really planning on making it til December, but now I'm seeing that there is a possibility that we may be getting a November baby! Ooooh, this is exciting for sure! But, at the same time, I can't help but race into panic mode! There's so much left to do: paint nursery, set up furniture in nursery, organize "stuff" for baby, buy a sweet "going home" outfit, finish Christmas shopping, prepare material for my substitute, finish grading my students' term papers & prepare final exams, photos for Christmas cards, install carseat for baby, buy a baby book, pack bag for hospital... Oh, and, PICK A NAME!!!!!!! I really wanted to have some things monogrammed, but, um, I guess that is out of the question since we don't have a name.
OH my, the "to do" list could go on and on. Although I have honestly tried to stay on top of things, I'm learning that it is MUCH more difficult the second time around. I don't want to take anything away from Jax, so I've been trying to do it all, but really nothing is complete and what I'd call "ready". Ugh. Not a good feeling.
I know I could go for a while at 1 cm... but on the other hand, I may not! If you see me in the next few days, just remember how anal I am about the "little things" and you'll understand why I look so tired and STRESSED! Prayers, please! I know it will all work out... but I can't help but worry about it in the meantime. Especially the name... what are we gonna do if we can't come up with a name in time? Pressure, pressure. I don't like pressured decisions. But, it seems, that's what we're gonna get - could someone just tell Josh to just say "ok"? That would solve the name debate right then and there. Maybe instead of asking everyone what we should name the baby, maybe we should just create a poll to see who you think should "give in" - me or Josh !!! Yeah, I think I could come up with a pretty good campaign. Oh, wait, I don't have time to campaign...
And he is on the move!
