O.K….so i’ve been slacking on posting to this thing…..but here it is..my week 24 picture (i’m losing track of where i’m actually at….but I believe I have 107 days to go=)
It dawned on me just the other night that I was really going to have a baby. Yes, I know, of course Karen, you are having a baby….you told us all that a few months ago, you started this blog, your belly is getting inexplicably large.
But you know when you finish your Christmas shopping and filling out and sending all your cards you think to yourself, next year I’m going to get ready for Christmas way ahead of time and not put myself through this stress again? And then July comes around and you think, I should really start getting ready for Christmas soon…you sorta pat yourself on the back for even thinking of it so early, but it’s WAY too early to start in July, so August goes by and you think end of October….then all of a sudden it’s December 15th and you haven’t done or gotten ready for anything and the reality hits you that, “oh my god, it’s really Christmas, it’s here!” I think that’s what this is like.
When you find out 7 or 8 months seems so far away. Heck, I’m not having a baby till “next year”. I’ve been doing all the organizational things….getting things done, making lists, balancing budgets, picking names….but every once in awhile it hits me….we will actually have a baby. In about 100 and some odd days a little living being is going to come out of my body. WHOOOAAA.
Don’t worry, I’m not like one of those stories you hear about every once in awhile of the woman who shows up at the E.R. not knowing why she feels so sick and it turns out she’s in labor….*and she didn’t even know…..* GIVE ME A BREAK! liar….it’s a river in Egypt called deNial….or your mentally unstable…..or you did/do a LOT of drugs….I’m not her…..just every once in awhile I unplug from “do mode” and think about “be mode”….it can be a bit overwhelming =)
