Two Months

My due date is exactly two months from today! Holy Crap! Granted the odds of him coming on his own on his actual due date aren't very high but it's still amazing to me that in approximately 60 days or so I'm going to have a little person to take care of. I just hope that this little guy isn't impatient like his father and decide to be born two months early ---Kristian was supposed to be a Dec. baby but decided he liked the month of October better for his birthday.

The first 20 weeks seemed to drag, dealing with the all day nausea of the first trimester than not-so-patiently waiting to find out the gender. But every since then time has been flying by at warp speed and the weekends are over before they even start.

My nesting instinct has kicked into full gear. Even though we plan to keep the baby in our room at first I have this overwhelming desire to get his nursery done NOW. After all once he's here we won't have the time or energy to work on the nursery so I'd rather have it set and ready to go. Kristian doesn't seem to understand this urgency I have and why I get annoyed when he won't help me with something the second I ask for his help.

Unfortunately I do need his help with a lot of things, it's getting harder and harder everyday to complete even the smallest tasks. I have this growing to-do list but lack the energy to actually do anything on the list. And this constant backache makes any kind of extended physical activity nearly impossible.

As excited as I am to meet and snuggle this little dude I plan on enjoying these last two months or so of this pregnancy as best I can, after all who knows if or when I'll get to do this again.

Wow -- two months will go by so fast! I can definitely see what you mean about getting the nursery ready now, while you still have the time and energy.

2 months? Wow! I feel like you just announced you were pregnant!

I remember how fast that 2nd and early 3rd Tri went. Then I hit 36 weeks and it was as if time stood still.

I totally feel you about things getting harder and harder each day... i'm still trying to get used to my circumference and realizing i can't fit through small spaces anymore, but i'm having fun with it! You are looking great btw :)

Very exciting! I actually wanted Rob's help less and less because I was convinced I could do a better job of everything. I only relented in letting the father-in-law put the furniture together and my dad do shelving and the wallpaper. That said, I walked quite a bit and stayed very active to the end, had a busy weekend leading up to the birth, too.

You can do it and can't wait to see pictures of the little guy.
