back

We're back from nowhere. It was very quiet, very relaxing, and I'm SO GLAD to be home. We even came home a day early. The bed there was terrible. Nothing like being away from home to make you appreciate it.

Talked to expectant mom again. She's starting to dilate and she thinks it's going to be this week. (!)

She also mentioned to me that she heard about other situations where expectant parents change their mind and that she and expectant dad have thought long and hard about this and they took several months to come to this decision. I think she wanted to reassure us that she's not going to change her mind. I tried to say that I understand why someone might change their mind and that it's their right, but I think she was trying to convey a message to us.

It's a little awkward to talk about these things, but it's good. I said I wanted pictures of her and expectant dad at the hospital so we could make a book for the baby and read it to him to tell him about his birth. She was okay with that.

I think we're going to work on setting up the room now. I think I can allow myself to do that. Expectant mom wants the room to be ready for the baby.

It could be this week.

Holy cr@p.

I'm glad you are back safe and sound. I've been thinking about you. Wow, to think your baby will be here in a week, very exciting and about 500 other emotions all at the same time. Good luck with the room and staying busy, here's hoping the time goes quick.

I'm glad you are back! I can't wait to hear more about the baby's room and the baby! I don't blame you for being guarded, but try to be able to enjoy it too. If baby comes next week, you won't have to wait long.

Holy cow - this week?! That's so exciting. I am also glad to hear that you are feeling like you can work on getting the nursery ready. The fact that she brought up the issue of NOT changing their minds is a great sign!

Whenever the baby arrives, you will do just fine. Get as much done now as possible - you'll be too busy later!
