Last weekend

I have entered a weird phase where I don't feel very excited. That is not quite the right way to say what I feel. But my sister came over today to see the finished nursery and she was all giddy and I couldn't go there. I think I've moved to a feeling of "this is really happening-OMG-my life is going to totally change-are we ready for this-freaking out." I am not sure how I am going to get through the next few days.

Here are my updates. I'm not sure what to make of the breastfeeding progress. After a few days of having a drop or two come out, I'm all dried up. AF came and that seemed to end everything. So, I don't know what to think now about how that will go.

We told our family not to come for the first week. My mom and E's parents will come out to the birth state about the time the revocation period will be done. I feel much better about this arrangement and my mom seemed OK with it.

Thanks for all your thoughts on cars and carseats. A new car is not in our near future, but we'll see how frustrated I get with this car. I am actually the type of person who learns to deal with inconveniences, so Simon will probably stick around a little longer.

Because I'm  a glutton for punishment, I still plan on working on Monday! But that will be my last day. I will be mostly spending the day meeting with people to tell them about all the work that will be dumped on them.


  1. I'm pondering your breastfeeding situation, and I'm wondering about the arrival of AF. I wonder if you're experiencing kind of a reverse of what happened to me when I stopped bf-ing... AF started almost right away. I wonder about the connected hormones.

    I'm glad you were able to work out the details with your family. And I hope that you're able to focus at work tomorrow. :)

    I'm sure the giddy excitement will return. This is a HUGE step in your life, of course things will seem a bit overwhelming occassionally.

  2. Every month (for 19months!) my supply has dropped just before and during AF. I don't know if it's just an inducing thing or if it happens to all bf-ing moms but maybe they don't notice it because their supplies are a lot bigger?

    Right after we met with the kid's birth family for the first time (which ended up being less than a week before he was born), hubby hit the phase you're in. I think it was part shock, part OMG-is-this-really-happening-for-real-this-time-are-we-actually-going-to-finally-be-parents, part oh crap, part trying to stay a little disconnected in case it didn't actually happen. You will be excited when the time is right. Just try to be a little gentle with yourself :)

  3. Oh yes, and my supply always picks back up after AF is over.
