I am freaking out...
This will be a pregnancy freak-out post...please feel free to skip if you would like.
Today is the first day of the third trimester for me. Once we got past 10 weeks I knew it would be a strong possibility we'd get here but it always seemed so far away. Now it's here and I am freaking out. Yesterday I had two people at work ask me if we had the nursery set up yet. Um, nope...it's still a guest room, complete with clean laundry that needs to be put away. We worked on the closet a few weeks ago so we felt good that we had started but nothing has happened since then. We have plans of stripping away the popcorn ceiling and taking down the paneling; then we'd like to hire someone to come in and hang the sheetrock for us. We've received two recommendations for people to do the sheetrock work...J has called both of them...we actually met one of them in person when we went to the rodeo over Memorial Day weekend. Have either of them called back? Of course not!! Now I am looking on Craigs.list but do really trust someone from CL to come in to do the work?
Next freak out was me looking at the child birth class schedule...there are 6 seats left for the class on Aug. 8th...next class after that is Sept. 5th...I feel like if we wait til then we are pushing it. We could try for July but that would be on J's birthday.
I also let myself panic this morning about my next two doctors appointments...they are scheduled for July 12 and Aug 2nd. Everything I read online this morning seemed to indicate that I should be at bi-monthly appointments now. Hmm...do I ask about it at my appt next week or do I email now?
I've been having a hard time falling asleep at night thinking about all that needs to be done. The smallest things can cause panic to set in. The other night I started to get upset because we did not have any cheese in the house. Really, cheese?? Jason pointed out that we did have cheese but to me it was not the right kind. What if I wanted some to eat (without crackers of course because of the carbs! lol)...
Sorry for the super panicky post but that's where I am at right now...hoping to calm down any moment now.
I think I'll start a to-do list for our long weekend. Our goal for the weekend is to focus on the baby's room and to find ways to keep me from freaking out over what needs to be done.
