Just hanging out



Waiting for the next five weeks to fly by! Thats right, I am now 35 weeks and 3 days. I am in total shock and disbelief. I sometimes think I am ready, prepared even. Then someone asks, "Well what are you doing about ___?" Then I go into panic mode! No my freezer isn't filled with healthy food options. NO I have no idea whether to put the diaper pail upstairs or down stairs. Where are we going to take naps? Wherever I plunk my head and Stickie is happy! Don't get me wrong, I totally appreciate all of the helpful hints. However, it just reminds me of all the things I SHOULD get done before he arrives. I thought I'd be so much more prepared at this point in the game. TRYING NOT TO STRESS...

I've still got 50+ more thank you notes to write, Praise God, I've already written 50! We were so blessed with all our loot from friends and family that love us so and are helping us welcome this miracle into the world. My carpal tunnel is acting up, BIG TIME, and I have lots of time where I have no feeling in my finger tips except for stinging pain in my joints. I think its over working my hands. I've had CT for years, being preggo has exacerbated it. Also, my job is nothing but playing with stuff using my hands, all day very repetitive.
I'm slowing down these days. I'm just doing what I can do. I'm not getting rushed, because my preggo brain and dysfunction with my hands proves to be a volatile mix when playing in the lab!

Going to a breast feeding class tomorrow at the hospital. Hopefully, I'll get a clue as to what to expect from that. The only thing I know is that my niece sent me some goo to put on the girls, and it looks pretty funky! Lots of learning to do!

Anyone got any advice for the new Mom that knows nothing about what to expect? I promise you, this still, at times, feels like a dream.
