11 weeks to go!

Wow. 29 weeks today. 29 weeks. 11 weeks to go. July seems far away, but 11 weeks doesn't seem very long at all. 11 more weekends. And they are so booked:

1: trip to Boston
2: painting the nursery
3: local Pride festival
4: Mother's Day/our wedding anniversary
5: Unsure - we were planning to have a babymoon weekend and then our baby shower. Now? TBA.
6: No plans (yet) but it's Memorial Day weekend

And then we're into June! Holy crap!

I have to say that I absolutely love being pregnant. I do. I love it. I love the round belly, and I love the baby movement, and I love just knowing there is a baby in there. I love the idea of being pregnant, I love that we're having a baby together, and I love walking around with my belly sticking out. What I don't like is the heartburn. The heartburn and the emotional rollercoaster. All I do is cry. Well, get heartburn and cry. I probably cry about heartburn. I cry about everything.

This week's crying topics have included: the shower mess, flooding in our basement, having to spend a bunch of money as a result of flooding in the basement, considering cancelling the babymoon due to having to spend a bunch of money as a result of flooding in the basement, thoughtless comments made by friends, thoughtless comments made by people who are no longer friends, having recently moved and not having a lot of friends, and Jen's telling me that she still thinks about us having twins. Oh there are more things than that, but really, do you need to know all of them?

Let me know and I will start keeping a log. A very depressing log.

I'm so with you on the heartburn and crying - I seem to cry at absolutely nothing these days - and the heartburn just drives me NUTS!!!! But - wouldn't have it any other way eh?

I am probably crying at nothing too most of the time, but it doesn't seem like nothing at the time! It feels like I am taking Clomid every day for the last 7 months! Augh!

It wouldn't bother me so much if I didn't then feel guilty that all of the crying was hurting the baby. If it was just me being stupid by crying I guess I wouldn't mind as much. But the heartburn? Yeah, I can handle it for 11 more weeks when I get to see my baby!! :)

The crying is not hurting the baby. I don't care what anyone says. Don't add guilt or it will be something else to cry about!

I'm with you on the hideous heartburn. All day every day, pretty much. Bleh.

I can't believe we're going to miss "local" Pride this year. It's my favoriteist one, ever.

I'm sorry this past week has been craptastic. I'm trying to uh, make some other things less so. For true.

I'm glad crying is "normal," but it doesn't seem normal for me. I was never much of a crier, now I can't turn off the waterworks!
