I’m busy at work all week, I usually have plans that keep me busy over the weekend but Sunday’s are down time in our world and this usually means hubby is playing catch up with the sports and I’m catching up on fb/emails/reading and internetting.
This is such a Sunday, I’m reading birth stories, googling about seeking help for fertilty issues and looking up baby names. FML!
I’m still waiting for my period but knowing we now have a doctor on side has done wonders for my pma. Since I wanted to take the pressure off us while we’re getting results about why my periods have gone awol, we agreed to push TTC back to the summer – July onwards, but even so my desire to start a family isn’t going away and quiet days are just making July feel like it’s 10000 years away. I know that’s almost a rediculous thing to say as I can’t believe it’s already MARCH! but still.
I feel excited and a bit disappointed all at the same time. I want to do this now and it’s just not the right time.

Step away from the computer. Go do “me” things that you might not have time for with a newborn. The time will come!!

@Soon2BeeMrsG: TTC (or waiting to TTC) can be an all-consuming endeavor. I think it’s fine to indulge it in small amounts, but I think if you allow yourself to become obsessed and then TTC is a struggle, it could be more detrimental to your mental health/everyday functioning. Maybe give yourself an hour or two on Sundays and otherwise, focus your internetting (yeah, it’s a new word) on something else–a household project? Cooking? Baking?
Although I’m totally over-joyed and thankful that I’m a mom now (3 months), there are things I miss about not being a mom. Simple things like being able to run to the grocery store without bundling him up and taking him with me, or even leaving him with Darling Husband, but worrying about feeding him. These in NO WAY outweigh being a mom, but do try to enjoy the time you have now. Drink wine, eat sushi, do projects, whatever you can. But do give yourself some time to research–it’s fun!

@Soon2BeeMrsG: Every day is “I want a baby day” in my house! I’ve got to wait til October – no idea how that is going to happen!!! Luckily Uni goes back this week – so fingers crossed that keeps me distracted at least for a few weeks! October should be here in no time, between work and Uni! I’m sure I could write a great essay on which pram I want to buy and why – not too sure about those theories of development and learning though, will that be a problem with my degree? hehe
