Totally Off Topic (Preg. mentioned)

My May board is having its first babies today. :eek: It's making me realize how close I'm getting! I've been trying to remain blissfully ignorant to the upcoming challenges of raising a newborn and a toddler, but that's getting harder and harder as the days go by!

Oh yeah!!! It was right about this time in January (I think the 24th) when the first baby was born for my board... It was special circumstances because the mama had been diagnosed with breast cancer while she was pregnant, she they delivered her early so they could do her surgery. But STILL... It was a definite eye-opener!!

I remember being terrified at this point, when I suddenly realized I was going to have two babies and no one was going to be around to help because DH was stuck on some big project and working 10-12 hours a day. You can do it. Smile You're a tough mama, and a very good one to boot. :bigarmhug:

Well, the labor may be a false alarm but holy cow, what an eye opener nonetheless! :eek:

I hear ya girl! I feel like half my April board has already had their babies - I'm starting to freak out a little now. With DS & DD, DH had the entire summer off because he was teaching, so I had lots of help. This time, he's got a different job, so he'll only be able to take off maybe a week. AND DS is in preschool, so I'll have to drag all 3 kids out to take him to school 4 days a week. :eek: Not to mention deal with an extremely clingy, jealous almost 2 y/o while trying to nurse/pump... I can't think about it right now!!! Lol
