Nervousness and excitement

Grrrrr. I'm getting nervous again for my u/s tomorrow. I hate that feeling! How nice would it be to just enjoy this without so much anxiety....

But I'm trying real hard to think positive! I went to Barnes & Nobles yesterday and spent a lot of time in the pregnancy section. Honestly, I felt a little like an impostor. But I did buy a few interesting books. Aside from the "basics" (What to Expect, Girlfriend's Guide, etc. that I had already downloaded on my Kindle), I found a book called the Working Woman's Guide to Pregnancy, and another about high risk pregnancy. I'm hoping these will be very helpful and might be a little more relevant for me than the typical pregnancy books.

And then the hopeful / tempting fate side of me bought two scrapbook, keepsake type books, where you can write down your thoughts, pictures, ultrasound pics, etc. I love the idea of scrapbooking. In fact, 2 years ago, I went out and bought all kinds of scrapbooking "stuff". I don't want to even think about how much I spent, I had to have all the cool tools! And do you know how many books I've put together??? You guessed it. Zero. I do well with creating really nice photo books on Shutterfly, but traditional scrapbooking, not so much. So maybe I'll turn over a new leaf here, who knows?

Well, when I got home, you know what DH said after he looked at all the books and laughed? He said to me, "You know how when I go to Home Depot, I always peek my head into the Petco next door and look at the puppies? Well, yesterday, when I went to the Depot, I walked around Babies R Us for an over an hour." And he showed me the two books he had purchased - pregnancy from a man's perspective, and signing for babies.

Awwwww! :)

  1. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow's u/s. Just breathe and read your books! It sounds like a fun shopping trip. And I LOVE that your hubby did the same. How very cool that he thought to pick up a baby sign language book!
