Well I have finally made it to week 16 and I am HUGE!!!! So I needed a break from work on Tuesday and decided to look up some baby stuff that I thought would be fun to read! Well I came upon some checklists and I thought, "Oh I love checklists! Let's see what I can start getting ready for!" So I first started with the daddy list, so I was going through it and thought, "ok I can help Luke with all of this, except what is the birth plan?" Every list I looked at it mentioned some sort of birth plan but never said what it was...anyone?? What the heck is that? Ok then I look at the hospital bag checklist and see I need to bring something to wear that I wouldn't mind throwing away later....had no idea, ok...then I need to bring some breast pads, forgot about those, ok....bring a book to read to pass the time during labor! what?? Am I really going to be reading??? Ok so at this point I start realizing that human I am growing inside me HAS TO COME OUT! I can't leave the hospital without that happening! Little freaked out...So then I move onto the baby proofing checklist....for those of you who have been to my house know that our house is nowhere near baby proof...how is that ever going to happen??? Danger everywhere! Help! Then it says I need to put together a few first aid kits to put basically anywhere I will be going. It says I should even put one in my diaper bag, so the first aid kit has about 40 items in it, but at the same time it says you don't need to pack the whole nursery either, but wont the first aid kit take up the whole diaper bag anyway?? Then when I started reading about what stuff I need for the nursery I realized I will actually be taking care of this child and that's when I ended the reading of the checklists! I was feeling so overwhelmed! It was a lot to take in all at once! Because at that point I really realized I have no idea how to be a mom! Any books I should be reading? Any advice for the hospital visit??? I need all the help I can get! Oh and I need to work out really bad, any advice there would be awesome too!
Anyway, just thought I would share that with everyone. It helps to get it out all my new fears and worries out in the open!
