What is Happening to ME???

Okay, I was a little bitchy in my last post. I have just been a little bitchy all the way around. I am so tense that my entire back is one big knotted mass of muscle--damn the weight lifting--I cannot sleep. I was awake all night thinking about the baby's room and where things were going to go and how I am going to get things done before the we leave to pick up the baby? Is this normal new mom stuff or am I going slightly crazy? I am not opposed to going crazy, as I think there are plenty of happy crazy people...I have never been so anxious and stressed in my life. I can't make myself relax. I have tried my yoga--which I love and I can't focus. I don't know if I can make it 6-7 weeks like this--hubby may very well kill me if that is the case.

Okay. I have some awesome baby stuff and I didn't mean to sound petty before. But as I have never really had a baby and not a lot of my friends have babies so I haven't been to a lot of baby showers, I just assumed people would buy you things that you registered for. If I knew the reality that people like to buy baby stuff I wouldn't have bothered with registering for much. Our baby will be clean as I now have 3 bath tubs for the little guy. But I am very fortunate that Noah has so many people who are waiting impatiently for him to come home. It was a great and moving experience. I am glad that I don't have to have another one, as it is hard to socialize with that many people. Hubby's work is having a shower for us at his work in a couple weeks and that will be really nice as many of his friends from work couldn't make our shower as they were out of town, etc.

Okay. I just need to talk about my puppies and how awesome they are.

Hubby's cousin and her family stopped by yesterday to drop off a bunch of baby stuff for us that they no longer need. They have 2 little kids--ages 5 and 3 and they are a bundle of engery. Our pups were awesome they let the loud kids run all around the house and hug them and pet them and the dogs just laid there and lapped up the attention. The kids laid on the floor with the dogs and put their heads on their bellies, etc and the dogs were so well behaved and weren't scared or anything. I have absolutely no worries about how our puppies are going to behave with the baby and as he grows up. That is one thing I don't have to worry about anymore so how come my shoulders and back are a complete mess and I have a headache that would cripple the strongest person. UGHHHH!!!!

I'm proud of your doggies, too! Mine go in their kennel when kids are around, if that tells you anything about how well behaved they are, but we're working on it. They do, however, enjoy the fact that the high chair ends up like an all you can eat buffet once the kid is that why kids and dogs get along? Free food?

You're not going crazy. It is all normal new mom stuff, and once you have the most adorable child ever in your arms, it won't matter anymore. But I know that news doesn't make right now any easier.

I don't think my husband is going to last for much longer either, but not because he's going to kill me. More than likely, it would be the other way around. My husband has no shame (or love for his genitals) and has recently taken to making remarks akin to "It's almost like you're pregnant again." Are you kidding me? I know he's excited, so why isn't he sharing the stress (and subsequent bitchiness), too?

But at least you don't have to worry about your poochies and your new munchkin! That's really great news. I wish I could say that our dog was as well behaved around new kids...
