Nesting Bits and Pieces
So this nesting thing is the real deal. The first trimester was very much sickness and exhaustion, and while that hasn't really tapered off, the beginning of my second trimester has brought fresh bursts of energy at times and a need to get things done. I'm not really showing yet so I think when we found out that we were having a little boy it made things much more real. Now my thoughts are filled with, "Is our house warm enough? Is it cool enough? Is it clean enough? Is it safe enough?" There's a never ending list rolling around in my brain questioning our validity as parents.
While I'm giving in to most of those thoughts and preparing our house as best I can, I'm constantly reminding myself how lucky I am to be doing this and trying to enjoy every minute.
