Sometimes people say that men experience "sympathy" symptoms...gaining sympathy weight, feeling sympathy sickness, etc. However, I think that I may be experiencing the reverse...I am turning into my husband!!
Recently my Pregnancy Brain has disappeared along with my entire Type B personality, and I suddenly don't know who I am anymore! Some call it Nesting, and if that's truly the case, then Gary has 4.5 more months of organized bliss! It's true. I know it's hard to believe, but recently I have been not only making lists, but actually accomplishing things on them! My desk AND the freelancer's desk at work are completely clean. It's driving me crazy that the entire contents of our kitchen cabinets is collected on the dining room table to escape the Crazy Ants. Laundry in the dryer must be folded, clean dishes in the sink barely have time to dry, etc. The list goes on and on.
Now there are some of you who may say, "What's the big deal? You're SUPPOSED to keep your desk clean." Well...you must not know me. :) I will take the small victories. And hopefully establish some great habits over the duration of my pregnancy.
Here's to productivity!
Also on a pregnancy-related note, I must say that feeling the baby move is one of my favorite parts of the day. I don't know how to describe it, but it's just so awesome to feel it - it's like the baby's saying, "Hey Mom! I'm down here! Don't forget about me!" The movements are still very sporadic, but Gary was finally able to feel it this week for the first time...so cool. We just can't WAIT to meet this little person!
