Feeling Better, Feeling Productive

Thank you, everyone, so much for your thoughts, support and information about short femur measurements and "soft indicators." You guys are great at talking a person off the ledge. Not that I was at the jumping point, but -- sheesh -- I was definitely caught off guard with news I didn't expect and angry as hell at those who knew but elected not to tell me. Your comments were soothing, reassuring and exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you.

Also helpful is that I spent a good deal of the weekend doing more cleaning! My DH was out of town visiting his mom (along with Wacky P and her clan - thank you very much but I think I'll stay home), so I had the house to myself. I opened cupboards and went crazy. Bags and bags of trash went out. Documents shredded. Linens reorganized. Rarely used items consolidated and put out of the way. I hung a shelf. I emptied a desk that we plan to get rid of. I washed and wiped my heart out. In between it all I stopped to make a nice pot of home made soup.

Yes, I am beginning to feel the nesting bug bite at my heels. And it feels so good.

So glad you are nesting and calmed now. God created the perfect baby for you. You are being strong and I feel everything is just fine with your sweet boy! HUGS!

:) Nesting is a very nice sign and I am glad you are feeling better. Did you read the week 23 progress at the right? Your boy can most likely recognize voices now. How cool!!!

I love having freshly cleaned cabinets, all de-cluttered and un-dusty! Glad you didn't have to deal with WP this weekend, that would have been just too much stress...

Oh I'm sorry I've been out of touch! When is your next u/s?? I hope it was just one of those things and you are reassured when you get the new results. Of course, this never ends now until you die - worry about the baby/child/grownup will consume your life (congratulations!).

So glad your house is all orderly. REALLY must get preggo so my house gets a good cleaning! Ha. Maybe now that I'm not at death's door I will rouse myself a bit before guests arrive next week for T-day. Take care!
