Moments of Realization

I had one of those this morning. And those of you who have been reading since the beginning may giggle at it. After I had it, I did. But it also scared me a bit.

Last Friday, my therapist and I were working out our next few appointments. She commented that Thanksgiving is not that far away. At the time, it didn’t hit home.

Well it did this morning while I was taking a shower. And this is how the realization started.

Today is Halloween, the end of October.

Which means November starts tomorrow.

Which means Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away.

Which means Christmas is less than a month away from Thanksgiving.

Which means that thirteen days after Christmas is when Cameron is “due”.




I totally freaked out – fortunately it didn’t develop into a panic attack, no tightness in the chest, no shallow breathing – but the realization was well, surreal. Nevermind that I’ve been blogging the pregnancy, going to OB appts, that Cameron’s been kicking up a storm. So yes, I have been “aware” that I am pregnant but it hadn’t hit home until now that delivery is RIGHT around the corner. Wow.

I’m looking forward to having a new baby in the house, really, I am. And so are the girls. Charlotte’s even taken to patting my belly and smiling. I just can’t BELIEVE he’ll be here in two months!
