Don't Count Your Eggs

Hi Anita-- Sorry Thanksgiving seemed a bit rough. It's so hard. I think it's ridiculously that anyone, regardless of age, be called selfish for wanting to do one of the most selfless things--give another person life and raise and love them. Don't let that type of ignorant hate get to you. Stay on track with your own goals. Life doesn't always go how we planned, hoped or expected. So it's up to us to do our best to figure out a way to do the best we can with what we have to find happiness and love. Wishing you all the best! A Few Good Eggs--congrats to you! I have P week envy--34 sounds so close! I have seen that book actually, it's very cure. There's another Momo book I saw about a monkey too--I might have to give this poor girl a real name one day!

A Few Good Eggs

Also, I know this Momo is different (obviously! It is a dog), but I saw this book and immediately thought of you!

A Few Good Eggs

Maya, I totally relate. I'll be 34 weeks on Friday and only this week have we ordered a crib, dresser, etc. and a few of the "necessities." I still feel conflicted about preparing in advance at all, but the urge to nest and purchase has taken over... as I suspect it will for you, too.

Congratulations on 23 weeks!


Hi Maya,
Although not exactly in your shoes, I could totally relate to your emotions. We had a thanksgiving get-together at our place, and one friend with a 8 month old daughter and another one 7 months pregnant was among the guests we had. Another friend had her second daughter in NJ, and we were looking at pictures on face-book. My mind kept wandering to how it must feel to be pregnant, and felt sorry for myself. As I'm already forty, I also sometimes feel embarrassed about it, and in spite of being a highly accomplished professional I feel like I don't really have much to speak of. And its not that I was trying to put off having kids in favor of my career! I also think about all the time that if we eventually have a baby, would the baby feel bad about having an older kid. I saw this show on TV once where they were debating over if older women should have a baby, and some were even calling (including a daughter of an older mom) women who had babies late as "self-centered". People have weird logics but I wish they would not argue over such things and hurt people on IF island who are enough hurt by their circumstances as it is. I remember that even as a young girl, I really wanted to have kids. I always thought that I'll have a baby soon as I get married. It all feels so naïve now. I feel so sad about not having a baby with my husband, the man I love and respect the most and who in my eyes is perfect in everyway.
Congratulations on completing 23 weeks. It seems like only yesterday that I saw first U/S picture of Momo. Wish her all the health in the world, and all the happiness to the three of you.
