Today I started our registry at Babies R Us. I took my good friend Lori with me. She has two kids and knows all about this baby stuff. Without her, I’d have been standing in the middle of that store, wielding a scanner, completely clueless.
I don’t know anything about this new adventure and my nerves are kicking in. She’s not even due here for another 3 months, and it feels like I don’t have enough time to do what I need to do. Whatever that is. LOL
We need to find daycare. We need to get her room set up. I need to take the hospital tour, and sign up for classes on Lamaze and breast feeding.
As I watched the salesperson demonstrate this three in one stroller/baby seat carrier, I honestly did not hear half of what she said. I just kept thinking, “how the hell am I going to do this?!?” (by the way, why does it seem that you need to be a nuclear physicist to figure out some of these contraptions?!?) I looked at all manner of bottles and playpens and bouncers and thought, I don’t know anything about this world.
So, anywho…that’s how I’m feeling. For better or for worse. My feet hurt, my back hurts, and I pee every 5 minutes. I wouldn’t change it for the world, though. I am enjoying my pregnancy, and I just want to be the best mommy I can be for this little girl.
