Yesterday we had our nearly half way doctor visit. I am floored that we are nearly half way! It's so exciting to think about meeting the new baby, but I am seriously not ready yet in an organizational sense. I'm also worried that the big girl is not ready yet either. When I got pregnant I kept telling myself that she would have nine whole months to get older and more mature, but now that time is cut in half and she still seems like a baby to me. I'm sure we'll figure it out (people do!) but there will certainly be some logistics to overcome.
That being said, the doctor declared us both to be in good health. The baby is measuring as it should, and everything is still locked up tight. It is strange to go to those appointments the second time around. When the whole thing was new I used to go in with a list full of questions (what is that jabbing pain when I roll over?), but now we spend much more of the time just chatting. May the second half be as unremarkable as the first.
