After the first kid, did you lose interest in pregnancy books and info?
With DD, ten years ago, I pored over two or three pregnancy books. I read everything. I wanted to make sure I was doing it all right.
This time. Meh. I just want the prize out of the machine in 7 months.
I tried reading an updated version of What to Expect When You're Expecting. But it was as boring as the incredibly lame and inaccurate version ten years ago. I threw out the other two books. Totally unreadable. DH has an app that does the day by day stuff, but even that is a big "who cares" for me. I'm reading Game of Thrones. Far more interesting.
I don't want to hear any mommy/baby oriented conversation any more now than I did then. It took me five playgroups to find one that didn't bore me to tears. The one I liked best, served wine and had animated discussions about politics and dumb tv shows.
I'm very happy I'm pregnant again. We really worked hard for this baby. I'm nervous and holding my breath at every doctor's visit. I'm high risk and I panic if they don't find that heartbeat in the first few seconds. I'm even too anxious to be excited.
I am keeping up with the pregnancy, every few days, on The Cradle's calendar. Just for DD. Now SHE wants to know every little detail.
All I want it to not vomit on the dog during his walk, to have an easier time pooping and to get a healthy baby in November. or late October if my blood pressure keeps up like it is.
Did anyone else feel this way about the "next" kid(s)?
