Fantastic feedback - thanks guys!
I am working from home today - felt 'off' yesterday and thought the rest would do me good. I am reading boring documents and trying to write a speech for May but to be honest I do about an hour's work and then wonder off into baby thinking.
I wonder if they are still head to head? One of them had completely flipped around and now they bang their heads together as they lay on top of each other. I saw one of them yawn. What a moment that was. I can't wait to see them, hold them, feed them, watch them sleep, dress them, smell them, nibble on their fat little legs. I am working until the very last moment which will be so unpleasant in NYC in the summer but then I get 2 whole months with them. I am so greedy for that time right now.
DH is freaking out. He is unhappy with his job, his friends, his life ... etc. It's his way of dealing with the nerves of fatherhood. He is worried he will lose himself when they are born, that life will be over and all we will do is bicker and work. So today, instead of my usual supportive murmurings, I said " Your life is and always will be your responsibility. How you live, how you feel, what you do and don't do is entirely up to you. Embrace and be grateful or change it".
Today question: what did you're partner go through and what how did you respond? Did they find (or did you find for them) any great resources to help them through all this?
