no. 669 – Is It Wrong?

Is it wrong…

…that every time I drop something on the floor I simultaneously get vertigo and want to burst into tears?


Is it wrong…

…that every time I walk down an aisle or hallway, I feel as if I’ve been transported into an old-fashioned western movie (in which case I would say this all damn day)?


Is it wrong…

…that every time I look down at the keyboard, I recall the Seinfeld episode about Man Hands?


Yes, I’m bitching. I’m a hormonal, emotional mess. Venting keeps me from focusing on my fears. And I swear to you, I am more frightened now of something happening than I was during the first 14 weeks of this pregnancy. Countdown is (almost) official: exactly seven weeks from today is the latest we will have to go.



  1. Nope – not wrong. Completely normal ! You feel free to vent and we’ll all hold your hand

  2. Awwww, DD. I can imagine the stress you are feeling right now. Day by day, hour by hour. You’ll get through it.

  3. You vent away, love.

  4. Hang on, we are here. This too shall pass.

  5. Believe me, I know. To make it that far and have something go terribly wrong was the hardest part- I just wanted it to be over and to know they were breathing and alive.

    Wish I had something better to say than “hang in there,” but that’s all I’ve got.

  6. Venting is good.

  7. My god! So soon!

    You’re doing GREAT.

  8. 7 weeks sounds both incredibly close and so far away at the same time.

    Until then, vent away!

  9. Totally normal and yet still so frustrating. Vent away.

  10. Not wrong, just wishing it weren’t so, for you sake, but it’s not wrong at all.

    Hang in there DD, what else is there?

  11. Meh. Vent away.

  12. Well, pilgrim, won’t be long now. You just mosey on down yonder to the waterin’ hole & good ol’ John Wayne will rub your feet. (The only JW movie I truly truly enjoyed was True Grit & The Quiet Man)

    Oh god. The man-hands. I already have big hands, and at the 8 month stage, they were GROSS!

    Only 7 more weeks huh? So exciting!
