Focus (or the Lack, Thereof) on Baby

I've finally published my earlier pregnancy drafts that I wrote before we announced Baby #3.  I actually forgot about them for awhile.  Oops.  Also I realized that I forgot to ask for print outs from my first in-office ultrasound so I don't have any baby pics to show yet.  Oops.  I feel a little bit bad for Baby #3 who I know won't get the same level of attention that Desmond or even Kaylynn got.  I'm too busy caring for the other two to focus on this one much.  I have managed to start knitting a baby blanket like I did for the other two so that's good.  I haven't touched it in a couple weeks but hopefully I've started it soon enough to finish it by February.  Especially now that my morning sickness is subsiding, sometimes I completely forget about being pregnant.  I am trying to get belly pictures every month.  Hopefully I can keep that up the rest of the time.  I want give as much of myself to this baby as I was able to give Desmond, but reality is that Kaylynn never has never had my exclusive attention, and this baby will share me three ways.  Parenting is a constant adjustment and this is another big one.  I know we'll find our new groove, but it worries me sometimes.
In other news I had an extra doctor's appointment about a week ago.  I thought I might have been leaking amniotic fluid.  I won't go into details, but it was just weird and had me slightly worried.  I called advice and they said to come in and be checked.  Everything checked out just fine.  Good to know!

I worry about some of these things too. I think most good parents do. I try to remind myself of all the good things about siblings, like learning to share and having other kids to play with. I read an article recently that the more kids you have, the lower divorce chance of divorce your kids will have since they have had experience learning to live with people and deal with problems.

Good point, Beth. I can't imagine not having siblings. I'm glad my kiddos have brothers and sisters to love and learn from.
