    I feel the same way.

    I get really freaked out sometimes when I am driving. I deeply dread coming upon a situation where I will have to decide if/how to help an animal who has been hurt beyond repair or finding an animal on a really busy street and trying to save it from being run over. And don't even get me started on how scared I get thinking about a situation with a child in it. It almost feels like a little mental illness thing - I get really panicky feeling just imagining what I might see.

    I just worry that I will not do anything or will do the wrong thing or will not be strong enough to do the right thing.

    Just thinking ... DH doesn't want me to tell family, etc. he's in town because he doesn't want to feel obligated to socialize. He just wants to come see me and the dogs and be at home for a few days. I'm just picturing if I get pregnant and my whole family (and his family) looking at the calendar and raising an eyebrow. Too funny!

    He won't want to see anyone, not even on his last day?

    He said his goodbyes already. I don't really think he wants to do that again.

    Okay - here's another idea I've been kicking around. Make a regular fruit crisp (peaches are in season here ) and instead of making the usual streusel topping, just crush the cookies, mix with some butter and maybe some chopped nuts if you like and sprinkle on top before baking.

    The apple crisp might be really good with the maple flavor. Yum. I'm hungry now.

    I made a rustic peach tart this weekend that was better than any peach dessert I have ever had - my husband (who normally doesn't eat sweets at all) had four pieces in one day. I must have eaten half of it and we gave 1/4 of it to our neighbor.

    The thing was huge and good. And I'm now good and huge.

    Great idea with fruit crisp, that sounds reaaallly good! There are no peaches around at the moment, but I could do apples.

    Hey, the same thing has happened to me this time but it didn't last time, so I'm like, 'woah, where did THESE come from?!"

    Oh yes. The porn star boobs. I have some of those as well...except for the giant nipples..that's not porn star ish I don't think.

    And on to less boobish things. Danny just left for the wedding that takes him 3.5 hours away from me 39 weeks pregnant. I'm stoked about it, can't you tell? I feel bad for him though - he cried, because he'll miss Annie...and he's worried that he might miss the beginning of labor. I said "Well, then just don't go" But of course, he feels he must.

    Why did he feel that he needed to go that strongly?

    Honestly, they do feel like 'me' Like they've always been there. I can do everything I used to do (even turn a cartwheel, I did this weekend) and I still think I look more like my mental image of myself than I did before. Except, if I'm honest, when I dream about myself my hair is still near black and long with teased bangs. I was class of '94, don't laugh. :-D

    Actually, I went and got Moe's. It's the first time having it...not bad - but also...not great. We have a really great fresh mexican food place here in town...but parking is atrocious, and I would have just picked something up there, but I didn't feel like dealing...huge and all.

    Well, it's his bff from highschool, and he was in our wedding...and Danny is doing a reading for them ... I guess both of us just didn't think much of it when he was asked to be a part of the wedding, and just assumed that we'd both want to go, but then as it got closer to my due date, I realized that I really didn't want to be in a position where I might go into labor away from home, kinda defeats the purpose of a home birth and so I decided that I would not go. (oh, and I also got pressure from the bride and groom to know if I would definitely be there or not) So now...he felt committed, and I understand.

    That makes sense. Hopefully the wedding will go fast and he'll be home before you know it and he won't have missed a thing.
