5 month reality check? — The Bump
2nd Trimester

5 month reality check?

Did anyone else have a 5 month reality check moment where they realized they have like 4 months  and a bit left and feel suddenly a little over whelmed?

 Perhaps it's just me today given the baby is moving and kicking well, I have the most energy I have had all pregnancy and the crib/mattress and bedding just arrived and it all looks so good. But somehow it makes it all more real...more overwhelming :D Yet overwhelming brings even more excitement I will note!

Re: 5 month reality check?

  • yup can't believe I'm 17 weeks already. I have not done a thing to prepare for this baby Embarrassed I haven't told anybody I'm pregnant yet. Guess I better get going, lol.
  • La la la la la...  I can't hear you...  I just realized how pregnant I really am today and kind of a had a mini panic attack.  I still haven't even scheduled a tour of the hospital and they only do them one day a month!

  • i have had moments of this throughout my pregnancy.  It is slightly overwhelming to think about all that needs to be done especially since it has been to early to really do anything.  Not to mention the stress of having a baby.  I am toatlly excited but lets be honest it is a little stessful to be responsible for a life.  It is a big job and a lot of work but just try to get through these moments and remember it will  all be ok.

  • What hits me is that I only have about 3.5 months left of work. As much as I look forward to being a SAHM, it is going to be a huge change for me and I'm a bit anxious about it.  

    There is a ton to do to get ready for baby, too, of course!

  • It is all going by so fast -- I'm not overwhelmed yet, I just can't believe that I'm already through my first trimester, and I know the next few months (holidays, etc) will go be really fast too!

  • Just wait until you only have 2 months to go.  My ticker says 69 days.  I'm suddenly having a panic attack b/s the nursery isn't done.
  • I have 13 weeks left... we've done nothing. I'm not worried yet! We don't have a nursery though so I don't need to set up as much as most people - just a PnP in our room & a changing pad on our dresser.

  • I'm 6 months and haven't had the reality check yet.  I think in one more month when Halloween hits, then I realize I have to prepare for Thanksgiving, Christmas and LO's3rd birthday in COMBINATION with getting ready for a new baby... I'll probably start the freak-out.

  • I'm 6 months as of yesterday and that is when I kinda started feeling panicky. I haven't picked out a crib/bedroom furniture, planned anything/registered for anything for a shower or even picked a name so kudos to you :
  • I am 17 weeks and started getting a belly overnight!!. I keep thinking that I have plentyyy of time. We haven't even glanced at names (together at least). I feel your overwheelming feelings!!

  • I'm def there but it's still so far off in some ways too. We're moving into our first house next month and there's the holidays and all that so it's a bunch of fun stuff coming up. It's funny because I can't wait for him to get here but at the same time I'm scared/sad that my relationship with my husband will change but I'm sure it'll all be for the better !

  • I'm not 5 months yet, but I had a holy crap moment this morning when I was reading a post and noticed my ticker said LO is 10" head to toe. I've been thinking crown to rump this whole time.... Crazy...

  • It hit me this weekend when we were painting what will be the nursery! I can't believe how fast it's already gone and that we're over halfway. Now that baby is finally starting to move more that makes it feel more real to me too. :)
