I've talked a little bit about this with a couple of people, thought I'd go ahead and share it here.
The worrying I'm doing over the baby is pretty much the same as the worrying I did over Nerdstar was she was deployed to Iraq. The worry is always in the back of my head, but sometimes it's worse than others. In both cases, at any given moment all could go horribly wrong - and there's not a damn thing I can do about it.
Two things are better now - it won't last nearly as long as the military deployment. And I get to at least have Nerdstar in sight most of the time.
