We live in an area where childcare is extremely expensive and competitive. I'm not quite 7 weeks and I'm already filling out applications and have been told by our first choice that it likely won't happen this year because their applications are already going through the approval process for this year. The places that take infants are very few. I would need to go by to work by 12 weeks at the latest.

Has anyone else experienced this craziness? I feel almost like I'm jinxing this pregnancy by filling out applications or getting on waitlists (ultrasound is next week), but I'm also afraid to wait and not get into a good facility.
