CONFESSIONS OF A PREGNANT WOMEN....

Okay, I promise that this wont turn into a blog about a developing fetus.... but, I have a confession.

I think this is something that everyone can understand. My whole life, I have imagined having kids. I mean, really -- some people want them, some people don't and I have always been in the first category. I remember telling my mom when I was a wee child that I was going to have 10 kids. I remember she laughed and said, "first have one -- then decided". Being pregnant is not fun (at least, it isn't fun right now for me....). I thought from the second I found out we were expecting I was going to be the happiest women in the world but, that hasn't been the case.

Actually, I don't even know if I am excited. Here is a secret. Dan and I were trying for a while to get pregnant (or not trying not to get pregnant) I know, sounds stupid to some people because we are still in school but -- we are always up for a challenge so the fact that we are actually pregnant is a little unreal. I'm sure the excitement will come. I'm sure that after a while, I will be "into it" but as for now.... I'm just doing what I would normally due with a little more time added in to sleep and throw up. See what I mean, it isn't that great... Yet.

When you start to feel the little doodle rumbling around in there, that's when the excitement and the feeling that it is real will start. It'll get better. If not, then you can beat me up.

I know how you feel.... both physically and emotionally...
the whole fact that we were pregnant was pretty unreal; even now it's unreal that we have a baby... maybe one day it will sink in.
