It has taken me nearly a month to getting around to this post. I think it’s because there’s been big things happening (actually…one big thing) and I’m not sure how to talk about it. (Me? Having trouble talking? I KNOW, RIGHT?!)
If you follow me on facebook, you know by now that I am pregnant. Very exciting! *twirl* Cody and I are expecting our first little one, and we are due in the middle of August. Our first appointment isn’t until the 19th, and we will have our first ultrasound on that day.
That’s about as far as I’ve gotten in the process. Seriously. I kind of feel like…besides carrying crackers with me everywhere, I’m not really sure what to do next. The whole concept still feels a little abstract to us. I feel like I should naturally feel super connected to my baby and feel all my motherly instincts seeping in. But in reality, I feel more like a bloated, queasy, emotional, crazy person who eats double her weight in food every day and never drinks coffee.** Someone commented on my “belly” yesterday and I had to be honest with her. That’s not baby. That’s gas.
And so far, the biggest thing I’ve noticed is that pregnancy happens REALLY FAST with other people and REALLY SLOW when it’s you. An interesting road so far, and I’m sure it gets better/weirder/amazing-er/whatever.
Next post: the morning we found out. 🙂
“This is what the LORD says—
he who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19
**That’s right, folks. No coffee. Strangely enough, even though I am allowed one cup of coffee a day, the stuff just sounds/smells/tastes gross to me now. I will make sure my children know how they have disabled me and where I got that chronic twitch from.
