Yuck, I can't believe I am posting this picture! But it was taken on the day that we found out we are pregnant and I was very happy. I will probably love this picture in a few months when I can't see my feet any longer so I am just posting it without looking back.
So, um...this task is complete way sooner than I thought it would be. We only "tried" for one month and got extremely lucky. The baby is due sometime around April 15, 2010! We went to the doctor yesterday and we saw the baby on an ultrasound and its' little heart just beating away so we decided that we were comfortable letting the world know our wonderful news. Today I am nine weeks pregnant and feeling pretty good. I seem to have night sickness many nights rather than morning sickness but I have heard so many other nightmare first trimester stories that I am very hesitant to complain about any little probem I experience. Plus, it changes all the time. I will be having one problem for a few days then it goes away and I am on to a new problem. One constant seems to be fatigue! I have been tired for the last five weeks with no reprieve. I guess it is just a reminder of what it will be like when I have a newborn.
It doesn't feel real yet. When I say "my baby" or "our child" or "when the baby comes" it always just feels like I am talking about myself in some alternate universe or in some really abstract sense. I can't believe I am going to be someone's mother!
Any and all motherly advice or words of wisdom is welcome and wanted!
