friendly helloEDD 4th of July
Been wondering about all the little weird things lately, getting up in the night to pee, crying at the drop of a hat, noticing ciggarette smoke and poopey diapers, oh and being hungry ALL THE TIME!
so I shouldn't have been so surprised to see the results of that pregnancy test, but I was indeed... quite surprised. I could not decide what emotion I was feeling, even while I was choking on it. I cried and smiled and cried and laughed and cried and called my sister. My poor husband was at work and I had to wait till he came home. I wrote him a cute little love note from all THREE of his kids and had my 4 year old deliver it to him. The shock registered on his face a moment after the puzzlement and he's been kissing me and telling me he loves me ever since. We live with another couple and they all had shots of tequila together in the kitchen, it was nice to have them celebrating with us.
In the meantime, life goes on... I have a 4 year old daughter who is only a month into her first school experience (and loving it) and I have a 2 year old son who is unbelievably cute and loving and stubborn. I keep busy driving her to school, changing his diapers and trying to keep up with the mountains of laundry and dishes.
I haven't really allowed myself much time to even think about this new child who has entered our lives, I hope that joining this group will help me remember to cherish the journey. I also hope that this group of women rnadomly brought together by nature's whim will prove to be the loving support I found in my first DDC (SEPT2004) Only other pregnant women really get it... the ridiculous internal fixation on all the mundane details of our bodies as they nourish new life.
Joy to all
