M.I.A.

Sorry, I've been a little out of the loop lately. I still read all your blogs every day though. ;) I really don't have much to report which, no news is good new, right? Well, my belly is expanding although I still find it hard to notice. I'm in full-blown maternity pants, no shirts yet, just pants. I did, however, order some maternity shirts from Old.Navy and got some good deals on them. It is my goal not to look frumpy and dishevled while preggers, let's see if I can accomplish that. I swear I'm already having trouble breathing, my ribs feel like they're going to collapse at any second. Don't know if this is normal so early in the pregnancy but I'm sure stuff is just shifting all around in there. I check on the little gal from time to time and her heartbeat's still nice and strong. We bought and assembled a crib last weekend and I've got to tell you, the whole thing is just surreal. I cannot, cannot believe that we've come to this point in our lives finally. The whole reality that, God willing, I will be bringing home a healthy beautiful baby in just five months still has not sunk in. It feels like I'm living someone else's life because it was just a short while ago that I truly thought we would never have children of our own. I don't think it's fully going to sink in until we're in the delivery room. I haven't been as nauseated which is nice, but I find myself terribly irritable all the time. Oh, sweet hormones, what would we do without them?

It's so lovely to read your entry and to hear that all is going well. Gives me hope also!

Sorry you had to decline being your friend's bridemaid but I think it is a wise decision and I'm glad she was understanding. I am my sister's bridemaid in 4 weeks time and it is a busy job!

Hope all goes well at your appointments.

Take care, N

Hi Ashley! I'm so glad to hear everything is going well. I know what you mean about how surreal it all feels and just not being able to believe it is happening. Yesterday I swapped out all my clothes that aren't fitting from the closet and it was surprising how emotional that was. Let us know how your appointment goes!
