Now I’m wishing I’d mentioned it on the blog when we first found out
instead of following the 12 week rule. The euphoria of finally getting
pregnant was too quickly overshadowed by over-35 worries and where are
we going to fit all these kids worries and the oh my god I’m going to
barf out the window of this car worries. I’m so happy today. I’m outed
and feeling very happily pregnant. I’m even wearing a maternity shirt
today and it’s the first day my belly bottom isn’t peeking out for the
world to see. All your wonderful comments and warm wishes really
brought back the new baby excitement for me. Thank you!
We’re for sure going to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. So funny
that so many of you mention girl. I’m totally feeling boy. That’s what I’ve kinda been hoping for, most of the time, although we’ll be happy either way. I know Oscar would really enjoy a little brother (although
he’s not on board with this new baby thing one bit) and I think 2 boys
are just so cute. Really, I just can’t imagine a girl. I always refer
to belly baby as a he. But of course, somewhere in my subconscious girl
must creep in occasionally because I felt compelled to buy all these
cutie storybook fabrics from Superbuzzy.
And thanks for all the supportive comments about
the sickness. I’ve decided that’s why you’re not allowed to tell people
in the first 12 weeks, so they don’t have to hear you bitching about
how awful you feel every day. I’ve got my new sea band bracelets on and
my ginger ale and my positive outlook but I’m still under it. I toughed it through another holiday outing today. We went to see Polar Express at the movie theater downtown. Oscar was enthralled. It was so cute. If only cute cured morning sickness.
And thank you to those of you who said you were amazed at how much I
got done these past months while being sick! I was trying so
hard to keep up in some way. We totally busted our ass on the robot
book and I am so proud I was able to suck it up and get that done.
Despite that effort, I’ve still been feeling so guilty and behind on
everything. I’m ready to let go of that too. Here’s to cute killing blogging guilt too!
