Having a Baby...WOW!

Okay - sorry that I've been In Abscencia all summer... but I've been busying growing a whole person inside me... yes, we're expecting our first child.
First, I need to vent a little about the...
  • morning sickness that lasts all day...
  • the fact that last year I was running 10 miles at a time to prepare for the 1/2 marathon and now I can't even get up the stairs without losing my breath!
  • the withdrawal at not being able to drink coffee (not b/c it's got caffeine but b/c now it tastes like dirt)
  • a belly button that feels like it's going to explode!
  • maternity clothes that are all made of polyester and look like they come from granny's closet (sorry, grandmothers out there!!!)
  • people joke that I'm going to have the baby writing in their writer's notebook by the time they're 2 years old (ahem! correction: my baby will be writing in their writer's notebook from Day 1, even if I have to scribe it for them!)
...yeah, they never tell you about these things....
However, being pregnant is also pretty cool because...
  • having cravings for McDonald's is kind of fun
  • Matthew is so nice about filling in the blanks in the housework while I'm sleeping!
  • Everyone makes a big deal about you!
  • I get weekly email updates that tell me the size of my baby every week and make up funny nicknames for him/her!
  • I get to hear gory birthing stories all the time now!
Sigh... I can't believe I'm going to be a mom... scary and cool. I can't wait to see how it goes! :)
