I have officially reached 3rd Tri! I am so happy. This pregnancy is viable. We are actually going to have a baby. I am actually going to give birth and bring home a son and raise him. I am actually going to be a mother to a baby who will BE IN MY ARMS. I am amazed.
It's hard to describe but until recently I really was not convinced that would ever happen. And now (barring anything going drastically wrong -- could the world POSSIBLY do that to me again?) it's going to. Finally. By the time this little baby enters our lives it will have been 3 years of waiting and hoping and trying for this. And I cannot WAIT.
The countdown is on. Just 12 weeks to go :-D
I have almost completed the registry.
I have started working on the nursery.
I am now feeling like I'm in my 3rd Trimester (aches & pains, etc. etc.)
My baby shower (MY baby shower!) is scheduled for March 1st.
My weight is increasing approx 1 lb/week, I've grown out of the early maternity clothes I was previously wearing, I've grown out of most of my shoes, and oh yeah, the other day while examining my stretch-mark ridden belly I actually touched the back of my belly button. Ha! (And also: ick!)
I just love this little eggplant-sized baby growing inside me. I cannot wait to meet him.
