How do I follow up such a sweet post by Hubby? Guess my just being me. Hee.
The feelings I have currently are so all over the place and if I even attempt to look at the big picture I just get scared! Some nights I lay in bed and it's dark and quiet and I think about the person growing inside me. And I freak. It takes all my energy to not sit up straight and begin screaming and crying. You spend your whole life trying to avoid getting pregnant that when it finally happens, it's so surreal. Most days I still can't believe it. And folks we are only heading into week 9. I have a lot of time for all if it to start to feel real, don't I?
And speaking of feeling real and all that goes with it...I think a lot of the scariness has to do with all the information that is out there. There is the debate about plastic bottles and pacifiers and toys. Then there is a debate about the parabens in lotion, shampoo, sunscreen. And how you should get an all natural crib and bedding. I want to make the right choices and good, healthy choices. But I don't even know what to believe. Sure everything is a little bad for you, but sometimes it can take years to realize just how bad, right? It's better to be safe and neurotic, than not? Grrr..arrrghhh!
We've been toying around with the idea of announcements for our family. I want to be able to direct them to this blog, so they can keep up with the day to day and month to month. Are announcements cheesy? I figure it would be a way to give them to blog address easily and also maybe alleviate all the phone calls I may get everyday, asking me how I am feeling. Or maybe I will be asking for trouble? Cause I'll get the phone calls AND questions about the blog at the same time?? But the announcements I found were so cute...
