Our Fist Pumping Baby
I was supposed to have this ultrasound at 10 weeks, but since I think I know it all, I put it off, because I was positive I wasn't as far along as they said I was. Well I was wrong. This goes down to that whole "you're pregnant even before the egg is fertilized" thing. Never realized that bit of science.
You want to know some other things I never knew? You always hear about women knowing they're pregnant because of nausea/vomiting, etc. But the dead giveaway is sore boobs. (Sorry for tmi, but this is real life, people.) SO sore. I felt like a pre-teen going through puberty again! How come no one tells you that?
And how come no one tells you that if you spend too long kneeling or something, the lack of circulation can possibly make you pass out?? That information would have saved me a lot of embarrassment before I woke up passed out in the sealing room in the Laie Temple with my vomit on the spotless white carpet. Oh, the joys of pregnancy!
But in all seriousness, I'm feeling really good. I have had a relatively easy first trimester, with no scares or complications, which I am so grateful for. And even though the thought of having children still scares me to death, I'm finding comfort in the fact that this is what I should be doing. I love this quote:
And seeing Victor's excitement and joy in all of this is making it very worth it. So thank you all for your words of happiness and encouragement. Love you!
