Fast Forwarding Again...

Alright, someone took my fast forward button and threw it on steroids this time. (drumroll please...)

I'm PREGNANT. Yup. You heard me. Knocked up. Expecting. Wow, I know so little about this phase of life, those are the only terms I can think of. I'm 10 weeks and 1 day. My baby is an inch and a half long and looks like a human. It has arms, legs, fingers and toes. It has eyes and an audible heartbeat. I've got a life inside of me.

It's a crazy concept. One that's still setting in for me. But I'm excited. Even though I knew this was a possibility, nothing prepared me for that positive test. I sucked my breath in hard and that let it out with a loud, "You're kidding me!" Plans are going well. I had my first ultrasound at 7 weeks. It was incredible. To actually see the baby made my little notion a firmly planted reality. And to see the rhythmic beating of it's tiny heart was out of this world. As I remained dumbfounded at my slowly growing belly, my bouts of nausea, and the telltale fact that my period just doesn't come... this is slowly sinking in. Emphasis on the slowly.

I'll continue to blog throughout the pregnancy. I'll let you know what's up and how things are going. Mostly for my own insanity above your own enjoyment. But reading is optional, right?
