(3/4 inch Nine Patch Mini)I have some news I've been wanting to share with you for a little while now. See, when we lost our electric for 2 weeks, back in the end of June, it was during a crazy heat wave and everyone was feeling generally gross, no appetite, nauseous, tired and yucky. It was just the heat. Then we got our electric back (thank you utility workers from all over the country!) and everyone started feeling like their old selves again, everyone but me! In fact I felt worse. Then I noticed these beautiful, strong finger nails growing on my fingers. Mine. Hmmmm, that's weird. My morning coffee gagged me. And I thought ~ coffee, I love you, what is wrong with me? We live out in the boonies and it takes quite a long while on some very curvy roads to get anywhere. So I thought I just "acquired" motion sickness. And then one day I looked at my husband and said "I'm pregnant." He smiled and said "yeah, right". and I said,"No, really, I know it." So I got a test and in less than a millisecond I had a positive test in my hands. And so life changes. Your mind set and plans change. Your emotions change (oh, boy, do they!). We are really happy to have a new baby on the way. I truly believe babies are blessings from above. We are pretty much starting from scratch. I have no baby things anymore except for the one or two things that I saved from my others as keepsakes. At least when you've had children you know that you don't need nearly as much "stuff" as you think you need when it's your first. I've had my first appointment and the midwife was super sweet, except when she said I was "advanced maternal age", umm, what? I chuckled, she didn't. I'm only 34 and mentally I feel like I'm 20 most of the time.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading. Just wanted to let you know our happy news.
