you count mine! I have been waiting with white knuckles this whole time and I hope
this means that I can finally exhale and enjoy this time with my peach.
I get made fun of by my girlfriends about my "stoic" attitude towards this pregnancy so
far. I think they want me to squeal and jump up and down, but I have been so cautious
about everything the squealing has just not happened and wouldn't jumping up and down
knock the baby loose? I'm just kidding about that last bit.......kinda. Even today at the appointment when we heard the heartbeat my hubby teared up and I just said "oh good,
it's there", it seems to takes a few hours for the good news to sink in.
I also purchased my first pair of maternity jeans, not really because I need them, but
because I wanted to try on the fake bump they give you at the store. I have to tell you
that I looked perfectly round when I tried the 9 month bump on, I guess that's what
happens when your just 5 feet tall. I adored having the "bump" and the maternity jeans
on, although I knew it wasn't real, it kinda helped me realize how real it is about to
become. The bands on the maternity pants also hid my love handles quite well, which
is a bonus....I wonder how early is too early to start wearing them! haha
Well thats about it for the last few weeks, tonight I am attending a brainstorming
meeting to explore ways to get IVF funded here in our province. I hope we can make
some headway and come up with some great rally ideas for the next year, the government needs to hear more about the benefits to funding IVF.
