Gahh.

I keep wanting to write a new post...but all I have on my mind is babybabybabybabybabyyyyyyyyyyyy. I don't want to BORE the crap out the few folks who read this blog that aren't a parent or expecting. But I'm telling you...that is HARD. I just can't think of much else!

I can't stop thinking about the fact that I am pregnant and that there is a baby in my belly ready to come live with us in less that 6 months. What is with THAT?!?!?! I need at LEAST another 9 months before I am going to feel prepared. Can you tell I'm a procrastinator?

The GOOD thing is that in the last 2 weeks I have become more excited about being pregnant and becoming a mama and less terrified by the whole idea. Also, I don't feel completely exhausted all the time and I'm able to do more than eat, sleep, and go to work.

So...sorry if I have put you to sleep with my brief blurb on whats up over here at OTOP....as soon as I have something NON-BABY to say I'll post it!

So glad to hear the exhaustion has passed. I remember when that happened - I felt like a brand new person and also, I realized just how crappy I had been feeling for the past 11 weeks. Also glad to hear that you are feeling less scared and more excited.

Kate introduced me to your blog, it is actually a relief to hear another nurse out there talk about becoming a mom. I'm due with our first baby in April and I feel like since I'm a nurse I'm expected to "know it all" but I have never felt so unprepared for anything in my life! As a control freak-type A, that isn't a good feeling. It's gotten so much better, but I can't say I'm completely anxiety free. I'm glad you're over the 1st trimester slump...can't wait to hear more baby news!

So glad to hear you are feeling better! I remember that euphoric feeling when I finally felt better.

And don't worry about posting too many baby posts. It's a big deal! And now that I'm a Mom I can't get enough Baby Talk.

Just wait til you feel the baby move!

Yeah, I just want to say that I can't get enough baby talk either so I'm all for baby posts!

Wait until you're 8 months -- that's when I went on fixation that went like this: I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS WILL COME OUT OF MY VAGINA. THERE'S NO POSSIBLE WAY THIS WILL FIT THROUGH THE VAGINA . . .and on and on. That fixation passed. By month nine you're a walking untouchable goddess ready for anything.

Fixate away, girl! It's your belly -- AND THERE'S A BABY INSIDE OF THERE! Crazy.

I clicked to your blog from, yeah, I don't remember where. Beth's blog, So The Fish Said? Maybe?

Anyway, I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS and then ME TOO! I could have totally written this post =)
