A Little Boost

Well, today has been pretty slow. Kurt came in from being on call around 8 this morning and crashed in bed. I woke up awhile later (okay, a LOT later) and he didn't emerge until around 1 or 1:30. Working every other night on call has been killing his body clock. Thankfully, September has fewer nights of call, but they are almost ALL on Sundays! :o( He left around 2:30 to head to the hospital again. He works so hard!

Tomorrow morning we have a doctors' appointment! I'll be almost 16 weeks. This is the one time I REALLY want them to do a sonogram since Kurt only got to see the very first one. They've done a sonogram every visit (nothing has been wrong....they've just done them for some reason). If they all of a sudden don't do one, I think I'm going to request, just for Kurt's sake. I love seeing them too!

Tomorrow night is the women's ministry event at church that I'm helping with. I'll be setting up my candy buffet and helping out with registration, etc. It's a Pajama Party theme, including pizza, salad, and ice cream sundaes...a pregnant person's dream! :o)

Speaking of being pregnant, I had an interesting experience the other night. I was reading someone's blog about the recent birth of their first child. She did a lot of things naturally (meaning no epidural, etc.), which I don't plan on doing (bring on that RELIEF!), but as I was reading, something in me changed. I suddenly became thoroughly enamored and enchanted with the concept of being pregnant and having a baby.

Don't get me wrong....I wasn't ever resentful or negative about expecting...I just hadn't had my "moment" yet where I was completely at peace, happy, and somewhat confident that I can bring a child into the world and do a relatively good job raising him or her. I also know that feeling the baby move for the first time will be a huge moment for me. So anyway, it just felt nice to have a boost of excitement.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

I'm really hoping Kurt can see another sonogram! What a beautiful moment that must have been! I'm glad that you were able to get that boost!

Sounds like "reality" is setting in. That's a sweet thing. Up until now, my guess is that it's been pretty surreal. You are right...feeling that baby move for the first time will be huge. Suddenly, there is a real little person in there...there is a connection between you and that baby that no one else in the world can experience. Those were some of the sweetest, most emotional feelings I've ever had...

Bring on all those beautiful "moments." I am so glad your confidence and excitement are growing day by day. ~Blessings!
