strangest things i've heard so far....
- co-worker (who has no children) "why did you want to do that?" me- because we wanted another baby "i know, but why? why would anyone want to" all i could think to say was "you'll understand one day"
- lady - "so, it was a surprise?" me- no, it was planned "oh, I didn't know you guys were even trying" (do people usually announce to the world when they are trying to have a baby? this person is not a relative, or even a friend - just an acquaintance) i thought it was very bizarre
- "i could tell you were pregnant" (i was 6 weeks at the time and had just announced it)
fathers are expecting too....
bo has been so cute. he's been wanting ice cream all the time and eating cookies at work. he says he's having "sympathy cravings". also, i'm very happy that he is so interested in the whole process. he gets the same weekly emails i do about our baby's growth and development. he'll say stuff like "you know the baby is the size of a kidney bean"..."and the lungs are developing".
he's also been enjoying reading "what to expect when you are expecting" - which is great because now he understands why i am moody and tired. he has been very helpful with morgan and with doing laundry, etc. he also is very overprotective, which is cute. he doesn't want me bending over, picking up anything even remotely heavy - the funniest thing is when we first found out, he said "don't be letting anybody bump into your belly. i know you'll be careful, but just be really careful"
as far as symptoms go, i did have morning sickness for about a week. i have been fine for the past 5 or 6 days, so hopefully it is over. i have also been really tired. i never take naps, but i took two this weekend! and i didn't have any trouble falling asleep each night so i guess i really needed the extra sleep. also, i've had at least one weird baby-related dream. i dreamt i took the baby to daycare and he was only 2 weeks old. at the end of the day the lady informed me that she didn't take infants until they were at least 20 weeks old. then i left the baby in a closet - he was in a bassinet and it was a walk-in closet, so he was ok. but i do remember that i had forgotten he was in there, so i felt bad. i'm sure i will have many more dreams like this, becuase i remember having them with morgan. hopefully none will be too scary.
i guess that's all for now. we've been taking "belly pics" each week so once my bump becomes noticeable i will post several of them .
