Guess what...

I'm having a baby in December. (I'm 17 weeks along)

This definitely directly corresponds to the fact that me and my husband against our better judgment were "trying". But none-the-less i found out on Good Friday that my life was gonna change ... drastically. Thankfully i haven't had morning sickness, and if i hadn't have seen two pink lines I wouldn't have believed i was pregnant for the 1st few weeks. I have had a couple food cravings (my sister says i was that way before i got the pregnancy bug) and a few symptoms you don't see on the TV (I'll spare you the details) but all in all i've been having a good pregnancy. I'm officially blaming everything that i do or don't do on the fetus, which is getting old with my family and friends but 50% of its probably true.
 Everybody asks me if I'm "excited". I tell them "no", i'm worried, anxious, nervous, and scared. But my parents have "excited" covered enough for everybody. They could not be any more happy about becoming a grammy and grumpy (or gee-paw, still up in the air). But there is a reason that it takes 9 months, I am starting to feel a little excited about baby. I am completely amazed and in awe at the miracle of growing a baby, what's happening to my body and what baby organ i've grown today. I'm also obsessed with comparing the baby to the size of a fruit or vegetable (my phone app helps). I thought this was normal until i was caught in the grocery store coddling a peach very carefully with both hands. Its currently the size of a turnip now in week 17, which confuses me cause i can't picture a turnip.

We have decided not to find out the gender until the baby comes out, i have 3 girls' names and no boys', which i'm taking as a sign that this "thing-a-ma-jig" doesn't have a hoo-hoo. Boys names are hard. Also i'm relying 75% on the pencil test (where you thread a needle with thread and pierce a pencil eraser with the needle, and hold it above a woman's wrist, if the pencil makes a circle its a GIRL and if it makes a straight line its a boy) I've gotten girl every time. :) But Honestly i don't care what i have, as long as its happy and healthy, i'll be just fine.
