Who really cares???? Well...doesn't everyone?

Okay, so I don't know if every pregnant woman is as psycho as I am about being pregnant. Not psycho as in doing everything right...cause I am far from that. Psycho as far as excited. I want everyone to know. I tell people at check out lines, the bank teller, the woman at the post office, seriously, any poor soul who fains the least bit of interest gets my news! :)

I am so thankful for Mike & I to be starting our family! I am so excited to be a mom. Am I worried about not screwing up my child? Of course, but I have a great family that is Chalk full of good advice. If you have ever met my sister's sons you would know that I have a good model to follow. Nicolas will be 9 next month (I really can't believe that) and can hold a more intelligent conversation than most adults! Jeremiah is just 14 months and can already pick up after himself and do so many things that most 2 and 3 year olds (and adults) don't know how to do. It's all in the training, and I know that I have a good child training Guru in my sister.

Okay, so back to my psycho excitement. I have a count down clock on my computer screen ticking down the minutes until we hopefully find out whether it's a boy or girl (8 days, 17 hrs, 32 min & 31 sec, 28 sec, 26 sec.....). I bought some iron on transfer paper to create my own t-shirts (mainly one that says "Jingle Belly, Jingle Belly, Baby on the Way), I have already registered (which I started doing on the day I found out and continue to add things as I think about Kidd and how she/he is growing). Every name I come across through our program applications, people I meet, or names I hear on the TV or radio are all the suddenly potential kid names. I walk around holding my belly and praying silently for the child growing within me to become a strong Christian servant to be a light for Jesus into this world, and when I am alone I hold my belly and say out lout "Grow Baby GROW!"

So, I know that I am not the only soon-to-be-mom that does these things, and that is reassuring. But... I still feel sorry for the people that get trapped in my excitement! So sorry if that is you!!! Not sorry enough to stop of course!! I'm going to be a mom!!! Why not get excited about that!!!!

That's too funny! I was the same way. I just couldn't understand why people were not just in awe that I was growing a miracle.
