Yesterday I decided that having morning sickness and being tired everyday and sleepless every night isn’t going to be for nothing. I never knew I’d love something so dearly and become so attached to something I’ve only known about for 3 weeks. I had a talk with baby on the way home from work last night. I told it that I’m not ready to give up & it had to be a good boy or girl and let the doctor see it’s little heart beat on Friday. I promised him or her that I’d take us out for ice cream if it would do this one little thing for me right now.
I then called Adam & told him I was going to stop at Barnes & Noble on my way home to buy my first pregnancy book, Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother’s Soul. I decided on this book because I wanted to read about experiences right now, not facts. I also loved that it had stories from expecting fathers so Adam could read them. Plus, it has comics & we all know how he loves his comics. At one point, he had to see what I was giggling about so he grabbed the book from my hands & started reading. LOL. I read about 4 chapters last night. I now understand why Pauline loves the Chicken Soup series so much.
