Okay… I lied

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. smile

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.

    I’m so glad that you’re looking more towards the positive side. Today, we got on subject of early pregnancies and when I told your story a lot of the gals related to it. Mary told me that her niece went through a lot of the same things you are going through … the cramps, a lot of sickness, not seeing a heartbeat. She didn’t give up and at 12 weeks they saw and heard the heartbeat. Everything is fine and dandy now (abt 16 wks) … except she’s still really sick, has some cramping, and the doctor told her to rest as much as possible.

    Tell that baby I want ice cream with him/her, too!
