What She Wore: White, long-sleeve tee; flared, denim skirt; pink, cable-knit cashmere sweater, pink Ugg boots. I think some people hate boots with skirts, but I think they make my legs look nice, so screw it.
Well, I sure hope that his does’t turn into a baby-only blog, but I do have some thoughts to share about this whole experience.
- Getting pregnant has meant ditching all my medication–ALL of it. This has been a real adjustment for me. I’ve been taking certain medications for ages, namely my antidepressants (I HATE to discuss this, but I’m trying to be real here). The withdrawal was agony–chills, body aches, head aches, and, of course, my mood came crashing down. I really should have weaned myself off, but I figured if it’s not good for the baby then it’s not good for the baby. So–I did it cold turkey which sucks. I’m still dealing with my non-medicated moods combined with the raging preggo hormones. Some days I don’t like myself very much–I feel like a beotch on wheels. But, this is short-term and I WILL get over it. Some of my co-workers just might have to duck every once and a while.
- Seeing that baby on the ultrasound is the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entrie life. At least 25% of me thought that the doctor would put that thing on my belly and tell me that there was no baby in there–it just didn’t seem possible. But there it was –moving and bouncing like it had a life of it’s own–and it does! I was speechless and couldn’t take my eyes off that screen. There is absolutely no describing it, and yet I wish that I could.
- The Hub is probably happier than I am. He came to the appointment, and I wish I could have bottled his excitement. I feel so very lucky to have married him. It really feels like we’re in this together. Ask me how i feel about that when we get to eight months.
- And FINALLY–I’m really going to have to do some thinking with this whole clothes thing. Right now I’m just sticking to my "fat" clothes, but sooner or later I’m ging to have to buy actual maternity duds. And the shoes? What do I do about the shoes? I guess only time will tell.
