A Baby Story: Month One & Two

Two entire months of pregnancy have come and gone faster than I could have ever imagined. It's hard to believe that we found out that we were expecting a little miracle an entire month ago although all of the pregnancy symptoms have me more than convinced that there's a little one there! It's been a pretty rough start but I feel as if things have started to calm down. Hopefully within the next month all of this horrible sickness will have gone away too!

It's hard to grasp how much our lives are going to change in a few short months. It must be the nesting instinct within me, but all I can think of is preparations. I've been going through old clothes and tubs and getting rid of things that I never thought I'd get rid of to make room for baby. I've been cleaning corners and closets and scrubbing floors and windows. I know it's early but I just feel the need to...well, prepare.

We already have an overabundance of toys and clothes that have been given to us that I need to go through and everyone seems extremely convinced that we're going to be great parents. I on the other hand am pretty anxious, not having my own mother in my life and knowing that my grandmother is an hour away and really in no shape to help. I hope that I don't become overwhelmed in the coming months with 'what-ifs' and just trust that all of my previous experience with other people's babies will carry on to my own.

Our first ultrasound experience was truly amazing and we'll get to see our little peanut again here in a couple of weeks. I'm sure he or she will look much more like a baby this time! In the meantime I'm hoping that all of the exhaustion and morning sickness will start to fade, I'm sick 90% of the day and it really, really sucks. I wouldn't trade it for anything though, knowing that it's caused by our precious little one!
