"A new baby is like the beginning of all things-
wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities."
-Eda J. Le Shan
Our journey started 20 weeks ago. Although, my body knew before I did, or rather before we did, that something wonderful was happening. Something huge and life-changing. We are going to be parents. Yes, I said it! We are going to be parents and we are sharing the great news.
This week I'm just slightly over 20 weeks along, at the halfway point... The days seem to be going a little faster or slower depending on how I feel each day. And, now that it's all out in the open, I feel like I can breathe a little easier. I can longer the truth or the very obvious bump. The first trimester was filled with unknown, the excitement and the worry. And, you, my dear little one, you made yourself known by making me sick for many a day, with no idea why. Rather, I thought it was just some bug going around at work or some residual worry from the recent Hantavirus scare up in Yosemite. And, it wasn't until that one or two or five little sticks, said 'Pregnant,' that everything made sense. But, having five sticks tell me the news is vastly different from seeing you on a monitor or hearing your heartbeat for the very first time.
We are halfway there and we are looking forward to meeting you and holding you in our arms.
