My friends at google informed me via their search engine picture that today was the first day of spring. So happy spring to all.
From those of you who suffer from SAD, this will be good news. I definitely yearn for warmth, so I’m happy. Though the 3 week vacation on the west coast definitely helped me get past my usual winter doldrums.
But spring is about new life. So let’s just say I figured out what all the fatigue and nausea that’s been bothering me was.=)
I’m not turning this blog into a catalog of pregnancy symptoms. But I will say how surprised I was in the multiple ways nature prepares your body to reproduce. I guess she’s been doing it for a while, and has it down pat. But it really is startling how a body you’ve known the ins and outs of for decades can just wake you up one day and throw a total curve ball. Followed by a slider. And a knuckleball.
But it’s all good and will all be worth it. We’ve been looking forward to expanding our family for some time now, and this is our chance. I’m lucky to have a wonderful husband who will be an awesome father and a family supporting me that is just as excited about the baby as we are. I am a lucky woman.
