Dreaming, Planning, Thinking

I feel like my mind is on a constant rollercoaster. I'm always thinking...and planning...and wondering...and wishing...and dreaming....

I am very impatient. Very. If you knew me for only a few minutes you would see this. Ryan reminds me, oh so often, that 'Patients is a Virtue' and I don't have it. ;)

So, you can only imagine how IMPATIENT I am with baby stuff. I want to know the sex, I want to have a name, I want to know what I'm decorating the nursery in, I want to know when the baby will be here, I want to know if he/she is going to be healthy and happy, I want to know EVERYTHING. And I want to know them NOW, I don't want to wait.

I always try to remind myself that SURELY I'm not the only mom-to-be that does this and that I should enjoy this wonderful time of bonding with my baby in my belly. Don't get me wrong -- I am enjoying it VERY much but I feel like I am rushing it and I definitly don't want to do that. I want to meet my baby and hold my baby but I also want to let little bun cook in this oven for a LOOONG time so he/she can be super ready for the big day!

While I'm concentrating on being more patient... I have began shopping. My mom says to sloooow down there is PLENTY of time but I can't help myself! I've been looking at cribs and clothes and diaper bags and decorations and toys and anything else I can think of! I, of course, look at gender neutral stuff but have noticed I lean more towards girly stuff. Is that a sign? And when I talk about the baby to others I say 'she.' Even though I am pushing for a boy, I still reference all this girl stuff, so it makes me wonder!! Of course, I would be completly thrilled with either a boy or girl..or both..yes, I would LOVE to have twins. ;)

This week is week 7 and I have noticed a tad more nausea than usual. This doesn't set with me well! I keep thinking I'm going to make it through this without vomiting but it's not looking good right now (wishful thinking, huh?)

Tuesday is my first OB appointment, which I'm sure I have only mentioned 100 times! I am very excited and PATIENTLY waiting. ;) I'm ready to get a due date and see my sweet baby and get this show on the road. It's almost hard to "feel" pregnant when you haven't spoken with a doctor about ANYTHING! I've read books and have been following those rules but I would rather have a doctor to talk to.

I will take my first prego picture Tuesday night and do my first 'official' prego post. At this point we will know EXACTLY how far along I am so it won't be any I have been doing. This way I can get on track and get busy documenting this awesome experience!! I secretly pray that I am farther along than I think (the whole impatient thing) because I think I would DIE if he told me I was only 3 weeks or something!! HaHa. (not possible)

I guess that is enough rambling for one night -- I will totally understand if I lose followers -- I know I am boring with my prego mumbo jumbo (hmm that MIGHT just be my prego post title!) I can honestly say there is never much else on my mind and isn't that what this lil' bloggy is for?!

Have a Wonderful and Safe Holiday Weekend!!

May God Bless You and Yours.

Hi! I read you on google reader, so I never comment. Congrats on your pregnancy, and enjoy every second. It goes by so fast. Hope the appointment goes well!

I'm so sorry your nausea is picking up...

I actually threw up again last night for the first time in a few weeks- and I'll be 14 weeks this weekend. Hang on, though, I promise it does get better!
