So, I think that I may finally be accepting the fact that I am pregnant. This is helped by everyone around me pointing out that fact. The guy that served my lunch on Friday said "Had a great weekend. Both of you". Neighbours are stopping me to wish me congratulations. Honestly, I'm amazed at how brave people are to comment on my bump this early on. But it is nice to know that all those extra kilos have been collecting at the right places.
The fluttering has turned into kicking, and it is so reassuring. As I have an anterior placenta, the doppler is quite difficult to use, but with all those kicks throughout the day, I usually feel pretty certain that everything is okay.
I am trying to read some baby books, but will often feel overwhelmed with how much there is to learn, and how much we have to do before the end of July. I am excited too, though. Every day I am reminded how lucky we are to be in this situation, and how if everything continues to go well, what an extraordinary summer we will have.
