Honestly, if it weren’t for the pee sticks (and the beta tests. Oh, and those ultrasound thingys), I wouldn’t believe you if you told me I was pregnant. Since I know, there are some other clues (falling asleep on the couch every evening, an increased appetite), but I honestly don’t feel any different.
I think I’m still in the unicorn stage. I mean, I’m looking at car seats and strollers online, and I’m reading all the books with the cute little babies on the covers, but that doesn’t mean I actually believe there are going to be little people living in our house with us by the end of the year.
I know other women experience this. Perhaps when I can feel them move? Will it seem more real then? Or will I be sitting in my living room in October trying to figure out where the crying’s coming from, and why it’s happening in my house?
Did it take too long for this to happen for it to ever feel normal?
