Where the baby is on its way to life!

Tuesday, December 07, 2004

So, Mr. X23 has been keeping you sort of up-to-date with the development of Baby X23. I thought you'd like to hear how things are going from the mom. No puking! Although, until yesterday, I was nauseated every moment of the day except when food or water was going down my throat. My back hurts, probably because I've already ballooned almost to an F cup! Jealous? Mr. X23 says he's happy about that. he says that the baby will look up and think he or she is in Heaven. Me? I'm getting a reduction as soon as the second Baby X23 is born!

We bought a device from Babies R Us that allows us to hear the baby's heart beat. We think we're hearing something, but there is so much other noise, like food processing through my intestines, that we're not sure. It also has baby speakers so that we can talk to it and play it music. Mr. X23's idea. I think it's funny but it makes sense, too.

On Thursday, I'm going for my first ultrasound. We're bringing a VHS tape just in case there's something to see. Sorry, no pictures on the net for you. My womb is private.

I should clarify that I'm very excited about this baby. I'd jump up and down but that hurts, even with a bra. I think I'm just very calm about it because there's nothing I can do except take care of myself for the next seven and a half months and watch myself expand. I think that once I see some major changes in my body, I'll feel more like it's really happening. Mr. X23 is terribly excited, though. He's getting weepy and happy and huggy and it's so CUTE! He wants to be a great father and talks about his hopes and fears a lot. I know he's going to be a wonderful dad. I know this because of the amount of love he has for me and for his baby. I don't even know if my own dad was as excited about his kids as Mr.X23 is and he did a pretty awesome job. As for me, I'm just going to love my kids and do the best I can from there.

Okay, so that's it for now. Should I vomit finally, I'll let you know. :-)
