Apparently morning sickness is a myth  
Because I feel fine in the morning, just tired.  It takes me a while to get going, but I was like that before I got pregnant so no change there.  I tend to feel nauseous at night and I'm pretty sure that's directly related to my prenatal vitamin...god, I hate taking that horse pill.  I've been cutting, crushing, and mixing it with various foods to try and find an easier way to take it.  Bleh...

Hubbie signed me up for this email thing that sends me notifications every week to let me know what's going on and how the pregnancy is progressing.  I got my first one on Sunday.

You're 10 weeks pregnant!  By the end of this week, your baby will have verifiable fingers and toes. He or she will start to look a lot less like a tadpole and a lot more like a baby very soon!

Finger and toes...that really brought things home for me.  Maybe it was the hormones or maybe it was a reality dose, but I got a little emotional when I read that.  My baby...I'm still getting used to saying that.  I'm going to be a mommy.  It's quite the kick in the head.  I don't mean that in a bad way, its just that for a long time I didn't think things like this would happen to me and now that they are, its somewhat surreal.

*hugs back*

Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm just so bloody tired all the time. I can't wait for the second trimester. All of these oh so draining symptoms are supposed to go away.

I think we're all still getting used to the whole situation... it's really awkward that you're gonna be a mother. You're one of the last people I'd expect to... well... y'know... have a kid.

Kids... they're strange but kinda easy to understand... but very weird... they're strange creatures.

Anywho, check yer email. I sent some yaoi themed goodies this time, eh? ^o^

What an interesting reaction. Why is it so awkward to imagine me as a mother? I mean, I know my reasons, but I'm curious about yours.

Well... to me, you're the "forever young" kinda person. Y'know, the kind that will likely stay in the happy childish giggly state throughout their whole life and all. A baby can really change that... new responsibilities, new stresses... that kinda stuff. In other words, it's a step towards maturity. Y'know, that scary thing that scares me 'cause it's... scary. Just scary.
Maturity is scary...

Not to mention there'll be a lack of the usual good ol' fun that you had for the past few years. It's saddening :(

And what else is saddening is that you'll have a parasitic liform attached to you for the next 20 years or so... so even less time will be spent caring for me (kinda).
It can also be longer, this attachement... I plan on leeching my parents for the next 5 years... ok, maybe 10... I dunno :P

But it's just really awkward to see what I percieved as a perpetually young spirit grow up in such a way. Meow...

But hey, pregnancy is a happy thing, too. You're giving life to something, which is good. And you get a new someone to love ^_^
It's gonna be a new thing and all, that's for sure.

Well, I'm hoping to always retain my youthfulness. Sure, having a child is going to change a lot of things, but I'll always stay a big kid. And maturity isn't something to fear. You just need to learn to tell the difference between the times you need to be serious and adult from the times you can fool around.

Even after the baby is born, I'll still be enjoying my boy smut...writing it, too! No worries^^

OMG... See what I miss when not around???
This is wonderful news!
(The baby, and the lack of morning sickness. *g*)
I promise to be better about checking in more often. It will be fun following your 'pregger diary'!
(and I still need to read the latest chapter of P&C... I'll be back at some point to do so. ^^)

Thanks! I'm counting my lucky stars on the lack of morning sickness. I just need to find a way to take my vitamin so that it doesn't make me ill. I'm sure this is going to be a very interesting ride...for us all. Be sure to stay tuned ^__^
