First day in the real world as mom-to-be.

Dad and I found out on Friday that you are really in there. Its really shocking to both of us, and we're not entirely sure how to handle all of the stress that we are sure is going to come from this. But I can't stop thinking about you. I know you're only the size of a grain of rice, but I find myself holding my tummy through out the day. You are going to be so loved and spoiled when you come out to meet the world. I can't wait to see your beautiful face.

Today I went to planned parenthood. I had to have proof that you were growing in there so that I could go to a doctor. Without health insurance, this seems like an impossible thing. Thanks to medicare, I don't have to pay any of my medical bills. And they will pay for some of the doctor visits that I will take you to when you come out into the world.

Your dad and I have a lot of things to consider.. where we are going to go, what we are going to do about telling the family, etc. Everyone is going to be so excited to have you be a part of this world, but it is going to be really hard to get them to that point... its going to take a little while.

Today was my first day of really feeling nauseous. I hope it doesn't get any worse than it is now. I also already feel like I'm gaining a lot of weight. Probably because you make me so hungry! I eat like a cow! I am also very exhausted all of the time. I feel like I can't get enough sleep. That is supposed to let up after the first trimester. I really hope that it does.
