Settling in (July 14)

You settled in this week. I had cramping last week which was disconcerting. I was seriously tired this past weekend, but week 5 seems to suit you. I picture you as being in a protective shell like a bird egg. I'm getting more confident that I'll be able to carry you through this.

I had a dream last night that you are a girl. I was relieved that you were, because that meant I wouldn't have a little boy peeing on me when I change diapers. I also dreamed that labor was easy but breastfeeding was a mess!

I see the doctor for the first time today. I am very excited.

I knew (July 4)

I knew when I was taking a walk with Erin around the Woodland Park Rose Garden on Wednesday. Later that night I knew when I took a sniff of leftover caprese salad and almost gagged. I texted your Aunt Jenn and asked her if I could be pregnant. She said it was too early. The next morning I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, but I knew. Then this morning when I couldn't sleep I got up at 4:45am and took another test, and there you were. I ran back upstairs, jumped on the bed and woke up your dad to tell him.
