Yea, I have a lodge! Thank you!
Well, I'm here at 37 weeks, ready to pop this kid out. I should have started journalling a long time ago, but I will try to remember where I've come from.
I am Elizabeth, my husband is Nathan, and this is our first baby. We're both 24. I spent the past two years working as a teacher (physics and geometry) and DH is a police officer. We've been married two years. DH would have been happy to start trying for a baby as soon as we got married, but I wanted to wait and use my degree (and pay off student loans!)
But last summer, in August, something just flipped over in my mind. I went from "I want a kid someday, but not for a few more years" to "I want a baby NOW" in a matter of days. Very strange period of time. I stopped taking my bc pills, started tracking my temp every morning, and DH saw to it that we DTD as often as possible!
Two weeks after my last pill, I ovulated, and two weeks after that, I got a positive test. I was really expecting to have to wait a few months, but I guess not! But talking with my parents and the in-laws, I should have known. They never had any trouble getting pregnant either!
Since then I've been trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I'm going to have a baby. I'm sitting here surrounded by diapers and the crib and getting head-butted in the bladder, but I still don't have a full grasp of the concept. I don't think I will until they lay this squirmy little guy on me and I get to look at him!
The head-butting the bladder is calling me to run. I'll write more soon! Thanks again for my lodge! And thanks for reading!
