Attention Pregnant Women!

I don't mean to alarm you, but I just came to an important realization: pregnancy leads to BABIES. Holy cow, we're going to have babies. Babies. Actual small people.

And there's a PERSON inside you right now! (or in your case, people Wink )

That freaks me out sometimes if I think too much about it Blum 3

This is exactly what I was afraid of!! This is what I can't come to terms with.

Yes, I get that I am pregnant. I get there is a human inside me, as creepy as it is, but WHAT!?!?! It's coming out?????

LOL This is my 3rd pregnancy and that fact *still* eludes me. I *know* there is a baby in there, but it's like I don't truly believe it until I see that baby.

I remember the moment I pushed DS out and my MW handed him to me. And my only thought was "Wow, it really is a real baby. There really was an actual baby in there!" Lol

And I remember about 2-3 weeks before DD's birth. I was looking at my belly and thinking "No way is there a full sized baby in there. It's just not possible. How can there really be a 7 pound baby inside me right now?"

Yeah. It's one of those weird miraculous things that don't really even hit you until the actual birth, even when you've been through it a few times before.

It was rather shocking when the MW handed me my baby as well!! You "know" its a baby... but once you SEE him/her, it's shocking!!!! I still can't understand that he came out of me. I have no idea how he fit. I'm so glad I didn't have a mirror set up down there... that's really not a memory I want to carry with me haha.

Is it just as awesome the second time? Please say yes!

It is just as awesome... and the third time too! The mirror thing made me crack up, as my hospital always asks me if I want a mirror as baby is crowning and I'm like, NOOOOOO!! Why would I want to see that? It would probably backfire, like I would stop pushing to save my poor vag from the horror of what's being done to it lol!

I was thinking about this as I was gathering my kids up for soccer bright and early. 4 kids, OY! I am excited and nervous at the same time.

This! I remember immediately after DS1 came out, I didn't want to look down there... I was really freaked out that I had just pushed out a little human. It really is weird. And the mirror thing...yeah, um, no thanks.

lol I just finished my Birth Plan and I stressed like 3 times, NO MIRROR, I don't want to touch the baby's head during crowning (I'm such a dork I'd probably punch his soft spot) I want Dh at the head of the bed at ALL times (no sense in scaring him for life, I need a sibling for this kid)

But seriously, a few nights ago I'm laying in bed reading and Connor gave me a swift kick and it scared me. I was like wth is that? Oh yeah, my kid. duh. :eek:
