GRITS= Girl Raised In The South...just to clarify .
My name is Heather Nixon. I am 22 and have been married for almost 2 years. Today is the first official day off BC. I couldn't be more thrilled. Yesterday I told my best friend that I've known since 1999 that David and I were TTC. There was the usual girl stuff: lots of jumping, screaming, hugging and general acting crazy. It was such a relief to be able to tell someone. I dont remember how many times I told David I was about to burst...that I had to tell SOMEONE!! I couldn't think of anyone else I wanted to be the first to know of our plans to TTC. It was so nice to have someone that close be that happy for you. David has also chosen his closest friend and coworker to share the news. This friend already has two of his own and will surely be a great source of advice, having recently had his second child. Isnt it strange that we are more open to recieving advice from friends than our own parents? I know I am.
David and I did have a rather heated discussion the other night about my birth plan. I told him that I didnt want anyone else there; meaning the delivery or the entire day. He didnt much like that. Saying he didnt want to have to tell my parents to "piss" off, that they couldnt see me. I felt so guilty for having shared what I wanted the day I bring our first child into the world. He kept saying that they cared for me and would want to be there....so??? If i have to turn them away myself I will. We'll save this for a post all its own.
Till tomorrow..bless all our mommies and MTB!
