I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT TO HAVE A BABY!!!!!
Okay, no, I'm not pregnant. But our plan is to try in 2008. Our wedding is May 17, 2008 and I see no POINT in wasting any precious time in procreating (hell, I'll be 31 and D will be 32...we're both READY). I'm not exactly one of those "OH-MY-GOD-MY-BIOLOGICAL-CLOCK-IS-TICKING-
TIME-IS-RUNNING-OUT!" people. I just really love children; I always have. I tear up for every episode of Baby Story or Bringing Home Baby. I hold my friend's children for hours, willingly change diapers (yes, I know "eagerness" will change when I have own LOL). I literally feel an ACHE when I see mothers with their children and long for that myself. I've written POEMS about how badly I want children. I remember being a little girl and the one thing I said I wanted THE MOST to be when I grew up was...A MOMMY.
And that hasn't changed. What brought on this outburst you ask??? I went to my yearly gyno appointment today (this is the personal part LOL). I told him of our plans to TTC starting in late May. He asked me if I take vitamins and I was ashamed to admit that I do not. He then wrote me out a prescription for prenatal vitamins to start taking to prepare my body. Wow. I left the office and immediately called my mom, feeling choked up. My mom already knows of our plans but I just wanted to say it again out loud, that we are going to start trying to get preggo in May. I have not even told all of our friends/family our plans yet...they know we want to start working on it but I don't think anyone knows how SOON we want to start. It's getting closer and closer (I'm more excited about trying to get pregnant than I am for the wedding! LOL Don't get me wrong, being married to D will be the happiest day of my life, but I'm even MORE excited to see him as a Daddy. See, here I go, getting emotional again. LOL)
Anyway...I just really can't wait to become a Mommy. :-)
