a baby in my tummy!

it's true...we're parents-to-be! we couldn't be more excited. i'm 12 weeks along....but somehow it seems longer. maybe it's a combination of the barfy mornings and endless trips to the bathroom.

i can't help but smiling every time i think that there's a little human inside of me. i can't remember the last time something has made me so happy... sometimes i get a little freaked out by the whole thing (mostly the thought of delivery...i mean, is an eight pound thing really coming out of THERE? how is that possible? nevermind, i don't want to know...yet) but then, i get all teary eyed looking at all the little babies out there. do i really get one!? is this for real?

i feel blessed...and tired. have i ever been this tired? if so, i don't remember it. exhaustion like this can only be matched by a 50 year old car.

which leads me to another thing; i feel guilty saying this, but i honestly always thought that pregnant women HAD to be exaggerating or milking the whole pregnancy thing to some extent. but now, i know it's all true. you truly feel nauseated...24/7. you truly feel like you can't get out of bed in the morning...either because your body is so tired, your head is pounding, or you feel like the minute you stand up, you won't be able to stop the puke... it's bizarre, but true.

all in all, i'm so excited for this adventure. i can't wait to hold the little one in my arms...and to see my Mikey with the little one in his arms. this is my dream come true!

Oh Marci, you think it's bad now, wait until after you have the baby!!!

I hope you start feeling better soon. It's hard being a pregnant teacher, isn't it??? I remember coming home every day and laying on the couch for HOURS!!!

Anyway, we are SOOOO excited for you guys. I can't wait for Drew and baby Chapman to play. Are you going to find out what you're having?
