Well, I never would have guessed I'd be ready for this step in my life but I've been thinking about it more and more often. Finally my husband said he had been thinking about it and here we are, 7 weeks into our new journey!
This is such a crazy feeling to know that from here on out your life will never be the same. Okay, so that is kind of scary, too! It's not horrible scary, just sobering scary. I've never really been a carefree, responsibility-be-damned sort of girl, so this will responsibility will not be completely life altering, but the thought of another living being relying on you 100% for everything is kind of weird. Talk about growing up in a hurry. I really don't know how younger women, or even younger girls, do this. I am 31 and I just barely think I'm ready for this!
We are very excited, despite the nerves. My husband just seemed to realize that this was all real last week and now is all into shopping and getting the room ready. Now that he is ready, he is ready now! He will have a hard time adjusting to another 7+ months to wait!
We did get some of the room prepared, as in all of my things have been moved out of it! The room that will ultimately be the baby's was my art room. I had a LOT of stuff in there. It is so strange to see it empty and now I can not do anything more with it for at least three months because everything will be dependent on boy vs. girl! Oh well, at least this way I had control over where all of my things were organized.
