I am about 7 weeks along- give or take a few days.
I am amazed at how such a tiny little thing living inside me can cause SO MANY changes and feelings and sickness and so forth. How does this happen!?!?
I am feeling a bit better every day as far as the morning sickness goes, but I don't feel up for talking about food just yet, smelling it, reading about it, and/or preparing it. Although I think I could eat the black bean soup from Billy Jack's all day and all night and be just fine. Oh, with the homemade bread of course.
I am hoping to have a human baby. No aliens or puppies, please! (Someday I'll have to tell you about 4 pregnancies worth of crazy dreams.) If this baby is a boy or girl I will be THRILLED and relieved. And of course I know you only mean well when you wish upon a woman with all boys that you hope she has a girl, but I already know that's what everyone is thinking, so no need to say it really. I don't know where 'having all boys' got a bad rep anyway. Mine are angels! I hope I have a healthy baby. All boy or all girl sounds great to me!
We are planning a midwife-assisted home birth. I probably will do water birth- not sure yet. Hubby jokes that he doesn't think we need any assistance, really, except for maybe afterwards, and I'll admit a huge part of me wonders if we'll end up having this baby on our own anyway. Since my labors have gotten shorter & shorter, it's possible. I delivered Gray by myself in the hospital but then a doctor ran in to help afterward. I'll definitely try to give my midwife as much notice as possible!
