"I can't wait to hear the first heartbeat, feel the first kick... the whole idea of being a mom excites me!
My husband and I have been together for about 7 years now and married for 9 months. We were married on Halloween 09' and it was so much fun. We have 2 black labs and a cat who are our little furry family. We met back in college, after a few friends introduced us. I remember the first moment I saw him that January. (Though he doesn't remember actually meeting me until that following March which is an excellent confidence booster!) We were so different that we kind of balanced each other out -- like a nice piece of fudge -- sweet with a few nuts.
I have been having a lot of health problems for the past 7 month and once I started to recover, my doctors suggested that I started to try. We (meaning me) talked a lot about having a baby and I now had a doctor's excuse to get my groove on! We officially started trying this May. I think my DH is excited about having a child and will be a great Dad -- he may be a little more excited about us doing it more though.
The road ahead
We do have a few barriers in our way, though. Before we even started to try, doctors warned it might not be easy. I have Celiac disease which is an autoimmune disorder, as well as suspected ENDO. In the end I try and keep my hopes up and we are still pretty early to the game. It has all made me feel closer to my husband and has brought out an amazing side of him. It's awesome to think that we are going to try and create a little life! It has made me into a pee on a stick crazy women though. I think I took about 15 pregnancy test the first month trying and I was pretty sure my DH was going to kill me. He told me he was going to buy a lock box! I seriously hate the wait. I think that I would rather be in a manure pile on a 90 degree day then sit through the 2 week wait!
I can't wait to hear the first heartbeat, feel the first kick... the whole idea of being a mom excites me! I love the tiny hands and feet and baby smell. The way babies look up at you and smile and need you when they are sad. The first dirty diaper that makes my husband gag. It is all beautiful. I am excited about every last living thing about being a mom. (P.S. We can return kids when they turn 14 right? J/k!)
