Tick tock

I went for lunch with my brother earlier this week. He and his wife are expecting a baby in a couple of weeks. So we talked about that, about all the stuff they're doing to get ready, and whether he's nervous, and what the baby will be like. "What about you?' he asked. "When are you going to start popping them out?" I laughed and mumbled something along the lines of "We'll see."

The fact is, I'm getting so impatient. I'm being careful about what I eat (probably not careful enough, but I'm not doing badly), and I'm trying to read up on the subject, but I feel like I'm not really doing a lot, and it's getting on my nerves a bit. There's only so much research you can do, because it basically boils down to "Eat well, exercise in moderation, and go easy on the toxic chemicals."

Wanting a baby has been a strong, almost physical longing in me my whole adult life. I'm finally in a position to do something about it. I just want to hurry up and get started already.

Four months to go.

I can so relate. We're still in the pre-ttc stage, and this is one of those times that I really really wish I could fast-forward to when we can start. *sigh*

Hey, I just came across your blog somehow :) I hate all the waiting that comes along with having babies. First you have all the preparation to begin trying, then it seems like actually GETTING pregnant is a process in and of itself. I always thought it would be so easy to get pregnant because you hear of all the teen pregnancies, but there's really a lot to know about the whole thing. Then of course you have the dreadful 9 months, that seems to be an eternity. But it's all worth it in the end :)
