there's something inside of me with a heartbeat.

Yes, its true. Don't worry, we're pretty sure its not an alien. All bets are on a human.

I'm due October 28th and we're pretty excited. It was so surreal hearing the heartbeat for the first time that when I said in shock 'there's something inside of me with a heartbeat', Adam's immediate response was 'yeah, like an alien!'.

Speaking of aliens my body does feel like an alien has taken over. No one fully prepared me for pregnancy, but I guess you can't really be prepared for something like this. Pregnancy is seriously the craziest thing that has ever happened to the human body. I am in amazement of it and think its awesome, when I have the energy left over from surviving all of my symptoms that make it difficult to live. Seriously, any pregnancy symptom you've heard of I'll bet you a hundred bucks I've had it. My alternative blog title was something along the lines of 'pregnancy turns out to be a pretty good diet'; I'm sure that will reverse itself but right now, for me, its true.

For those of you who have never been pregnant, I don't want to scare you, I just want you to be prepared. Also, apparently 'every pregnancy is different for every woman' so there is a chance you will have no nausea or other symptoms or what have you and I will hate you. :) I kid.

All of this to say we are elated and over the moon and super duper excited and out of our minds with joy, etc!

Congrats! Hope you feel better real soon and are able to enjoy this time. I totally relate about the unpreparedness of pregnancy. I definitely felt like someone else was totally in control of my body and emotions while pregnant. It will all be worth it though!

What wonderful news! I am so happy for you! Now you will have lots to update on your blog. I hope you get over the yuckiness soon.

HOORAY! My favorite crazy symptom was the bionic nose. I could smell ANYTHING from a weirdly far distance.
The no energy thing went away for me early in the second trimester.
Congrats to you and Adam!

October 28th is a pretty good day to be born. In fact, I think that very important, wise people have been born on the date. Also, very beautiful people are born on the day. And humble. People like Charlie Daniels, Joaquin Phoenix, Bill Gates, Terrell Davis, Bruce Jenner, Julia Roberts, Brad Paisley AND Monica Blevins :). I'm excited for you guys. Baby boys are a ton of fun. And, I'll forgive you if he isn't born on the 28th.
