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!
