This weekend J and I had dinner with his parents and a family friend who was in town visiting. She, of course, congratulated us on our pregnancy and had a gift for us. It was a little block book about a new baby arriving, as well as a white onesie, with a little turtle on the front. Below the turtle is said “Worth the wait”. It was our very first baby gift, and a very thoughtful one.
It feels strange to have a piece of clothing for a person who is not here yet, because although we’ve seen the ultrasounds, heard the heartbeat, and have been watching my tummy grow; something about this whole experience still just feels so intangible.
Yesterday, we went to Buy Buy Baby to look at cribs, strollers, ect. just to get some ideas though we’re still a ways off from actually biting the bullet and making a purchase. After we got out of the car, and were walking into the store we passed the expectant mother parking spots when J remarked that we should have parked there. I looked down at my stomach where there is hardly any bump, and shook my head. He said “You always look at your stomach, you ARE pregnant.” It was an interesting observation, and not untrue. I feel like my growing belly is an unmistakeable indication that I really am pregnant, but it is still hard to wrap my brain around it. When will I really recognize that I am a pregnant woman?
