In a heartbeat. A moment. A minute. A phone call. Everything changes.
What seems like it would never happen, finally happens. Your world gets turned upside down. Irrevocably changed. Forever, but definitely for the better.
In the same moment, it is terrifying, empowering, scary, challenging, mind boggling and fabulous. It's earth shattering and real. It's emotional and scary. It's overwhelming and amazing. After disappointment and heartache, it's the bright shining beacon of light we've been praying for.
But above everything else, it's wonderful. It's marvelous.
It's a baby. Our baby. Due in mid October. We are beyond thrilled.
Thank you all for your support on our long (and sometime arduous) journey. I have appreciated all the supportive comments and emails more than you can imagine. I have wanted to share this with you for the longest time but wanted to wait until the time was right.
Any advice will be gratefully received. You may not have guessed but we are complete novices at this baby raising thing and all the books in the world mean nothing compared to real life experiences, as far as I see it.
And yes - the reason for the lack of posting over the last few weeks was due to morning, or as I like to call it, all day sickness. Horrible stuff. I'm pleased to report it has almost totally abated. Finally.
And now, we settle in for the exciting 6 month wait until our little one decides to join us!
