A Couple of Reasons

Now that I am getting more and more used to the idea that I am pregnant, I am starting to enjoy it. Well, not all of it, as the nausea and fatigue is a bit much for this momma, but I am learning to roll with punches. Now if only I could stay up past 9 without having to put toothpicks in my eyes I might REALLY smile :) Just kidding... sort of.

When I found out I was pregnant, there were several things that crossed my mind immediately, and they had nothing to do with nursery bedding or if it was a boy or a girl. You see, I am a planner by nature. I love to know exactly what I am doing and when, and have a calendar to make sure I keep everything in order. It's just how I roll. So when that test popped up pregnant, I quickly calculated how far along I'd be on October 23. October 23 may not be a big day in most people's calendars, but in mine it is a HUGE day. My sister Megan is getting married, and I am the matron of honor. GASP. I know. Like the worst thing that could happen to you if you're a bridesmaid right? In my calculations I realized I'd be... get ready... 34 weeks (almost 35). ACCK. To make matters worse, Megan kind of let me and our other sister help pick out the bridesmaid dress, and so it's actually one I like! I was SO bummed to find out I'd have to buy a HUGE dress. SO bummed. Anyways, today I went to get fitted. I was kind of surprised that they only ordered 3 sizes up. I used the belly pillow, and am just hoping that I don't grow TOO big, otherwise I might have to borrow a brown silk sheet for the wedding (Just kidding Meg. I'd sit out or something if that happened!).

The other reason I was bummed was that we were planning on going down to Baton Rouge for Christmas, and the possibilities of that happening are slim now. I just don't feel comfortable traveling with a 4 week old and a 20 month old on a 10 hour car trip in the middle of winter. NO fun. Not to mention I probably won't feel like to it physically to begin with!

So the pregnancy put a stalemate on the plans. Which is OK I think. I mean, ultimately I am not really in control of anything anyway right?
