Who am I?

I sniff everything! Especially fabric, the sheets, clothes, my pillow .. something is making them stink!  No I didn’t change the fabric softener or laundry detergent but what is that smell?  Oh wait … I’M PREGNANT!  It’s so crazy really.  This is a hard pregnancy for sure.  I am still throwing up everyday but its getting better.  I can’t eat most anything but live on rice cakes and  coca cola.  I had a craving for a lemon meringue pie and Rob bought one.  Today, so far, I have had two small slices and wow! It helps!  I heard lemon is great for nausea and I have to agree.  I even got this homeopathic spray that helps and I sniff that stuff.  Haha!

The three different medications my doctor has prescribed aren’t doing the trick either but that’s OK.  I will get through it!

I do not know who I am right now.  I don’t look the same, walk the same, feel the same, think the same .. nothing.   This is truly one of the most strangest times of my life and I couldn’t be happier.  Rob and I have never been closer.  We still hold hands every time we are near each other, smile from ear to ear and are just incredibly happy.  I will be 10 weeks on Thursday and it seems so surreal this is all happening.  Jonna said it perfectly the other day when I showed her a rocking chair  I loved.  She said, “It just seems like yesterday you guys were leaving for Prague and now you’re looking for rocking chairs!”  Well, it really was yesterday wasn’t it?  It’s been a blur.

All my life I really wanted what I have in my life now.  For years and years I would look at couples raising children and it seemed foreign to me.  I assumed they weren’t really happy and would wonder how long they would last.  I guess I was cynical about relationships and thought they were only temporary.   Never TRULY serious.   Guess what?  I was wrong.   Rob and I absolutely represent that couple I had always imagined, thought didn’t exist and was only for fairy tales.  THIS is a fairy tale and he is definitely my prince but its so very, very real.  We cannot wait to meet our bean.
